Roy McDonald is my new hero

HuffingtonPost link:Republican NY State Senator Roy McDonald's Awesome Defense Of Gay Marriage:
"You get to the point where you evolve in your life where everything isn't black and white, good and bad, and you try to do the right thing.

You might not like that. You might be very cynical about that. Well, fuck it, I don't care what you think. I'm trying to do the right thing.

I'm tired of Republican-Democrat politics. They can take the job and shove it. I come from a blue-collar background. I'm trying to do the right thing, and that's where I'm going with this."

stop doing things that temporarily have a large impact

Always make changes so that they can be quickly reverted!

You never know when you need to quickly undo something.

i.e. work smarter, not harder.

i'm grateful

I'm grateful to have had the opportunity to work for and with a variety of companies from around the world.

My present company is particularly international, and I've really enjoyed the chance to interact with a number of people from European and Asian countries.

While working at a Japanese system integrator, I was able to meet quite a few Korean and Chinese companies working as integrators also. That was quite fun too.

The workaholic stance is quite pervasive - the effect of Confucianism?
