Peter’s Laws

My daughter found a poster with these on it… There are a couple that really hit home, so I copied the whole thing here.

The Creed of the Sociopathic Obsessive Compulsive.
  • If anything can go wrong, Fix It! To hell with Murphy!
  • When given a choice – Take both!
  • Multiple projects lead to multiple successes.
  • Start at the top, then work your way up.
  • Do it by the book… but be the author!
  • When forced to compromise, ask for more.
  • If you can’t beat them, join them. Then beat them.
  • If it’s worth doing, it’s got to be done right now.
  • If you can’t win. Change the rules.
  • If you can’t change the rules. Ignore them.
  • Perfection is not optional.
  • When faced without a challenge, make one.
  • “No” simply means begin again one level higher.
  • Don’t walk when you can run.
  • Bureaucracy is a challenge to be conquered with a righteous attitude, a tolerance for stupidity, and a bulldozer when necessary.
  • When in doubt: THINK!
  • Patience is a virtue, but persistence to the point of success is a blessing.
  • The squeaky wheel gets replaced.
  • The faster you move, the slower time passes, the longer you live.
