We have been challenged by our management to do MORE with LESS!.
It is a very popular concept utilized as an operational philosophy
throughout the industrial world, both in mainland U.S. and abroad in
foreign markets. This concept is by no means recent. Let me remind
the reader that this concept was directly utilized by an ancient
Egyptian leader (the Pharaoh). This leader mandated that a smaller
quantity of straw be utilized as raw material for manufacturing bricks.
The captive Israelites who faced this edict were under a different set of
circumstances than those challenges facing todays organizations, but
the principle of operation with reduced resources endures today.
We can summon the resources of available resources of technology in
place, together with a professionalized teamwork philosophy as our
closest allies for enabling our missions. It is such resources as these,
plus the added critical ingredient of Individual and Collective
contributions of Commitment and Ownership that will afford us the
maximum opportunity to remain leaders in our respective industries,
and to be successful in maintaining good working relationships in the
communities we serve.
Because of the inevitability of Diminishing Resources, organizations
will be compelled to increase our productivity standards to levels
heretofore unreached. The magnitude of creative energy required to
maintain our results at the top will be decidedly substantial. The
magnitude of commitment required to sustain continuous high
performance at all organizational levels will likewise be significant.
The COMBINATION of FOCUSED CREATIVITY and COMMITMENT
constitute what I DEFINE as RIGHT THINKING .
On Busyness: Instead of "Busier than a one armed paper hanger in a
with the hives", try this one: "Busier than an Entomological Podiatrist in a millipede
foot care Clinic!"
On not being able to to enter the DalNet Chat server on a busy night: I told a
in ICQ about it. Ended up a "classic quote"! LOL!
"Nightscribe: retry #8 no good...hmmmm...well say hi to everyone for me..tell them a piece of electronic
velcro stopped my friendly chat packet transmission from reaching the on switch LOL"
A Couple Of My Favorite Quotes From Others:
"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out
where the strong man
stumbled or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs
to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred with dust and sweat
and blood. At best, he knows the triumph of high achievement; if he fails, at least
he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and
timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat."
"Great spirits have often encountered
violent opposition from mediocre minds"
"We have too many men of science, too few men of God. We have grasped
the mystery of the atom and rejected the Sermon on the Mount . . . .
The world has achieved brilliance without wisdom, power without conscience.
Ours is a world of nuclear giants and ethical infants. We know more about war
than we know about peace, more about killing than we know about living."
