Our acts can be no wiser than our thoughts

Moon set behind us. Who looks back when the sunrise is so stunning? Almost no one.

Even more context.

Our acts can be no wiser than our thoughts.

Think about that.

Make controlling your thoughts a habit and you make controlling your actions a habit.

Profound.

The ball is always in our court.

More action, doing better things, more often.

When the student is mentally ready

Digital learning (and teaching) gets easier and more significant every year. Photo: iPhone XS screen.

 

When the student is ready the teacher will appear.

Are you ready?

This is classic wisdom:

“You can’t control what happens to you, only how you respond.”

 

My five daily, differently-themed blog posts all carry this wise approach to life.

We think (MidLifeCelebration.com).

We move (Lane8.org).

We feel (JeffNoel.org).

We work (JungleJeff.net).

We dwell (JeffNoel.com).

When, or if, you feel ready, you have thousands (17.5k as of today) of posts to stimulate your learning.

See what you want to see from this post

Ocoee High School
Yesterday morning at 9am. Low turnout is obvious. This is a mind-bender: The only people who know, know from being there to see it. We stumbled upon this relatively obscure opportunity.

 

pressure washing driveway
Yesterday afternoon at 3pm. Without the contrast of pressure washing, the drive didn’t appear dirty.

 

As a general rule, humans will not see what they don’t expect to see.

A group of radiologists examined X-rays that had a gorilla image 48x larger than the cancer cells they were looking for.

They didn’t see the “massive” gorilla under the microscope..

Why would they, gorillas are never there.

We simply don’t see things that don’t fit the pattern we’re expecting.

Same with our attitude.

See what you want to see from this post.

What may be hidden in plain sight is obvious.

You are in charge of what you see in the world.

Everything Is Important

Facebook mind

Traffic backup at Epcot toll plaza
Yesterday on our way to lunch at Epcot. It was a block-out (no go) day for getting family in.

 

Vehicle window messages
We can already see the writing on the wall – their Facebook updates…

 

Facebook mind, aka Facebook attitude.

You either control Facebook or Facebook controls you, at least for me.

Our attitude about our ability to be in control, or to be controlled, by social media is our responsibility. Challenge is, social norms allow overuse to be acceptable.

Even though i was ineffective at keeping up with everyone, i still tried – as if some miracle would happen. Or as if in my trying, i wouldn’t have to feel guilty for missing important moments in people’s lives.

Update: Today Feb 23…wow, reading this now, 100 days after the fact, i must have really been struggling…rather than edit today’s five posts, i’m leaving them as is – a moment in time, an internal struggle captured “on paper”.

Five Daily Blogs, Seriously?

Each day is a clean slate

WPS track
yesterday morning before sunrise.

 

Each day is a clean slate.

But our mornings are so busy that we don’t take time to get centered before we get going.

There are a few freaks who believe that balance must be the daily habit.

Never in a million years right?

Self-fulling prophecy got it’s name because it’s true.

But we can retrain our habits by rethinking our priorities.

For example, if you are not going to exercise today, it’s because you have intentionally thought through that today is a rest day.

Of course, there are rare, emergency circumstances that warrant not exercising on days that are not designated for rest. We should allow for about one every month or so.
