“You see, a wire telegraph is a kind of a very, very long cat.

You pull his tail in New York and his head is meowing in Los Angeles.

Do you understand this?

And radio operates exactly the same way: you send signals here, they receive them there.

The only difference is that there is no cat.”


-—Albert Einstein

Stress Reduction Tip #1

Words of Wisdom!

“Stress primarily comes from not taking action over something that you can have some control over. So, if I find that some particular thing is causing me to have stress, that’s a warning flag for me. What it means is there’s something that I haven’t completely identified perhaps in my conscious mind that is bothering me, and I haven’t yet taken any action on it.

I find as soon as I identify it, and make the first phone call, or send off the first e-mail message, or whatever it is that we’re going to do to start to address that situation — even if it’s not solved — the mere fact that we’re addressing it dramatically reduces any stress that might come from it. So, stress comes from ignoring things that you shouldn’t be ignoring, I think, in large part.”


—Jeff Bezos, Amazon.com Founder
