My version…..

If you think you can, you can.
If you think you should dare, then do.
If you like to win, and you think you can. It is almost certain you will.
If you think you’re the best, you are,
For out in the world we find success begins with a fellow’s will. It’s all in the state of mind.

If you think you cannot fail, you won’t.
You’ve got to think high to rise.
You’ve got to be sure of yourself before you win a prize.
Life’s battles don’t always go to the stronger or faster one
But sooner or later, the one who wins is the one who thinks they can.

The Man Who Thinks He Can

If you think you are beaten, you are.
If you think you dare not, you don’t.
If you like to win, but you think you can’t. It is almost certain you won’t.
If you think you’ll lose, you’ve lost,
For out in the world we find success begins with a fellow’s will. It’s all in the state of mind.

If you think you are outclassed, you are.
You’ve got to think high to rise.
You’ve got to be sure of yourself before you can even win a prize.
Life’s battles don’t always go To the stronger or faster man
But soon or late the man who wins is the man who thinks he can

Social networking … do you need to get on board this train!?

Friday, January 2nd, 2009

You will find me on Facebook and LinkedIn often, and seldom on My Space; there is also Twitter, and the list goes on! It takes maybe an hour a month, but is is a fun (to me) and useful way to spend time! It allows me to:

  1. Update friends and family with new pictures of my developing family – babies grow up so fast and it is hard to remember to email everyone photos!
  2. Connect unusually with patients and professional contacts in a way that allows me and them to be very transparent – something I embrace and am not afraid of.

Social networking is not for everyone though.

There’s been a lot of buzz the past several years about how social networks are changing the world. But social networks aren’t just for kids; businesses are getting in on them too. In a recent E-Myth survey of more than 1800 small business owners, 74 percent have used LinkedIn, 48 percent have used Facebook and 32 percent have used a social networking site for business connections. What about you?
