John Wanamaker, founder of the stores that bear his name, once confessed: “I learned thirty years ago that it is foolish to scold. I have enough trouble overcoming my own limitations without fretting over the fact that God has not seen fit to distribute evenly the gift of intelligence.
Wanamaker learned this lesson early, but I personally had to blunder through this old world for a third of a century before it even dawned upon me that ninety-nine times out of a hundred, people don’t criticize themselves for anything, no matter how wrong it may be.

I would like to begin this year’s DROPLETS by sharing some of my favorite excerpts from one of my favorite “old” books: How to Win Friends and Influence People written by Dale Carnegie.
These droplets carry very strong aroma of universal, timeless, and very obvious life’s insights. Yet, in spite of the universal applicability; despite the timelessness, and regardless of how obvious these principles are, still many people don’t seem to get it. I too, need to be reminded of these principles.
Join me while I remind myself with some very powerful, universal, timeless, and self-evident life’s principles. Just click the Droplets Category. See you there!
