There are six people I’m inspired by (outside of family): Eric Carl, the artist. Ted Geisel, the poet. Walt Disney, the dreamer. Ginger Rogers, the beauty. Ebby Halliday, the visionary. And Anna Wintour the decision maker. I think if you blend the personalities of these six people into one person you would get exactly what I strive to be.
Anna Wintour is the most misunderstood person on my short list. She’s on my short list because:
She makes decisions.
Even the tough ones.
Because of her influence the next time someone asks me what I want for dinner or whether or not I like the tulips or the orchids I won’t shrug and say “I donno, what do you think?” I’ll make a decision. If I make a habit of decisiveness I can have a powerful influence on the world around me. That is what I learned from Anna Wintour and why I admire her so much.
