Last night I had dinner with Chris Cree. What a thrill that was. It reminded me of one of my favorite quotes.
People from the same family are rarely born under one roof. Richard Bach, Illusions
That’s how the conversation felt from the first word to the last. The food was excellent, as was the company.
We talked about life, work, family, and philosophy. We talked about times when we feel sorry for ourselves. I told him the best cure for that was Phil Gerbyshak. To prove it, we called up Phil and Chris only had to hear his voice to see what I meant.
Then Chris and I did some conspiring about Successful-Blog. Yep. We came up with a really cool idea or two — ways to broaden the scope and depth, to offer more, and more fun to readers. I’ll be announcing what’s happening in a day or so . . .
Meanwhile this morning, I went back to find the first comment that Chris left on this blog. Here it is.
. . . It doesnÃ¢â¬â¢t matter if the conversation ends up being about work. The take-away is that it is about making a connection. If a connection is made, it will most likely help work too.
Talk about a simple yet powerful tool to hang on our belts! Thanks. –Chris Cree, comment on “Better Than Hi! How Are Ya?Ã¢â¬Â April 25, 2006
I guess that kind of explains everything.
