It’s amazing how much we can learn from simple things all around us. Of course I’m talking about tea.
Consider this saying: “The way you pour a cup of tea is the way you do everything.”
Isn’t that profound?
A person who is responsible in some areas of life will be equally responsible in other areas. If someone cheats on the golf scorecard, however, there’s a good chance that he or she shouldn’t be given the club money box.
This proverb is so deep in its minimalism that not much needs to be said to elaborate on it. To be a person of integrity means to bring an uncompromising approach to every task in our courts, from big to small. Even pouring a cup of tea.
