  1. Some of the thoughts remind me some of the “rules” that has appeared in my mind during my daily work:
    3, 22.and 31 –> “When many people are part of your plan to do something, you certainly have to think for this plan as a direction, but not a route, to the intended goal”
    34 –> “When I do a mistake, all shall be informed for It in order not to work that way, But if my work is well-done, no one shall greet me because this is the expected end.”
    3 and 34 – “To ask yourself “Shall anyone like what I do?” – this is the best way to kill the joy of your workday.”

  2. Wow,
    Love the quote at the beginning. I have seen it before and it touched me.
    As I read through the list and went further down I realised if these statements were to be true then that is why life is difficult for me at times. Perhaps I am too naive for my own good.

    1. Ravisinngh, your words reminded me a phrase from my childhood, It was written somewhere in a list of so called “proverbs”. In short, the words were “When you go somewhere, always make sure to have a way back”. I have a vague suspicion for an initial military origin of this sentence – “When you plan to attack, don’t forget to have a possible way to retreat.”

  3. There is certainly wisdom conveyed in this list. The old saying life’s a bitch while not the whole truth, expresses a portion of the truth. Much like the Yin and Yang there is good and bad. An inseparable dichotomy that punctuates all aspects of life.
