    I was watching "Harvey" the other day. It's a movie I hadn't seen in years. I think we could all learn from the character of Elwood P. Dowd. Everywhere he goes he enthusiastically strikes up a conversation with anyone who will listen. He then offers them his card (with no agenda) and invites them to dinner/drink. His philosophy is(paraphrased) "You can be oh so smart, or oh so pleasant. For years I was smart-I recommend pleasant."

    What did I get from that? It makes me think of all the connections I've missed out on by satisfying my intellectual ego. Having to be right. A mentor of mine says "I'd rather be rich than right." He's also an incredibly friendly guy who talks to more people in an hour than I probably do in a day(with effort on my part).

    Interesting observation.

    He who talks the most makes the most money. I am assuming there are a few people out there that let their keyboard do the work also and then follow up with a call.

    You gotta remember Elwood talked to Harvey also!
    One of my all time favorite movies, thanks for the reminder.
    Just don't get caught talking to yourself...
