Keep An Open Mind, There Is Always Another Way To Look At Things

September 9, 2014

Open Mind Color

It has been awhile since I’ve posted due to all the usual suspects—my real job, my volunteer work, a much needed garage sale, a bunch of family and friends birthdays—blah, blah, blah.  But a buddy of mine ran across this little ditty and he shared it with me and so I’m passing it on to you.  The beauty of this is its simplicity.  It takes a commonly held belief and turns it around so you see the other side of the story—you see things from another angle.  And maybe you change your mind or maybe you come away with a different mind set.

I would think this concept can be applied in many other situations—but only if you keep an open mind!!


Open Mind-pi openmind

A mechanic was removing a cylinder-head from a Harley motorcycle when he spotted a well-known cardiologist in his shop.
The cardiologist was there waiting for the
service manager to come and take a look at his bike when the
mechanic shouted across the Garage, ‘Hey Doc,
want to take a look at this?’ The cardiologist, a bit
surprised, walked over to where the mechanic was working on
the motorcycle.

The mechanic then asked, “So Doc, look at this engine. I open
its heart, take the valves out, repair any damage, and then put them
back in, and when I finish, it works just like new.
So how come I make $39,675 a year and you get the
really big bucks ($1,695,759) when you and I are doing basically
the same work?”

The cardiologist paused, smiled and leaned over, then whispered to the mechanic,

“Try doing it with the engine running.”

    There’s this cruise ship and there’s a magician that works on the ship and the captain had a parrot that liked to go to the show every night. The parrot understood the show and since it could talk it would give away everything. “Ohh, he’s puttin’ it in his sock bbbrrrrrrkkkkk” “he put it up his sleeve bbbrrrrrrkkkkk” “its in his hat bbbrrrrrrkkkkk.” And the magician just hated this bird. And one night he just snapped and he pulled out a pistol and he shot the bird and the bird ducked and the bullet misses the bird and it hits a propane tank and blows the ship to a billion pieces. The only survivors are the parrot and the magician and their floating out in the middle of the ocean on two little pieces of wood and the parrot goes “Alright I give up. Where’s the damn ship?”
