Raining and forgot your umbrella? Simply tie a clear plastic bag over your head!
Go after that dream NOW. The quicker it fails miserably, the quicker you can get it out of your system.
Never judge someone until you've walked in their shoes. Then you can judge them and you have a new pair of shoes.
Sure, we all look to the successful people and their work habits in an attempt to gleam from them some nugget of knowledge that would allow us to mimic their achievements. But are these really the people who we should be emulating? Because as it turns out, some of their habits are pretty filthy. For example:

I think the problem began when ALL politics became national. Remember when people ran for city council to fix potholes and close the local dump? Now people run for school boards or for dog catcher on an “anti-Washington” platform. People are pestering me for contributions for candidates in other states that I can’t vote for. I think I remember when it started. In NYC, during a mayoral campaign (I think maybe it was Ed Koch’s first run), at a debate, the reporters starting asking the candidates what they thought about the situation in the Mideast. Which would be a great question if you were running for mayor of the Mideast. But none of them were. Plus you had the usual stuff happened, a local guy who did his job really well is prompted to run for national office. And guess what? What made you a great local problem solver has nothing to do with the way they’re running things in DC, so now you’re useless. Which, of course, led to the problem of local guys always running for local office with an eye toward national politics, so now my city councilmen are now more concerned with the situation in the Mideast than with local garbage pick-up. So, thanks National Parties for sucking the local out of local politics so that now I can’t get my pothole fixed or my dump closed.

"Really? What line of work are you in?"
"I'm a plate spinner."
"That’s a lot of tattoos you have there."
"So? What of it?"
"Well, if I had that many cats, everyone would assume I was crazy."
Well, with the success of “Frozen” (The Snow Princess) cementing the success of Disney’s CGI film "Tangled” (Repunzel), the company is certainly going to

How awkward, everyone is standing around waiting for the priest to leave. #LiveTweetingMass

Sarah Palin writes, "In a reflection of the sad state of affairs in Washington, one mainstream media newspaper even had to acknowledge, 'Who knows, maybe Ashton Kutcher was able to
do something America’s political leadership can’t do, which is to talk honestly
to America’s youth about the dignity of work.'" Sure, because Ashton Kutcher is successful at what he does.
