Recently I came across this interesting article about this is an interesting theory by Charles Schult
Take a couple of minutes of your time and read the following question and just try to answer it. I have redesign the questions to fit my set of readers
|Creator of "Peanuts" Comic Strip|
1. Name the five wealthiest people in the world.
2. Name the last five All England winners.
3. Name the last five winners of the Miss Malaysia.
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 Super League (Malaysian Football League) winners.
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.
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.
