Take Care of the Small Stuff!

Friday, August 27, 2010

Don't be afraid to give your best at what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves.

- Dale Carnegie

  


Rejoice and Be Glad!

Thursday, August 26, 2010

Today, I am drawing a blank. Motivational ditties are not popping into my mind and my e-mail box was devoid of inspirational material. However, I can turn to the Pslams and realize that this is a day the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it! Nothing more needs be said.

    Yes, let us "rejoice and be glad in it". Needed to open your blog this a.m. and hear this as I am sad.

Experience experience!

Tuesday, August 24, 2010

Experience is not what happens to a man. It is what a man does with what happens to him.

    "We should be careful to get out of an experience only the wisdom that is in it - and stop there; lest we be like the cat that sits down on a hot stove-lid. She will never sit down on a hot stove-lid again - and that is well; but also she will never sit down on a cold one anymore."

Mark Twain, Pudd'nhead Wilson's New Calendar, Following the Equator, 1897
