“Hello World ” and 100 Bottles of Beer on the Wall

Favorite Beers of America in order of popularity:  Blue Moon, Bud Lite, Yeugling, Sam Adams, Miller Lite, Coors, and Corona.   How do you get rid of a 100 bottles of your favorite beer down off the wall quickly?  “You take one down, pass it around, 99 bottles of beer on the wall” of course.   And rarely have all the verses of this old song been sung. 

You’re tasked with getting a job.  Do you choose to accept it?  How do you get a job?  Using the drinking song plan:

Keep the task simple

List what you want

Laser focus on your objective, get a system

Enlist others for support

Start

Remember – Keep the main thing, the main thing

Persist

Sanity check

This is the same system as “Hello World” in computer programming.  It is a simple program that can be used by a beginner and it can be used to verify that you’re operating correctly.  The list above is a practical tool; useful and real.  This system is simple, it requires you make a decision, define a goal, and there is little chance of indefinitely effort.  Success will come.    

People will let you down; a system will not.  In computer language persisting, looping, and evaluating, control flow, is just as important as the beginning.   Be repetitive.  Looping back will need to be ingrained in process as well as the people for assuring success.   Control flow is as important a step because it requires you pay attention and notice unplanned for variances in your system.  I’m convinced that about half of what separates the successful entrepreneurs from the non-successful ones is pure perseverance.  – Steve Jobs

May you see “The operation is a success” come across the computer screen of your mind.
