Taylor's Laws

  1. Reality is a state of mind.
  2. People will not admit a problem exists until they perceive there is a solution.
  3. When faced with an unsolvable problem, change the question.
  4. There are at least 50 different ways of looking at any situation.  Try to find them.
  5. When searching for answers, ask, "What is most obvious?"
  6. There is always an "x" factor at work in any problem, situation or equation.  The "x" factor may be large or small, but it is always there.  Usually, the "x" factor and/or its significance is not recognized until long after the fact.
  7. When traveling the Road of Life, never forget: There are critical road signs missing.  Be prepared to change direction and stumble around occasionally. ó Barbara Taylor
