I have been collecting a few pieces of advice lately. Here are two.
First off, from a random place on the net, comes this reminder to retain perspective:
"Don't sweat the petty stuff, and don't pet the sweaty stuff."
Then via my good friend, Matt, a reminder that no job is too hopeless:
"Remember - you can't polish a turd. But you can roll it in glitter."
Aphorisms to live by, methinks.
