The Measure of a Man

We were throwing around an idea the other day about wrong doings- nobody seems to get enough of talking about human imperfections or incompetence. Pointing out the wrong and maliciously expect the worse out of people is getting to be a hobby.

Browsing through print and on line newspapers, we get updated on the hottest news and those who have made the headlines. One way or the other, being the news can only mean 2 things. One, you’ve either done something wrong, like getting involved in a scandal or a eww moment (Paris H. and starlets) uploaded on YouTube OR you’ve done something great that is so humanly impossible- how about being the 1st African-American President (President-Elect Barack Obama)? How about losing billions and still have your business running (Bill Gates lost billions yet Microsoft is the leading OS standard to any desktop, lap top and iPod)?

The discussion concluded with the idea that success can be measured by numbers is way off the mark from the truth. Success is what those who strive to be better people get. Like, c’mon if you had a good heart and concern for your fellow men would you ever think of selling something that is free (Blagojavich)?
