What Are You Known For?

This Thanksgiving, as we reflect on all the things we’re grateful for, let’s also take a minute to think about the one thing we’re known for. It’s the principle of it shines.

Driving by the Flying Saucer Pie Company in Houston, TX, I saw “The One Thing” principle in action. Here is a small, unassuming shop that sells only one thing: pies. And, judging from the line on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, they do that pretty darn well. Driving by this line of people waiting to buy pies, I thought to myself, “Next time I need a good pie, I’m going to try the Flying Saucer Pie Company.”
