Everybody thinks they’re the good guy

Dear Son, you have heard me say that the three tools of my trade are:

  1. common sense
  2. paradox
  3. questions

Here is a woman who uses paradox and it stopped me in my tracks because of it’s power.

She revealed the paradox with a statement, “Everybody believes they are the good guy”.

 

 

Want to disarm your opponent?

Listen to them.

On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.

Look yourself in the eye & answer yes to two questions

Art at Morimoto at Disney Springs

Look yourself in the eye & answer yes to two questions:

  1. I’m doing my best work every single day?
  2. I am satisfied?

Caution (and we all know this):

Waiting and doing nothing are the twin siblings of self destruction.

Suck the marrow out of life

Sucking the marrow out of life… Robin Williams committed suicide yesterday (August 11, 2014).

The CNN story is here.

Live like you mean it.

Life is not a dress rehearsal.

100 was impossible let alone 1826

orlando motivational speaker's personal Facebook update

 

(photo: Shared the 1,826-day posting streak on personal FB update yesterday)

Today is dedicated to going after our impossible dreams.

1826

The fact that MLC has written five daily posts for five consecutive years is astonishing.

The emotional, personal, ripple effect from today’s posts (day 1827) has been fun in a weird, unexpected way. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

It was simply a bold, 100-day personal challenge to break the insidiously well-developed habit of not writing. At all. Like 30-years worth of nothing.

Anyway, glad to take the risk.
