August 26, 2016
It's Friday, so for fun today I've got four unattributable sayings, another from a Chinese philosopher ... and one from a friend:
1. Some old and new ways of looking at the proverbial half-filled glass:
The optimist says the glass is half full.
The pessimist says the glass is half empty.
The project manager/engineer says the glass is twice as big as it needs to be.
The realist says the glass contains half the required amount of liquid for it to overflow.
And the cynic .... wonders who drank the other half.
2. When you think your older associate could not be more wrong:
Wisdom does not always come with age -- sometimes age comes alone
3. On being resilient:
Life is not about how fast you run, or how high you climb, but how well you bounce.
4. These words of wisdom about clearing your mind are attributed to Lao Tsu, a Chinese philosopher who lived sometime between 600 and 400 BC:
When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be
5. In this one, think of the "circus" as the broadcasting business:
If you can't ride two horses at the same time, you shouldn't be in the circus
6. And finally from a friend who said this after he left his GM position at a radio station:
I won't miss the circus, but I surely will miss the clowns.
