PERSPECTIVE
Here's a quiet thought for a Sunday, borrowed from a
Toastmasters friend of mine:
We go to school and toil, hoping to learn the skills that will
give us the chance to toil even harder for the rest of our
lives. This leads to the mistaken notion that all good things
require work.
Here's wishing you a restful and enjoyable Sunday.

ATTITUDE
I read this story, and I just had to pass it on. It is the classic
how to make lemonade out of lemons tale:
I went to breakfast at a restaurant where the special was two
eggs, bacon, hash browns and toast for $1.99. "Sounds
good," I said. "But I don't want the eggs."
"Then I'll have to charge you two dollars and forty-nine cents
because you're ordering a la carte," the waitress warned her.
"You mean I'd have to pay for not taking the eggs?" I asked
incredulously. "I'll take the special."
"How do you want your eggs?"
"Raw and in the shell," I replied. I took the two eggs home
with me.
Please forward this email to someone who could use a little
inspiration today.
One final note, you might recall an edition about bananas
and expectations in early April. I received a lot of positive
feedback about it. I have expanded it into a satirical article
(as I often do), which is available at this link:

What?!? No Bananas?
By David Leonhardt
"Where are your bananas?"
It seemed like a
logical question to ask. For all of my forty trips
around the sun, bananas were a key item to place
in the grocery cart.
For the first time I could
recall, the banana bin was empty. So I asked a
store worker where the bananas were.
"We don't have any," he replied. "We'll be getting
some in tomorrow."
It took me a few moments to absorb this
information. "What do you mean you don't
have
any?" I thought.
"
Every
store has bananas."
True, sometimes they are almost green enough to
pass for bent cucumbers. And they occasionally
appear to have lost an arm-wrestling match with a
watermelon.
But there are always bananas of
some sort in the store.
Then it dawned on me just how foolish my
expectations were.
I live well north of New York
City.
Even if somebody invented a way to

cultivate them in the Great White North, it was
early April, and they would not bear fruit at that
time of year. For goodness sake, outside the
snow was falling and inside I was expecting
tropical bananas!
If you commute in a big city, you might have
noticed traffic grinding to a halt. Why? Look to
bananas for the answer. Just as I was frustrated
by my grocery expectations not being met,
millions of commuters are frustrated daily by their
traffic expectations not being met.
Consider some of the major machines in your life,
such as television. Twenty years ago, we would
watch a TV show.
Ads would come and ads
would go, but we would watch it from start to
finish. Who does that these days?
Reality shows
"What were you watching, honey?"
"I dunno. But I think I caught 412 channels."
And if ever you should lose the converter ... I
know, I know, this is a family publication, so we'll
cut the profanity.
And what about the Internet? If a web site takes
more than five seconds to load, where are we?
"Did you order that book from Amazon for me?"

"I dunno. But I think I reached warp speed with
my clicking finger. Ouch! I think I sprained it."
If fancy TV gadgets and high-speed Internet feed
our
impatience,
what
about
car
ads?
Vrroooooommm. See how fast this car can go?
Wow. It does zero to 60 in 5.2 seconds ... in the
ad. And zero to zero in half an hour stuck on the
Santa Monica Freeway.
As we expect our machines each day to break
yesterday's speed record, our cars seem to be
slowing to a crawl.
That's because more and
more people are squeezing onto the same road
space trying to zoom faster and faster and
honking their horns louder and louder (because

horns get honked, right? Especially when they
get honked LONG and LOUD, right?).
Is it just me, or is this poor math? A realist would
expect traffic to get a little slower each year,
which just proves how rare realists really are.
Every one of us expects to move faster and
faster.
And I expect bananas on the store shelf even
when it is snowing outside. So what can we do?
Easy, we can grumble and complain.
We can
shout abusive words at store clerks and other
drivers.
We
can
honk
our
horns
(not
recommended in the fruit section).

Or we can step back and ask ourselves logical
questions about what we should realistically
expect.
For instance, "Can I really expect
bananas on my grocer's shelves in the middle of
winter when I know the truck is stuck in traffic?"

RELAXATION
POP QUIZ:
What's the difference between finger pointing and finger
painting?
ANSWER:
Finger painting is more colorful. Other than that, they're both
childish games.
Can you get through the day without blaming anyone for
anything? That's tougher than it looks ... not blaming a
colleague or friend or the government or the weather. Try it.
It's a very liberating experience.

REGRET
Here's a great quote from motivational speaker Bob Proctor:
"Most people tiptoe their way through life, hoping to make it
safely to death."
Think about what he says. Sorry if the thought is unsettling,
but are there important things you would want to do before
you die? Things for your children? Things for yourself?
Things for the needy? Things for the community?
Don't put off until tomorrow what you may not be around to
do. Start today.
