The Schultz Philosophy #1

The following is the philosophy of Charles Schultz, the creator of the 'Peanuts' comic strip. You don't have to actually answer the questions. Just read the e-mail straight through, and you'll get the point. 

  1. Name the five wealthiest people in the world. 
  2. Name the last five Heisman trophy winners. 
  3. Name the last five winners of the Miss America. 
  4. Name ten people who have won the Nobel or Pulitzer Prize. 
  5. Name the last half dozen Academy Award winner for best actor and actress. 
  6. Name the last decade's worth of World Series winners. 


How did you do? 

The point is, none of us remember the headliners of yesterday. These are no second-rate achievers. They are the best in their fields. But the applause dies. Awards tarnish. Achievements are forgotten. Accolades and certificates are buried with their owners .
