"Don't Be A Prick."

"Don't Be A Prick."

That guides you through 95% of all ethically questionable situations. Of course, this depends on how you define "prick".

Then too, there's that pesky other 5%.

Good Luck - but Don't Be Another Prick!

Managers and Delusion

"Managers who don't have a plan to regularly talk to everyone on their team are deluded. They believe they are going to learn what is going on in their group through some magical organizational osmosis and they won't. Ideas will not be discovered, talent will be ignored, and the team will slowly begin to believe what they think does not matter, and the team is the company." "

"A motion..."

"A motion to adjourn is always in order."

"Your enemy is never...."

"Your enemy is never a villain in his own mind. Keep this in mind; it may offer a way to make him your friend. If not, you can kill him without hate - and quickly."

"If you don't like yourself"

"If you don't like yourself, you can't like other people."

" It's amazing..." (mature wisdom)

"It's amazing how much mature wisdom resembles being 'too tired'."

I'm already dead

A friend at work asks rhetorically, in passing, "How's it going?"

"Waiting to die", I answer.

She freezes, then quickly motions me to a more private place to speak. "What the hell do you mean by That!"

"Just hanging, drifting, not interested in anything, almost no responsibilities except myself, middle aged, no goals or plans. Burned out on trying to date at 47, all these wierdos in Manhattan and even Long Beach, yet it's so hard to leave. How the hell can you be this bored in NYC?"

She pulls my ear close to her lips as she whispers, "You're already dead..."
