24 Things You Need to Consider

Since the dawn of the "Computer Age" certain things have come to light that we would have never thought of.  Here is a list of 24 items you might not have thought about, but alas are true.

1. I think part of a best friend's job should be to immediately clear your computer and on line history if you die.

2. Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

3. I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap when I was younger.

4. There is a great need for a sarcasm font.

5. How the hell are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet?

6. Was learning cursive really necessary?

7. Google Maps / Map Quest really needs to start their directions on #5. I'm pretty sure I know how to get out of my neighborhood.

8. Obituaries would be a lot more interesting if they told you how the person died.

9. I can't remember the last time I wasn't at least kind of tired.

10. Bad decisions make good stories (and better videos).

11. You …

Stress Test (humor)

This post  has to do with a subject I enjoy, Stress.  Yes, Stress!  As I like to say, I am generous with stress. I do not have stress, I give stress, but this post deals with real stress and not an easy way out......enjoy…

You pick up a hitchhiker, a beautiful girl. Suddenly she faints inside your car and you take her to the hospital. Now that's stressful.

But at the hospital, they say she is pregnant & congratulate you that you are going to be a father. You say that you are not the father, but the girl says you are. This is getting very stressful.

Then... you request a DNA test to prove that you are not the father. After the tests are completed, the doctor says that you are infertile, and probably have been since birth. You are extremely stressed but relieved.

On your way back home, you think about your 3 kids .....
NOW THAT'S STRESS!

The 100 Best Quotations for Being an Entrepreneur

Since I have been emailing friends for over 15 years with quotations, and keep a post of quotations (wordecho.blogspot.com), I have been asked by quite a friends to compile a list of quotations that would best describe the characteristics of an entrepreneur since it seems like most "Best" lists just seem to be a Hodge-podge of quotations without any real focus. 

In a previous post (Traits of an Entrepreneur), I listed the 18 traits of an entrepreneur which are: Creative, Perseverance, Self-Confident, Intuitive, Independent, Self-Motivated, Optimistic, Focused, Forward-Looking, Decisive, Enterprising, Disciplined, Cooperative, Results Oriented, Energetic, Persuasive and Organized.  This list of quotations highlight these 18 characteristics. 
1. “Creative people are at their most productive when they appear to be doing nothing.”
--Tim Askew

2. “Happiness is not in the mere possession of money; it lies in the joy of achievement, in the thrill of creative effort.”

The Hit Man (humor)

I thought I would start it off with a bang, and a little ironic humor. Enjoy, and remember the value of discounting….

Two old friends were just about to tee off at the first hole of their local golf course when a guy carrying a golf bag called out to them,

"Do you mind if I join you? My partner didn't show up."

"Sure," they said, "You're welcome."

So they started playing and enjoyed the game and the company of the newcomer.

Part way around the course, one of the friends asked the newcomer, "What do you do for a living?"

"I'm an assassin, a hit man," was the reply.

"You're joking!" was the response.

"No, I'm not," he said, reaching into his golf bag, and pulling out a beautiful Martini sniper's rifle with a large telescopic sight.

"Here are my tools."

"That's a beautiful telescopic sight," said the other friend, "Can I take a look? I think I might…
