The Guanciale Touch

Cultural Offering has a profile of a quiet hero. An excerpt:

This man with the waxed handlebar moustache went out of his way at every opportunity to help a poor dumb kid find his way in the world. I could go on and on but the stories wouldn't have to be about me. I've heard the same stories from other people: How Pat Guanciale went out of his way to help them when he didn't have to. That is the kind of person he is. ..and if you are a client it is the same way. "Out of his way" would be the common description of Guanciale's efforts.

One of my key life lessons was early in my career. I complained to my boss that he didn't appreciate the way I "went out of my way" to take care of things. He wisely commented: "No, Tom, you don't go out of your way to do those things. You make it your way to do them." Profound. I still think on that interaction from so many years ago.

Tom,

Great story. I can see why you still remember that.

Thanks!
