A partial list of my tweets (@UpbeatNow) in December 2008:

A gem from Bobby Knight “Most people have the will to win, few have the will to prepare to win.” [Dec 9, 2008]

Statistics on an invitation-only social network: Most connected person has 3046 connections. 100th most connected person has 843 connections [Dec 10, 2008]

Simple strategy for a successful bailout: First show what happens if there is no bailout. Stocks plunge. Increase Fear. Then bailout. [Dec 11, 2008]

Sridhar Krishnan (chairman of Encover) sent me a few funny quotes. My favorite was “Everybody wants to go to heaven but nobody wants to die” [Dec 16, 2008]

Another one from Sridhar – “Where there is a will, there is a way; where there is money there are lots of ways”.. LOL :) [Dec 16, 2008]

Love the quote – “Change will lead to insight far more often than insight will lead to change” – Milton Erickson Courtesy: Tom Asacker [Dec 16, 2008]

You want others to care about you and others want the same. Stalemate. Solution – Start caring unconditionally & watch miracles unfold! [Dec 18, 2008]

The Deal: So you got the best deal from a particular vendor. The real question is: Did the vendor also feel the same way? [Dec 18, 2008]

Win-win is when both parties think that it was a 60:40 deal (Courtesy: Pat Guerra) [Dec 18, 2008]

Ken Blanchard quote – “People with humility don’t think less of themselves… they just think about themselves less” – Cool! [Dec 19, 2008]

This one is from Vance Havner – “It is not enough to stare up the steps – we must step up the stairs” [Dec 19, 2008]

“Are you lucky or smart?” Bo Peabody (founder of Tripod) says, “He was smart enough to know when he was getting lucky.” Cool! [Dec 21, 2008]

RK sends an interesting quote – “What is important in life is life; not the result of life.” Took me a while to get it ;) [Dec 22, 2008]

You have to question the question – “are you traveling for work or pleasure” – it gives a sense that they are mutually exclusive :) [Dec 24, 2008]

Couldn’t stop laughing – Business Week successful startup list was based on who raised most venture capital. LOL :) [Dec 30, 2008]

The art of leverage (wrongly used): expecting a 1-1 response from everyone in your list of “mass mailed” new year greetings :)  [Dec 30, 2008]

“No texting while driving law” in effect in CA starting tomorrow. The odd thing is that you need a “law” for this LOL [Dec 31, 2008]

I am a newbie on Twitter and my goal on Twitter is the same as my goal on my blog – focus on ROII.
