Jack’s Winning Words 3/29/17
“Part of making good decisions in business is recognizing the poor decisions you’ve made and why they were poor.” (Warren Buffet) In some way I have believed that everything W.B. touches turns to gold. Not so! I read a series of articles about the investing blunders Buffet has made. I guess it’s true about humans…”All have sinned and fallen short.” Warren’s like the rest of us. The secret of success (in any situation) is learning from your mistakes. ;-) Jack
FROM IKE AT THE MIC: Do you think we should send him the "updated" Optimist creed of "Learning from the mistakes of the past"? mmm.====JACK: First, Optimist International has to buy into the change. Iffy!
FROM TARMART REV: "...we are definitely a work in the process.====JACK: Have you seen the new gender compliant sign?...DANGER! PEOPLE WORKING.
FROM BLAZING OAKS: As Ruth Graham said, "We are all "under construction" until the day we die: On her gravestone, at the foot of a garden-shaped like a cross, are the words,, "End of Construction. Thank you for your patience!". I loved it, as I'm sure most do... ;IF we don't learn from our poor decisions, we are doomed to continue dealing with endless negative situations. We've probably all known a few people who don't seem to "learn"! Frustrating!====JACK: That reminds me of the person wearing a tag...PBPGINFWMY. When asked what it meant, the person replied.
"Please be patient; God is not finished with me yet."
FROM CHESTER THE GOOD: Warren B is not afraid to TRY. No pain,no gain.====JACK: I'm sure that you took some risks in the business world. Hopefully, there were more successes than failures.
FROM OUTHOUSE JUDY: We'd like to think the rich have the Golden Touch but they don't. They go through the poor phase also. The difference is they never give up on their dreams...blunders and all.====JACK: I've always liked the story of King Midas.
