"Most people don't plan to fail; they fail to plan.". - John L. Beckley

I'm not sure if this is the guy because our "born on" dates don't match, but his bio seemed like he might fit the bill.
The Economics Press Inc. was founded in 1954 by John L. Beckley (1913-1998). He started by writing booklets and pamphlets that helped people do their jobs better and get along with coworkers. Companies large and small bought these booklets to hand out to their employees or place in reading racks in employee lounge areas.
"Mr. B," as he was affectionately known, was more than a successful businessperson; he was also a visionary. He saw the long-term benefits of having his employees own a share of the business. Although he had many opportunities to sell his company, he chose, instead, to give it to his employees. Today, the employee-owners of The Economics Press share directly in the fruits of their labor.
Mr. B left a legacy...a legacy that is reflected in the values to which we are so strongly committed: integrity, reliability, quality, knowledge, innovation, and inspiration. http://www.epinc.com/corpinfo/aboutus.htm

Thanks Zendam and Jon.

This reminds me of the idea that it's easy to get ahead of God.

Key=Leave a little to God. I must do my share and know God will do God's part. Action and Faith. Work and Wait. Passion and Patience.

Happy Holidays to All

Michael
