You’re grounded

George H. W. Bush (b. 1924)

No. You’re not in trouble.

While it may be a fairly common punishment for children, it’s got a different meaning for adults.

To be “well grounded” means living a life based on a solid foundation, based on reality, principled.

While neither of the shows referenced below by President Bush are reality shows, one may be a little more true to life than the other.

Is your business on a shaky foundation? Or is your business filled with the right people working in the right roles operating under core values that drive business during good and bad economic times?

Hopefully you’re not driven by $ signs. Otherwise, if you’re just in it for the money, your business may be built like a house made of straw, ready to fall at the first sign of a troubling wind.

“America needs to be a lot more like the Waltons and a lot less like the Simpsons.”
George H. W. Bush, 41st President of the United States (1989-1993)
