A T-shirt Idea For The Masses

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty 0575737

Beta PersonIn software development there is a term prior to releasing the production ready, supposedly bug free software, and this is called beta release. It made me think of

A T-shirt Idea For The Masses.

We are all Beta people, not quite ready most of our lives for prime time. What I mean by that in a group setting, imagine handing out all these Beta Person T-shirts to everyone and REMIND yourself that YOU "and" THEM are not perfect people and we are all on different points in learning with our journey.

A good creed for yourself is GET BETTER with each day of your life even if you allow yourself some lesser number of days for setbacks. And those others you interact with too, THEY ARE still in beta as well.

Helps you as a reminder that we are a 'work in progress.'

Gary the older I get the more I realize that I'm a work in progress and I laugh at those that still need to learn that lesson... which they will...

Gary - I resemble the quote on that shirt.  I'm continually being tested, that's how I know:-)

Software is a great industry to be in when testing and implementing new data. Hey we are in beta and that covers every excuse.

Gary, I know for sure that I am still in Beta.  But, by the time I get to Alpha, I certainly won't care!  Good food for thought, my friend.

   Even at my age, I still feel like a 'Beta Release'. I'd wear that T-shirt!

Gary:  An interesting post.  But... I am really wondering just how many folks would have any idea what that means?  Honestly, until I read the post... I did not know... or at least wasn't sure what it meant.  Not very a techie person here.

** I just read all of the comments above, and it looks like I am the only dope out of all 32 comments.  That's ok, though.  Not really on my list of things I needed to know.

Gary, I love the t-shirt...do think we are almost in beta every step at life and reflecting on personal & business past happenings should get us to thinking more so...love to be in production mode all the time!

Good thought.  Every time I see a program in beta I run for the hills saying I'll wait for the 'official' release.  In life though, there is no official release is there?

Gary, that's actually quite funny. I would like to think I'm a work in progress as compared to the alternative. LOL.
