Micro Monday: "Easy As One-Two-Three"

Easy As One-Two-Three

"Accept nothing less than complete success," my father intoned, lapsing once again into the management by adage that won him so many admirers over the years, both in the firm and in town.

"Build it and they will come," he continued, trying another, one which was admittedly not his own. The sentimentality of that one, and the film where he first heard it, had long been favorites of his.

"Could it really be possible?" I asked, to no response. To him the question was small-minded, irrelevant. Of course it was possible, would be built, would be a complete success.
