Applying them is the tricky bit

Them as in the 16 Rules of Success from Bob Parsons.

I didn't realize that I was familiar with Bob Parsons until stumbling onto those maxims and googling the author. I used some of his Parsons Technology software back in the 90s. He started that company in his basement in 1982 and sold out to Intuit (Quicken) for $62 million 14 years later. He then went on to found Godaddy.

You can definitely call him an achiever.

How cool is that! People like that are nothing less than inspirational. I wish for all of us to find some modocum of success in whatever is our life mission.

I like life lessons like that. But like you say, undrstanding them is one thing. Applying them is quite another. Except the last one. That ne's easy.

Thanks for the comments!

I've been bizzy, bizzy and have neglected the blog. One of these days I need to get organized.

No... actually I need to learn how to use that word, e.g., "No! I can't help you right now. I've other things to do."

Now that was good advice. It served as a great reminder to me.

Hope the bizzy has been fun bizzy.
