simple truths

I have been enjoying reading Live Love Lead, an online blog by Dan Cathy. Dan is the president of Chick-fil-A, son of the company's founder Truett Cathy. The apple doesn't fall far from the tree. This is not about chicken or cows, but real life stories told by this down-to-earth Southerner.

I loved his story about Thanksgiving and family traditions, Creating a Beautiful Work of Art.

And the one about this busy time of year when you see lots of lines - all those folks standing in lines waiting to pay for gifts, waiting for food, waiting to see Santa, remember to Look Past the Line.

When reading Mr. Cathy's thoughts, I wonder does this very busy man really write a daily blog? And take the time to post on Facebook? Or does he get his secretary to do it? The stories are very genuine and personal, so I think he really does, maybe while sitting at his desk he is really blogging instead of working, what a great idea!

I was going to quote him, but his blog has an extensive legal section, which after reading I was too confused to try it, so just follow the links!

Check out his blog, it is worth the visit - Live Love Lead by Dan T. Cathy

That is a great suggestion. Thanks for sharing! And it seems strange to me that someone would take the time to share their thoughts publicly ... and then fog up their site with legalese that is meant to limit how their thoughts are shared with others. Oh well, I'm sure there are good reasons for this. Andrew (To Love, Honor, and Dismay)
