Walking the Talk


"Well done is better than well said."

Benjamin Franklin


Long time readers know of my affection for Ben Franklin, his life and his work. While I am greatly tempted to make a political comment here, I’ll generalize instead.

It seems to me that we live in a kind of celebrity culture where being well-spoken can temporarily blind us to what is actually being proposed and “done.” With the constant flow of information we are assailed with minute-by-minute, our critical thinking and decision making skills are needed more than ever.

I’d appreciate knowing your experience and thoughts in this key domain.

With love and respect,

Robert
