Check out this cool list of great quotes and sayings about food and drink that have been designed specifically as desktop backgrounds and mobile wallpapers, so you can add ’em to your device to brighten up your day (simply click on the image to go to the download page).

If you’re like me then you love food; whether it’s enjoying a Sunday roast around a big fire on a cold winter’s day, or having a picnic on a green lawn in the shade of a big tree. And, of course, what would food be without drink? I’m not sure I could get through a full day’s work without my morning coffee.. oh yes, and the early afternoon booster cup too. Not to mention the occasional sneaky glass of vino in the evenings with dinner.

But food and drink isn’t only about sustenance. There’s a lot of humour and wisdom to be found in what you eat so have fun checking out these beautifully designed wallpapers and let me know if you’ve got other funny sayings about food so we can add ’em to this list.

Coffee; Chocolate; Men…

Coffee; chocolate; men. The richer the better.

Coffee, chocolate, men

    Prim and proper, but with a touch of devilish attitude. A great wallpaper for anyone who loves a touch of retro.

    Depresso…

    Depresso: That feeling you get when you’ve run out of coffee.

    Depresso; that feeling when you've run out of coffee

      Well, I guess this one goes without saying. As someone who runs out of coffee on a regular basis I like to keep a box of teabags handy – not quite the same thing but it’ll do in a pinch.

      Donut talk to me…

      Donut talk to me.

      Donut talk to me

        Of course, not; I’m busy eating my donut. Talk later.

        Not all girls are made of…

        Not all girls are made of sugar & spice and everything nice. Some girls are made of sarcasm and wine and everything fine.

        Not all girls are made of sugar and spice

          The trick is not to be completely made out of wine. Everything in moderation as they say.

          When life hands you lemons…

          When life hands you lemons grab the salt and tequila.

          When life hands you lemons

            I love this one. A good attitude can help you go far in this life. But go easy on the tequila.

            Tonight’s forecast…

            Tonight’s forecast: 99% chance of wine.

            99% chance of wine

              That’s been the forecast for quite some time now. Nothing like a relaxing glass of vino in the evenings.

              Women are like teabags…

              Women are like teabags. You never know how strong they are until you put them in hot water.

              Women are like teabags

                I’m not particularly surprised this saying comes from Eleanor Roosevelt. She’s right of course. But I guess this saying applies to anyone. We don’t really know our own strength until it’s really put to the test.

                Time to drink champagne…

                Time to drink champagne and dance on the table.

                Time to drink champagne

                  Ok, so not every saying has to be filled with deep meaning. Sometimes you just gotta let your hair down and have a good party with a couple of your best friends. No harm in having a bit of bubbly at the same time, right?

                  So that’s my list of favourite sayings. Hopefully I’ve managed to get a decent balance between funny and serious, deep and silly. There’s a world of great quotes out there to choose from, but these, for me, are the best and most attractive options for wallpapers on my PC.

                  What are your favourite quotes about food and drink (any drink, it doesn’t have to be about coffee or wine)? Share ’em in the comments and we’ll hopefully be able to convince the good people at Strange Fox to design a new bunch of free downloadable wallpapers.

                  Why Assuming Positive Intent Is an Amazing Productivity Driver

                  Why Assuming Positive Intent Is an Amazing Productivity Driver

                  Assuming positive intent is an important contributor to quality of life.

                  Most people appreciate the dividends such a mindset produces in the realm of relationships. How can relationships flourish when you don’t assume intentions that may or may not be there? And how their partner can become an easier person to be around as a result of such a shift? Less appreciated in the GTD world, however, is the productivity aspect of this “assume positive intent” perspective.

                  Advertising

                  Most of us are guilty of letting our minds get distracted, our energy sapped, or our harmony compromised by thinking about what others woulda, coulda, shoulda.  How we got wronged by someone else.  How a friend could have been more respectful.  How a family member could have been less selfish.

                  However, once we evolve to understanding the folly of this mindset, we feel freer and we become more productive professionally due to the minimization of unhelpful, distracting thoughts.

                  Advertising

                  The leap happens when we realize two things:

                  1. The self serving benefit from giving others the benefit of the doubt.
                  2. The logic inherent in the assumption that others either have many things going on in their lives paving the way for misunderstandings.

                  Needless to say, this mindset does not mean that we ought to not confront people that are creating havoc in our world.  There are times when we need to call someone out for inflicting harm in our personal lives or the lives of others.

                  Advertising

                  Indra Nooyi, Chairman and CEO of Pepsi, says it best in an interview with Fortune magazine:

                  My father was an absolutely wonderful human being. From ecent emailhim I learned to always assume positive intent. Whatever anybody says or does, assume positive intent. You will be amazed at how your whole approach to a person or problem becomes very different. When you assume negative intent, you’re angry. If you take away that anger and assume positive intent, you will be amazed. Your emotional quotient goes up because you are no longer almost random in your response. You don’t get defensive. You don’t scream. You are trying to understand and listen because at your basic core you are saying, ‘Maybe they are saying something to me that I’m not hearing.’ So ‘assume positive intent’ has been a huge piece of advice for me.

                  Advertising

                  In business, sometimes in the heat of the moment, people say things. You can either misconstrue what they’re saying and assume they are trying to put you down, or you can say, ‘Wait a minute. Let me really get behind what they are saying to understand whether they’re reacting because they’re hurt, upset, confused, or they don’t understand what it is I’ve asked them to do.’ If you react from a negative perspective – because you didn’t like the way they reacted – then it just becomes two negatives fighting each other. But when you assume positive intent, I think often what happens is the other person says, ‘Hey, wait a minute, maybe I’m wrong in reacting the way I do because this person is really making an effort.

                  “Assume positive intent” is definitely a top quality of life’s best practice among the people I have met so far. The reasons are obvious. It will make you feel better, your relationships will thrive and it’s an approach more greatly aligned with reality.  But less understood is how such a shift in mindset brings your professional game to a different level.

                  Not only does such a shift make you more likable to your colleagues, but it also unleashes your talents further through a more focused, less distracted mind.
