Evaporating Fears


Most fears cannot withstand the test of careful scrutiny and analysis. When we expose our fears to the light of thoughtful examination they usually just evaporate.


Jack Canfield




BTW, we are all here...




The Pale Blue Dot



A reminder!


 Remember not only to say the right thing in the right place, but far more difficult still, to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment.


Benjamin Franklin
1706-1790, Scientist, Publisher and Diplomat





It is about Time!


One cannot buy, rent or hire more time. The supply of time is totally inelastic. No matter how

high the demand, the supply will not go up. There is no price for it. Time is totally perishable

and cannot be stored. Yesterday's time is gone forever, and will never come back.  Time is

always in short supply. There is no substitute for time. Everything requires time.  All work

takes place in, and uses up time. Yet most people take for granted this unique, irreplaceable

and necessary resource.

Peter F. Drucker - [Time and Time Management] 




Judge not


If you judge people, you have no time to love them. 

 Mother Teresa of Calcutta quotes 



Making a Decision





When making a decision of minor importance, I have always found it advantageous to consider all the pros and cons. In vital matters, however, such as the choice of a mate or a profession, the decision should come from the unconscious, from somewhere within ourselves. In the important decisions of personal life, we should be governed, I think, by the deep inner needs of our nature.

To Explain Yourself



Never explain yourself to anyone,

because the person who likes you doesn't need it,

and the person who dislikes you wont believe it.

A Priority or an Option


Don't let someone become a priority in your life, when you are just an option in their life...



To Be Busy



To Forgive



He who cannot forgive breaks the bridge over which he himself must pass.

George Herbert, 1593-1632, Poet

communication skills

Research has confirmed time and time again that it is a person's communication skills that gets them to the top - and keeps them there.

Science vs. Art

Science is what we understand well enough to explain to a computer. Art is everything else we do.

- Donald Knuth, In Technology/Computers





Early in life, I had to choose between honest arrogance and hypocritical humility. I chose honest arrogance and have seen no occasion to change.

Frank Lloyd Wright (1868 - 1959)
