Think out of the box

Category: Personal[email protected] @ 11:35

I choose to help a friend ....... but for sure I was thinking inside the box!!!

You are driving down the road in your car on a wild,
stormy night, when you pass by a bus stop and you see three people
waiting for the bus:

1. An old lady who looks as if she is about to die.
2. An old friend who once saved your life.

3. The perfect partner you have been dreaming about.

Which one would you choose to offer a ride to, knowing that
there could only be one passenger in your car? Think before you continue reading.

This is a moral/ethical dilemma that was once actually used as part of a job
application. You could pick up the old lady, because she is going to die, and thus you should save her first. Or you could take the old friend because he once saved your life, and this would be the perfect chance to pay him back. However, you may never be able to find your perfect mate again.

BELIEVE THIS...................

The candidate who was hired (out of 200 applicants) had no trouble coming up with his answer. He simply answered: 'I would give the car keys to my   old friend and let him take the lady to the hospital. I would stay behind and wait for the bus with the partner of my dreams.'

Sometimes, we gain more if we are able to give up our stubborn thought   limitations.
Never forget to 'Think Outside of the Box.'

Yes true, today (October 22nd 2008) is my 28th birthday.

I usually don't celebrate this ceremony, doesn't mean much for me in fact, just a date that made me open my eyes on this life. Fine, no problem.

Usually when it is someone's birthday, they say "Happy Birthday". What if that person is not that happy? Will it be "Sad Birthday"? Fair enough

28 years of what?
Childhood during civil war in Lebanon? Fine
Not interesting schools? Fine

Good/Sad/Painful days at university? Fine
Graduating with 3 majors and average of 94/100? Not bad

Bad/Depressing days in my military service? Fine

Working at the first company for one year? Not bad
Working for CCC for the last 3 years? Not bad

Getting an MVP? Good
Nominating others for being MVPs? True

Author, publishing articles? hmmm, well good
Author publishing a book? Again it is better

Person with a caring family? Perfect
Person caring for his family? Again it is perfect

Person helping others? Wow nice
Person getting help from others? Thank you

Person feeling love? Good
Person feeling hatred? Too bad

Person hurting others? Too bad, didn't mean this usually
Person getting hurt from others? It is a fact, but you can be forgotten like anyone else ....

Person breaking others' hearts? True, mistkanes happen sometimes
Person with broken heart? It is ok, what is important others to be happy, you broken heart? Nah, not a big deal.... Stay cool


Well, the only thing *Happy* for the above, I tried and always try to live my life on *My Way*. And here I am today, celebrating my birthday on *My Way*, with my own words and thoughts, wishing all those whose birthday is same as mine, a good and happy birthday.

It is not what you own, it is what you give.
It is not what you think, it is what you do.
It is not what they want, it is what you want.
It is not the age, it is the spirit.
It is not the birthday; it is the years passing....
It is not what happenED, it is what WILL happen....

Finally, I would like to dedicate, myself and all those who were born on the same day, the song "I Did It My Way".

And now, the end is here
And so I face the final curtain
My friend, I'll say it clear
I'll state my case, of which I'm certain
I've lived a life that's full
I traveled each and every highway
And more, much more than this, I did it my way

Regrets, I've had a few
But then again, too few to mention
I did what I had to do and saw it through without exemption
I planned each charted course, each careful step along the byway
And more, much more than this, I did it my way

Yes, there were times, I'm sure you knew
When I bit off more than I could chew
But through it all, when there was doubt
I ate it up and spit it out
I faced it all and I stood tall and did it my way

I've loved, I've laughed and cried
I've had my fill, my share of losing
And now, as tears subside, I find it all so amusing
To think I did all that
And may I say, not in a shy way,
"Oh, no, oh, no, not me, I did it my way"

For what is a man, what has he got?
If not himself, then he has naught
To say the things he truly feels and not the words of one who kneels
The record shows I took the blows and did it my way!
