MISCELLANEOUS

 

Exercising during the lunch hour makes your afternoon twice as productive. - Grant McLaren

 

At a business meal, do not turn to business until the meal has been ordered and the menus taken away. - Mark McCormack

 

There are basically two kinds of meetings: meetings for approval and meetings for idea generation. Be careful not to combine them. - Seth Godin

 

Always start a meeting with one member of the group telling his or her most embarassing personal experience relating to the subject matter. This tends to lighten up the group and provide for a free flow of information. - Kurt Wilson

 

There is an inverse correlation between how much someone talks about how busy they are and how busy they actually are. - Ben Casnocha

 

Add start time and time zone in the title of a calendar entry (e.g. "Phone call with Howard at 9:30 AM PST") to prevent timing confusion when you're traveling and computer time zone changes. - John Kembel

 

Schedule routine meetings for no more than 15 minutes and start at odd times i.e. 9:06am to 9:21am. - Rod Elder

 

Traditions are solutions to problems we don't even know about anymore. - Unknown

 

Any damn fool can lose his temper, control your emotions - Mary Kelly Concannon (deceased)

 

Good + Done (oft times) = Great - Unknown Harrvard professor to Michael Concannon

 

Knowledge is the only product which, when sold, remains with the seller. If you sell to me a widget, you have my money but you no longer have that widget, it's mine. If I sell to you some knowledge, I have your money and I still have my knowledge. It even grows in the process as each time you deliver, you learn something new. Because of these attributes, we can afford to (and it is often profitable!) to give knowledge away for free, like this wiki :)  - Vladimir Dimitroff
