the donkey and the well

November 20, 2012 at 6:37 am (Uncategorized)

One day a farmer’s donkey fell down into a well. The animal cried piteously for hours as the farmer tried to figure out what to do. Finally, he decided the animal was old, and the well needed to be covered up anyway; it just wasn’t worth it to retrieve the donkey.

He invited all his neighbors to come over and help him. They all grabbed a shovel and began to shovel dirt into the well. At first, the donkey realized what was happening and cried horribly. Then, to everyone’s amazement he quieted down.

A few shovel loads later, the farmer finally looked down the well. He was astonished at what he saw. With each shovel of dirt that hit his back, the donkey was doing something amazing. He would shake it off and take a step up.

As the farmer’s neighbors continued to shovel dirt on top of the animal, he would shake it off and take a step up. Pretty soon, everyone was amazed as the donkey stepped up over the edge of the well and happily trotted off!

Life is going to shovel dirt on you, all kinds of dirt. The trick to getting out of the well is to shake it off and take a step up. Each of our troubles is a steppingstone. We can get out of the deepest wells just by not stopping, never giving up! Shake it off and take a step up.

Remember the five simple rules to be happy:

1. Free your heart from hatred – Forgive.

2. Free your mind from worries – Most never happens.

3. Live simply and appreciate what you have.

4. Give more.

5. Expect less from people but more from yourself.

You have two choices… smile and close this page,
or LIKE this and pass it along to someone else to SHARE the lesson.

Oleg: Schedule says: Recurs Every Weekday. From scheduler I see Workday scheduled to run on Jan 31, which is Monday. Are Sat and Sun not a weekdays?

David: Nope. Should be set to daily, including weekends. Weekdays = M thru F only

Oleg: Oh really? So Sat and sun are not part of Weekday? My bad 🙂 Will set it to run every 7 days

Jason: Oleg, you are hardcore if you thought Saturday and Sunday were weekdays 🙂

We need this rubber chicken around the HR area that we can use to smack him in the head sometimes. We used to have this a couple of yrs ago when the BI team started out. I think I need to resurrect this!

Can you try:

Where upper(d_emp_manager) = ‘Jabba Wockee’

“Jabba Wockee”.

His preferred name is JONATHAN.


From: O-Nizzle
To: D-Rizzle; Jay Dizzle
Subject: RE: Will be reloading schema “O-dog”

Nope, for this name there are no records:

select d_emp_manager, a.*
from dw_integration_prelim a
where upper(d_emp_manager) = ‘Jabba Wockee (Jonathan) ‘

Unless there should be other name.

Jay dizzle, can you help research the data on the side of things?

Oleg, does Jabba Wockee (Jonathan) at least come up with valid direct reports under him?

Fucking stanford + harvard brainiac and funny person extraordinaire msged me on fb and this is what she said:

ur posting of mileage of runs makes me feel bad for being lazy, then ur appetizing food pics make me hungry. (the fact that im at my goddaughter’s house in sunnyvale and just ate a jar of her old baby food an the arm off a decorative holiday gingerbread man may also have contributed to the latter). the holiday season is not the right time for these mind games jason! =)=)
