Happiness and success?


1. Marry the right person. This one decision will determine 90% of your happiness or misery. (Or stay unmarried if you wish :-)
2. Work at something you enjoy and that's worthy of your time and talent.
3. Give people more than they expect and do it cheerfully.
4. Become the most positive and enthusiastic person you know.
5. Be forgiving of yourself and others.
6. Be generous.
7. Have a grateful heart.
8. Persistence, persistence, persistence.
9. Discipline yourself to save money on even the most modest salary.
10. Treat everyone you meet like you want to be treated.
11. Commit yourself to constant improvement.
12. Commit yourself to quality.
13. Understand that happiness is not based on possessions, power or prestige, but on relationships with people you love and respect.
14. Be loyal.
15. Be honest.
16. Be a self-starter.
17. Be decisive even if it means you'll sometimes be wrong.
18. Stop blaming others. Take responsibility for every area of your life.
19. Be bold and courageous. When you look back on your life, you'll regret the things you didn't do more than the ones you did.
20. Take good care of those you love.
21. Don't do anything that wouldn't make your Mom proud.

    Thoughts of change:

    - Go on that trip. Don't postpone it.
    - Say those words. Don't let the moment pass.
    - Do what you have to, even at society's scorn.
    - Write poetry.

    - Love deeply.
    - Walk barefoot.
    - Dance with wild abandon.
    - Cry at the movies.
    - Take care of yourself. Don't wait for someone to take care of you.

    Go for the win.

    The origins of punctuation marks we use in everyday life:


    Question Mark ?
    Origin: When early scholars wrote in Latin, they would place the word questio – meaning “question” – at the end of a sentence to indicate a query. To conserve valuable space, writing it was soon shortened to qo, which caused another problem – readers might mistake it for the ending of a word. So they squashed the letters into a symbol: a lowercased q on top of an o. Over time the o shrank to a dot and the q to a squiggle, giving us our current question mark.

    Exclamation Point !
    Origin: Like the question mark, the exclamation point was invented by stacking letters. The mark comes from the Latin word io, meaning “exclamation of joy.” Written vertically, with the i above the o, it forms the exclamation point we use today.

    Equal Sign =
    Origin: Invented by Welsh mathematician Robert Recorde in 1557, with this rationale: “I will settle as I doe often in woorke use, a paire of paralleles, or Gmowe [i.e., twin] lines of one length, thus : , bicause noe 2 thynges, can be more equalle.” His equal signs were about five times as long as the current ones, and it took more than a century for his sign to be accepted over its rival: a strange curly symbol invented by Descartes.

    Ampersand &
    Origin: This symbol is stylized et, Latin for “and.” Although it was invented by the Roman scribe Marcus Tullius Tiro in the first century B.C., it didn’t get its strange name until centuries later. In the early 1800s, schoolchildren learned this symbol as the 27th letter of the alphabet: X, Y, Z, &. But the symbol had no name. So, they ended their ABCs with “and, per se, and” meaning “&, which means ‘and.’” This phrase was slurred into one garbled word that eventually caught on with everyone: ampersand.

    Octothorpe #
    Origin: The odd name for this ancient sign for numbering derives from thorpe, the Old Norse word for a village or farm that is often seen in British placenames. The symbol was originally used in mapmaking, representing a village surrounded by eight fields, so it was named the octothorp.

    This comes from a book named "Uncle John's Supremely Satisfying Bathroom Reader" http://www.neatorama.com/2007/07/09/the-origin-of-everyday-punctuation-marks/

    What if men made the rules for relationships? :-) - Anything we said six or eight months ago is inadmissible in an argument. All comments become null and void after seven days.

    - If you don't want to dress like Victoria's Secret girls, don't expect us to act like soap opera guys.

    - If we say something that can be interpreted in two ways, and one of the ways makes you sad or angry, we meant the other way.

    - Let us ogle. If we don't look at other women how can we know how pretty you are?

    - Don't rub the lamp if you don't want the genie to come out.

    - Don't fake it. We'd rather be ineffective than deceived

    - You can either ask us to do something OR tell us how you want it done - not both.

    - Whenever possible, please say whatever you have to say during commercials.

    - Christopher Columbus didn't need directions and neither do we.

    - When we're turning the wheel and the car is nosing onto the off ramp, you saying "This is our exit" is not necessary.

    Happy 4th of July!

    All who celebrate:

    One flag, one land, one heart, one hand, One Nation evermore! 
    ~ Oliver Wendell Holmes

    America is much more than a geographical fact. It is a political and moral fact — the first community in which men set out in principle to institutionalize freedom, responsible government, and human equality. 
    ~ Adlai Stevenson

    In the truest sense, freedom cannot be bestowed; it must be achieved. 
    ~ Franklin D. Roosevelt

    Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom, must, like men, undergo the fatigue of supporting it.
    ~ Thomas Paine

    Top 9 Comments made by commentators at the 2004 Olympics

    Here are the top nine comments made by NBC sports commentators  during the Summer Olympics that they would like to take back:

    1. Weightlifting commentator: "This is Gregoriava from Bulgaria. I saw
    her snatch this morning during her warm up and it was amazing."

    2. Dressage commentator: "This is really a lovely horse and I speak
    from personal experience since I once mounted her mother."

    3. Paul Hamm, Gymnast: "I owe a lot to my parents, especially my mother
    and father."

    4. Boxing Analyst: "Sure there have been injuries, and even some deaths
    in boxing, but none of them really that serious."

    5. Softball announcer: "If history repeats itself, I should think we
    can expect the same thing again."

    6. Basketball analyst: "He dribbles a lot and the opposition doesn't
    like it. In fact you can see it all over their faces."

    7. At the rowing medal ceremony: "Ah, isn't that nice, the wife of the
    IOC president is hugging the cox of the British crew."

    8. Soccer commentator: "Julian Dicks is everywhere. It's like they've
    got eleven Dicks on the field."

    9. Tennis commentator: "One of the reasons Andy is playing so well is
    that, before the final round, his wife takes out his balls and kisses
    them... Oh my God, what have I just said?"

    Here are more excellent accidental jokes from sports commentators:

    Time zones on hovercard / profile / posts

    Dear +Google, I have a wish.

    I would really like if you integrated everyone's time zone into the profile and showed it on our hovercards and posts. It would make life very much easier for engaging with people from around the world.

    Planning meetings or business Hangouts would be more efficient.

    Also for us non North America dwellers it's not so clear, what time is 2 PM EST etc.
    GMT is used all over, wouldn't it be easier to use that instead?

    My time zone is GMT +2 or Helsinki, Finland time.

    http://wwp.greenwichmeantime.com/

    Shout out to +Vic Gundotra and +Google Developers

    ...or is there an app for it? :-)

    - Try to walk a mile in someone else's boots... Remember empathy.

    Be nice.

    My computer has Spartans...

    Customer: “Hi, my son says that I have Spartans on my laptop and I should bring it to you guys.”

    Tech Support: “…Ma’am? Spartans?”

    Customer: “Yes, I called my son at school and told him that screens keep popping up all the time, and he said that I have Spartans.”

    Me: “Oh! You mean Trojans! That’s a possibility; let me run this analyzer on your laptop real quick and we’ll see what’s going on.”

    Customer: “Young man, my son is in college and he says it has Spartans. You just stand here in a little uniform and make minimum wage. I think my son knows what he is talking about.”

    Tech Support: “You’re right ma’am. I was hoping to run a diagnostic and find out that it wasn’t Spartans, but just by looking at the login screen, I can tell that you probably have about 300 of the little guys running around.”

    Customer: “300?! Is that bad?”

    Tech Support: “It’s horrible. They cram themselves into a bottleneck and kill wave after wave of data, until there is a wall of dead programs blocking any more traffic through your computer.”

    Customer: “Oh, that just figures. I’m going to go buy a new computer.”

    Tech Support: “Ok, ma’am, I think that would be best.”

    Did you ever stop and wonder...
     
    Why the sun lightens our hair, but darkens our skin?

    Why women can't put on mascara with their mouth closed?

    Why toasters always have a setting so high that could burn the toast to a horrible crisp which no decent human being would eat?

    Why there a light in the fridge and not in the freezer?

    Why you don't ever see the headline: "Psychic Wins Lottery"?

    Why "abbreviated" is such a long word?

    Why Doctors call what they do "practice"?

    Why you have to click on "Start" to stop 'Windows'?

    Why lemon juice is made with artificial flavor, while dishwashing liquid is made with real lemons?

    Why there isn't mouse flavoured cat food?

    What to share in Google+?

    What I’ve enjoyed most in Google+ is the lack of status updates like ‘I had an omelet for brekkies’ or ‘I became Mayor of Thingummybob in Be-Square’.
    The standard of posts is very high, ranging from politics to religion, humor to science and all sorts of news.
    But the best bulletins to me are various opinions that the Plussers write on almost any theme possible.

    Don’t try to please anyone on Google+ but be yourself:

    Write about the things that interest you, share links and videos that you find amusing or intriguing. Post stuff with good content, as those posts people like to read. Google+ is what you make of it.

    The annoying side to sharing is someone posting or sharing too often. I don't mean posting even 20 posts per day when they are well spaced: Firing 5-10 posts one after another is not the best way to attract circlers.
    For instance,when sharing photos, please don’t inundate the stream by publishing several single pictures in separate posts at one go, but rather publish one album. If you want just your nearest and dearest to see the latest baby/dog/cat/holiday pics, use your own circles share or even +name to share with just certain persons.

    Let's keep signal to noise ratio balanced! :-)


    Sharing to Circles and Notifying

    Now here’s a hot potato of a subject! When you share something, please don’t notify anyone unless you know them personally and are sure that they don’t mind. +Michelle Marie even wrote a post about this. Try searching ‘Notify’ in Google+ and you’ll see what I mean.

    Many of you have asked about how to control who can send you notifications, so Google has rolled out an option in Google+ settings: “Who can notify you.” They really do their thing well, don’t they, and always listen to us!

    You can update your settings here: https://plus.google.com/settings/plus

    Different uses of Google+

    There are so many individual uses to this Circleverse of ours:
    Someone may be looking at the platform through professionalism and marketing, others are just having fun and being social.

    No-one is telling you how to use it:
    However, when well-meaning people give advice on different aspects in how you could use Google+, please respect their suggestions. That's what they are: Suggestions and examples.  Especially for those of you who'd like to grow your circles base.

    If you don't agree, that's fine. But please refrain from berating the poster and others who might welcome those tips.
    Some people might find the advice suited to their situation and needs.

    No one is forcing anyone to do anything on G+ against their will, so pass on if the advice is not for you.

    Let's keep G+ positive!
