The Law of the Garbage Truck

How often do you let other people's nonsense change your mood?

Do you let a bad driver, rude waiter, curt boss, or an insensitive employee ruin your day? The mark of a mature person is how quickly he/she can get back his/her focus on what's important.

1.Don't miss the boat.
2.Remember that we are all in the same boat.
3.Plan ahead. It wasn't raining when Noah built the Ark.
4.Stay fit. When you're 60 years old, someone may ask you to do something really big.
5.Don't listen to critics; just get on with the job that needs to be done.
6.Build your future on high ground.
7.For safety's sake, travel in pairs. It's nice to have company too.
8.Speed isn't always an advantage. The snails were on board with the cheetahs.
9.When you're stressed, float awhile.
10.Remember, the Ark was built by amateurs; the Titanic by professionals.

Quote of the week

Constructive criticism is fine—providing we are prepared to do something about what we are being critical about—rather than just being negative and becoming a part of the problem.

A Mercedes TV commercial a few years ago showed a Mercedes crashing into a concrete wall during a safety test. An engineer in a white lab coat walks over after the crash and kneels down to examine the damage, which is minimal.

A reporter then asks the engineer about Mercedes' energy absorbing car body. After the engineer tells all about the unique design the reporter asks him why Mercedes doesn't enforce their patent on the design, a design evidently copied by several other companies because of its success.

"The engineer then replied matter-of-factly, 'Because some things in life are too important not to share.'

"The world is a great mirror. It reflects back to you what you are. If you are loving, if you are friendly, if you are helpful, the world will prove loving and friendly and helpful to you. The world is what you are."

中地区は大変でしたよ

たまには日本語のニュース。結構昨年はレッドソックスの試合はみていましたが、セットアッパーで飄々と投げていたように見えた岡島投手のインタビュー。まさかこんな苦労と戦っていたとは夢にもおもいませんでした。気持ちはよく理解できます。「中地区」というのは確かに日本人にとって鬼門なのかもしれません。
