      The difficult we do immediately, the impossible takes just a little longer.

          Re: favorite motivational saying

          Not really a saying... but what works for me is an attitude. When something is difficult, be it a person or a job or whatever, I do my best to avoid the tendency to react, to get frustrated or angry, or at least let that pass through. If I can find a place of openness and curiosity about something that has been going less than well and examine it from that viewpoint, see it as INTERESTING instead of frustrating, I will generally resolve it and learn something to boot. But it takes patience.
          This is my reminder to myself that no good will ever come from discussing politics or religion with anyone, ever.

            I tend to get to thinking about all the different things I need to do to get finished and the saying that helps me stay after it is...
            "Don't worry about the mule goin' blind, just load the wagon" Even learned to share that with my spanish-speaking compadres.
            "No te preocoupa que la mula esta ciega no mas...carga el vagon"
            Never get in an argument with a fool, bystanders won't know which one is which.....

                When the pipe just isn't quite straight...."Good enough for government work"

                When I'm feeling lazy.... "Hubba Hubba"

                When I'm behind schedule on a job...."Hurry for Murray" He was an old boss from years ago but I still say it all the time

                When my helper hits his thumbnail with a hammer..."Are you happy yet?...Are you happy yet?...Are you happy yet?

                I keep repeating this until he says STFU!!!

                  Depends on what is going on,

                  If things are going bad due to planning I say:
                  Leadership is like bald eagles, rare and seldom seen.

                  If I do something stupid I say:
                  It's not my fault I'm special

                  If the guys start complaining I usually say:
                  Do you want some wax paper for your candy a$$.

                  If I am just having a terrible day I say:
                  Anybody can have a off decade.

                  If a pipe won't break free, I yell as loud as I can:
                  THIS IS SPARTA!
                  It works, try it.
                  Anyone can tear a man down, few can build one up.
