Fathers are special


Fathers are special people,
Whom we often take for granted.

We do not give them high praises
Or enough credit.
For all he has done
To provide for his family.
He has done what a man suppose to.
He gives himself unselfishly.

Fathers make many sacrifices,
Just like mothers do,
But do we once tell our fathers,
Father, thank you.

He struggles each day,
To be a hero in his family's eyes.
He is the protector and the provider.
In him is where the strength lies.

Fathers aren't the kind of people,
Who shows their emotions,
But when you look inside his heart,
You know his true notions.

Father's are special people,
In many different ways.
He is what makes a family whole.
We need that now these days.

Fathers are like our heavenly father,
Who sits high above.
We can always depend on him,
To give his undying love.

Asking the right question

ASKING THE RIGHT QUESTION

Jack and Max are walking from religious service. Jack wonders whether it would be all right to smoke while praying.

Max replies, "Why don't you ask the Priest?"

So Jack goes up to the Priest and asks, "Father, may I smoke while I pray?"

The Priest replies, "No, my son, you may not! That's utter disrespect to our religion."

Jack goes back to his friend and tells him what the good Priest told him.

Max says, "I'm not surprised. You asked the wrong question. Let me try."

And so Max goes up to the Priest and asks, "Father, may I pray while I smoke?"

To which the Priest eagerly replies, "By all means, my son. By all means. You can always pray whenever you want to."



**********


Moral of the story is... The reply you get depends on the question you ask.


**********

For example, if you want a vacation when still working on a project don't ask for the holiday;


Ask: "Can I keep working on this project while I'm on vacation?"

Salesmanship



Young Brad from the country applied for a salesman's job at a city
department store. It was one of those massive stores that sells
just about everything.
The boss asked him, "Have you ever worked in sales before?" "Yes, I
was a salesman in my home town," said Brad. The boss liked him
instantly and said, "I'll give you a trial day here at the store,
start tomorrow, and I'll come and see you after closing time to see
how you went."
When the boss met up with young Brad the next day at closing time,
he saw him shaking hands with a beaming customer. After they
parted, the boss walked over and asked, "Well, that looked good!
How many sales did you make today?" "That was the only one," said
the young salesman. "Only one!?!" blurted the boss. "Most of my
staff make 20 or 30 sales a day. You'll have to do better than
that! Well, how much was the sale worth?"
"Three hundred sixty five thousand, four hundred fifty two
dollars," said young Brad. The boss stopped, truly stunned now .
"Uhm, how did you manage that?!?" "Well, when he came in this
morning and I sold him a small fish hook. Then, I sold him a medium
hook, and then a really large hook. Then I sold him a small fishing
line, a medium one, and then a big one. I then sold him a spear
gun, a wetsuit, scuba gear, nets, chum, coolers, and a keg of beer.
I asked him where he was going fishing and he said up the coast. We
decided he would probably need a new boat, so I took him down to
the boat department and sold him that twenty-foot schooner with the
twin engines.
Then, he said that his old bomb car probably wouldn't be able to
pull it, so I took him to the car department and sold him the new
Deluxe Cruiser, with a winch, storage rack, seat heating, and a
built-in TV. Oh, and cup holders."
The boss took two steps back and asked in astonishment, "You sold
all that to a guy who came in for a fish hook?!"
"No," answered the salesman. "He came in to buy a blanket."
"A blanket?"
"Yeah, an extra blanket for the couch. He just had a fight with his
wife and was sleeping on the couch. I said to him, 'Well, your
weekend's ruined, so you might as well go fishing...'"




Now that's a good sales person...

Lesson from the goose


Lessons from goose

As each goose flaps its wings, it creates an uplift for the bird behind it. By flying in a V-formation, the whole flock adds 71 percent more flying range than if each bird flew alone.

Lesson: People who share a common direction and sense of community can get where they are going quicker and easier when they are traveling on the thrust of one another.

2. When a goose gets sick, wounded, or shot down, two geese drop out of formation and follow it down. They stay with the goose to help and protect it until it is able to fly again or dies. Then they launch out with another formation to catch up with the flock.

Lesson: If we have as much sense as geese, we will stand by each other.

3. Whenever a goose falls out of the formation, it suddenly feels the drag and resistance of trying to fly alone and quickly gets back into formation to take advantage of the lifting power of the bird in front.

Lesson: If we have as much sense as a goose, we will stay in formation with those who are headed where we want to go.

4. When the lead goose gets tired, it rotates back into the formation and another goose flies at the point position.

Lesson: It pays to take turns doing the hard tasks and sharing leadership.

5. The geese in formation honk from behind to encourage those up front to keep up their speed.

Lesson: We need to make sure our honking from behind is encouraging- -not something less than helpful. This is Rex Barker, reminding you that there are constant lessons and reminders for us both as individuals and as humanity. It is up to us to learn from them and grow.

Laws of Universe



Laws of the Universe, Part Two...
1. Law of Biomechanics: The severity of the itch is inversely proportional to the reach.

2. Theater Rule: At any event, the people whose seats are furthest from the aisle arrive last.

3. Law of Coffee: As soon as you sit down to a cup of hot coffee, your boss will ask you to do something which will last until the coffee is cold.
4. Law of Dirty Rugs/Carpets: The chances of an open-faced jelly sandwich of landing face down on a floor covering are directly correlated to the newness, color and cost of the carpet/rug.

5. Law of Logical Argument: Anything is possible if you don't know what you are talking about.

6. Brown's Law: If the shoe fits, it's ugly.

7. Wilson's Law: As soon as you find a product that you really like, they will stop making it.
8. Murphy's Law of Lockers: If there are only two people in a locker room, they will have adjacent lockers
