« Any fool can make a rule, and any fool will mind it | Main | Who is the most important salesperson of all? »

September 16, 2010



Did this really happen in a corpration? I am happy being a park ranger. Nothing like this happens around here.

I thought you recently said "On a circle end of one cycle is a beginning of next." So every loss is the beginning of another cycle of loss. When there is Bureaucracy this is true.

Rest Assured

I bought a doughnut and they gave me a receipt for the doughtnut. I don't need a receipt for the doughnut. I give you money and you give me the doughnut, end of transaction. We don't need to bring ink and paper into this. I can't imagine a scenario that I would have to prove that I bought a doughnut. To some skeptical friend, 'Don't even act like I didn't get that doughnut, I've got the documentation right here... It's in my file at home. ...Under "D".'” Story by Mitch Hedberg in your reference link of quotes


I think you do not sleep 
Thank you for this impactive work of passion.

@Bear - Unfortunately, this really does happen in big companies. As a wise man once told me, seemingly non-sensical events do become understood once you take into consideration the ego of each person involved at the higher levels.

@In search of... - I agree. I like to believe that Nature has a way of restoring balance through the many life cycle variations (and end for every beginning and a beginning for every end). Sometimes, we just have to have the stamina to work through the low points.

1. Welcome to our government, all campaigning, no accomplishments

2. I am very interested in photography and want to improve my ability to make “story telling” pictures. I would like to make photographic contributions to the Friday reflections if you could use it.
If I could get a heads-up on a upcoming story that needs pictures, I can attempt to create an image to go with the story. I am still learning my photography skills but would love such a challenge to work on my spare time outside of work.
Please let me know if there is an opportunity.
Thanks for sharing.

3. The person who made the comment below to your article might be surprised if he knew what corporation it occurred at. Do you think the “boss” will recognize himself and the event if he reads the article?
