2-Part Toolkit for Leadership

▶ NOTABLE (and quotable) Daniel Truett Cathy, is an American businessman, the chairman, president and CEO of fast-food chain Chick-fil-A. The chain was founded by his father, the late S. Truett Cathy. Cathy was born in Jonesboro, Georgia. He began doing radio commercials for his father's original Dwarf House restaurant in Hapeville, Georgia in the early 1960s. He earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration from Georgia Southern University in 1975, then began working for his father's company.
According to this SOURCEChick-fil-A is a privately owned and family-operated fast-serve restaurant specializing in chicken-based dishes. With a goal to “Be America’s Best Quick-Service Restaurant,” Chick-fil-A has steadily grown its brand, expanding from the American South, its base, to a nationwide chain with more than 1,500 locations in 39 states and annual sales of $3.9 billion. Chick-fil-A restaurants offer a large menu, something for everyone in the family, such as classic chicken sandwiches, salads and wraps, sides, desserts and breakfast selections. With its emphasis on family, and its early reputation for outspoken Christian values, Chick-fil-A has attracted broad American appeal.
The #ALTACITIES archived VIDEO clip (above), an important '#SocialCurrentSee' lecture courtesy of YouTube, was stumbled upon while researching the topic of leadership.  The CEO of Chick-Fil-A is a notable for such insight on this topic, perhaps having a perspective that is similar to many others, but different than most.  As the research continued in social media sites like Twitter, we caught a bit of dissonance and discontent from some, but Cathy, as we know. is no stranger to naysayers.

The Date

Posted in triplicate (a Trilogy) around these #ALTACITIES is the following #SocialCurrentSee archive that is a fitting precursor to archived content on our FLIPBOARD magazines and the allied post on our NEXTDOOR Trilogy message board:

Basically, there are two reasons why I identify with the story in the video clip below.   
1) We live in a the TGI 55+ common interest development (aka HOA) in Southern California. Here, among the 1317 homes, are many residents who are living out their senior years without the presence of a spouse they had loved for decades. 
2) A growing number of my professional colleagues, family members, and friends have suffered this kind of separation in life. Of course, Dee Dee and I are most thankful we are still together as a couple (now nearly 45 years) and have survived many challenges to our longevity both in life and in matrimony. Notable in this regard has been our ten-year survivorship with a cancer episode that began for me in 2006.

Yet the story in 'the choice' reminds us that even in the midst of our worst sorrows, our sovereign and loving God can be trusted. Read: Psalm 34:15-22
