A buddy’s daughter
resisted completing her school work
every evening.
She preferred to watch TV instead.

My buddy was frustrated.
She asked me for suggestions.
I asked her what SHE did
when she came home
from work every evening.

My buddy watched TV.

Now, my buddy sits
at the dinner table
and works.
The daughter sits beside her
and completes her school work.
She doesn’t argue.
She does.
Just like her mom.

We can talk the good talk
all we want
but our employees, our partners, our kids
watch what we do.
They do what they do.

We can’t expect them to work hard
if we’re goofing around.
