Daily Quote: February 17, 2022

If you want to increase your success rate,
double your failure rate.

~ Thomas J. Watson

Porte Musings:

Today we practice Random Acts Of Kindness Day. So get out there and do some random acts of kindness.

On a perhaps conflicting note today is also My Way Day. Although the two ideas could share the same space if your way is doing random acts of kindness.

A quick cup of Cafe au Lait and your helping to celebrate National Café au Lait Day.

The quote for today is inaccurate, as rates are portions of or percentages. It should have been if you want to increase your number of successes, increase your number of failures. But as I learned in University not everything is literal. My friends used to say put the book under your pillow and learn by osmosis. I never got the joke because osmosis is the diffusion of water. The saying should have been put the book under your pillow and learn by diffusion, but the correct phrase never caught on.
