Understanding your employee's perspective can go a long way towards increasing productivity and happiness.
It's always difficult to say goodbye, especially when one has spent a long time - literally years, in the case of a series - inside a character or two, suffering and celebrating with them.
Television, radio, social media. The 24/7 news cycle plows forward mercilessly on our desks, in our cars and in our pockets. Thousands and thousands of messages and voices bombard us from the moment we wake, fighting for our attention. All we see and hear, all day long, is news. And most of it is bad.
I'm a very positive person, but this whole concept of having to always be nice, always smiling, always happy, that's not real. It was like I was wearing a mask. I was becoming this perfectly chiselled sculpture, and that was bad. That took a long time to understand.
It is imperfection - not perfection - that is the end result of the program written into that formidably complex engine that is the human brain, and of the influences exerted upon us by the environment and whoever takes care of us during the long years of our physical, psychological and intellectual development.
There are children playing in the streets who could solve some of my top problems in physics, because they have modes of sensory perception that I lost long ago.
J. Robert Oppenheimer
I look my best when I take my helmet off after a long motorcycle ride. I have a glow and a bit of helmet hair.
I'm racing against me. As long as I come across the finish, I'll be okay.
Time stays long enough for anyone who will use it.
Leonardo da Vinci
Many a witty inspiration is like the surprising reunion of befriended thoughts after a long separation.
Karl Wilhelm Friedrich Schlegel
As long as you have capital punishment there is no guarantee that innocent people won't be put to death.
Friendship will not stand the strain of very much good advice for very long.
Robert Staughton Lynd
Social cohesion was built into language long before Facebook and LinkedIn and Twitter - we're tribal by nature. Tribes today aren't the same as tribes thousand of years ago: It isn't just religious tribes or ethnic tribes now: It's sports fans, it's communities, it's geography.
I've never wanted anybody to like me because I had long hair or short hair, or that they liked the way I dressed or they liked the way I dressed or they liked the way I smile.
David Allan Coe
Treasure the love you receive above all. It will survive long after your good health has vanished.
It took me quite a long time to develop a voice, and now that I have it, I am not going to be silent.
Map out your future - but do it in pencil. The road ahead is as long as you make it. Make it worth the trip.
Jon Bon Jovi
There are two industry secrets to surviving a long day on camera on the red carpet: First, no drinking the night before - ever. You can celebrate after with some bubbly. Second is make sure to use shoe insoles. I don't care if you are a guy or a girl, dress shoes are painful. Worth it, but painful.
Long run is a misleading guide to current affairs. In the long run we are all dead.
John Maynard Keynes
I start to think there really is no cure for depression, that happiness is an ongoing battle, and I wonder if it isn't one I'll have to fight for as long as I live. I wonder if it's worth it.
Faith, family, academics and then sports was the order of priorities in my family. My parents really stuck to these principles when raising me and my two brothers. As long as we took care of everything, they let us play as much basketball as we wanted.
I learned a long time ago the wisest thing I can do is be on my own side, be an advocate for myself and others like me.
One of my great regrets, and I don't have many, is that I spent too long putting people's status and reputation ahead of their more important qualities. I learned far too late in life that a long list of letters after someone's name is no guarantee of compassion, kindness, humour, all the far more relevant stuff.
So long as there is imperialism in the world, a permanent peace is impossible.
A friend is long sought, hardly found, and with difficulty kept.
John F. Kennedy
Martin Luther King, Jr.
