Secret To Long Life

Eat Walk Laugh Love.jpeg

I just love this Tibetan proverb on the secret to long life

“Eat Half

Walk Double

Laugh Triple

and 

Love Without Measure,”

The rest is icing on the Tibetan cake.

If I Could Get Back Time

Past Present Future

My good friend, Jacob Elbaz, taught me this awesome saying in synagogue today:

__________________

“Yesterday is history.

Tomorrow is mystery.

Today is a present. “

__________________

Another way that my dad taught me is this:

______________________________________________________________

Today is the tomorrow that you worried about yesterday. 

______________________________________

Hope you enjoy these!

Buyer Beware, Else Buyer Remorse

Wallet
Just a quick lesson I wanted to share from my grandfather.



He used to say (or so my dad used to tell me), “You open your eyes or you open your wallet!



Put another way is that “A fool and his money are soon parted.”



But I like the way my grandfather put it even better–easier to remember and no name calling involved! 😉

Genuine Artificial Gold

Genuine Artificial Gold

When I was a youngster going to summer camp, a great guy, “The Chief” lifeguard, used to tempt the kids to behave by offering them a prize of some “genuine artificial gold.”

Here are some thought provoking sayings from a cybersecurity class I took recently (you decide whether these are true for your organization):

– Organizational Power: “He who controls the budget, billets, and IT controls the organization.”

– Micromanagement: “There is no greater enabler of micromanagement than information technology [and a crappy manager].”

– Getting to a Decision: “A non-decision is a decision.”

– Managing Performance: “An organization is not well-suited to collecting data about itself.”

– Mission and Personal Focus: “If you try to be everything to everybody, you end up being nothing to nobody.”

Three Beautiful Sayings

Three Beautiful Sayings

In the last few weeks, there are three beautiful sayings that have stuck out in my mind and I wanted to share them with you:

– Materialism and Relationships:

“It’s not about what you have, but about who you have.”

– Sin and Punishment:

“You’re not punished for your sins, but by your sins.”

– Creation and Creator:

“All things serve the will of the L-rd”

I think if we keep these in mind and use these to guide our everyday actions, we will make better choices and be better people for it.

Hope you appreciate the importance of these sayings as much as I do and find them useful in your lives. 😉
