How to Win Friends and Influence People

Sunday! :) I used to hate Sundays when I was a kid… last precious minutes of the weekend before going back to school on Monday, trying to avoid going to church… then I grew and Sunday unequivocally equalled hang-over :) Today however, Sunday means the day I close open loops and get things done to wrap up the week nicely (yeah, for real, it has finally come to this XDDD).

Anyhow, here goes a little of weekend sunshine for everyone. This time through a book that should be mandatory reading in every school, university and shrine of education: How to Win Friends and Influence People, written in 1936 by Dale Carnegie and that remains, nonchalantly, fresh as the very day it was written. Read below…

Your smile is a messenger of your good will. Your smile brightens the lives of all who see it. To someone who has seen a dozen people frown, scowl or turn their faces away, your smile is like the sun breaking through the clouds. Especially when that someone is under pressure from his bosses, his customers, his teachers or parents or children, a smile can help him realize that all is not hopeless — that there is joy in the world.

and smile.

P.S. I have started refreshing ASP.NET MVC by doing some coding creating a new entry in my wiki, with a little bit or Razor and IoC. Yey!
