THE GRAPEVINE! news, comment & a bit of gossip, Welfare to Work

Is the glass half full or half empty……Call for Calm

During a visit to the mental  asylum, I asked the director how do  you  determine whether or not a patient should be institutionalized.

“Well,” said the director, “we fill  up a bathtub, then we offer a teaspoon, a teacup and a bucket to the patient and ask him or her to empty the bathtub.”

“Oh, I understand,” I said. “A normal person would use the bucket because it’s bigger than the spoon or the teacup.”

“No.” said the director, “A normal person would pull the plug.

The moral …

There is a temptation to panic, become flustered and angry but it is important that we see the opportunity that is before us.

A letter is winging its way to you as I write:

  1. read it very carefully,
  2. count to 10
  3. digest its contents…. All is not lost…….

REMEMBER, ‘First Impressions’ can be misleading and confusing.
