    "Do I have to explain the obvious?" I asked impatiently. "Somebody might break in and put zucchini in our house.”

    Chris Hadfield
    “In any new situation, whether it involves an elevator or a rocket ship, you will almost certainly be viewed in one of three ways. As a minus one: actively harmful, someone who creates problems. Or as a zero: your impact is neutral and doesn't tip the balance one way or the other. Or you'll be seen as a plus one: someone who actively adds value. Everyone wants to be a plus one, of course. But proclaiming your plus-oneness at the outset almost guarantees you'll be perceived as a minus one, regardless of the skills you bring to the table or how you actually perform.”
    Chris Hadfield, An Astronaut's Guide to Life on Earth
