Quotables

Over my career I have heard or said some amusing things…

“Fix like a car, or fix like a cat?” – John Merenkov, M.D.

When you fix a car you restore normal operation. When you fix a cat, you
prevent the “problem” from recurring. This may be accomplished by brutally
removing the source of the problem.

“You can lead a horse to water, but you may not be able to hold his face
under the surface.” -me

Sometimes people are stubborn, but drowning them may prove more difficult
than originally thought.

“If you show a man fire, he will be warm for a little while, but if you
light him on fire, he will be warm for the rest of his life.” –
unattributed

Sometime your goal is not the comfort of your team, but to induce a sense
of urgency at the risk of burning them out.
