I like thought provoking email signatures, I really do. However, sometimes, you see the same one so many times, and your so… over it. Like, I’ve already had a grand vision of Gandhi explaining to me how I must not seek what I must do with my future by outside stimuli, but rather, look within’ and massage my tummy while doing so.
…ok, maybe that was a bad trip, but the point is, I’ve started to replace some of those with none-to-witful replacements just so when I see them, instead of going, “Get out of the clouds, hippy!”, I instead laugh. You should try it too.
Here’s an example:
“Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.”
Can be replaced by:
“Life is not measured by the number of cows we put out to pasture, but by the pastures that our cows take away.”
