Experience is the mistake that you made yesterday.

And being a professional doesn't mean that you're any good at what you're doing, it only means that you're paid to do it.

I got this very same quote (without proper citing) in a fortune cookie a few weeks ago. I thought it was good enough to tape to the refrigerator right above the water dispenser, the only thing on the fridge. The kids have moved it multiple times and it seems to have found a resting place on the coffee maker.

Never time to do it right the first time.....but always time to do it twice.

Motto amongst the employees of a company I worked for in the 90s

My dad always told me when I was growing up in the 80’s and early 90’s...

“If you ever get married, don’t marry a woman.”


I thought it was a joke back then, but now I see he may have just been ahead of his time.
