Friday Focus: The People Who Get Up

"People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are. I don't believe in circumstances. The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and, if they can't find them, make them."

~ George Bernard Shaw

And there you go.

Happy Friday!

Shaw's always good for a quote. My favorite?

Woman comes up to Shaw, says, "Mr. Shaw, do you know that 'sugar' is the only word in the English language spelled S-U but pronounced 'SH'?"

"Sure, I know that," he says.

Glad you guys liked it :)

Travener, I will not tell you how many times I read that before I finally *got* it. Okay. You pulled my arm. Three. But just so you know, when I actually HAD coffee going through me, I got it right away. ;)

Rather than complaining look for opportunities. I appreciate this quote.
