Get real (interested)

To appreciate nonsense requires a serious interest in life.

To the crazy ones

No i’m not. Why? Not listening to your words bro, i’m listening to your actions.

To the crazy ones.

Sure, they can be annoying.

But they move things forward.

They fail.

But they keep moving forward.

It’s helpful to remember that everyone is annoying in their own unique way.

Might as well cheer for the crazy ones who improve humanity, or at the very least, improve their own humanity.

She’s always been unconventional

She’s always been unconventional.

Who?

The one’s we think of as misfits.

The crazy ones.

The outliers.

They disagree with us.

They challenge us.

They annoy us.

They don’t do things the right way.

How crazy is too crazy?

Catholic Lector
Yesterday at 8:45am Mass.

 

Lector reader
i practiced from this piece of paper. After 58 years on our planet, 30 years at Disney, 18 years as a speaker and advisor, i consider myself decently grounded and focused. To teach is to learn twice.

 

How crazy is too crazy?

Las Vegas has deeply stirred our Nation’s emotions.

In an effort to manage my attitude, physical health, spiritual wellbeing, work quality, and home karma, i write to process on paper what i cannot find another way to process.

We commit slow personal injury to ourselves, often leading to premature “death” of our attitude, health, spirit, career, and home life, when we do these things day in and day out:

  1. Watch, read, and listen to media and people who poison our mind
  2. Eat and drink whatever we want, and find sitting a life-time activity
  3. Avoid a community of like-minded believers and secretly hate many things and people
  4. Blame, criticize, and accuse (often silently) others of holding us back at work
  5. Become attached to things, memories, and status quo

We are killing ourselves so quietly and so slowly, it’s the ultimate assassination.

And to medicate, distract, and entertain ourselves, we pick up our social media microphone and broadcast our (mostly) self-righteous, grand-standing, American values, and blah, blah, blah…

You want to get pissed off and offended about something to the point of taking a stand and taking action?

Address and remedy 1-5 above.

Then, and only then, would it make sense that yours is a voice worth listening to.

Counting down 3, 2, 1

Baby wearing headphones
Two nights ago at State Final Basketball game. What dreams from our childhood do we still cherish?

 

Counting down 3, 2, 1…

Today, tomorrow, and then my 57th birthday.

Three days from now the decade-long journey becomes more real.

Odds are decent i’ll live past 60, but it’s not a 100% guarantee.

This is why i boldly declared committed to pursuing a 10-year dream to do everything in life i want to do, as if turning 60 was my last day on earth.

In three days, there are only three years remaining.
