I Have Learned…

  • That it’s useless to yell when a whisper will do.
  • There is, almost always, more than one right answer.
  • Excellence is always achievable, perfection never.
  • Laughter is the best aphrodisiac.
  • Success is planned, failure is not.
  • 90% of communicating is listening.
  • Happiness shared is happiness doubled.
  • You can never do a wrong thing right.
  • The reason some people are so petty is… the stakes are so small.
  • If, at first, you do succeed, you need to try something harder.
  • The older I get, the more I want less.
  • Failure is just another form of feedback.
  • It’s always the right time to do the right thing.
  • These are the good old days.
  • Success is getting what you want; happiness is liking what you get.
  • Success is not a destination, it’s the joyful journey along the way
  • Profit is not a purpose, it’s a result.
  • You can’t change direction unless you’re already on the move.
  • Every day I wake to the future.
  • If you’re not satisfied with what you have, be grateful for what you don’t have.
  • And finally, do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not; just remember that what you have now was once among the things only hoped for.
