William's Blog...with a smile!


There may be more than one way to look at things.

 We really need to be very precise on our instructions.

What sounds like a very simple statement can have major issues in the

actual meaning.

This can make a big difference in the written or verbal statements we make.

So, stop and think before you speak.

It could save you a lot of money.

Ah yes, perception is everything.  If you put 5 artists in front of a mighty Oak, each will paint it differently.
