I don't say Yes to my wife, it's more like yes dear and then get at the task

That's a valuable suggestion from Theodore Roosevelt, Thomas.  I know I've learned to do a lot of things in life, because I was required to.

Hi Thomas- when I used to staff offices, I told my applicants to try not to say "no." For example if they were asked if they could work a particular machine, instead of just saying "no" tell them you could learn it quickly.

Hello Thomas - having a can-do attitude is an excellent start on the road to achieving any task or goal.
