Leonhardt On Life!

Recently, I had lunch with Dave Leonhardt, our former chair, friend, and business development person for N.E.W.
He is spending all his time with his wife, Phyllis, who is ailing and in the assisted living part of a facility here in Green Bay.

As part of the conversation that involved Dave in repartee with the restaurant owner, he shared two of his favorite aphorisms, which I thought I would share with you:

• Life ISN'T Fair. We are NOT created Equal. There are NO Guarantees. Now, let's GET ON with Living.

• When hiring someone, ask yourself:
Would you be willing to work for him/her yourself?
Would you trust him/her with your money?
Will he/she represent you accurately regarding your principles, values, ethos?
If so, then hire the person. Nothing can't be overcome! And their direct reports will be in this same mold, too.
