Back to Kindergarten

Not much news since Thursday's post.
I wasn't feeling well yesterday and sitting here at the computer was bothersome. Not sure if I've re-cooped yet. Maybe a big bowl of "Wheaties" cereal and a banana would help me out. After all, it is The Breakfast of Champions, right?

*****

I did receive quite a few referral comm's from 10DollarsWonder in the last two days. Thanks you guys!!!
And no, I'm not cycling every day either.

You know ... if folks would just stop worrying about this program and continue to play the game, everything should work out fine.

Which brings to mind what the WP/DM Admin recently did.
Because of one negative comment made by one person to another (in private) ... they canceled that persons account.
So they themselves initiated the negative, which caused a negative chain reaction, which resulted in their own program plummeting ... which they may never recover from.

So you see, what goes around comes around.
Best to keep your thoughts (and actions) positive if you wish for a positive outcome.

After all, aren't we humans supposed to be the smartest creatures on earth?


ALL I REALLY NEED TO KNOW I LEARNED IN KINDERGARTEN

(a guide for Global Leadership)

All I really need to know about how to live and what to do and how to be I learned in kindergarten. Wisdom was not at the top of the graduate school mountain, but there in the sand pile at school.

These are the things I learned:
  • Share everything.
  • Play fair.
  • Don't hit people.
  • Put things back where you found them.
  • Clean up your own mess.
  • Don't take things that aren't yours.
  • Say you're sorry when you hurt somebody.
  • Wash your hands before you eat.
  • Flush.
  • Warm cookies and cold milk are good for you.
  • Live a balanced life - learn some and think some and draw and paint and sing and dance and play and work every day some.
  • Take a nap every afternoon.
  • When you go out in the world, watch out for traffic, hold hands and stick together.
  • Be aware of wonder. Remember the little seed in the Styrofoam cup: the roots go down and the plant goes up and nobody really knows how or why, but we are all like that.
  • Goldfish and hamsters and white mice and even the little seed in the Styrofoam cup - they all die. So do we.
  • And then remember the Dick-and-Jane books and the first word you learned - the biggest word of all - LOOK.

Everything you need to know is in there somewhere. The Golden Rule and love and basic sanitation. Ecology and politics and equality and sane living.

Take any one of those items and extrapolate it into sophisticated adult terms and apply it to your family life or your work or government or your world and it holds true and clear and firm. Think what a better world it would be if we all - the whole world - had cookies and milk at about 3 o'clock in the afternoon and then lay down with our blankies for a nap. Or if all governments had as a basic policy to always put things back where they found them and to clean up their own mess.

And it is still true, no matter how old you are, when you go out in the world, it is best to hold hands and stick together.

Hear, hear...such wisdom, and yet so easy to understand! Just plain old common decency.
I just got off work at a retail business...I spent all of my day putting away the toys that are just strewn about as if "the maid will pick it up, don't worry..."

Ah, well, just keep swimming, just keep swimming...

And Smile!!!!

Hope you have a wonderful day, blondie.

Hey Blondie...Good to have you back with us. I enjoyed reading the post today and even though I had seen this before, I think it bears repeating and remembering.

Hope you get to feeling better soon, and I'll keep the coffee hot for ya.

Hi Cat, and Thanks!
Funny about those toys eh?
Guess those kids need to learn the kindergarten stuff too, lol

Hey Jim,
Yeah, can't hurt to repeat the rules once in a while. Since a few folks forget them on occasion. Myself included, nobody's perfect right?

Thanks you two :))
Am working on that smile now!

It always amazes me when people post in a public forum negative comments about a program they have invested some money. It can NEVER help a program nor encourage others to invest. 10DW has done quite well for me and I hope will continue to do so. No I have not cycled as before but continue to cycle.

Hey Patrick,
No news yet. Trying to find out.
Hang in there.

Anonymous,
Nice comments, thanks for that!
And yes, it always amazes me too when those folks bite the hand that feeds them.

Take care!

Good good words - to live by !!
Thanks everyone for their comments. It's like we are holding hands.

If we wouldn´t be allowed to come up with constructive criticism, every scam would have full freedom on the net.We should avoid too negative comments, but every networker must be aware of the dangers too.I won´t join DollarMonster there after some reviews I´ve read.We must be allowed to have opinions.

Mattias said...

But as I have said earlier, I really like 10DollarsW.

Hi blondie, nice posts!

I finally had enough energy to at least add one entry to my own blog, it's about Work as Play.

Hi Myrna, Mattias and js ...

Yes, constructive criticism is always welcome, especially when it saves others from losing money.

Glad to see you on your way back js! Hope you're feeling better.
