Day with a Difference – 24-Feb-12

Quote of the day

Every day do something that will inch you closer to a better tomorrow – Doug Firebaugh

Thought of the day

Monkey-hunters use a box with an opening at the top, big enough for the monkey to slide its hand in. Inside the box arenuts. The monkey grabs the nuts and now its hand becomes a fist. The monkey tries to get its hand out but the opening is big enough for the hand to slide in, but too small for the fist to come out. Now the monkey has a choice, either to let go off the nuts and be free forever or hang on to the nuts and get caught. Guess what it picks every time? You guessed it. He hangs on to the nuts and gets caught.

We are no different from monkeys. We all hang on to some nuts that keep us from going forward in life. We keep rationalizing by saying, "I cannot do this because . . ." and whatever comes after "because" are the nuts that we are hanging on to which are holding us back. Successful people don’t rationalize. Two things determine if a person will be a success: reasons and results.
Reasons don’t count while results do.

Word of the day

Perspicacious” – Having keen mental perception and understanding; discerning.

Example: You are perspicacious, know the ways of the world, and are more tactful than most men of your age.

Joke of the day

Two men took a test at a job interview and both scored nine out of ten. When one was offered the job, the other asked why he didn’t get it.
“Simple,” said the manager.
“You each answered the first nine questions correctly but, on the tenth, the successful candidate wrote, ‘I don’t know.’
“You wrote, ‘Neither do I’

Have a nice weekend!

Warm Regards,
