~~~~~~~ THOUGHTS:

Don't say you don't have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Mother Teresa, Thomas Jefferson and Albert Einstein.

A very interesting story is that of an man who wished to visit a friend living in a far away country.

The man was very poor - too poor in fact to be able to afford any form of transport for even part of the way.

He decided to make the journey on foot. It took him many weeks to traverse the deserts, climb the mountains, and ford the rivers.

Eventually, footsore and weary, he arrived at the home of his friend who greeted him with enthusiasm and amazement.

"How did you manage to make such a long journey?" the friend asked.

The man's answer was simple.

"I started," he said.

Do you have something to do that seems impossible?

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:

In promulgating your esoteric cogitations or articulating your superficial sentimentalities, and amicable philosophical or psychological observations, beware of platitudinous ponderosity.

Let your conversational communications possess a compacted conciseness, a clarified comprehensibility, a coalescent cogency, and a concatenated consistency.

Eschew obfuscation and all conglomeration of flatulent garrulity, jejune babblement, and asinine affectations.

Let your extemporaneous descantings and unpremeditated expatiations have intelligibility and voracious vivacity without rodomontade or thrasonical bombast.

Sedulously avoid all polysyllabic profundity, pompous prolificacy, and vain vapid verbosity.

In short: "Be brief and don't use big words."

"A young man was promoted to fill the position of a senior officer with a brilliant record who had just retired from the company. The young man asked his predecessor for the secret to his success.

The old man answered, ' Two words: right decisions.'

The young man then asked, 'But how do you make right decisions?'

Again the older man answered, this time even more tersely than before, 'Experience.'

'And how do you get this experience?' The young man asked once more.

'Two words---' answered the older man, 'wrong decisions.' "
