FC: Information Technology Services Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia | Our Retirement Wishes to Karen Dykstra
1: Leading the way for new development!
3: Change is good. You go first. Dilbert | If at first you don't succeed, try again. Then quit. No use being a fool about it. Dilbert
4: "Don't count the years...count the memories."
6: I'm slowly becoming a convert to the principle that you can't motivate people to do things, you can only demotivate them. The primary job of the manager is not to empower but to remove obstacles. Dilbert
7: Most problems go away if you just wait long enough. It might look like I'm standing motionless but I'm actively waiting for our problems to go away. I don't know why this works but it does. Dilbert | Technology: No Place for Wimps! Dilbert
8: The longer you work here, the more diverse it gets. Dilbert
9: We must develop knowledge optimization initiatives to leverage our key learnings. Dilbert
10: Administrative Services Team 2011
12: A Picture is Worth 1,000 Words
13: Why is it that the nuttiest people define reality? Dilbert
16: Always teaching, learning, sharing!
19: Age is opportunity no less, Than youth itself, though in another dress, And as the evening twilight fades away, The sky is filled with stars, invisible by day. — Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
31: A pat on the back is only a few inches from a kick in the butt. | I love deadlines. I especially like the whooshing sound they make as they go flying by. | On the keyboard of life, always keep one finger on the escape key. | Everybody is somebody else's weirdo. | Don't be irreplaceable. If you can't be replaced, you can't be promoted. | If it wasn't for the last minute, nothing would get done. | Following the rules will not get the job done.
