Karin’s grandaddy passed away last week. She is a colleague. Karin wrote a powerful tribute to her grandaddy.
I would have liked Karin’s grandaddy. Anyone who values drinking a Coke with peanuts inside is my kind of a grandaddy! It’s a Seabourn family treat also. For the Seabourns, little red spanish peanuts are the kind for Cokes!
I’m a granddad to 4 wonderful grandchildren. I hope to be a grandad to them like Karin’s grandaddy was to her.
In Stephen Covey’s Seven Habits of Highly Effective People, Habit 2 is begin with the end in mind.
To begin with the end in mind means to start with a clear understanding of your destination. It means know where you are going so that you can better understand where you are now and so that the steps you take are always in the right direction.
Imagine your eulogy at your funeral. What would your friends say? What would you like them to say? Your family? Your co-workers?
Question: What do you want said at your funeral? What are you doing today to become that person?
Aww, thanks Keith!
But I don’t know what my grandaddy would say about spanish peanuts. My hunch is that if it wasn’t discovered by George Washington Carver himself, he would steer clear of it!
