Lately I’ve been reading the teachings of a hot new Chinese philosopher. His name is Lao Zee. Lao bears an eerie resemblance to the late Bruce Lee and his insights are brilliant. So much so that I feel the need to share a few below:
If a recorded voice on the telephone says “Please wait for the next available customer service representative,” you are about to hear a forty-minute flute solo. Be ready.
If your career counselor asks “What do you enjoy, what are you good at?” and all you can come up with is “I’m a good liar,” do not despair. You can always major in Public Relations. Lies are easier to profit from than the truth when corporations are involved.
Leaders lead because they are smarter than you. For example, they often de-fund arts and music programs and push Math and Science. They do so because they know that Willie Nelson could also excel at preparing tax returns.
The people who are most outraged by a situation will be the ones who are most ignorant of the facts. They’ll also be watching Fox News.
Always trust your instincts. For example, if you’re skiing and you see a sign that says “Cliff”, just go for it. That’s probably the guy they named the run after.
Pretty sharp stuff. I can see why Lao is so popular.

I feel enlightened! 🙂
Lao has some serious potential going on there.
Good stuff! I especially like the thoughts on Honesty and Anger.
