Thought for the Day





Leadership:


The path of least resistance leads to the land of nothing done
- Bill Purdin



Leadership:
It is better to lead from behind and to put others in front,
especially when you celebrate victory when nice things occur.
You take the front line when there is danger.
Then people will appreciate your leadership.
- Nelson Mandela


Kindness:
Be kind whenever possible.
It is always possible.
- Dalai Lama


Goals:
If you have goals and procrastination you have nothing.
If you have goals and you take action,
you will have anything you want
-Thomas J. Vilord


The New Year:
Be at war with your vices;
at peace with your neighbors,
and let every new year find you a better man.
- Benjamin Franklin

New Year's Resolution:
To tolerate fools more gladly,
provided this does not encourage them to take up more of my time.
- James Agate

A New Year's resolution is something that goes in one year and out the other
- Author Unknown

Ready to celebrate the transition from 2012 to 2013?

An optimist stays up until midnight to see the new year in.
A pessimist stays up to make sure the old year leaves
-Bill Vaughan

Generosity:
The value of a man resides in what he gives and not in what he is capable of receiving
- Albert Einstein

Generosity:
Thousands of candles can be lit from a single candle,
and the life of the candle will not be shortened.
Happiness never decreases by being shared.
- Buddha

Generosity:
We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give
- Winston Churchill

Generosity:
There is no exercise better for the heart than reaching down and lifting people up.
- John Holmes

Generosity:
What is called generosity is usually only the vanity of giving; we enjoy the vanity more than the thing given.
- Francois de La Rochefoucauld

Generosity:
To practice five things under all circumstances constitutes perfect virtue;
these five are
gravity, generosity of soul, sincerity, earnestness, and kindness.
- Confucius


Imagination:
Think left and think right and think low and think high.
Oh, the thinks you can think up if only you try!
-Dr. Seuss

Habits:
Good habits, once established are just as hard to break as are bad habits
-Robert Puller

Habit and routine have an unbelievable power to waste and destroy
-Henri de Lubac


Change - If you have always done it that way, it's probably wrong. -Charles Kettering


On social sites - as in real life - Play the ball, not the man


Don't be part of the problem, be part of the solution



I will add a new one every day - unless you do first...

MIke, Apart from this blog which is great, how are you part of the solution and the solution to what? The context that speaks to me is that of Robert T. Kiyosaki. He discovered that we are getting poorer and that it is due to demographic developments and that government can't solve our problems, so we should do it ourselves and take the responsibility for our future into our own hands. What I do is supporting people to create new income opportunities for themselves. Robert Oosthout.

Thought for the day....

"Though I might travel afar, I will meet only what I carry with me, for every man is a mirror. We see only ourselves reflected in those around us. Their attitudes and actions are only a reflection of our own. The whole world and its condition has its counter parts within us all. Turn the gaze inward. Correct yourself and your world will change." Kirsten Zambucka

Whatever you are from nature, keep to it; never desert your own line of talent. Be what nature intended you for, and you will succeed; be anything else, and you will be ten thousands times worse than nothing. Sydney Smith

Sudden failures are generally due to one definite thing. Gradual failures may be due to a combination of circumstances. In the case of failure in operation no adjustment should be made, nor any part tampered with, until the cause of the trouble has been located. Otherwise adjustments which are correct may be deranged. 1939 Sunbeam Instruction Manual

Planning is an unnatural process. It is much more fun to do something else. The nicest thing about not planning is that failure comes as a complete surprise rather than preceded by a period of worry and depression. Failure to plan is planning to fail. Sir John Harvey Jones (11)

@Mike Thought for the day....

For sure it is best to be the early bird or the second mouse, albeit he is slightly behind, as worms eventually get eaten or destroyed when dug over and found out and as for the cheese person, well he just sits there waiting for things to happen. The best person to be has to have Inspiration, Application, Constancy, Consistency, Perseverance and a lot of Perspiration to see anything through. Philosophically speaking and in Application that is how I would see it. Cheers Alan

Think before you speak, or type / email/ text /fax/ tweet etc... Don't press SEND until you are certain it's to the right person ...and even then, beware... The right person is quite likely to forward it on the the wrong person. ... or print it out and leaving it lying around for everyone to read.
