"Do your own market research; ask your last ten customers exactly why they bought from you." - Brian Tracy

~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:
Many folks want to serve God, but only as advisers.
It is easier to preach ten sermons than it is to live one.
When you get to your wit's end, you'll find God lives there.
People are funny, they want the front of the bus, the middle of the road, and the back of the church.
Opportunity may knock once, but temptation bangs on your front door forever.
Don't gripe about your church; if it was perfect, you couldn't be a member.
The phrase that is guaranteed to wake up an audience: "And in conclusion."
If the church wants a better pastor, it only needs to pray for the one it has.
God Himself does not propose to judge a man until he is dead. So why should we?
Peace starts with a smile.
We were called to be witnesses, not lawyers or judges.

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:
The story is told of a colonel who issued the following statement to his executive secretary: "Tomorrow evening at approximately 2000 hours Haley's Comet will be visible in this area, an event that occurs only once every 75 years. Have the men fall out in fatigues, and I will explain this rare phenomenon to them. In case of rain, we will not be able to see anything, so assemble the men in the theater and I will show them films of it."
The executive secretary passed the order on to the company commander: "By order of the Colonel, tomorrow at 2000 hours, Haley's Comet will appear above the battalion area. If it rains, fall the men out in fatigues, then march to the theater where the rare phenomenon will take place, something which happens only once every 75 years."
The company commander passed the order on to the lieutenant: "By order of the Colonel in fatigues at 2000 hours tomorrow evening, the phenomenal Haley's Comet will appear in the theater. In case of rain in the battalion area, the Colonel will give another order, something which happens once every 75 years."
The lieutenant told the sergeant: "Tomorrow at 2000 hours, the Colonel in fatigues will appear in the theater with the phenomenal Haley's Comet, something that happens every 75 years. If it rains, the Colonel will order the comet into the battalion area."
The sergeant gave the following order to the squad: "When it rains tomorrow at 2000 hours, the phenomenal 75-year-old General Haley, accompanied by the Colonel, will drive his Comet through the battalion area theater in fatigues."

~~~~~~~ KEEP SMILING:
I climbed up the door
opened the stairs.
I said my pajamas
and put on my prayers.
I switched off the bed
and climbed in the light
all because he kissed me goodnight.

Ever wonder what makes a person or team give 100%? What if greater than 100% is achieved? Here is an interesting math "fact" the might shed some light on this.
If: A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z
is represented as: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26
K N O W L E D G E
11 14 15 23 12 5 4 7 5 = 96%
H A R D W O R K
8 1 18 4 23 15 18 11 = 98%
A T T I T U D E
1 20 20 9 20 21 4 5 = 100%
So, it looks like hard work and knowledge will get you close, but attitude is what gets you there.
