The Thinking Behind The Tweet

As a rule, you don't see unhappy faces when people are doing a good job.

When put to good use, personal talents & strengths generate two things: positive body language and quality work results. 


Abraham Lincoln

"Every man is proud of what he does well; and no man is proud of what he does not do well. With the former, his heart is in his work; and he will do twice as much of it with less fatigue. The latter performs a little imperfectly, looks at it in disgust, turns from it, and imagines himself exceedingly tired. The little he has done, comes to nothing, for want of finishing."

Simplicity, by definition, offers understanding: Obvious Adams showed us how.

Wisdom, by definition, offers greater understanding: Ockham provided a razor.

Seek Simple...and let Wisdom set your boundaries.
