Charles Schultz – lesson about caring!

Charles Schultz – lesson about caring!

Monday, 04 July 2011 11:50

Not sure if you saw the email some time ago about the Philosophy of Charles Schultz – the creator of the “Peanuts” comic strip. Anyway, I thought it was so good so I’m copying it here.

You don’t have to actually answer the questions. Just read the questions through, and you’ll get the point.

* Note: I’ve changed some questions slightly as the originals were American oriented.

1. Name the five wealthiest people in the world.
2. Name the last five ARIA winners.
3. Name the last five winners of the Miss America contest.
4. Name ten people who have won the Nobel or Pulitzer Prize.
5. Name the last half dozen Academy Award winner for best actor and actress.
6. Name the last decade’s worth of Brownlow/Dalley M winners in the AFL/ARL.

How did you do?

The point is, none of us remember the headliners of yesterday. These are no second-rate achievers. They are the best in their fields. But the applause dies. Awards tarnish. Achievements are forgotten. Accolades and certificates are buried with their owners.

Here’s another quiz. See how you do on this one:

1. List a few teachers who aided your journey through school.
2. Name three friends who have helped you through a difficult time.
3. Name five people who have taught you something worthwhile.
4. Think of a few people who have made you feel appreciated and special.
5. Think of five people you enjoy spending time with.
6. Name half a dozen heroes whose stories have inspired you.

Easier?

The lesson:

The people who make a difference in your life are not the ones with the most credentials, the most money, or the most awards. They are the ones that CARE.
