I Believe (Part III)

I BELIEVE

I believe in taxing items on the Internet the same way state governments tax items at a brick and mortar store.

 

I believe you often learn more by listening to your adversaries than people who agree with you.

 

I believe in slowing down sometimes on your way home from work even if it means missing 5 minutes of television.

 

I believe the busier you are, the more you accomplish.

 

I think sometimes exercise gets a bad rap — perhaps not call it exercise and encourage people to move their bodies in many different situations.

 

I think having or inheriting money doesn’t necessarily give you class or automatically enable you to act in a dignified matter.

 

I believe some people lose all social customs and graces when they hear that something is free — be it food, free little gifts or t-shirts.

 

I believe the tongue is among the smallest muscles in your body and the most difficult to control.

 

I believe in pushing yourself sometimes to “get out of your comfort zone.”

 

I believe that it often feels better to give than it feels to receive.

 

I believe, for office workers, to spend some time working with your hands can provide a refreshing perspective.

 

I believe if you only have 5 minutes to stretch, it’s preferable to stretch after exercise rather than before it.

 

I believe for every new law that’s adding to the books, politicians should seriously consider removing one.

 

I believe we should not let Iowa have so much influence in picking a president through their caucus system.

 

I believe we need higher death taxes.

 

I believe in increasing the gasoline tax by 50 cents per gallon to help fund electric cars,rail infrastructure and reduce our dependency on oil.

 

I believe we need U.S. Senate and Representative term limits.

 

I believe that spreading around positive karma may help you out in a pinch.

 

I believe using the Google search tool is often more useful in finding an error in Microsoft’s software than using Microsoft’s online help.

 

I believe in terms of writing, you sometimes are more creative and less critical or vice versa. Know what you’re best at and leverage it.

 

I believe Google or Facebook does not own our information and we have a right to keep it private.

 

I believe that standing up while talking on the phone helps you to better project yourself.

 

I believe it’s sometimes effective to read dissenting opinion to another perspective.

 

I believe it is critically important for companies that spend all that money for a super bowl add remember it’s not how cute your ad is (if they don’t remember the product) but somehow to make your product as memorable as the commercial.

 

I believe you can help “make someone’s day” by listening to their story or when they’re having a bad day.
