Pondering Quiz

By
Real Estate Agent with HomeSmart Real Estate BR030809000 AZ Broker BR030809000

A sweet older client sent  me this fun little 'ponder' quiz that I thought many of my fellow AR members would appreciate.  Especially Michael Jacobs our resident ponderer.  Enjoy!

 

 

 

 

 

The following is the philosophy of Charles Schulz, creator of the 'Peanuts' comic strip. You don't have to actually answer the questions. Just ponder on them. Just read the e-mail straight through, and you'll get the point.


1. Name the five wealthiest people in the world.
2. Name the last five Heisman trophy winners.
3. Name the last five winners of the Miss America pageant.
4. Name ten people who have won the Nobel or Pulitzer Prize.
5. Name the last half dozen Academy Award winners for best actor and actress.
6. Name the last decade's worth of World Series winners.

 

How did you do? The point is, none of us remember the headliners of yesterday.
These are no second-rate achievers.They are the best in their fields. But the applause dies. Awards tarnish ...Achievements are forgotten.
Accolades and certificates are buried with their owners.


Here's another quiz. See how you do on this one:


1. List a few teachers who aided your journey through school.
2. Name three friends who have helped you through a difficult time.
3. Name five people who have taught you something worthwhile.
4. Think of a few people who have made you feel appreciated and special.
5. Think of five people you enjoy spending time with.

 

Easier? The lesson: The people who make a difference in your life are not the ones with the most credentials, the most money ... or the most awards. They simply are the ones who care the most.

Ah Rocky Dickerson for many years we had a poster of Yoda up for our teens.  It said something like There is No Try.......................Just Do!  Happy New Year!

Anna the people in the second list are the true super stars and heroes in my life.  I couldn't answer even one of the questions in the first list.

While reading the 'First' quiz I began to get flustered.

The second quiz had no stress as it was a good reminder of the people that got me here today and some are still there for me

Good morning Anna Banana Kruchten CRS CRB, Phoenix Broker - the takeaway here is people don't remember what you did but they will remember how you made them feel.

Agree 100+% This is so true to human psychology and yet we tend to forget what is impotant. Happy New Year!

Very good pondering, and so true. The famous people in the news really have no impact on our lives. I see the headlines, but don't care enough to remember the names. Real people, however, do count.
