“…The Board came to a 6 to 1 conclusion…that they were paying me too much.  So… the moral of this story is…  It cost me some “big-bucks” …to make a point….which was….To THINK…”

QUITE-TIME:  About thirteen years ago…I had a consulting job paying $12,500.00 per month.  At some point… I called a meeting of 15 managers… into a windowless conference room… without saying a single word…I turned the lights off….and waited.  And WAITED.  Twenty minutes went by.  If anyone THINKING…they didn’t reveal it? You would have thought that someone could have said…. “Hey… turn the lights on.  Or…what’s going on?”

Later, I tried the same thing (antic) on the Board of Directors.  Thirty seconds into it…some old fellow said…turn the “D… lights” on.   Now… this old fellow …he was actually…THINKING… or scared of the dark.

About thirty days later…The Board came to a 6 to 1 conclusion…that they were paying me too much.  So… the moral of this story is…  It cost me some “big-bucks” …to make a point….which was….To THINK.

Quite-time is a good time for THINKING …and “praying”… and also… Be careful, turning the lights off… could cost you some big bucks.

Matthew 14:22-23 Immediately he made the disciples get into the boat and go before him to the other side, while he dismissed the crowds. And after he had dismissed the crowds, he went up on the mountain by himself to pray. When evening came, he was there alone,

We are counseled in… Isaiah 41:1 – Listen to me in silence, O coastlands; let the peoples renew their strength; let them approach, then let them speak; let us together draw near for judgment. And, again in Isaiah 2:17, it says… And the haughtiness of man shall be humbled, and the lofty pride of men shall be brought low, and the Lord alone will be exalted in that day.
