Some Things to Think About

Definition of a Generalist:
One who learns less and less about more and more
Until they know nothing about everything.

Definition of a Specialist:
One who learns more and more about less and less
Until they know everything about nothing.

Today's mighty oak tree is
yesterday's nut that held its ground.

Regardless of how hard you may try,
it is impossible to baptize a cat.

When in charge, ponder.
When in trouble, delegate.
When in doubt, mumble.

Blessed are they that go about in circles,
for they shall be known as big wheels.

Before you find your Prince Charming,
you will have to kiss a lot of frogs.
