Peter’s laws

  • If anything can go wrong, fix it! (To hell with Murphy!)
  • When given a choice, take both.
  • Multiple projects lead to multiple successes.
  • Start at the top and work your way up.
  • Do it by the book… but be the author.
  • When forced to compromise, ask for more.
  • If you can’t beat them, join them, and then beat them.
  • If it’s worth doing, it’s got to be done now!
  • If you can’t win, change the rules.
  • If you can’t change the rules, then ignore them.
  • Perfection is not optional.
  • When faced without a challenge, make one.
  • “No” simply means begin again at one level higher.
  • Don’t walk when you can run.
  • When in doubt, THINK!
  • Patience is a virtue, but persistence to the point of success is a blessing.
  • The squeaky wheel gets replaced.
  • The faster you move, the slower time passes, the longer you live!
  • Bureaucracy is a challenge to be conquered with a righteous attitude, a tolerance for stupidity, and a bulldozer when necessary.
