    ADVICE

    We could all save ourselves a lot of words if we'd only remember that people rarely take advice unless they have to pay for it.

    Source Unknown.


    The trouble with good advice is that it usually interferes with your plans.

    Traditional.


    Good advice is what your own kids disregard but save to give to their kids.

    Traditional.


    Business is made up of ambiguous victories and nebulous defeats. Claim them all as victories. Keep track of what you do; someone is sure to ask. Be comfortable around senior managers, or learn to fake it. Never bring your boss a problem without some solution. You are getting paid to think, not to whine. Long hours don't mean anything; results count, not effort. Write down ideas; they get lost like good pens.

    Always arrive at work 30 minutes before your boss. Be sure to sit at the conference table-never by the wall. Help other people that network for jobs. What goes around comes around. Don't take sick days-unless you are. Assume no one can/will keep a secret. Always have an answer to the question "What would I do if I lost my job tomorrow?" Go to the company holiday party. Don't get get drunk at the company holiday party. Avoid working on the weekends. Work longer during the week if you have to. The most successful people in business are interesting.

    Sometimes you'll be on a roll and everything will click; take maximum advantage. When the opposite is true, hold steady and wait it out.  Never in your life say," It's not my job." Be loyal to your career, your interests and yourself. Understand the skills and abilities that set you apart. When ever you have an opportunity, use them. People remember the end of the project. As they say in boxing," Always finish stronger than you start."

    1. Never have more children than you have car windows.
    2. Never loan your car to someone to whom you have given birth.
    3. Pick your friends carefully. A "friend" never goes on a diet when you are fat or tells you how lucky you are to have a husband who remembers Mother's Day--when his gift is a smoke alarm.
    4. Seize the moment. Remember all those women on the Titanic who waved off the dessert cart.
    5. Know the difference between success and fame. Success is Mother Teresa. Fame is Madonna.
    6. Never be in a hurry to terminate a marriage. Remember, you may need this man or woman someday to finish a sentence.
    7. There are no guarantees in marriage. If that's what you're looking for, go live with a Sears battery.
    8. Never go to a class reunion pregnant. They will think that's all you have been doing since you graduated. 

    Erma Bombeck.


    Forget each kindness that you do as soon as you have done it. Forget the praise that falls to you the moment you have won it. Forget the slander that you hear before you can repeat it. Forget each slight, each spite, each sneer, whenever you may meet. Remember every promise made and keep it to the letter. Remember those who lend you aid and be a grateful debtor. Remember all the happiness that comes your way in living. Forget each worry and distress; be hopeful and forgiving. Remember good, remember truth, remember heaven is above you. And you will find, through age and youth, that many will love you.
