Hi Healthsmart Here

That is a simple saying that says "If anything can go wrong it will"
Being a good Marketer involves a little knowledge about Murphys Law. How come? Simply put expect the unexpected. Instead of going head first into a business idea have a look at the possibility that it is not a good business and probably something may go wrong. Look out for some of these wise observations and thoughts Be a good Marketer
Definition of Murphy's Law

If anything can go wrong, it will go wrong Murphy's law:
(Sometimes known as the 4th law of Thermodynamics).

I have traced Murphy's law back to a Captain Edward A. Murphy, an American engineer at Muroc, California (later named Edwards Air Force Base). In 1949 he was working on a project to test the effects of sudden braking. Time after time his machinery failed, exasperated he said of his technician, 'If there is any way to do it wrong, he'll find it.' John Paul Stapp picked up on Murphy's phrase and used at a press conference.

As with any good idea, Murphy's Law can be adapted and extended.

1st Amendment
If there is a possibility of several things going wrong, the one that will cause the most damage will be the one to go wrong.

2nd Amendment
If you realize that there are three possible ways in which something can go wrong, and cover them all, then a fourth, unprepared for way, will miraculously appear out of thin air.

3rd Amendment
When something breaks, the parts damaged are in direct proportion to their value.

4th Amendment
The failure does not appear until the machinery has passed its final inspection.

5th Amendment
When you drop a part, it always rolls into the darkest corner.

Last Amendment to Murphy's law
Any attempt to print out this copy of Murphy's law will crash the computer.

Murphy’s Laws And How Everything Goes Wrong 

Murphy’s Law

 If anything can go wrong, it will.

 If anything just cannot go wrong, it will anyway.

 If there is a possibility of several things going wrong, the one that will cause the most damage will be the first one to go wrong.

 Corollary: If there is a worse time for something to go wrong, it will happen then.* If everything seems to be going well, you have obviously overlooked something.

 Left to themselves, things tend to go from bad to worse.

 Nature always sides with the hidden flaw.

 Nothing is as easy as it looks.

 Everything takes longer than you think.

 If you perceive that there are four possible ways in which a procedure can go wrong, and circumvent these, then a fifth way, unprepared for, will promptly develop.

 It is impossible to make anything foolproof because fools are so ingenious.

 Whenever you set out to do something, something else must be done first.

 Every solution breeds new problems.

Addition to Murphy’s Laws
 In nature, nothing is ever right. Therefore, if everything is going right … something is wrong.

Cheop’s Law
 Nothing ever gets build on schedule or within budget.

Rule of Accuracy
 When working toward the solution of a problem, it always helps if you know the answer.

Pudder’s Laws
 Anything that begins well ends badly.

 Anything that begins badly ends worse.

Gumperson’s Law
 The probability of anything happening is in inverse ratio to its desirability.

Finagle’s Fourth Law
 Once a job is fooled up, anything done to improve it will only make it worse.

Murphy’s Law of Thermodynamics
 Things get worse under pressure.

Quantization Revision of Murphy’s Laws
 Everything goes wrong all at once.

Murphy’s Constant
 Matter will be damaged in direct proportion to its value

The Murphy Philosophy
 Smile . . . tomorrow will be worse.

You can go anywhere you want if you look serious and carry a clipboard.

Eat one live toad the first thing in the morning and nothing worse will happen to you the rest of the day.

Never ask two questions in a business letter. The reply will discuss the one you are least interested in, and say nothing about the other.

When the bosses talk about improving productivity, they are never talking about themselves.

To err is human, to forgive is not company policy.

Anyone can do any amount of work provided it isn't the work he is supposed to be doing.

Important letters that contain no errors will develop errors in the mail.

The last person that quit or was fired will be the one held responsible for everything that goes wrong - until the next person quits or is fired.

There is never enough time to do it right the first time, but there is always enough time to do it over.

The more pretentious a corporate name, the smaller the organization. (For instance, The Murphy Center for Codification of Human and Organizational Law, contrasted to IBM, GM, AT&T ...).

No one gets sick on Wednesdays.

When confronted by a difficult problem you can solve it more easily by reducing it to the question, "How would the Lone Ranger handle this?"

The longer the title, the less important the job.
