“Coming Together Is A Beginning; Keep Together Is Progress; Working Together Is Success.” – Henry Ford

“Coming together is a beginning; keep together is progress; working together is success.”

– Henry Ford

When I read that, my heart sighs in relief. That’s just a description of healthy management or a positive marriage. And what a joy it is when we have it! A team that works together with ease, with joy.  This certainly isn’t just about manufacturing or cars!

We all know that synergy…. it’s that feeling that people are communicating seamlessly. You might know what each other is going to say. Perhaps you instinctively know best how to split activities and responsibilities, respecting the unique talents of each.

Most importantly, you share. You share thoughts, ideas, insights, work and wisdom.

May we come together in peace. Keep together by excellence in communication, building a sure foundation. And work together towards success, where both parties feels supported, triumphant, and….loved. Marriage, Management, Meeting, No Matter What — that’s the feeling we strive for.

Successful Communication and Execution Through Love.

Henry Ford (July 30, 1863 – April 7, 1947) was an American industrialist, the founder of the Ford Motor Company, and sponsor of the development of the assembly line technique of mass production.  Ford married Clara Ala Bryant (1866–1950) in 1888 and supported himself by farming and running a sawmill. Ford did not invent the automobile, but he developed and manufactured the Model T, the first automobile that many middle class Americans could afford to buy and revolutionized transportation and American industry. As owner of the Ford Motor Company, he became one of the richest and best-known people in the world. He is credited with “Fordism”: mass production of inexpensive goods coupled with high wages for workers. Ford had a global vision and his intense commitment to systematically lowering costs resulted in many technical and business innovations. (Bio source: Wikipedia: Henry Ford)

“Love Is a Partnership Of Two Unique People Who Bring Out the Very Best In Each Other” – Barbara Cage

“Love is a partnership of two unique people who bring out the very best in each other, and who know that even though they are wonderful as individuals, they are even better together.”

– Barbara Cage

It doesn’t matter whether it is marriage or not.  Bring out the best in people.  Our standards for marriage should be the highest we have, in how we treat people.  Why not apply a “Marriage Standard,”  to all our relationships?  Life is so exciting if we are in high pursuit of a lofty goal in how we treat others.

Can You Whizz By in the Developing World?

The body purges the mind…. To walk in the world’s poorer countries is to enter the orbit of their inhabitants.  An attachment to the earth – to the vital soil or rock underfoot…..

We race around in planes, cars and turbo jets. If it’s not that, it’s a motorcycle, a segway, or a skateboard. We’re mobile, and not just on our phones.

Don’t forget to walk. With walking, our minds are healed. Somehow the rhythm of walking; the fresh air; the connection of touching the ground brings our mind to simplicity.  It allows us to really see nature– and not just whizz by it.  It also allows us to truly recognize and connect with those who live there.

In developing nations, that is the norm. Often, homes don’t have doorways, or if they do, they are continually open.

People know each other, in an intimate yet casual way. Neighbors don’t move often, and day to day life often involves helping others.   You know when your neighbors arise, to the smile lines on their faces, and how long you hear the gentle, comforting murmur of their voices before they drift asleep. It’s truly about living together.

So don’t whizz by.

Take a moment to know yourself, know your neighbors, and the nature that exists around you. Even if you are in a city, you can take the time to get to know the people  “behind Unit 303,” or recognize a beautiful rose plant adoring the side of a cement street.
