All good:

1. Constraints are empowering

2. Accept threats as resignations

3. Never follow; either leapfrog or stop

4. Diversity means survival

5. Don’t tolerate intolerance

6. Strategy and architecture are inseparable

7. Short and direct earns respect

8. Delaying the inevitable inevitably backfires

9. A re-org will never cure what ails you

10. You needn’t be an #%@hole to get things done

Really no way to describe this, but you sort of have to go listen to some of these “singing telegrams delivered over the phone from …. singers in India.”

Check out for instance the Congratulations song:

congratulations_sample_song

Here are the … uh … lyrics:

“Congrats / You Deserve a Cookie”

Congrats!
Hats off to you
You deserve a cookie
Okay… Maybe two!

Fresh baked cookies!
Smell those cookies
Yummy cookies
Fresh baked cookies

Congrats!
A pat on your back
But you won’t get two cookies
You deserve the whole batch

Fresh baked cookies!
Smell those cookies
Yummy cookies
Fresh baked cookies… For you!

So much more where that came from:

New Baby

Mother’s Day

While my mother does indeed have mad skills, I can’t imagine anyone sending this to their mother unless they hated their mother.
