Are you teaching, nurturing your successor/s?

  • "A good word in the right place" has always been a kind of motto for me..Just a small word of encouragement or even a smile sometimes is all it can take. Age is of no importance when just a glance or smile is all one needed!

  • Our student government advisor when I was in college (back when dinosaurs ruled the earth) had a lot of little pithy sayings, and one of them was "Success without a successor is failure," which I think is a good way of putting it.

  • I noticed you always compliment Chef. You live your words.

    I like the quote John. Might use it with my friend :-)

  • I've been teaching my children from day one to take over my place in this world. Making sure they have the skills that they need to take care of themselves and the compassion to take care of those around them. All of my children, oldest being 16, know how to cook, do laundry, dishes, lawn work, and other activities that we do around the house. They have also been taught our nature based religion since they were young as well, so they understand the world around them and are prepared to take it on when it is their turn. "Be the change that you wish to see in the world."-- Mohandas K. Gandhi
