I hope you enjoy the things my mother taught me.
I would appreciate hearing from you all who read this blog. What do you think? What subjects do you want to hear more on. You don’t have to post your name to leave me a comment.
Please stay in touch and have a good weekend…Lee
It has been a while since I heard from you, and I would appreciate it if you would call me every week. I want to hear about the children and how you are doing with your work. How is Priscilla doing? I know you are busy and that my request may be unreasonable, but I did bring you into the world after all, so I know what busy is all about.
I have learned that there is nothing more important than family, even though we all sometimes think that our jobs and careers are more important. In the end, we learn that it is family and friends that are the main thing. After your career is over and you don’t have that big title anymore, you may not hear from people as much as you did before; and I assure you that they might not be as nice to you when you are not the Executive Vice President any longer. Did you ever wonder, Lee, if people are nice to you or nice to the Executive Vice President? There is a difference you know. You do know, don’t you?
If you are a great leader and pay attention to the people and stay sensitive to the human issues, then you stand a chance of being invited to things after you retire. So, anyway, I just wanted you to remember to stay in touch with your family and friends. Put it in your calendar to call me. You teach lots of people to schedule their priorities, don’t you? So put me in that little Day-Timer you carry in your back pocket; and after you call me, call your grandmother because she adores you. . . . Mother
PS: You can even call collect.
