Life as a test

This life is a test.  It is only a test.  Had this been an actual life, you would have received further instructions as to what to do and where to go.


Ways of doing things

There are three ways to get something done:

(1) Do it yourself.

(2) Hire someone to do it for you.

(3) Forbid your kids to do it.


Tasks and lazy people

If you have a difficult task, give it to a lazy person – they will find an easier way to do it.


Work and timing

Anyone can do any amount of work provided it isn’t the work he is supposed to be doing at the moment.

Computers capability

Computers do what you tell them to do, not what you want them to do.


Keep on

In success there’s a tendency to keep on doing what you were doing.

Do, teach and administrate

Those who can, do. Those who can’t, teach. Those who can’t teach, administrate.


Helping in the right way

You cannot help men permanently by doing for them what they could and should do for themselves.


Ending relationships (business and non)

An anonymous, reported by Ilead365 (http://www.ilead365.com/) spends some words on necessity to use lists in order to understand the need to close a relationship.

The situation is discussed for personal relations, but some of the thoughts apply also for business relationships.

The starting point is reflecting on when (and why and how) people are morelikely to end a relationship (on an average, the frequency is definitely higher after a holiday).

The suggestion is to write down a list of pros and cons to understand the real situation.

Of course is a method like others, but it has some problems because is strictly linked to  a ptoblem of these days: fast pace.

The reason for braking a relationship more frequently after a holiday is because in these moments you’re forced to take a rest from fast paced life and real thoughts emerge.

I think we cannot make a rational decision for something not rational (because leaving a business or a company or a person is not rational at full).

And jotting down pros and cons is a way to put your mind in a standby for a while to think and understand the situation.

Think and then do is the key.

You can never do just one thing.
