Less Is More…More or Less.

Let your yes be yes and your no, no. My attempt to say more while not.

I couldn’t agree more….while simultaneously admitting I need to work on this more!!!!

Give me 5 minutes a day and I'll give you a happier, more successful life

Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off your goal.  ~Henry Ford
Shoot for the moon.  Even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars.  ~Les Brown
Some of the world’s greatest feats were accomplished by people not smart enough to know they were impossible.  ~Doug Larson

I once read that the 4% who graduated from Yale University with definite goals were investigated 20 years later. They had accomplished more than the 96% who didn’t have goals.

Brian Tracy, the inspirational writer who started as a dishwasher and became a multimillionaire said that after twenty years of coaching and observing people, he feels success is all about goals.

You have probably heard about SMART goals:
S specific: A goal must be written down in the positive form such as “I will weigh 230 pounds by May December 20, 2012 in a specific manner. The subconscious…

Movie Quote Reversal ::: Office Space v. Heartbreak Ridge

So my co-worker and I had an interesting conversation tonight. We both love quoting the movie, Office Space and we both enjoy Clint Eastwood flicks.  Which brought about an entertaining game.  Interchanging movie quotes.  The ones we came up with had us laughing pretty good, though this list is a little more extensive and I’m sure I’m missing a few.

Can you tell what the original quote was and which movie it belongs to??

You’re back with Initech?

Stitch Jones is my name and Rock ‘n Roll is my game and I never leave home without my 15 pieces of flair

Gunnery Sargent Highway…is that your real name?

Marines are fighting men. They shouldn’t be sitting around on their sorry …  filling out TPS reports for equipment they should already have, sir.

The only thing you could build, Webster, is a good case of “the Mondays”.

Just because we both like Kung Fu doesn’t mean we’ll be taking warm showers together until the wee hours of the morning.

Well, when a boss wants you to stay in contact and not take the hill without him he generally asks you at the end of the day, right?

I don’t want to get my head shot off in some far away land because you didn’t get the memo, comprende?

Good evening Sir, my name is Steve. I come over from supply.

You’ll all wear Hawaiian shirts on Friday or not at all.

Milt,  Sir. This is Gunnery Sergent Thomas Highway. He’s been assigned to find your stapler.

Your TPS- DD 1348 forms are not filled out correctly.

Fill out the proper TPS forms and send it through the chain of command! (ie.  the 8 bosses you report to)

We’re going to approach this exercise in an orderly proficient manner, Sergeant Major. I want each piece of flair counted and returned in the exact condition in which it was received.

About the only quote that fits in both movies is that “I was told I could listen to my music at a reasonable volume.”

I’m looking forward to your thoughts and comments!!!

Value Your Work…A Lesson From The Wedding Singer

While Adam Sandler’s character, Robbie Hart, and Drew Barrymore, as Julia Sullivan are on a double date, Robbie learns about the profession of Julia’s fiancee…who in a few moments, admits to cheating on her. Thanks Glenn, for the one-liner piece of career advice:

Glenn: You should look into the bond market. That’s where the money is.

Julia: Glenn’s in junk bonds.

Glenn: No, Jules, it’s high-yield bonds. Do I tell people you’re in junk waitressing?

I don’t know why this struck me tonight, but whatever it is you do, it is (or should be) worthwhile, and not just for monetary purposes.

The only people who have truly (______) jobs are those who work in the waste management/environmental services industry.

And from what I hear, they make pretty decent money for putting up with other peoples (_____) in a professional manner.

Whatever you do, do your best. Until that for which you are better-suited, makes its’ appearance.

Worth & Waiting

Time breeds maturity.

Rarity breeds appreciation.

Thus, if it’s worth having, it’s worth waiting.

Perfection nor success can be rushed.

Neither can God…who happens to be both.
