Welcome to Eldon’s Porch. I often sit on my porch and think. I think about how God has blessed me. Or, I think of my wife of 47 years or our children or my seven grandchildren. Or, I think of my 40 years in Corporate America and the “adventures” I experienced there. Or, I just think of what goes on and why it matters. My purpose in sharing the thoughts from my porch is to help the reader navigate this journey of life. And, perhaps, smile from time to time as you see yourself in the experiences of my life.
I have assembled much of the information in this blog into the 4 books I have published to-date:
1. “Achieving your best day yet”
2. “Pragmatic GXP compliance”
3. “Retirement is underrated”
4. “Yes, you can change your circumstances”
You find these books in paperback or Kindle versions from Amazon (go to Amazon.com and search for Eldon Henson). So, pull up a chair and let’s see where this takes us.
About Eldon Henson
Eldon lives Wentzville, Missouri, a western suburb of St. Louis. He is married, has three children, and seven grandchildren. He worked in corporate America for over 40 years and, thus, gained significant insight into people, achievement, career development, and how people succeed. He is also a dedicated Christian and serves God in a number of ways. He seeks to share the things he has learned with others in the hope that readers will achieve a greater balance in life, learn perspective, be successful in their careers, and, ultimately, understand that our purpose is to love God, by loving others.
Eldon also is an optimist. To him, every day could “be our best day yet!” There is always that chance… so, we must look at every day as an opportunity to make a difference for someone else. Someone once said, “A day is not a good day unless you have done something for someone else that could never pay you back.” This, my friend, is the start to a “best day.”
