What if our Facebook updates focused on our opportunities?
If our spotlights and lasers were focused on ourselves, we probably wouldn’t have time to worry about what other people need to change.
Our time, theoretically, would be consumed with self-improvement.
There wouldn’t be time in our day to worry about other’s (namely politicians on both sides, and in every Country, State, and local government) behavior because we’re (now) so busy transforming ourselves.
Daily writing helps me see this in myself and it’s the primary reason why i continuously write about mind, body, spirit, work, and home.
What we dislike in others is usually a negative blind spot.
What we appreciate in others is usually a positive blind spot.
i work diligently to be more accepting and forgiving of behaviors that tempt me unfavorably.
Also investing in better energy and more consistent and committed acceptance in my “gifts”.

What should we measure versus what we actually measure?
The challenge is that we can hide behind things that don’t matter nearly enough – certainly not as much as some other harder to measure and more difficult to improve metrics.
“See, my numbers have improved.”
Often what is convenient and measurable has the least impact.
Measuring my annual income doesn’t actually measure my happiness.
Measuring my body weight doesn’t measure my strength, cardio-vascular endurance, flexibility, or core.
Measuring my sense of peace and contentment, from a deep sense of contribution and balance, is challenging to quantify, but easy to feel a sense of accomplishment. Or not.
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.

Are we hell bent on eliminating as many blind spots as possible, or do we believe that we have few left that even matter?
A few months ago a family member commented that he was tired of seeing my chest on the running selfies. This was intentional and driven by feedback that i took a lot of selfies, so i was modifying them to get less face and more sweat (to illustrate the effort, commitment).
And the original point of selfies, like many others are motivated to do, was intended to be the “i was here” shot.
A few days ago, while cycling to the gym, the above selfie idea appeared out of the blue.
