Who is Teacher Joe?

If you want to learn English well, you have to practice speaking English! Use these sentences to help you start interesting conversations in English.

"Every success is built on the ability to do better than good enough. "

Do you think this is too "idealistic"? (The opposite of "realistic".) Do we often have enough time to do "better than good enough"? Think of some success you have had. Did you really do "better than good enough"? How about other people who have succeeded?

"Would you like me to give you a formula for success? Double your rate of failure."
- Thomas J. Watson

The founder of IBM probably knew a little something about success. I'm not going to argue with him! But I wonder, can you fail everyday, in order to succeed in the future? What will you do to fail tomorrow? Ask your friends the same question!
"If A equals success, then the formula is A equals X plus Y plus Z, with X being work, Y play, and Z keeping your mouth shut."
- Albert Einstein

In many jobs, hard work is not enough. We need creativity, and creativity comes from PLAYING. Do you ever "play" at your job? Why do you think we need to keep our mouth shut? Is it because we might have trouble with our boss? Or is it because we have to keep our secrets to ourselves?

"One only gets to the top rung of the ladder by steadily climbing up one at a time."
- Margaret Thatcher

Sometimes we are too impatient to succeed. We need to take our time. What is your next step on the "ladder of success"? Do you know what step comes after that? What step have you succeeded in climbing recently?
