Last week, I was at a Stereo Audio Shop getting an upgrade to the sound system in my truck.

This was on the wall.

Likely appropriate for many of our expert reelsmiths on site.

Best,

Fred

Self-worth is how you value yourself. It’s not based on what others think of you or the things you have (or haven’t) accomplished—it comes from within. But it’s easy to forget that our worth isn’t determined by outside forces -- each of us sets our own price.

In life, be flexible, willing to listen to others, willing to change your mind based on your good judgement -- that is how progress is made, and new horizons are discovered.  When the winds of change blow -- A flexible limb moves and thrives -- a stiff and stubborn limb just snaps.

Fred - not only appropriate to reel work. I was recently reminded when quized 'how do you know that', I replied '50 odd years of learning'. Knowledge is one aspect, the ability to usefully employ that knowledge is a different kettle of fish Smiley

Leave the gun.  Take the cannolis.

 Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he will sit in a boat all day drinking beer.

I tell my kids that there are those with 5 years of experience and those with one year of experience 5 times over.  I have 40 years of experience.  I don’t how many it will take to replace me but we’re getting close to finding out!

Well, I've gained so much experience over the years that I've forgotten a lot what I used to know. I think I should be compensated for that, too.  Wink It ain't easy having "some-timers", you know!   Grin

Yeah, me too.  I have to forget some more stuff in order to make room for anything new in there.

That's the 'Penguins on the rock' memory analogy. Your memories are like penguins on a crowded rock and every time a new one jumps onto the rock an old one has to go back into the sea.

Yep, I came to the conclusion awhile back that my working memory has been overloaded and therefor has affected the encoding of my long-term memory.  Grin

I have forgotten more than you will ever know. Wink
That is what I tell the new supervisors. Deep down, they know it is true. Grin
