The Monday Morning Quote #500

“Difference is the essence of humanity. Difference is an accident of birth, and it should therefore never be the source of hatred or conflict. The answer to difference is to respect it. Therein lies a most fundamental principle of peace: respect for diversity.”

John Hume

The 500th Monday Morning Quote and a very personal one.

Quote of the Day – On reviewing all series of The Apprentice

Sam Woolaston writing after 14 years as a TV reviewer.

“The Apprentice, maybe more than anything else, drives home that I have been doing this long enough; too long, some might say. I have written 20 – twenty – reviews of The Apprentice, and that’s not including The Young Apprentice, plus interviews with winners, with Lord Sugar and with Sugar’s sidekicks. I have nothing left of any interest to say about The Apprentice.

They are all tossers – I have said so too many times.”

It’s not just the show that is tired – I am, too.”

I bailed out after series one having come to the same conclusion, so glad I didn’t waste any more of my life on it.

The Monday Morning Quote #499

“When you are doing something that isn’t working,

it’s time to do something different.”

O.A. Bud Ham

I rarely comment on the quotes that I post, if they are worth reading then they should stand up on their own. This one is different because it falls into the “Sybil Fawlty” group of “bleedin obvious”. We have all been there and (sometimes) not done that. We have all stayed in a comfort zone that is increasing in discomfort but has not reached the tipping point. If my bringing these words from Bud’s book “You are in the right place” to your attention is a catalyst to help you do something different then my work is worthwhile.

“Don’t wait until all the conditions are perfect for you to begin.

Beginning makes the conditions perfect.”

serenity is the feeling that nothing is.”

The Monday Morning Quote #495

“Falsehood flies, and truth comes limping after it, so that when men come to be undeceived, it is too late; the jest is over, and the tale hath had its effect: like a man, who hath thought of a good repartee when the discourse is changed, or the company parted; or like a physician, who hath found out an infallible medicine, after the patient is dead.”

Jonathan Swift
