"[A true story - with a message about considering turning your unique life experiences, problems and desires into a vocation or career. In that way you turn 'lemons into lemonade' and 'scars into stars'. - 'Patch Adams' - 'Patch Adams' is a movie, released in 1998, starring Robin Williams and Monica Potter and based on the book 'Gesundheit: Good Health Is a Laughing Matter' by Dr. Hunter 'Patch' Adams and Maureen Mylander, about his approach to medicine emphasizing humor. Born on May 28, 1945, he is an American physician, social activist, clown, and author. And like Robin Williams' character in the film, the real Patch Adams did in fact contemplate suicide. After Patch's father passed away of a heart attack when they were stationed in Germany, Patch's family moved back home and had to adjust to civilian life in suburban northern Virginia. For a short time, they stayed with his aunt and uncle. His uncle was a lawyer and an independent thinker, who quickly became Patch's surrogate father. Even after he, his mother, and his brother moved into their own house, Patch still spent a lot of time talking to his uncle. Early during his freshman year in college, the uncle who Patch admired committed suicide. It didn't happen long after his high school girlfriend Donna had broke up with him. Just before Halloween in 1964, an extremely depressed Patch Adams dropped out of college. In an interview, he discussed his thoughts of suicide:] I obsessed about suicide every day but needed to work up to it, so I went to a cliff near the college called Lover's Leap and sat at the edge, writing epic poetry to Donna. I composed sonnets, searching for the right words that would really get to her. If I had ever finished my outpourings I would have jumped. Fortunately, I was too long-winded. After a disastrous visit with Donna, I took a Greyhound bus home and trudged six miles through snow to my mother's doorstep. When she opened the door I told her that I'd been trying to kill myself so she'd better check me into a mental hospital. [After considering suicide, Patch Adams advised his mother to check him into a psychiatric facility. It was there that he realized that many of the patients around him suffered from extreme lonliness. They didn't have people in their lives who loved them as did he. He made friends with the patients, and he soon discovered that the key to human happiness is having loving and caring people in your life. It was then that he decided that the best way to spread his newfound knowledge was by becoming a doctor. Patch became 'a student of life, of happy life. I wanted to know everything possible about people and happiness and friendship,' Patch says. He had been a student of science since he was a boy, and he always had a desire to be a doctor. His temporary stay at the mental hospital provided him with the right motivation to become one. The film depicts a mid-life patch (Robin Williams) staying at a mental hospital. In reality, Patch Adams endured three different mental hospitalizations when he was much younger, during the time when he was 17 and 18-years-old.]" - Patch Adams

"[A story - with a message about picking a vocation and career according to your individual passions, interests and talents if you are to be happy and productive.] - The Genius Tailor - It seems that a man had gone to the tailor to have a suit made cheaply, but when the suit was finished and he went to try it on, it didn't fit him at all. Complaining that the jacket was too big in back, the right arm was too long, one pant leg was too short and three buttons were missing, the man was justifiably upset. 'No problem,' said the tailor, 'just hunch your back, bend your arm, walk with a limp, and stick your fingers through the button holes and you'll look just fine!' The man contorted his body to fit the suit and left, feeling very uncomfortable. Discomfort always comes to those that try to fit into clothes or a job that does not fit their uniqueness." - Unknown

"[A true story - with a message about the importance of recreation and taking time to relax.] - Balance - Once the great Anthony of the Desert was relaxing with his disciples outside his hut when a hunter came by. The hunter was surprised to see Anthony relaxing, and rebuffed him for taking it easy. It was not his idea of what a holy monk should be doing. Anthony replied, 'Bend your bow and shoot an arrow.' And the hunter did so. 'Bend it again and shoot another arrow,' said Anthony. The hunter did so, again and again. The hunter finally said, 'Abba Anthony, if I keep my bow always stretched, it will break.' 'So it is with the monk,' replied Anthony. 'If we push ourselves beyond measure, we will break. It is right from time to time to relax our efforts!!' " - Fr. Brian Cavanaugh, TOR

"[A story - with a message about the importance of taking the time to get rest, relaxation and recreation in order to refresh, re-energise and be at one's best!] - Busy - Once upon a time a very strong woodcutter asked for a job from a timber merchant, and he got it. The pay was very good and so were the working conditions. For that reason, the woodcutter was determined to do his best. His boss gave him an axe and showed him the area where he was supposed to work. The first day, the woodcutter cut down 18 trees. ‘Congratulations,’ the boss said. ‘Go on that way!’ Very motivated by the boss’s words, the woodcutter tried harder the next day, but he only could cut down 15 trees. The third day he tried even harder, but he only could cut down 10 trees. Day after day he was bringing less and less trees. ‘I must be losing my strength’, the woodcutter thought. He went to the boss and apologized, saying that he could not understand what was going on. ‘When was the last time you sharpened your axe?’ the boss asked. ‘Sharpen? I had no time to sharpen my axe. I have been very busy trying to cut trees...’" - Stephen Covey

"[A story - with a message about choosing a vocation and career and living up to your full potential.] - The Greatest General - Let tell you about a man who died and met Saint Peter at the pearly gates. Realizing Saint Peter was a wise and knowledgeable person, he said, ‘Saint Peter, I have been interested in military history for many years. Tell me who was the greatest general of all times?’ Saint Peter quickly responded, ‘Oh, that's a simple question. It is that man right over there,’ as he pointed nearby. The man said, ‘You must be mistaken, Saint Peter. I knew that man on earth. He was just a common laborer.’ ‘That's right, my friend,’ replied Saint Peter. ‘But he would have been the greatest general of all time -- if he had been a general.’ You were created with natural abilities and an internal compass that guides you toward a particular focus for your life. That's only the starting point; the next step is yours. You have an obligation to expand that potential to its ultimate destiny. Michelangelo said, ‘It is only well with me when I have a chisel in my hand.’ Discover what you are supposed to do and do it!" - Neil Eskelin

"[A true story - with a message about choosing your vocation and career and living up to your potential.] - Sitting on Your Talent - There was a man played piano in a bar. He was a good piano player. People came out just to hear him play. But one night, a patron told him he didn't want to hear him just play anymore. He wanted him to sing a song. The man said, ‘I don't sing.’ But the customer was persistent. He told the bartender, ‘I'm tired of listening to the piano. I want that guy to sing!’ The bartender shouted across the room, ‘Hey buddy! If you want to get paid, sing a song. The patrons are asking you to sing!’ So he did. He sang a song. A piano player who had never sung in public did so for the very first time. And nobody had ever heard the song 'Mona Lisa' sung the way it was sung that night by Nat King Cole! He had talent he was sitting on [not using, not sharing]! He may have lived the rest of his life as a no-name piano player in a no-name bar, but because he had to sing, he went on to become one of the best-known entertainers in America. You, too, have skills and abilities. You may not feel as if your ‘talent’ is particularly great, but it may be better than you think! And with persistence, most skills can be improved. Besides, you may as well have no ability at all if you sit on whatever talent you possess!" - Steve Goodier

"[A true story - with a message about finding your vocation and career.] - Follow Your Bliss - Author Joseph Campbell often talked about ‘following your bliss.’ I heard of a bus driver in Chicago who does just that. He sings while he drives. That's right... SINGS! And I don't mean he sings softly to himself, either. He sings so that the whole bus can hear! All day long he drives and sings. He was once interviewed on Chicago television. He said that he is not actually a bus driver. ‘I'm a professional singer,’ he asserted. ‘I only drive the bus to get a captive audience every single day.’ His ‘bliss’ is not driving a bus, though that may be a source of enjoyment for some people. His bliss is singing. And the supervisors at the Chicago Transit Authority are perfectly happy about the whole arrangement. You see, people line up to ride his bus. They even let other busses pass by so they can ride with the ‘singing bus driver.’ They love it! Here is a man who believes he knows why he was put here on earth. For him, it is to make people happy. And the more he sings, the more people he makes happy! He has found a way to align his purpose in living with his occupation. By following his bliss, he is actually living the kind of life he believes he was meant to live. Not everybody can identify a purpose in life. But when you do, and when you pursue it, you will be living the kind of life you feel you were meant to live. And chances are... you will be happy." - Steve Goodier

"[Poem: about the joy of working on a sailing ship.]

'Sea Fever'

I must go down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky,
And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by,
And the wheel's kick and the wind's song and the white sail's shaking,
And a grey mist on the sea's face, and a grey dawn breaking.

I must go down to the seas again, for the call of the running tide
Is a wild call and a clear call that may not be denied;
And all I ask is a windy day with the white clouds flying,
And the flung spray and the blown spume, and the sea-gulls crying.

I must go down to the seas again, to the vagrant gypsy life,
To the gull's way and the whale's way, where the wind's like a whetted knife;
And all I ask is a merry yarn from a laughing fellow-rover,
And quiet sleep and a sweet dream when the long trick's over.

" - John Masefield
Masefield's use of the word 'trick' indicates a period of duty on a specific task such as handling the wheel or lookout. [http://allpoetry.com/Sea-Fever ]

'Get Drunk'

Always be drunk.
That's it!
The great imperative!
In order not to feel
Time's horrid fardel
bruise your shoulders,
grinding you into the earth,
Get drunk and stay that way.
On what?
On wine, poetry, virtue, whatever.
But get drunk.
And if you sometimes happen to wake up
on the porches of a palace,
in the green grass of a ditch,
in the dismal loneliness of your own room,
your drunkenness gone or disappearing,
ask the wind,
the wave,
the star,
the bird,
the clock,
ask everything that flees,
everything that groans
or rolls
or sings,
everything that speaks,
ask what time it is;
and the wind,
the wave,
the star,
the bird,
the clock
will answer you:
'Time to get drunk!'
Don't be martyred slaves of Time,
Get drunk!
Stay drunk!
On wine, virtue, poetry, whatever!

" - Charles Baudelaire
(1821 - 1867), poet. [fardel = archaic noun:- a bundle or collection.]

'Desiderata' (Latin: 'Things Desired')

...

...Keep interested in your own career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.

...

" - Max Ehrmann
(1872 – 1945) American writer, poet, and attorney from Terre Haute, Indiana, widely known for his 1927 prose poem 'Desiderata' (Latin: 'Things Desired'). He often wrote on spiritual themes. [In 1956, the Reverend Frederick Kates, rector of Saint Paul's Church in Baltimore, Maryland, included 'Desiderata' in a compilation of devotional materials for his congregation. The compilation included the church's foundation date: 'Old Saint Paul's Church, Baltimore A.D. 1692'. Consequently, the date of the text's authorship was (and still is) widely mistaken as 1692, the year of the church's foundation. Refer http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Desiderata ]

"[Poem: about the joys of working and making a contribution to meeting the needs of humankind.]

'It's Simply Great'

It's great to be alive, and be -
A part of all that's going on;
To live and work and feel and see -
Life lived each day from early dawn;
To rise and with the morning light -
Go forth until the hours grow late,
Then joyously return at night -
And rest from honest toil - it's great!

It's great to be a living part -
Of all the surging world alive,
And lend a hand in field and mart, -
A worker in this human hive;
To live and earn and dare to do, -
Nor ever shirk or deviate
From course or purpose we pursue! -
Until the goal is won - it's great!

It's great to realize that we -
Are of a latent power possessed
To be what we are willed to be, -
And equal unto any test;
That of ourselves we may achieve -
To worthy deeds and high estate,
If we but in our powers believe -
It can and will be done - it's great!

It's great and wonderful to know -
That all we have to do is do,
That if we will to grow we'll grow, -
And reach the mark we have to view;
To know that we're a vital part -
Of all that is, nor hesitate
With all of skill and mind and heart -
To work and win - it's simply great!

"[Poem: about being patient and persistent in your search for love, whether for a partner, vocation-career or passionate avocation-hobby]

'Hungering Hearts'

Some hearts go hungering thro' the world
And never find the love they seek.
Some lips with pride or scorn are curled
To hide the pain they may not speak.
The eyes may flash, the mouth may smile -
And yet beneath them all the while
The hungering heart is pining still.

For them does life's dull desert hold
No fountain's shade, no gardens fair,
Nor gush of waters clear and cold,
But sandy reaches wide and bare.
The foot may fail, the soul may faint,
And weigh to earth the weary frame,
Yet still they make no weak complaint
And speak no word of grief or blame.

O eager eyes, which gaze afar,
O arms which clasp the empty air,
Not all unmarked your sorrows are,
Not all unpitied your despair.
Smile, patient lips, so proudly dumb -
Have Faith! Before life's tent is furled
Your recompense shall come,
O hearts that hunger through the world!

"[Poem: about individualism and living up to your full, unique potential, especially regarding your vocation or career]

'Be the Best of Whatever You Are'

If you can't be a pine on the top of the hill,
Be a scrub in the valley — but be
The best little scrub by the side of the rill;
Be a bush if you can't be a tree.

If you can't be a bush be a bit of the grass,
And some highway happier make;
If you can't be a muskie then just be a bass —
But the liveliest bass in the lake!

We can't all be captains, we've got to be crew,
There's something for all of us here,
There's big work to do, and there's lesser to do,
And the task you must do is the near.

If you can't be a highway then just be a trail,
If you can't be the sun be a star;
It isn't by size that you win or you fail —
Be the best of whatever you are!

"[Poem: about giving your best at work - not resenting the boss or shirking any work - because in the long run you are 'self-employed and selling your services' and therefore the person you hurt most is yourself, through lost appreciation, promotions, income, learning, personal growth, self-satisfaction, etc.]

'Who Is Your Boss?'

'I work for someone else,' he said;
'I have no chance to get ahead.
At night I leave the job behind;
At morn I face the same old grind.
And everything I do by day
Just brings to me the same old pay.
While I am here I cannot see
The semblance of a chance for me.'

I asked another how he viewed
The occupation he pursued.
'It's dull and dreary toil,' said he,
'And brings but small reward to me.
My boss gets all the profits fine
That I believe are rightly mine.
My life's monotonously grim
Because I'm forced to work for him.'

I stopped a third young man to ask
His attitude towards his task.
A cheerful smile lit up his face;
'I shan't be always in this place,'
He said, 'because some distant day
A better job will come my way.'
'Your boss?' I asked, and answered he:
'I'm going to make him notice me.'

'He pays me wages and in turn
That money I am here to earn,
But I don't work for him alone;
Allegiance to myself I own.
I do not do my best because
It gets me favors or applause --
I work for him, but I can see
That actually I work for me.

'It looks like business good to me
The best clerk on the staff to be.
If customers approve my style
And like my manner and my smile
I help the firm to get the pelf,
But what is more I help myself.
From one big thought I'm never free:
That every day I work for me.'

Oh, youth, thought I, you're bound to climb
The ladder of success in time.
Too many self-impose the cross
Of daily working for a boss,
Forgetting that in failing him
It is their own stars that they dim.
And when real service they refuse
They are the ones who really lose.

'Discovery'

I wished to shirk my task one day:
I much preferred some pleasant play.
But when the work I'd once begun,
'Twas full of interest, joy and fun.

The dust removed from off my books
Brought happy thoughts and cheerful looks.
Weeds, in the garden, put to rout,
Made beauty blossom round about.

Why use my time and strength and skill
In hard-wrought play, to serve me ill?
Why from sure pleasure should I shirk,
Since there is play in pleasant work?

'To One Who Sighed'

You cannot sing? Well, others can.
You do not dance? but others do.
And ever since the world began
There have been certain folk like you
Who cannot dance, and cannot sing,
Nor weave a play nor write a book.

But you can sew? Most anything?
And are quite expert as a cook?
And you can draw a little bit,
Amuse your friends with pen and ink?
You make folk laugh - this you admit.
You have a lot of gifts, I think.

Oh, foolish one, to sigh and fret
Because you're not as some folk are.
Suppose a plant, of mignonette
Withered because 'twas not a star!
Be what you are, dear girl, with pride.
Accept your limits with good grace;

The world is varied, very wide;
For each of us there is a place.
Within your sphere be quite content,
Be proud of work that is your own,
And to life's complex instrument
With sweetness add your mite of tone.

" - Wilhelmina Stitch
(1888-1936) Wilhelmina Stich is the pseudonym of Ruth Jacobs Cohen Collie. She was a writer, lecturer and poet - called 'The Poem A Day Lady'. Born at Cambridgeshire, England in 1888, daughter of I. W. Jacobs, she married E. Arakie Cohen while he was visiting England and returned with him to Winnipeg, the capital and largest city of the province of Manitoba, Canada. They had one son, Ralph. After her husband’s death in 1919, she was forced to seek employment to support herself and her son. Her friends encouraged her to submit her writing for publication, which led to a successful career as a writer which continued to the time of her death. Writing under the pen names 'Sheila Rand' or 'Wilhelmina Stitch', she had poetry and stories published in the Winnipeg Tribune and the Winnipeg Telegram. In time, she became, in the words an obituary, 'one of the best-known women writers in the British Empire'. She later remarried to Scottish physician Frank K. Collie and moved with him to London, England where she died on 6 March 1936. [refer http://www.mhs.mb.ca/docs/people/collie_rjc.shtml and http://content.lib.sfu.ca/cdm/ref/collection/ceww/id/254 ]

'Business'

'How is business?' asks the young man of the Spirit of the Years;
'Tell me of the modern output from the factories of fate,
And what jobs are waiting for me, waiting for me and my peers.
What's the outlook? What's the prospect? Are the wages small or great?'
'Business growing, more men needed,' says the Spirit of the Years,
'Jobs are waiting for right workmen, -- and I hope you are the men, --
Grand hard work and ample wages, work piled up in great arrears --
'Don't see any job particular?' Listen, and I'll tell you then.

'There are commonwealths to govern, there are senates to be swayed,
There are new states still undreamed of to be founded,
New empires in far oceans to be moulded -- who's afraid? --
And a couple polar oceans to be sounded.
Come on, ye jolly empire-builders, here is work for you to do,
And we don't propose to get along without it.
Here's the little job of building this old planet over new,
And it's time to do the business. Get about it.

'Get to work, ye world-repairers. Steel the age and guide the years,
Shame the antique men with bigness of your own;
Grow ye larger men than Plutarch's and the old long-whiskered seers;
Show the world a million kings without a throne.
'What's your business?' Empire-building, founding hierarchies for the soul,
Principalities and powers for the mind,
Bringing ever-narrowing chaos under cosmical control,
Building highways through its marsh-lands for mankind.

'Sow the lonely plains with cities; thread the flowerless land with streams;
Go to thinking thoughts unthought-of, following where your genius leads,
Seeing visions, hearing voices, following stars, and dreaming dreams,
And then bid your dreams and visions bloom and flower into deeds.
'What's your business?' Shaping eras, making epochs, building States,
Wakening slumbering rebellions in the soul,
Leading men and founding systems, grappling with the elder fates
Till the younger fates shall greaten and assume the old control.

''Business rushing?' Fairly lively. There's a world to clean and sweep,
Cluttered up with wars and armies; 'tis your work to brush 'em out;
Bid the fierce clinch-fisted nations clasp their hands across the deep;
Wipe the tired world of armies; 'tis a fair day's work no doubt.
'Business rushing?' Something doing. You've a contract on your hands
To wipe out the world's distinctions, -- country, color, caste, and birth, --
And to make one human family of a thousand alien lands,
Nourishing a billion brothers with no foreigner on earth.

'Have you learned yet,' says the Zeitgeist, 'the old secret of the soul?
Make the sleepy sphinx give answer, for her riddle's long unguessed.
Tell the riddle; clear the mystery; bid the midnight dark uproll;
Let the thought with which the ages long have travailed be expressd.
Go and find the Northwest Passage through the far seas of the mind, --
There, where man and God are mingled in the darkness, go and learn.
Sail forth on that bournless ocean, shrouded, chartless, undefined:
Pluck its mystery from that darkness; pluck its mystery and return.

''What's your business?' Finding out things that no other man could find, --
Things concealed by jealous Nature under locks, behind the bars;
Building paved and guttered highways for the onward march of mind
Through the spaces 'twixt the planets to the secrets of the stars.
'What's your business?' Think like Plato, -- he did not exhaust all thought;
Preach like Savonarola; rule like Alfred; do not shirk;
Paint like Raphael and Titian; build like Angelo -- why not?
Sing like Shakespeare. 'How is business?' Rather lively. Get to work!'

" - Sam Walter Foss
(1858 - 1911) American librarian and poet.

"[Poem: about what you choose to do with your life, namely help or hinder others now and in the future, for example with your vocation or career]

'A Bag of Tools'

Isn’t it strange
That princes and kings,
And clowns that caper
In sawdust rings,
And common people
Like you and me
Are builders for eternity?

Each is given
A bag of tools,
A shapeless mass,
A book of rules.
And each must make –
Ere life is flown
A stumbling block
Or a steppingstone

"[Poem: about vocation and career - finding and doing the work you are ideally suited for]

'Work'

Let me but do my work from day to day,
In field or forest, at the desk or loom,
In roaring market-place, or tranquil room;
Let me but find it in my heart to say,
When vagrant wishes beckon me astray -
'This is my work; my blessing, not my doom;
Of all who live, I am the one by whom
This work can best be done, in the right way.'
Then shall I see it not too great, nor small,
To suit my spirit and to prove my powers;
Then shall I cheerful greet the laboring hours,
And cheerful turn, when the long shadows fall
At eventide, to play and love and rest,
Because I know for me my work is best.

[Quote No.54270] Need Area: Work > General
"[A story - with a few messages for business and life:] ‘Choose a Way to Win the Race’ Once upon a time a tortoise and a hare had an argument about who was faster. They decided to settle the argument with a race. They agreed on a route and started off the race. The hare shot ahead and ran briskly for some time. Then seeing that he was far ahead of the tortoise, he thought he'd sit under a tree for some time and relax before continuing the race. He sat under the tree and soon fell asleep. The tortoise plodding on overtook him and soon finished the race, emerging as the undisputed champ. The hare woke up and realized that he'd lost the race. The moral of the story is that slow and steady wins the race. This is the version of the story that we've all grown up with. But then recently, someone told me a more interesting version of this story. It continues. The hare was disappointed at losing the race and he did some Defect Prevention (Root Cause Analysis). He realized that he'd lost the race only because he had been overconfident, careless and lax. If he had not taken things for granted, there's no way the tortoise could have beaten him. So he challenged the tortoise to another race. The tortoise agreed. This time, the hare went all out and ran without stopping from start to finish. He won by several miles. The moral of the story, Fast and Consistent will always beat the slow and steady. If you have two people in your organisation, one slow, methodical and reliable, and the other fast and still reliable at what he does, the fast and reliable chap will consistently climb the organizational ladder faster than the slow, methodical chap. It's good to be slow and steady; but it's better to be fast and reliable. But the story doesn't end here. The tortoise did some thinking this time, and realized that there's no way he can beat the hare in a race the way it was currently formatted. He thought for a while, and then challenged the hare to another race, but on a slightly different route. The hare agreed. They started off. In keeping with his self-made commitment to be consistently fast, the hare took off and ran at top speed until he came to a broad river. The finishing line was a couple of kilometers on the other side of the river. The hare sat there wondering what to do. In the meantime the tortoise trundled along, got into the river, swam to the opposite bank, continued walking and finished the race. The moral of the story; First identify your core competency and then change the playing field to suit your core competency. In an organization, if you are a good speaker, make sure you create opportunities to give presentations that enable the senior management to notice you. If your strength is analysis, make sure you do some sort of research, make a report and send it upstairs. Working to your strengths will not only get you noticed but will also create opportunities for growth and advancement. The story still hasn't ended. The hare and the tortoise, by this time, had become pretty good friends and they did some thinking together. Both realized that the last race could have been run much better. So they decided to do the last race again, but to run as a team this time. They started off, and this time the hare carried the tortoise till the riverbank. There, the tortoise took over and swam across with the hare on his back. On the opposite bank, the hare again carried the tortoise and they reached the finishing line together. They both felt a greater sense of satisfaction than they'd felt earlier. The moral of the story; It's good to be individually brilliant and to have strong core competencies; but unless you're able to work in a team and harness each other's core competencies, you'll always perform below par because there will always be situations at which you'll do poorly and someone else does well. Teamwork is mainly about situational leadership, letting the person with the relevant core competency for a situation take leadership. There are more lessons to be learnt from this story. Note that neither the hare nor the tortoise gave up after failures. The hare decided to work harder and put in more effort after his failure. The tortoise changed his strategy because he was already working as hard as he could. In life, when faced with failure, sometimes it is appropriate to work harder and put in more effort. Sometimes it is appropriate to change strategy and try something different. And sometimes it is appropriate to do both. The hare and the tortoise also learnt another vital lesson. When we stop competing against a rival and instead start competing against the situation, we perform far better. When Roberto Goizueta took over as CEO of Coca-Cola in the1980s, he was faced with intense competition from Pepsi that was eating into Coke's growth. His executives were Pepsi-focused and intent on increasing market share 0.1 per cent a time. Goizueta decided to stop competing against Pepsi and instead compete against the situation of 0.1 per cent growth. He asked his executives what was the average fluid intake of an American per day? The answer was 14 ounces. What was Coke’s share of that? Two ounces, Goizueta said Coke needed a larger share of that market. The competition wasn't Pepsi. It was the water, tea, coffee, milk and fruit juices that went into the remaining 12 ounces. The public should reach for a Coke whenever they felt like drinking something. To this end, Coke put up vending machines at every street corner. Sales took a quantum jump and Pepsi has never quite caught up since. To sum up, the story of the hare and tortoise teaches us many things. Chief among them are that fast and consistent will always beat slow and steady; work to your competencies; pooling resources and working as a team will always beat individual performers; never give up when faced with failure; and finally, compete against the situation. Not against a rival." - Unknown

"[A story - with a message about the importance of taking regular breaks and occasional vacations:] 'The Woodcutter' Once upon a time a very strong woodcutter asked for a job with a timber merchant and got it. The pay was really good and so were the work conditions. For that reason, the woodcutter was determined to do his best. His boss gave him an axe and showed him the area where he was supposed to work. The first day, the woodcutter cut down 18 trees. 'Congratulations,' the boss said. 'Go on that way!' 'Very motivated by the boss's words, the woodcutter tried harder the next day, but he only could cut down 15 trees. The third day he tried even harder, but he only could cut down 10 trees. Day after day he was cutting down less and less trees. 'I must be losing my strength', the woodcutter thought. He went to the boss and apologized, saying that he could not understand what was going on. 'When was the last time you sharpened your axe?' the boss asked. 'Sharpen? I had no time to sharpen my axe. I have been very busy trying to cut trees ...As he was saying this he realized what the boss meant and saw the error and how he could get back to doing well." - Unknown

"[A story - with a message about the importance of taking regular breaks and occasional vacations:] 'The Two Lumberjacks' It was the annual lumberjack competition and the final was between an older, experienced lumberjack and a younger, stronger lumberjack. The rule of the competition was quite simply who could fell the most trees in a day was the winner. The younger lumberjack was full of enthusiasm and went off into the wood and set to work straight away. He worked all through the day and all through the night. As he worked, he could hear the older lumberjack working in another part of the forest and he felt more and more confident with every tree he felled that he would win. At regular intervals throughout the day, the noise of trees being felled coming from the other part of the forest would stop. The younger lumberjack took heart from this, knowing that this meant the older lumberjack was taking a rest, whereas he could use his superior youth and strength and stamina to keep going. At the end of the competition, the younger lumberjack felt confident he had won. He looked in front of him at the piles of felled trees that were the result of his superhuman effort. At the medal ceremony, he stood on the podium confident and expecting to be awarded the prize of champion lumberjack. Next to him stood the older lumberjack who looked surprisingly less exhausted than he felt. When the results were read out, he was devastated to hear that the older lumberjack had chopped down significantly more trees than he had. He turned to the older lumber jack and said: ‘How can this be? I heard you take a rest every hour and I worked continuously through the night. What's more, I am stronger and fitter than you old man’. The older lumberjack turned to him and said: ‘Every hour, I took a break to rest and sharpen my saw!’ " - Unknown

"[A true story - with a message about picking a vocation and career:] 'Virtually No Competition' - While professional soccer is still struggling to find a firm foothold in the United States, in the 1970s the North American Soccer League marked the brave first attempt to introduce the game to American sports fans. While most teams had only limited success at best, one did manage to break through to genuine mainstream popularity - the New York Cosmos. It was the brainchild of Steve Ross, a passionate soccer fan who was also a major executive at Warner Communications. Max Ross told his son Steve:] In life there are those who work all day, those who dream all day, and those who spend an hour dreaming before setting to work to fulfil those dreams. Go into the third category because there's virtually no competition." - Max Ross
Father of the eventual CEO of Time Warner, Steve Ross. Quoted in ‘Once In A Lifetime - The Extraordinary Story Of The New York Cosmos’ by Gavin Newsham. Max Ross was a builder ruined in the stock market crash of 1929, who spent the Depression working as an oil burner salesman and so had given a lot of thought about how to advise his son on how to find fulfilment and success.

"[A story - with a message about the importance of taking breaks and vacations to relax and recreate:-] 'Relaxation' - They say that Saint John the Apostle liked to play with his pet sparrow from time to time. One day a hunter came to visit him and was surprised to see such a famous man playing. He surely could and should be making better use of his time. So he asked him, ‘Why do you waste your time playing? Why devote so much attention to something as useless as a sparrow?’ Saint John looked at him in surprise and asked: ‘Why is the string on your bow not tight?’ ‘Oh, you can't keep it tight all the time,’ the hunter explained, ‘otherwise it loses its tension and becomes useless for shooting arrows.’ So Saint John told him in return: ‘My friend, just as you always release the tension on your bowstring, so you must release the tension inside of you and relax. If I don't relax and just play, I have no strength for any great undertaking. I don't even have the strength to do what I have to and what is necessary.’" - Unknown

"[A true story - with a message about picking something for your career which is a vocation, or in other words something you are passionate about and can persist at even through failure, criticism and disappointment:] 'He never gave up!' When he was a little boy his uncle called him 'Sparky', after a comic-strip horse named Spark Plug. School was all but impossible for Sparky. He failed every subject in the eighth grade. He flunked physics in high school, getting a grade of zero. He also flunked Latin, algebra and English. And his record in sports wasn’t any better. Though he did manage to make the school’s golf team, he promptly lost the only important match of the season. Oh, there was a consolation match; he lost that too. Throughout his youth, Sparky was awkward socially. It wasn’t that the other students disliked him; it’s just that no one really cared all that much. In fact, Sparky was astonished if a classmate ever said hello to him outside of school hours. There’s no way to tell how he might have done at dating. He never once asked a girl out in high school. He was too afraid of being turned down... or perhaps laughed at. Sparky was a loser. He, his classmates... everyone knew it. So he learned to live with it. He made up his mind early that if things were meant to work out, they would. Otherwise he would content himself with what appeared to be his inevitable mediocrity. One thing WAS important to Sparky, however — drawing. He was proud of his artwork. No one else appreciated it. But that didn’t seem to matter to him. In his senior year of high school, he submitted some cartoons to the the yearbook. The editors rejected the concept. Despite this brush-off, Sparky was convinced of his ability. He even decided to become an artist. So, after completing high school, Sparky wrote Walt Disney Studios. They asked for samples of his artwork. Despite careful preparation, it too was rejected. One more confirmation that he was a loser. But Sparky still didn’t give up. Instead, he decided to tell his own life’s story in cartoons. The main character would be a little boy who symbolized the perpetual loser and chronic underachiever. You know him well. Because Sparky’s cartoon character went on to become a cultural phenomenon of sorts. People readily identified with this 'lovable loser.' He reminded people of the painful and embarrassing moments from their own past, of their pain and their shared humanity. The character soon became famous worldwide: 'Charlie Brown.' And Sparky, the boy whose many failures never kept him from trying, whose work was rejected again and again,... is the highly successful cartoonist Charles Schultz. His cartoon strip, 'Peanuts,' continues to inspire books, T-shirts and Christmas specials, reminding us, as someone once commented, that life somehow finds a way for all of us, even the losers. Sparky’s story reminds us of a very important principle in life. We all face difficulty and discouragement from time to time. We also have a choice in how we handle it. If we’re persistent...who knows what can happen? We may end up with an insight and an ability to inspire that comes only through hardship...Some winners just take longer to develop! [About Charles Schulz’s cartoon:- Peanuts is a syndicated daily and Sunday American comic strip written and illustrated by Charles M. Schulz, which ran from October 2, 1950, to February 13, 2000, continuing in reruns afterward. The strip is the most popular and influential in the history of the comic strip, with 17,897 strips published in all, making it 'arguably the longest story ever told by one human being', according to Robert Thompson of Syracuse University. At its peak, Peanuts ran in over 2,600 newspapers, with a readership of 355 million in 75 countries, and was translated into 21 languages.]" - CAPT J. David Atwater, CHC, USN
