Establishing Priorities

Simple problems demand simple solutions. It is the problems that remain unsolved that need due diligence so resources, effort, and time are not squandered on incorrect antidotes.

Political Apathy

Why is it that such a large percentage of the Canadian/American population does not care about which political party attains a majority in parliament/congress? Why are politicians not trusted to keep their promises once elected? Why did we, as citizens, allow ourselves to reach this low point of confidence in our elected officials? What is the solution to this non-confidence?

Amateurs vs Professionals

AMATEURS – Have tons of ideas, get excited about all of them and see none to fruition.

PROFESSIONALS – Have tons of ideas, pick one and do their best to make it happen.


AMATEURS – Think they can do everything.

PROFESSIONALS – Know it’s almost impossible to do one thing.


AMATEURS – Think they know everything.

PROFESSIONALS – Are always learning.


AMATEURS – Start with no preparation.

PROFESSIONALS – Do research, know where the bodies are buried, what the landscape holds. Better to take all these factors into account before you start, because trying to adjust on the fly is so much more difficult, it wastes time and energy and it’s hard to put a fourth wheel on a car you designed with three.


AMATEURS – Don’t finish.

PROFESSIONALS – Are all about execution. Sure, they occasionally abandon a project when they see further effort is fruitless, but the mark of a pro is someone who begins and ends. If you notice someone can’t complete a task, run from them!


AMATEURS – Are worried about image.

PROFESSIONALS – Let their work do the talking.


AMATEURS – Demonstrate insecurity.

PROFESSIONALS – Are extremely confident.


AMATEURS – Can only see what’s in front of them.

PROFESSIONALS – Are all about the big picture.


AMATEURS – Hold those above them in contempt.

PROFESSIONALS – Hold no one in contempt, but they haven’t got much time for losers. If you’re an amateur trying to graduate to professional status and you have the good fortune to meet a pro, DON’T WASTE THEIR TIME! Give just one or two compliments and ask your question. But most amateurs are so busy being sycophants the professional tunes out, or goes on at such length that the professional excuses himself.


AMATEURS – Have no idea what dues are.

PROFESSIONALS – Have paid their dues, and are still paying them.


AMATEURS – Believe in instant success.

PROFESSIONALS – Know anything worth accomplishing takes a long time, and what might look like overnight success is rarely such.



PROFESSIONALS – Never slap their own backs, and are oftentimes uncomfortable with others slapping their backs.


AMATEURS – Get nervous.

PROFESSIONALS – May be anxious, but they’ve performed the task so many times they let instinct take over, they go on their experience, nervousness never comes into the equation.


AMATEURS – Are looking for their one big break.

PROFESSIONALS – Know that life is about a series of breaks.


AMATEURS – Are afraid to fail.

PROFESSIONALS – Don’t like to fail, but when they do they pick themselves up, dust themselves off and get back in the game.


AMATEURS – Interrupt.



AMATEURS – Demonstrate their bile, they get frustrated or angry and it’s easy to see.

PROFESSIONALS – Are cool, calm and collected. You may read about the crazy owner/operator/entrepreneur, but if they’re truly nuts, they don’t last, their board replaces them, and the truth is most are not that nuts, it just makes a better story in the press to portray them as such.


AMATEURS – Bristle.

PROFESSIONALS – Show empathy.


AMATEURS – Are always telling you how busy they are and how hard they’re working.

PROFESSIONALS – Show up and stay as long as it’s interesting and profitable, bitching gains them nothing, so they don’t.


AMATEURS – Believe what people say.

PROFESSIONALS – Believe what people do.

Superstition vs Intellect

To continue to ascribe things difficult to comprehend to supernatural causes is nothing less than a lazy and convenient way of avoiding all forms of intellectual hard work.

Natural Rights

Nature confers no rights on man, only life and a world to live it. Nature does not even confer the right to live, as might be deduced by considering what would likely happen if an unarmed man met a hungry tiger face to face in the primitive forest. Society’s prime gift to man is security.

Not All Thieves Are Stupid


Some people left their car in the long-term parking at San Jose while away, and someone broke into the car. Using the information on the car’s registration in the glove compartment, they drove the car to the people’s home in Pebble Beach and robbed it. So I guess if we are going to leave the car in long-term parking, we should NOT leave the registration/insurance cards in it, nor your remote garage door opener. This gives us something to think about with all our new electronic technology.

2. GPS:
Someone had their car broken into while they were at a football game. Their car was parked on the green which was adjacent to the football stadium and specially allotted to football fans. Things stolen from the car included a garage door remote control, some money and a GPS which had been prominently mounted on the dashboard. When the victims got home, they found that their house had been ransacked and just about everything worth anything had been stolen. The thieves had used the GPS to guide them to the house. They then used the garage remote control to open the garage door and gain entry to the house. The thieves knew the owners were at the football game, they knew what time the game was scheduled to finish and so they knew how much time they had to clean out the house. It would appear that they had brought a truck to empty the house of its contents. Something to consider if you have a GPS – don’t put your home address in it… Put a nearby address (like a store or gas station) so you can still find your way home if you need to, but no one else would know where you live if your GPS were stolen .

I never thought of this……. This lady has now changed her habit of how she lists her names on her cell phone after her handbag was stolen. Her handbag, which contained her cell phone, credit card, wallet, etc., was stolen. Twenty minutes later when she called her hubby, from a pay phone telling him what had happened, hubby says, “I received your text asking about our Pin number and I’ve replied a little while ago.” When they rushed down to the bank, the bank staff told them all the money was already withdrawn. The thief had actually used the stolen cell phone to text “hubby” in the contact list and got hold of the pin number. Within 20 minutes he had withdrawn all the money from their bank account.
Moral of the lesson:
a. Do not disclose the relationship between you and the people in your contact list. Avoid using names like Home, Honey, Hubby, Sweetheart, Dad, Mom, etc….
b. And very importantly, when sensitive info is being asked through texts, CONFIRM by calling back.
c. Also, when you’re being texted by friends or family to meet them somewhere, be sure to call back to confirm that the message came from them. If you don’t reach them, be very careful about going places to meet “family and friends” who text you.

A lady went grocery-shopping at a local mall and left her purse sitting in the children’s seat of the cart while she reached something off a shelf… wait till you read the WHOLE story! Her wallet was stolen, and she reported it to the store personnel. After returning home, she received a phone call from the Mall Security to say that they had her wallet and that although there was no money in it, it did still hold her personal papers. She immediately went to pick up her wallet, only to be told by Mall Security that they had not called her. By the time she returned home again, her house had been broken into and burglarized. The thieves knew that by calling and saying they were Mall Security, they could lure her out of her house long enough for them to burglarize it.


Say Nothing

Think before you speak.

Don’t say anything until you can improve silence. By doing this and waiting your chance you will appear wittily and smarter. The rest   already talked about everything and are  silent  for lack off things to talk about.

During this first round of group conversation the participants will tell of their lives, tell a story about a personal choice they have made, and attempt to become the last person to talk in a conversation. This thought and action, by the participants, will  become confrontational in nature and direction. This may stop the discussion by embarrassing one of the speakers, or close with angry words.

You will be able to control the conversation by initiating conversation among the participants and make decisions on the questions and the topics chosen to discuss

Think hard, say little and speak only when it improves the atmosphere in the room.

Talk clearly so you are  heard and use plain words so you are not misunderstood by the audience.
