Day with a Difference - Feb 12, 2006

Today's Inspirational Quote:

"Whatever the price, identify it now. What will you have to go through to get where you want to be? ... There is a price you can pay to be free of the situation once and for all. It may be a fantastic price or a tiny one - but there is a price."

WHOSE TIME IS RIGHT? (Cappucino Success story)

There was a man who works as a foreman at a factory. Every morning on his way to work , he would pass a particular shop selling watches. He will stop in front of the shop and adjust the time on his wrist watch, andwill then proceed to work. He will do this everyday. The watch shop owner became very curious and one day stopped the man and asked him what he was doing. The man said that he was the foreman of the factory andeveryday it was his duty to ring the bell to sound the alarm at 5.00pm to indicate that it was time to stop work for the day. He wanted to be accurate with the time and therefore everyday he would look at the bigclock in the shop to adjust the time on his wrist watch. The shop owner started laughing! He said, “Everyday at 5.00pm when the factory bell sounds the alarm, I would quickly adjust the time on my clock”.

We should role model leaders with good characters, values and beliefs, otherwise we may find that we may reachthe “top of our ladder”, but only to realize that we are on “top of the wrong ladder”.

I tried to explain that Michigan was an hour ahead of Illinois, but she could not understand the concept of time zones. Finally, I told her the plane went very fast, and she bought that!

A senior Senator called and had a question about the documents he needed in order to fly to China. After a lengthy discussion about passports, I reminded him that he needed a visa. "Oh, no I don't. I've been to China many times and never had to have one of those." I double checked and sure enough, his stay required a visa. When I told him this he said, "Look, I've been

Have a memorable day and a great week ahead!
