“…The “deal maker” is more important than the deal….remember that….”

20131122_171742Have you ever considered that INTERRUPTION(S) are opportunities in disguise?  I have carried a cell phone, or their predecessors since 1973, and I always answer my calls, except when in Church, or a very IMPORTANT meeting (the other exception is, of course…caller ID); otherwise….I answer it.  So, if I answer my cell phone while sitting in front of you; you can consider that whoever is on the phone is more important than the subject before us.  Ok…I’m just trying to make a point.  I can’t tell you how many times that by being immediately available, has clinched a deal.  I RELY ON MY CELL PHONE!!  If I’m not available, then the next guy might well be, and he’s going to get the deal…not me.  The best deal is not always the “best deal.”  The “deal maker” is more important than the deal….remember that.  Without the deal maker, there is no deal.  I want to be interrupted.  I am reputed amongst my friends, my family, and business associates as “always being available.”  I don’t EVER want to pass up an opportunity…interruptions, or not.  Thank about this: Jesus was “interrupted” all the time, with the blind man, or the deaf man, wanting to be cured.  Or the centurion who wanted Jesus to save his son from dying.  Then there was the first miracle, where the Blessed Virgin Mary interrupted Jesus, asking Him to make arrangements for more wine.  Jesus has given us His example to follow.  Jesus’s life on earth was “interrupted” so that we might have LIFE-EVERLASTING. …Blessings…cjlb…3/26/14
