The only part of any plan that you can truly count on is that nothing will go according to plan ... Be flexible.

  Your going to have to explain the word "foma" to me.  I tried looking it up but couldn't find it in Websters dictionary...   :tellme:

  If it isn't broke, don't try to fix it.

I've always preferred: Adapt or die.

Keeping in the Bokonian theme Stephen has introduced I'd add:

Know a granfalloon for a granfalloon when you find yourself in one. - me ;)

Me too ... But it tends to make clients uneasy when you say shit like that onsite. ;) :D

Agree. In my neck of the woods it might even be considered "contributing to a 'hostile workplace'" and get you fired. :-\

I always like this one:

Life is what happens while you are busy making other plans.
 John Lennon

Seems often I "surf" life like surfing the web.  I start out with a specific destination or purpose.  When I find I can't go there or do that, I choose something from what's possible at the time.   ;D

How strange, I would have classed it as "incentive based employment".  :D

From what I can gather.  Rather cautious about the description though seeing as I found it on Urban Dictionary lol

This would be a better starting point. See also. As it was meant to happen, I converted to Bokononism a while back. ;)

If at first you don't succeed, make sure you have somebody you can pin it on.  :P
