If I have one operating philosophy about life it is this: “Be cool to the pizza delivery dude; it’s good luck.” Four principles guide the pizza dude philosophy.

 

Principle 1: Coolness to the pizza delivery dude is a practice in humility and forgiveness. I let him cut me off in traffic, let him safely hit the exit ramp from the left lane, let him forget to use his blinker without extending any of my digits out the window or towards my horn because there should be one moment in my harried life when a car may encroach or cut off or pass and I let it go. Sometimes when I have become so certain of my ownership of my lane, daring anyone to challenge me, the pizza dude speeds by me in his rusted Chevette. His pizza light atop his car glowing like a beacon reminds me to check myself as I flow through the world. After all, the dude is delivering pizza to young and old, families and singletons, gays and straights, blacks, whites and browns, rich and poor, vegetarians and meat lovers alike. As he journeys, I give safe passage, practice restraint, show courtesy, and contain my anger.

 

Principle 2: Coolness to the pizza delivery dude is a practice in empathy. Let’s face it: We’ve all taken jobs just to have a job because some money is better than none. I’ve held an assortment of these jobs and was grateful for the paycheck that meant I didn’t have to share my Cheerios with my cats. In the big pizza wheel of life, sometimes you’re the hot bubbly cheese and sometimes you’re the burnt crust. It’s good to remember the fickle spinning of that wheel.

 

Principle 3: Coolness to the pizza delivery dude is a practice in honor and it reminds me to honor honest work. Let me tell you something about these dudes: They never took over a company and, as CEO, artificially inflated the value of the stock and cashed out their own shares, bringing the company to the brink of bankruptcy, resulting in 20,000 people losing their jobs while the CEO builds a home the size of a luxury hotel. Rather, the dudes sleep the sleep of the just.

 

Principle 4: Coolness to the pizza delivery dude is a practice in equality. My measurement as a human being, my worth, is the pride I take in performing my job — any job — and the respect with which I treat others. I am the equal of the world not because of the car I drive, the size of the TV I own, the weight I can bench press, or the calculus equations I can solve. I am the equal to all I meet because of the kindness in my heart. And it all starts here — with the pizza delivery dude.

 

Tip him well, friends and brethren, for that which you bestow freely and willingly will bring you all the happy luck that a grateful universe knows how to return.

[Homework]2016-01-08&01-14 送披萨引发的人生哲学

Today's episode of this I believe was made possible by a generous donation from two * in loving memory of her husband Mark.And this brings me to what I believe. I believe in life is a spiritual struggle. I believe in being gracious to others. I believe in the power of science fiction. I believe in seeming badly. I believe that God lives in the space between people. I believe in so much more than freedom speech and I believe it's time we all take a stand. This I believe. Welcome to this I believe, I'm Don G. Well this is the last podcast of the year. If we count down to 2016 one of the end year with something special.The very most popular this I believe we've ever broadcast. Before we play that essay, I want to give you a little background. Back in early 2005 before we aired our first this I believe episode on NPR, we convinced a small group of public radio station to air some 1950s this I believe essays from their region. It's a way to inspire their listeners to send in their own essays. Our plan from the beginning was to combine essays from famous Americans with those from our listeners. One of the stations we worked with was KUNW in Seattle.Seattle is a big public radio town and we found a great response from their listeners. One of * instructor the local community college, Sarah Adams. We ended up choosing her essay to the very first listen essay that we aired on May 16th, 2005. Over the intervening decades it has become by a long shot the most popular this I believe essay of all time on our website.And by an alphabetical accident, it's the very first essay in our very first and most popular book, this I believe.So to close out 2015 we bring you this essay from Sarah Adams.

If I have one operating philosophy about life, it is this. Be cool to the Pizza delivery Dude, it's good luck. Four principals guide the Pizza Dude philosophy. Principal one, coolness to the Pizza delivery Dude is a practice in humility and forgiveness.I let him come me off in traffic.Let him safely hit the exit * from the left lane,let him use his blinker without extending any of my digits out the window or towards my horn because there are one moment in my hurried life when a car may encroach or cut off or pass and I let it go. Sometimes when I become so certain of my ownership of my way, dare anyone to challenge me. A pizza dude speed by *. His pizza light * car glowing like a beacon reminds me to check myself as I for the world. After all the dude is delivering pizza to young and old, families and single, gays and straights, blacks, whites and brown, rich and poor, vegetarians and meat lovers alike. At his journeys I give safe passage, practice restrain, show courtasy and contain my anger.

Principal two, coolness to a pizza delivery dude is a practice of empathy. Let's face it, we've all taken jobs just to have a job because some money is better than none. I've held assortment of these jobs and was grateful for the * that I didn't have to share my * with my cats. In the big pizza way of life, sometimes you are the * cheese and sometimes you are the burnt crust. It's good to remember of the fickle spinning of the wheel.

Principal three, coolness to the pizza delivery dude is a practice in honor. It reminds me to honor honest work. Let me tell you something about these dudes. They never took over a company and as CEO, artificially inflate the value of stock and catched up their own shares, bring the company to the brink of *.Resulting of 20,000 people losing their jobs while the CEO builds a home the size of a luxury hotel.Rather the dude sleep the of the just.




Principal four,coolness to the pizza delivery dude is a practice in equality. My measurement as a human being, my worth is the pride I take in performing my job, any job and the respect with which I treat others.I'm an equal of the world not because of the car I drive, the size of the TV I own,the way I can bench price or the calculus equations I can solve. I'm the equal to all I meet because the kindness in my heart. And it all starts here, with the pizza delivery dude. Tip well for which you bestow freely and willingly, will bring you all the happy luck that a grateful universe knows how to return.
