The work week has just begun (oy!).

A few thoughts on work:

563325_4294593483892_4195369_n“People who enjoy meetings should not be in charge of anything.” ~Thomas Sowell

committee-meetingIf you want to kill any idea in the world, get a committee working on it.  ~Charles Kettering

bored-at-work1The brain is a wonderful organ; it starts working the moment you get up in the morning and does not stop until you get into the office.  ~Robert Frost

It’s easy to make a buck. It’s a lot tougher to make a difference.  ~Tom Brokaw

Make a difference.

  3. Love this! But truly, people who love meetings should NOT be in charge for the sake of the rest of us.

    The second one reminded me of a plaque Steve had in his office for years: “God so loved the world that he didn’t send a committee.” Thank you for making us smile, Mitch!

    Love Frost’s quote—-he obviously wasn’t cut out for the corporate life.

  10. I am as devoted to my work, when at Home Base as I am to my explorations,when away from it. Both involve actively participating in the day-and I, like the great Dr. Sowell, loathe meetings.
