Rick Sapio – Dance At Weddings As If No One Is Watching

October 2nd, 2010 by Rich Christiansen

I love the serendipitous events of life that pop nuggets of gold into our lives.  This past week I received a gem.  Let me share this gold with you.

This past week I received a handwritten note from Richard A Sapio who is the Managing Director of Mutual Capital Alliance.   Rick is involved with the Gathering of the Titans event as well as How To Think Like a Billionaire.

Rick and I sit on an advisory board together.  At our last meeting I was really impressed with Richards perspectives and seasoned wisdom regarding  Value Systems and Value GateKeepers in organizations.   We engaged in a meaningful dialog and I really connected with him.Rick Sapio

With the note that Rick  sent me he included a  small sheet of paper  with his “Simple Rules For a More Engaged Live.”  I would like to share Rick’s amazing rules as he shared them with me.   Enjoy!
