...plan ahead. It wasn't raining when Noah built the ark.
...Stay fit. When you're 600 years old, someone might ask you to do something REALLY big.
...Don't listen to critics - do what has to be done.
...Build on high ground.
...For safety's sake, travel in pairs.
...Two heads are better than one.
...Speed isn't always an advantage. The cheetahs were on board, but so were the snails.
...If you can't fight or flee - float!
...Don't forget: we're all in the same boat.
...When the doo-doo gets really deep, don't just sit there & complain - shovel!
...Stay below deck during the storm.
...Remember: the ark was built by amateurs & the Titanic was built by professionals.
...If you have to start over, have a friend by your side.
...Remember: woodpeckers inside are often a bigger threat than the storm outside.
...Don't miss the boat.
...No matter how bleak it looks, there's always a rainbow on the other side.
...When you're stressed, float awhile.
