Goals

Would the boy you were be proud of the man you are?

If you don’t know where you’re going, you will probably end up somewhere else.

Laurence J. Peter (16 September 1919 –1990) the Canadian educator and author who coined the term ‘hierarchiology’ as the social science concerned with the basic principles of hierarchically organised systems in human society (see: Incompetence)

Il ragazzo che una volta eri sarebbe orgoglioso dell’uomo che ora sei?

Se non sai dove stai andando, probabilmente finirai da qualche altra parte.

    1. That’s very true my husband long passed away now he said you have to take your own life into your hands when people heard that they thought he was saying you have to kill yourself but know once you can escape from sometimes a bad environment a bad home like I had as a child if you managed to escape with the help of someone else preferably older than you like was in my case and if you can finally rest and think your thoughts out pray to God listen to God’s wisdom write down on a piece of paper with a pen or pencil what’s important to you what do I like to do there’s a little saying that says do what you love and the money will follow and in many cases that’s happened in Show Business and Furniture building and clothes designing when I was young girl I took a course in writing and they said I was very good when I submitted my papers but we didn’t have the money to help me get through it we have the money for everything else but we didn’t have the money for what I wanted and I’ve always been sorry years later I tried to take a course in animal grooming I love all animals but again the money issue and I’d let it go when I married I had no working skills whatsoever and my husband said get out and get a job I was absolutely terrified but I tried it somehow it didn’t work out but the skills that God gave us we have to learn to reel it in accentuated learn and as we get older if we don’t do what our heart tells us then we’re always sorry always I know I’m sorry that I didn’t follow my dreams .

      1. Sometimes life stinks not always good to listen to people sometimes it’s best to follow your own heart I wish I did many times when I became a nurse it followed after jury duty I was a foreman foreperson. On a very interesting case I walked in a frightened 47 year old woman I walked out a celebrity all the cameras on me the interviewers the bomb scares at the courthouse the deputies walking with me with her guns . of course my husband was there ,very well-dressed took the Limelight away from me but that’s okay .. right after that I liked being called mrs. Marinucci I liked the respect so I went back to school and became a nurse gave my husband every paycheck just handed it to him . I worked double shifts worked 3 jobs a day I gave him all the money but later my last patient,, my last client was a man and old Bachelor with 7 things wrong with him . my good friend Harry, his name is engraved on my Tombstone when I die my wonderful friend my great friend Harry I listen to Harry .. once Harry knew that he could trust me I wasn’t there to kill him I was there to save him he taught me much much. I GAINED SO MUCH & I LOST SO MUCH . SOMEDAY MAYBE I WILL WRITE ABOUT MY WONDERFUL BEAUTIFUL SAINTLY HARRY ,GENE SAVED ME AS A YOUNG GIRL AND GOD SENT ME TO A SICK AND DIEING OLD MAN YES , DOCTORS GAVE HIM 2 MONTHS TO LIVE BUT. WE HAD OVER 3 YEARS . I CAME TO SAVE THIS MAN AND IN RETURN HE SAVED ME 💖🙏

  1. I just realised this is absolutely true. I have seen situations like these. I have seen good employees turning into bad ones after a certain amount of time. And to some extent people have begun accepting this principle as one of the features of management hierarchy rather than it’s flaw. Since they don’t see it as a flaw they don’t feel like changing it.

  2. When I was young I worked really hard – very long hours, a lot of responsibility – and I was rewarded with tenure at a fairly young age. And the thought of being in that job forever made me realise just how little I actually enjoyed it, and I resigned not long after. So while I like that second quote, I think there is a danger in being focussed on a single goal – you might not like it when you get there.
    So I don’t think the girl I was would be proud of the woman I am. But the woman I am wouldn’t be very proud to be the woman that girl wanted to be either…

  3. I don’t know why but your comment kind of reminded me of Elvis Presley ,, that young man with his mama that he loved so much the big aspirations that he had for his musical career. what kind of man he was and then later with drugs prescription drugs ,, drugs given by doctors drugs to make him go on with the show too many people were living off of him people that didn’t want to notice what was happening to him they’re on the payroll they were friends they were family . the guy was disintegrating in front of everyone but if he could get out of that stupor get out of that pain get out of that sweat that was burning into his eyes .. if you could go back to that young guy what 19 20 years old maybe he would have preferred to be a truck driver had a wife and a couple of kids maybe Saturday night playing the local bar will

    1. Who can tell? If he could have gone back, but with the experience gained, perhaps he would have preferred to continue to be a truck driver.
