Welcome to Wise Men Wednesday, your weekly dose of timeless wisdom to thrive both at work and at home.
Posts from this week:
I’m sitting in the fanciest restaurant in my small town and spreading chilled chicken liver pâté and fig jam onto a toasted French baguette. The businessman I’m meeting for the first time is pouring me a second glass of wine from the second $100 bottle.
I ignore his bellowing voice that is making the other diners in the restaurant stared. He probably isn’t always like this, he’s just having a good time and trying to show off.
The sexist comments he is making about his wife can’t be typical.
My potential new client is talking about all the places he’s traveled, his multiple homes, the people he knows in Italy, and how big and fancy his house on the island is.
“You and your wife should come to stay with us for a few days sometimes. You’d really enjoy our pool!”
I think, “There is no way I would ever want to do that.”
But for some reason, I ignore my gut feeling and later accept to work with him. Only now do I know how big of a mistake that was…

Words of wisdom:
“Spend each day trying to be a little wiser than you were when you woke up. Discharge your duties faithfully and well. Slug it out one inch at a time, day by day. At the end of the day—if you live long enough—most people get what they deserve.”
Have a great rest of the week!
