    Pig is very successful in starting and completing ONE talent.

    Pig is a master at being a PIG-IN-A-BLANKET.

    The single most shared trait of successful people is their ability to keep finding a way to move forward when progress is possible. And to cut their losses when it’s not. And to recognize the difference.

    If at first you don’t succeed, redefine success.

    Quitting is way too easy to do! They should make that harder.

    If at first you don’t succeed, call the plumber.

    It’s weird how Pastis follows me around so often to get his ideas.

    The difference between success and failure, is quitting.

    You can’t spell “success” without “suc”.

    Outta try building and organizing an Emergency Response Team and their backups (50 * 3), writing, and pulling off annual Response Drills for all for 15 years, to include DOD, State, and Municipal involvement and overseers present. I’d call him Wimpy if he wasn’t going to pay me Tuesday.

    I know so many people like Pig who whine about how “lucky” I am to have the things I have. It wasn’t luck, it was hard work, sacrifices, and the willingness to pick myself up when I fell (failed). I have always refused to let someone else determine my fate.

    I diagnose Pig as “manic-depressive”; or as is now said, having Bipolar Affective Disorder (BAD). In his case, there is no cure; he is beyond the limited reach of psychotherapy….

    Tenacity is what separates the successful from the unsuccessful.
