Some inspirational quotes...
No great thing is created suddenly. —Epictetus (A.D.200)
How true – I agree with the sentiment expressed on that site as well (re: The McDonalds culture). “Hey, I’ve got 30 seconds – make me an expert”. I hear it all of the time – drives me nuts.
Anything good – anything really worth having or acquiring – will probably take a while. I spent six years in utter obscurity at my first job (well, I gained good visibility inside the company by the time I left) and another five years in Oracle (getting known inside Oracle technically – but not so known outside Oracle) before I came anywhere close to what I do now. Eleven years. It was really thirteen – that was when I started AskTom.
Good things take time.
Well done is better than well said. —Benjamin Franklin
Actions speak louder than words. Indeed.
Know thyself. —Socrates
How many of you out there like your job? Really like your job? I mean really really like your job. Why not?
And my personal all time favorite:
No matter where you go, there you are. – Buckarro Banzai (and others…)
I like it just because it is so obvious…
