I'm all about production. I think I can trace this to many people who I've passed along the way. 'Produce or get of the pot' was an expression I first heard my French-Canadian born grandmother use. At first, I was confused. What did she mean? I realized at about 6, that it was her way of telling me to finish whatever I was doing. She explained in detail what the word 'produce' meant and what a 'pot' was. I laughed hysterically when she explained that one of the many meanings of 'pot' was a toilet. Get it done! Finish the job. Online this morning, the obituary of my eighth grade English teacher, Ms. Myrtle Storer, another woman who helped convince me that producing a solid, quality product was the way to go if you were going to put your name on anything in this world. Produce... wonderful word!
