ago I began asking my evening adult college students
which was better, two B's
or an A and a C.
Almost all said 2 B's.
Then I rephrased the question.
a serious operation; which do you want,
one with good bedside manner and
good operating procedures or
one with a C in bedside manner and superior
I'll take the A and the infamous Dr. House every time.

Auditing ability means little to me as does their looks,
personality, or golf game ...
A young lady heard these examples and at the
break thanked me
as she had been told
that her poor math ability made her very
and being very good at English was not good enough.
She also said page two of
Quick Notes Philosophy
at the front of the workbook I had written
made her feel much better about
Sacrificing self confidence to make someone a little better
is one of the biggest mistake of our generation.
