Being a public company is really terrible for most companies. I’d say Facebook and Google have done a pretty good job of standing up to the incredible quarterly pressure to hit numbers, but most companies – and I’ve observed a lot now – don’t do a very good job of that.
I feel like I have a pretty good head on my shoulders about what to expect and how to come in and work as a veteran.
I’m the one who made many of the bold comments that we’d seen the technologies from AMD as pretty good. Their technology in many areas was leading. But those are transient.
All my kids were raised on computers: They were home-schooled on the Internet, so they’re pretty good at that stuff. And I’m proud of them, but I don’t really keep up with it.
I expected to be a pretty good NBA point guard and hopefully win a championship. But MVP and all this stuff? Not really.
In Spain, we have a pretty good league – for me, I think it’s the second-best league in the world. They play tough there, they play aggressive. The big difference is that we play only one game a week in Spain, maybe two.
Our problem with President Obama isn’t that he’s a bad person. By all accounts, he too is a good husband, and a good father – and thanks to lots of practice, a pretty good golfer.
I firmly believe I never had too much of an opportunity after I left Cleveland. I was behind Jamaal Charles at Kansas City. I didn’t get too much playing time. I felt when I got in I did well. And then I was in Tampa and never really got to touch the field because of Doug Martin. He’s pretty good.
I’ve always been a pretty good athlete.
I do love my country. I don’t think I’m particularly a good American. I don’t know what makes a good American. Other than somebody who – I like people who let other people alone. I think that’s a pretty good American. And I keep my hands to myself. So I’m an OK American.
If I like something, it seems a pretty good bet that other people will, too.
We had a pretty good life, growing up in Taiwan, and I think my dad really made a concerted effort to say hey, we’re going to take a chance and go halfway around the world so that my kids can have more opportunities.
More often than not as a quarterback, your performance is a reflection of the guys around you. I’ve been fortunate to be around some pretty good guys.
I went into NXT with no expectations. That’s what I was told when I was hired – have no expectations, just do the best I could – and that’s always what I’ve done for the last fifteen years. That’s what I did, and you know, it’s obviously working out pretty good.
HAG Records, is a company that I’ve owned. I’ve had a couple of gospel releases on it. We developed a pretty good distribution setup there and we do have something to use in case they don’t want to sign us.
I think I proved what I always believed. That I’m pretty good.
I think generally I’m a pretty good person if I had to grade myself. Or toot my own horn.
The weird thing about my relationship with Reince is we were pretty good friends when I was a political donor writing checks to the RNC. But once I was about to enter the administration, for whatever reason, it was a little more adversarial.
I’ve played a lot of bad guys, and I’m pretty good at leaving my work at the office. And I look at acting as having a certain sort of therapeutic nature to it.
About four days a week, I do pretty good at having a morning prayer time. But even at that, it’s a rambling sort of thing. What I have learned to do better is to try to keep my mind turned toward God and ear inclined toward God throughout the day, and I think I’m doing better at that, but I’ve got a long way to go.
What strikes me is that ‘XIII’ looks like a movie. The shot making is movie-like, which is kind of fun – the kind of playful action movie shot making is pretty, is pretty good. What’s also great about this game is its style and interesting story-line.
There’s a lot of animals in the open ocean – most of them that make light. And we have a pretty good idea, for most of them, why. They use it for finding food, for attracting mates, for defending against predators. But when you get down to the bottom of the ocean, that’s where things get really strange.
The Hall of Fame is pretty good at preparation and getting you ready for what to expect.
I look for something unique, and I look for people who haven’t reached their potential. I think I’m pretty good at developing talent.
There’s nothing I really want to accomplish. I already set my family up pretty good right now.
I’m pretty good with languages.
That’s a beautiful thing about India, they got such a big pool of players to call upon. If somebody gets injured, the replacements are generally pretty good.
But you know, I have a pretty good relationship with the press and the paparazzi. It’s just when they step over the line that, you know, enough’s enough.
If there’s unemployment, having the government help reduce that unemployment, increase employment directly is a pretty good idea. It’s not driving out competition; it’s not crowding out.
If you look at suburban education in New Jersey and New York, it’s pretty strong, intact, doing a pretty good job. You cap taxes for those communities, can we reasonably predict it’s going to be as strong 20 years from now?
For a quarter of a century, I’ve been playing baseball for pay. It has been pretty good pay, most of the time. The work has been hard, but what of it? It’s been risky. I’ve broken both my legs. I’ve sprained everything I’ve got between my ankles and my disposition. I’ve dislocated my joints and fractured my pride.
I’m aware of how lucky I am. Being able to make pretty good money, and get to do a lot of fun work, and at the same time I’m not besieged by photographers.
My sister Susan, who was the first one, was pretty good in mathematics and then chess, and my father chose chess because it was easier to measure the results.
I’m pretty good for an old geek.
The story was such that I couldn’t make a graceful ending and then make a graceful new beginning. I could have, but I didn’t want to. So, it isn’t the most graceful way of writing a story. This new story is, I think, is pretty good stuff. I’m pleased with it anyway.
If there’s one thing, I’ve been pretty good at evaluating people.
We had a pretty good lead, so why push it.
Well, rather than to give you my impression on Los Angeles, per se, my older sister‘s husband is and American, therefore I have a pretty good idea of the, perhaps the characteristics of Americans in general.
Two of my sons are themselves filmmakers, and we can’t afford them nor they us. They work in the real world and earn money and are pretty good at it.
