This pretty much sums up how I live my life. My parents will remember that I had a poster on my wall with these rules on it throughout my teenage and college years:
If anything can go wrong, Fix it! (To hell with Murphy!)
When given a choice â€“ Take Both!
Multiple projects lead to multiple successes.
Start at the top then work your way up.
Do it by the bookâ€¦but be the author!
When forced to compromise, ask for more.
If you canâ€™t beat them, join them, then beat them.
If itâ€™s worth doing, itâ€™s got to be done right now.
If you canâ€™t win, change the rules.
If you canâ€™t change the rules, then ignore them.
Perfection is not optional.
When faced without a challenge, make one.
â€œNoâ€ simply means begin again at one level higher.
Donâ€™t walk when you can run.
Bureaucracy is a challenge to be conquered with a righteous attitude, a tolerance for stupidity, and a bulldozer when necessary.
When in doubt: THINK!
Patience is a virtue, but persistence to the point of success is a blessing.
The squeaky wheel gets replaced.
The faster you move, the slower time passes, the longer you live.
