Ten Lessons from  Noah's Ark  Everything I need to know,  I learned from Noah's Ark.
ONE:  Don't miss the boat
TWO:  Remember that we are all in the same boat.
THREE:  Plan ahead. It wasn't raining when Noah built the Ark.
FOUR:  Stay fit. When you're over 60 years old, someone may ask you to do something really big.
FIVE:  Don't listen to critics; just get on with the job that needs to be done.
SIX:  Build your future on high ground.
SEVEN:  For safety's sake, travel in pairs.
EIGHT:  Speed isn't always an advantage. The snails were on board with the cheetahs.
NINE:  When you're stressed,  float awhile.
TEN:  Remember, the Ark was built by amateurs; the Titanic by professionals.
