One Is Never Enough and Three Is Too Many

One is never enough - Have you ever met an athlete who was OK stopping at one championship, a foodie with one-slice of that killer pizza or pie, or a photographer just taking one shot at a wedding?

Three is too much - How many times do you remember to do the first two things on the list your significant other gives you but forget to do the third?

Two is the right number, don’t you think?

Think about it: the two most important books in your life are:

  1. Your date book
  2. Your check book

That should give you some perspective on where you spend your time and where you spend your money. 

The two most important days of your life:

  1. The day you were born
  2. The day you figured out why you were born (what’s your purpose?) 

There are just two things I know for sure:

  1. You can plan for what’s about to happen, or
  2. You can deal with what just happened

Two food things:

  1. Don’t eat ballpark food before the 5th inning
  2. Don’t eat sushi on Sunday.

Don’t make important decisions when:

  1. You’re drunk
  2. Your angry

No matter how flat a pancake is, it always has two sides.

The two most important things in a relationship:

  1. Trust
  2. Communication

You don’t always get what you want, but:

  1. You get what you negotiate.
  2. You get what you commit to.

You can’t have:

  1. Fear and faith at the same time.
  2. A positive and a negative at the same time.

Two most important things in an employment review:

  1. What I want you to do more of.
  2. What I want you to do less of.

When you get out of college you should ask:

  1. What am I going to do?
  2. More importantly, what kind of person am I going to be?

Two is the magic number. That’s why in my daily life, and with my staff, we count by two’s.
