Shut Up, Stop Whining and Get a Life

Posted in Uncategorized on October 14, 2009 by mboyle1959

No, I didn’t insult you. Believe it or not, Shut Up, Stop Whining and Get a Life is a book title. In fact the subtitle is “a kick butt approach to a better life”.  Trust me, this is a good book. The author, Larry Winget, bills himself as the worlds only irritational speaker. Not motivational, irritational.

I didn’t have a highlighter handy so I was folding over page corners. I must have marked 60-70 pages with great quotes and one liners. Here are a few samples:

” The three main reasons people are not successful

They are stupid

They are lazy

They don’t give a damn”

How about this one:

“You become what you think about?

If that were true most adolescent boys would be girls”

This book is full of common sense. I’m going to buy a bunch for my staff. Check it out.
