The Creed of the Sociopathic Obsessive Compulsive

Peter's Laws

The Creed of the Sociopathic Obsessive Compulsive

1. If anything can go wrong, Fix it!

2. When given a choice -- Take both!

3. Multiple projects lead to multiple successes.

4. Start at the top and work your way up.

5. Do it by the book...but be the author!

6. When forced to compromise, ask for more.

7. If you can't beat them, join them, and then beat them.

8. If it's worth doing, it's got to be done right now.

9. If you can't win, change the rules.

10. If you can't change the rules, ignore them.

11. Perfection is not optional.

12.. When faced without a challenge, make one.

13. "No" simply means begin again at the next highest level.

14. Don't walk when you can run.

15. Bureaucracy is a challenge to the be conquered with a righteous attitude, an intolerance for stupidity, and bulldozer when necessary.

16. When in doubt: THINK!

17. Patience is a virtue but persistence to the point of success is a blessing.

18. The squeaky wheel gets replaced.

19. The faster you move, the slower time passes, the longer you live.

(notice: I did not write this; I found it on a poster somewhere. I mildly edited the list in order to remove a word of profanity)

I especially like (and relate to) number sixteen:
"When in doubt: THINK!"

Yes! How much pain and chaos we'd save ourselves if we only did it more often. >_>

Ah, this made my day! I actually recall seeing this in a store window somewhere and trying to read it, but my family came and dragged me away before I'd gotten very far *slight scowl* I'm glad I found it again though, thanks for sharing it! *slightly appeased and cheered up scowl*

It's interesting how much wisdom and whimsy can intertwine themselves. This list hits the nail right between the eyes!

Ack, sad day! The anguish of being dragged away from a promising quote. Actually, this just reminded me of one such glimpsed-quote that I wanted to look up. O_O Aha! eureka...

Brilliantly said, brilliantly said!
