Recognizing this book by Eric Chester is titled "Reviving Work Ethic" but, it reads like, old landmarks that I grew up with.
I stood up and cheered when I read the illustration of the, Sand Box. Those were principles (101) that I was thought as a child, I've never forgotten them. Principles, values, honor, respect, I can go on. I'm a parent,... I'm proud to say. I will not allow my children to forget the rich heritage that made me the parent that Iam today.
I make no apologies for teaching my children work ethic,in addition to work ethic respecting authority. When Eric spoke about "parents perpetuating the myth that individualism trumps responsibility" It made me feel proud as a parent that I can only take responsibility for the world that I create, that world first starts in my home with my children!
Bravo Eric Chester! Thank you for, Reviving Work Ethic and Reviving Landmarks.
Luckily, I grew up or was raised knowing that without work ethics success will not be possible. I love the way Mr. Chester described different, real-life, examples of the many problems that employers are currently facing with the younger workforce. However, he also gave many ways to fix the problems and address the "lack of work ethics" epidemic.
I would recommend this book not only to young people, but also to parents, leaders, pastors, employers etc. This book will help anyone who reads it and it will enrich your life with a wealth of useful information.
Let me just say that this has been one of THE most refreshing books to read! Thank you, Eric Chester for your vision and your hard work! We are so grateful for the skills you teach and advice you give in "Reviving Work Ethic." It should be a MUST read for every company, church, small business, parent, everyone! Very pleased with the whole process. And Amazon.com sent me a signed copy, which was very special.
