Sir William Gladstone

 

Sir William Ewart Gladstone

Since about 2005, when I first encountered the simple philosophy quoted below, Gladstone has been an inspiration to me.

I'm 67 now, and my tolerance for aggravation, red tape, petty details and externally imposed requirements, which was never high to begin with, is long gone. Sorry for the salty language, but Gladstone was an old guy, and at some point you've earned the right .......

Sir William Gladstone and WeatherWool PhilosophyWilliam Ewart Gladstone (1809–1898)
"There's so much sh*t to do.
But really, why bother with any of it? You're going to die eventually.
Then you're going to wonder why you bothered with all that sh*t."


This translates to WeatherWool as follows ... We do our best to run "a first-class business in a first-class way", to quote JP Morgan. (I worked 11 years at the original, institutional Morgan Stanley.) The best products and the best customer service we can figure out. If you are not happy, please accept a full refund, and good luck to you.

Gladstone was the 4-time Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, and consistently ranked by historians as one of the greatest.

THANKS to Bob, my Friend of 50 years, for bringing Gladstone and his philosophy to my attention.
