    This Weeks Helpful Reads… Week 420

    Mark Twain

    Mark Twain

    This is an ongoing series of interesting and helpful reads that I have come across on the Internet. I try to include the most helpful articles and links each week to provide the widest range of information for the home business entrepreneur.

     Change a Habit – Build a Brand by Chris Brown… A few years ago Chris had a goal of losing weight. (who doesn’t?!) It was something that she tried working on for years, without a lot of success. But a while back something clicked. It happened when she stopped working on the outcome… and instead worked on the habits and routines that would lead to the outcome.

    I hope you find some of these articles informational and helpful. I think they will be enjoyable reading nonetheless.

    New Principal

    As a new school principal, Mr. Mitchell was checking over his school on the first day.

    Passing the stockroom, he was startled to see the door wide open and teachers bustling in and out, carrying off books and supplies in preparation for the arrival of students the next day. The school where he had been a Principal the previous year had used a check-out system only slightly less elaborate than that at Fort Knox.

    Cautiously, he asked the school’s long time Custodian, “Do you think it’s wise to keep the stock room unlocked and to let the teachers take things without requisitions?”

    The Custodian looked at him gravely… “We trust them with the children, don’t we?”

    Hope that put a smile on your face and brightened the start of the work week just a bit.
