Friday Business Motivational
Long week? Let us lift your spirits with some motivation and inspiration before the weekend begins.
We know what it’s like to have a long week; after 15 years in web hosting Midphase has had its fair share of the TGIFs. To help you get through the last few hours of your week, here are some motivational thoughts; well some of them are just plain funny (and not quite so motivational) but hey – it’s Friday!

“The only way to do great work is to love what you do.” -Steve Jobs

Now that you are motivated, it’s okay to laugh too….
Two factory workers are talking. The woman says, “I can make the boss give me the day off.” The man replies, “And how would you do that?” The woman says, “Just wait and see.” She then hangs upside down from the ceiling. The boss comes in and says, “What are you doing?” The woman replies, “I’m a light bulb.” The boss then says, “You’ve been working so much that you’ve gone crazy. I think you need to take the day off.” The man starts to follow her and the boss says, “Where are you going?” The man says, “I’m going home, too. I can’t work in the dark.”
Reaching the end of a job interview, the Human Resources Officer asks a young engineer fresh out of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, “And what starting salary are you looking for?” The engineer replies, “In the region of $125,000 a year, depending on the benefits package.” The interviewer inquires, “Well, what would you say to a package of five weeks vacation, 14 paid holidays, full medical and dental, company matching retirement fund to 50% of salary, and a company car leased every two years, say, a red Corvette?” The engineer sits up straight and says, “Wow! Are you kidding?” The interviewer replies, “Yeah, but you started it.”
If debugging is the process of removing software bugs, then programming must be the process of putting them in.
Happy Friday everyone! Stay strong – the weekend is almost here!
