7 Things I Learned from Hello Dolly ...


With all the things I learned from Hello Dolly, I am not at all surprised that it is one of the most popular movies ever created.

This film gem has Gene Kelly directing, Barbara Streisand singing, and Walter Matthau being old.

Then, you have the costumes, the dancing, and the enigmatic Dolly.

It's a film masterpiece, and here are just a few things I learned from Hello Dolly.

1. Do What You Love

"With me, business is always a pleasure." Dolly sure does know how to love what she does, and she is happier because of it.

Hello Dolly shows me how important it is to love what you do.

We better love our profession since it is what we spend most our lives doing!

This is the most important of the things I learned from Hello Dolly.

2. Give

"Money, pardon the expression, is like manure.2

It's not worth a thing unless it's spread around, encouraging young things to grow." This is one of my favorite quotes from Hello Dolly.

It is so funny and so true;

one of the best parts of getting is being able to give back.

3. Be Nice

There is not one person Dolly Levi is ever rude to.2

Sometimes, it is easier to be short with a person than it is to be nice.

Those are the times that I think of Dolly Levi and her enigmatic personality.

She knows how to make people smile and that's a whole lot better than knowing how to make people sad.

4. Work Smart

"If you have to live hand to mouth, you better be ambidextrous." Dolly Levi is one of the the hardest workers of any female character from the 1960s.

But, better than working hard, she knows how to work smart.

Working with brains is always better than working our brains out.
