The Way I See It
 

Ancient folklore says that Socrates was visited by an acquaintance who was eager to share some juicy gossip about another friend. Before the man was able to share his news, Socrates asked if the news could pass the “Triple Filter Test.”

Socrates then explained, “The first filter is truth. Have you made sure what you’re about to say is true?” The man shook his head and said, “No, I just heard about it and…”

Socrates cut him off, and said, “If you don’t know that the news is true, then is it good or kind?” Again the man shook his head and said, “No, actually it’s the opposite. You see…”

Socrates cut him off again and said, “So you aren’t sure if it’s true, and it isn’t good or kind. One filter remains – is this information useful or necessary to me?” The man was a little defeated and said, “No, not really.” And Socrates said, “Well, if what you want to say is neither true, nor good or kind, nor useful or necessary, please don’t say anything at all.”

Here’s the way I see it: Imagine how different the world would be if we only chose to share or listen to information that was true, good, or useful. Mahatma Gandhi said it best, “Be the change you want to see in the world.”

P.S. We (Brian, Margaret and 2 youngest sons) are currently cruising down the Tenn-Tom Waterway in Mississippi. The ground is bare, expected temp today is low 60, and the stress-free life is grand! Well, if you exclude all the very large logs in the water today. Follow us down the river.

Custom Dividers
AN EASY AND FUN ORGANIZE YOUR IMPORTANT DOCUMENTS

Whether you prefer three-ring binders, boxes, or folders, index tab dividers and cut sheets offer an easy and fun way to organize your important documents.

While many people are familiar with index tab dividers, cut sheets are a similar variation without the tab extension. Cut sheets make it easy to navigate through your documents and are used just like tab dividers to separate the different sections of your content.

Tab dividers and cut sheets are a great way to introduce and provide an overview for each section of content. They are a popular addition for product catalogs, instruction manuals, employee handbooks, and medical guides.

Tab dividers and cut sheets can be printed on both sides, and have many customization options, such as three-hold drilling, lamination and custom finishes, metallic ink, embossing, and much more. They are a professional way to boost the organization of your documents.

If you’d like to learn more about custom divider options or need a quote, our team is here to help! Remember, other printers may be nearby, but no one comes close.
