Sometimes you've just got to let your hair down and break a few eggs to make an omelet. Few people keep their nose to the grindstone or burn the midnight oil. Others are in seventh heaven because for them every cloud has a silver lining.
It's important to note, however, that a watched pot never boils because whoever dies with the most toys wins. Unlike the blind leading the blind, some choose to burn the candle at both ends. But come hell or high water, the shoe will end up on the other foot. If I were in their shoes, I'd take it like a man and you can take that to the bank.
If you haven't got a row to hoe, buckle under or buckle down but don't throw the baby out with the bathtub. Pay attention to details but don't cut off your nose to spite your face. It's always best to keep your shoulder to the wheel so straighten up and fly right. Always remember not to air your dirty laundry in public because you might be stepping on someone’s toes. Even if you give one hundred and ten percent, you're still going to be like a bull in a china shop.
I always let sleeping dogs lie because it's no skin off my back when someone’s fishing for compliments. Also, if someone gets up on their soapbox, make sure they look before they leap. Most times they haven't got a chance in hell even if they're as busy as a bee. He who hesitates is lost. It's like whistling in the dark knowing you haven't got a snowballs chance in hell after you missed the boat. I don't want to stir up a hornets’ nest, but it's not always a good idea to upset the apple cart because it can make you feel like opening a can of worms instead of resting on your laurels.
Sometimes I'm caught with my pants down because it’s a dog eat dog world. But as I say, when in Rome do as the Roman's do and don't be a pain in the ass, Rules are made to be broken especially when someone drives you up the wall. The exception proves the rule and as we all know, people who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones.
The best thing you can do is not rock the boat. And don't be led down the garden path. Keep a stiff upper lip and pull a rabbit out of the hat. Go the extra mile and make hay while the sun shines because when it rains, it pours.
