How conscious are you when another month comes to a close?

How conscious are you when another month comes to a close? This book title, in the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History’s bookstore, caught my eye.

We can easily spot the bore amongst us. Ever wonder if they think the same of us? There’s a confession below this photo…

a book’s title is designed to get you to pick it up

Two days ago was the culmination of a promise that should’ve taken four months but took four years. Afraid I was quite the bore here. But boring just got it’s ass kicked.

  1. David, eventually. This was about a promise to take a seven-year old on his first business trip when he turned eight. Four years later, when we were both in DC, it happened.

    Everything takes longer than we think, including the first book. 🙂

  2. Jeff,

    But the end result is the same because you didn’t quit when the first year passed without him going with you on the business trip. You eventually got there – 4 years, but it happened.

    Kids (and adults) seek to watch if we follow through. Great follow-through!!


  3. Bob, thanks. Didn’t quit the second or third year either. Not even after the fourth. The long way is the short cut. Peace and blessings. 🙂
