One Ring Affects The Other
I was listening to an interview with a potential member of the incoming president's cabinet. When asked if he was going to take the job, he replied, "This is not a professional choice. There are family and personal considerations I must review before making a decision."
Bravo! So many decisions are made by people without giving a thought to how that choice will affect other areas of their life. I wonder how things would be different for them if they would first stop and say, "What impact will this choice have on the other rings in my circus?" My guess is that their decisions would get a much better standing ovation from others-and themselves.
