- 13/01/2017Still chuckling at some of these Steven Wright quotes... Found on FB at https://www.facebook.com/deLyn.II/posts/10208455539333030
Comments13/01/2017 #3 Gerald HechtI always liked this one from the mid 80's I think : "How about those Stones; 35 years and their still going strong.................I don't know how they do it..............................Fred,...........................Barney........................Wilma.............................13/01/2017 #2 Phil FriedmanKevin, these are a great find for a Friday morning -- or any time for that matter. Especially, to my mind these two (with respectful edits):
1. Everyone has a photographic memory, some people just don't have any film (or an SD card).
2. Why do psychics have to ask you what your name is? (Or empaths how you're doing today?)
Thank you for chuckles to carry me through the weekend. Cheers!

Comments13/01/2017 #5 Jared 🐝 Wiese#4 Ahh, Urgent vs Important. Now you are in Stephen Covey territory, right @Harvey Lloyd?! His 4 quadrants shaped my professional time management. Sometimes we need to even forgo the urgent, if there is something more important ;)
As you get into Robbins, you may find he came up with a time mgmt system, OPA or RPM. Outcome, Purpose, Action... and Rapid Planning Method which also stands for Result, Purpose, massive Action! The key is the WHY in both - hence, the important ;)13/01/2017 #4 Preston Vander Ven#3 I have only read two of his books so far, yet I have listen to him speak on YouTube numerous times. I love the quote you shared.
Time management is a skill that I feel that can never be mastered, just built upon and strengthened. Technology changes so fast in how we can use are time, and we just have to decide how to utilize this asset of time in our life. Is a task at hand Important or Urgent. If it is neither, scratch it from your list. If the task is both, it deserves all your attention at that mention. The hardest part is now deciding what in your life is Important and what is Urgent.
For example, time with my wife and playing with my children is important. This is time I will never had again. I may also have an important e-mail. Yet, that goes into an urgent category. This is also have we have technology to help us. For example, my auto-responder can deal with this urgent task.13/01/2017 #3 Jared 🐝 Wiese#2 That's a great one that I don't remember reading/hearing! (I do remember many ;)
How about this related one "Once you have mastered time, you will understand how true it is that most people overestimate what they can accomplish in a year - and underestimate what they can achieve in a decade! -Tony Robbins"13/01/2017 #2 Preston Vander Ven#1 I love one of Tony Robbin's challenges. He said, "Honestly asked yourself this, am I going to like where I will be 5 years from now if I don't change what I am doing today? How about 10 years or 20?" He later added, "If your answer is Yes, then your on the right track. If your answer is NO, then you need to adjust your strategy".12/01/2017 #1 Jared 🐝 WieseHi Preston,

Comments15/12/2016 #9 AnonymousTiming is everything, @Ben Pinto. I just had a lengthy exchange with someone who was trying as hard as he could to make something simple as complicated as possible. Sometimes I think people believe that the harder something seems, the more valuable it is. Simple is always better. Thanks for sharing this one!03/12/2016 #3 David B. GrinbergExcellent points and wonderful images, Ben. I agree that brevity is key in today's frenetically paced mobile, digital and virtual Information Age. Let's also recall that the average attention span of most people is less than that of a goldfish, at least according to one recent study. Moreover, information overload online and off is fast becoming the rule, rather than the exception.
Thus, distilling any information, especially sales pitches, to a clear and concise statement is critically important. Thanks for the good advice, which I'm sharing on three hives. Keep buzzing, Ben!03/12/2016 #1 Robert CormackWe do seem to hate simplicity @Ben Pinto. It's seems a shame when people must realize how bombarded we are with information. Obviously, you sell more, convince more, persuade more with simple language. That seems to escape most marketers, and they lose business because of it. Thanks for the post.

Comments07/11/2016 #3 Phil FriedmanBen, I am suspicious of those who see "influencing people" as a life goal. But I do agree with you that we all need to work to keep the "I" out of our discussions, if we are to be part of a community in which discussion is intended to be a bridge, rather than a soapbox. Cheers!

- Producer03/11/2016What Happened to Nice?I consider myself a simple soul, perhaps a little high maintenance because of my age but I am realistic with common sense goals. I grew up sheltered, an only child, always wishing for a brother or sister. I was not blessed with either but had many...
Comments30/11/2016 #153 Max🐝 J. CarterI think when I look at the concept of nice and life, I can't help but to feel that life isn't always nice even when it is being kind.
To me the fundamental difference between nice and kind is honesty.
Nice will let one be silent instead of honest in the interest of being nice. Kindness will say something honest because sometimes being nice is being cruel and allowing suffering to continue or be perpetuated which leads to suffering be inflicted on others as well.
Kindness is honesty in all things as it is unkind and cruel to lie for any reason even if its to be nice based on my experience.
Compassion is similar in action. As is mercy. . This is why I often say that I am nice until it is time to be kind, you know honest.30/11/2016 #152 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher#106 Thanks @Jared 🐝 Wiese and your right, most people are good. As for those who have rotten egos, it's become easy for me to ignore. My health means a lot to me ha ha. Toxic people attract other toxic people. Those of us who are sensitive to toxins know when it's healthy to just back off and stay away. :))09/11/2016 #151 Gerald Hecht#150 @Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman I will comment (albeit awkwardly) out of plain good manners (I was brought up that way; and, for the first few decades of my life anyway, was actually known amongst my friends and family as "Mr. Manners"); regarding anything I post or comment on, however, they are usually "stand alone/RES IPSA LOQUITUR thingies" --unless explicitly requesting engagement or posing queries, etc. I do however often read followup responses, and sometimes join in a discussion, if it seems necessary08/11/2016 #143 Claire 🐝 Cardwell#131 @Gerald Hecht you are welcome - there's plenty more where that one came from. One family favourite is 'Just Be' now those not in the know think it's the quote from Buddha, but it's short for Just be off with you and scratch yerself! I would love to say that to Donald Trump!08/11/2016 #142 Christine Stevens#138 You can early or absentee vote in most jurisdictions with little or no issue. All you have to do in Virginia is work 30 miles away or kick up a fuss and say it is too hard to get to the polls. I know someone who works around the corner from her polling location, could literally go vote on her lunch break, and voted early.08/11/2016 #138 Jared 🐝 Wiese#132 #136
"Difficulty" for the U.S., per Wikipedia:
"the US is no longer primarily an agrarian society, and Tuesday is now normally a work day throughout the country with most voters working. This has led activists to object to Election Day (ED) being on a Tuesday on the grounds that it decreases voter turnout. They advocate either making ED a federal holiday or allowing voters to cast their ballots over two or more days. Activists also encourage workplaces to allow their employees paid time off in lieu of such mandates and encourage voters to make use of early voting and postal voting facilities when available and convenient.
Several commentators have noted the irony of ED being a regular working day, while Veterans Day, which typically falls on November 11, is a federal holiday. Many have called for the holidays to be merged, so citizens can have a day off to vote. This would be seen as a way to honor veterans by exercising the democratic right to vote.
...[DE, HI, KY, MT, NJ, NY, OH, WV & PR] have declared ED a civic holiday. Some other states require that workers be permitted to take time off from employment without loss of pay. CA Elections Code Section 14000 and NY State Election Law provide that employees without sufficient time to vote must be allowed two hours off with pay, at the beginning or end of a shift. Democracy Day, a planned federal holiday to coincide with ED, was unsuccessfully proposed in the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate in 2005. It was later reintroduced in the Senate in 2014 and has not been enacted.
...Some employers allow their employees to come in late or leave early on ED to allow them an opportunity to get to their precinct and vote."
