When I am getting ready to reason with a man I spend one-third of my time thinking about myself and what I am going to say and two-thirds about him and what he is going to say.
People spend too much time finding other people to blame too much energy finding excuses for not being what they are capable of being and not enough energy putting themselves on the line growing out of the past and getting on with their lives.
Working on 'Gossip Girl' was a fantastic experience. It was my first real gig and I'm thankful for it - I got to learn a lot. I'm glad I got to explore getting comfortable in my own shoes in the background on a show like 'Gossip Girl.'
Before my teen years I was losing my hearing pretty quickly and I was getting very very angry. I was beginning to become an angry person because of that.
The intellectual property situation is bad and getting worse. To be a programmer it requires that you understand as much law as you do technology.
We are looking for development partners people to work alongside us which will accelerate our actually getting licences the technology into product into the markets.
On the other hand there would be some value in different folks getting together to share expertise and technology but to the listener it wouldn't necessarily seem like a single station in the traditional sense.
I know there are lots of positives in the evolution of technology but I also think it will be responsible for the end of a unique character of a specific kind of geographical culture. The world is getting so small and mass production is getting so big. Everything is in danger of becoming the same.
Every time somebody tries to go in and reinvent what we do it always ends up being more about technology and sets and flash and dash forgetting the main thing which is interesting people saying interesting important things.
Really in technology it's about the people getting the best people retaining them nurturing a creative environment and helping to find a way to innovate.
I got so passionate about technology. Hacking to me was like a video game. It was about getting trophies. I just kept going on and on despite all the trouble I was getting into because I was hooked.
Getting information off the Internet is like taking a drink from a fire hydrant.
I was 20 years old working as a roofer and a telemarketer and driving a taxi just barely getting by. A friend of a friend suggested I try acting. I was like 'Why? What am I going to do? Community theater?' But I took a class and the teacher thought that I had potential so I moved to Vancouver and started auditioning.
Technology is just a tool. In terms of getting the kids working together and motivating them the teacher is the most important.
I'm a mum so my wardrobe consists of sweaters and jeans. As long as I don't leave the house forgetting my jeans I count that as a fashion success.
I didn't have a whole lot of success getting dates I was always a bit of a geek.
Despite the success cult men are most deeply moved not by the reaching of the goal but by the grandness of the effort involved in getting there - or failing to get there.
Success consists of getting up just one more time than you fall.
You've got to eat while you dream. You've got to deliver on short-range commitments while you develop a long-range strategy and vision and implement it. The success of doing both. Walking and chewing gum if you will. Getting it done in the short-range and delivering a long-range plan and executing on that.
While I was doing stand-up I thought I knew for sure that success meant getting everyone to like me. So I became whoever I thought people wanted me to be. I'd say yes when I wanted to say no and I even wore a few dresses.
Before everything else getting ready is the secret of success.
Success is falling nine times and getting up ten.
I worshipped dead men for their strength forgetting I was strong.
My knee is as strong as it was before if not stronger and it's a matter of getting my leg strong. I lost six years of strength in about six month's time so it's going to take another year or two to get that leg back up to full strength but I'm good to go so far.
