Margaret knows to keep
Al Walker’s ego in check
Tom Peters advises us to “Lighten up.”
Tom despises stuffed shirts.
Maybe they like themselves too much.
There’s nothing wrong with confidence.
Just don’t get carried away.
Tom trusts people who put their feet up.
Laugh at their own screw-ups.
So do the rest of us.
It’s great to be able to laugh at yourself.
Al Walker tells this stuffed short story on himself.
After he won some big award he asked his wife:
“In your wildest dreams did you ever imagine . . .
. . . marrying a man like me?”
“No, Al,” Margaret said, keeping a smile in check.
“I never imagined marrying a man like you.”
Good for Margaret.
She knows how to keep Al’s ego in check.
We need Margarets in our lives to check our egos.
I married one. Her name is MacLeod.
You’ll see her photo with me to the left of this.
And she keeps my ego in check . . . constantly.
I hope you have a Margaret or MacLeod of your own.
