Earn & Grant

Almost everything on earth has to be earned but not granted.

Trust is earned, but never granted. This is especially true in both internal organization and external market. Trust perhaps is the shortcut to achieving positive PID touchpoint experience. After all, why is relationship so important? Positive relationship builds trust.

Money is earned, but never granted. Even in the case of gambling, you can't win the lottery if you don't buy a ticket. Buying requires efforts.

Name is earned, but never granted. Jack Welch, the famously successful former CEO of General Electric, earned the reputation of "America's most admired executive" because of his winning attitude, but his affair with Suzy Wetlaufer had his reputation flame out. Smart, or dumb move? Love has no right or wrong... as long as the experience is positive.

Is there anything granted and doesn't require hard work to earn?

Appearance is one. WYSIWYG... unless one decides to go for a facial surgery. WYSIWYG, pronounced wiz-ee-wig, means What You See Is What You Get.

But the most powerful of all is LOVE, particuarly love at first sight.
