You Can't Cry Over Spilt Milk!

Monday, December 1, 2008

Last night the TV show 60-Minutes interviewed Ted Turner. The Atlanta-based, Ted Turner.

Okay, so you and I have never captained an America's Cup winner ... or own a jet ... or own a major league baseball team ... or own thousands of acres of land ... or give billions of dollars to charities ... or married daughters of famous actors ... or a lot of other stuff that has nothing to do with you and me.

What I got out of the interview was a man who seemed to be enjoying his life while taking more than his share of serious hits to his forward movement.

He said during the show on more than one occasion, "You can't cry over spilt milk." Have you ever heard that one before? Do you endorse the concept? In other words, he was reminding us that no matter who you are, you can't win them all.

Hey, you may not have a familiar name like Turner but you still have a lot to offer in the years ahead. Although you can cry over spilt milk, it really won't do you much good.

The economy? What are you going to do? Slow business? What are you going to do? Don't cry. Don't whine. Don't complain. Just do what you can do to make more people glad they know you. That is all you can do and that may just be all you will have to do.
Thank you Mr. Turner for the whack in the head. "You can't cry over spilt milk."

So, get up ... get out ... and get going.
