Kudos Jaqui! Now on communication ...

by puterfx In reply to words of wisdom

Just a couple of my favorites ...

When dealing with upper management...

"I know you think you understand what you thought I said, but I?m not sure that you understand that what I said is not what I meant."

When under the gun and doing your best, remember...
"All you can do is all you can do,
and all you can do is enough"
from A.L. Williams

This Works in every occasion

by thelurch In reply to words of wisdom

My Dad was in the Armed Forces so we did a lot of traveling overseas. It was customary for Dad to take the family in the car on a weekend and just travel to see the sights of the region.

One time, Mom thought Dad might have taken a wrong turn a ways back and tried to explain that we were lost.

Dad's reply (and also what I colsider the "Kida Credo of Life")

"You're Never Lost Until You've Run Out of Gas."

Now, everywhere I travel I make sure I have a full tank, mentally and physically.

creativity quotes

by trillian_sk In reply to words of wisdom

great thread. here are some from my collection on creativity
1. You have to allow room for serendipity and the unexpected. (Thomas Zimmerman, IBM, on the creative process of invention)
2. Imagination is intelligence having fun.
3. Life is a continuous exercise in creative problem solving
4. When in doubt, make a fool of yourself. There is a microscopically thin line between being brilliantly creative and acting like the most gigantic idiot on earth. So what the ****, leap. (Cynthia Heimel)
5. I have spent my day stringing and unstringing my instrument, while the song I came to sing remains unsung

When in panic
Or in doubt
Run in cicles
Scream and shout

That always works for me.

That's supposed to be "danger", not "panic". Much more euphonous that way, too.
