The 2 notebooks from life

sitting poolside in Orlando
Sitting poolside late yesterday afternoon for an executive coaching call.

The purging is progressing nicely. Shelves are 80% done. Yesterday i attacked the first of three 4-drawer file cabinets. The biggest “file folder” is the backup paper copies of the two lifetime quotes, sayings, and articles collection.

There’s a page per calendar day, plus some extras – about 400 pages.

Many quotes from the pre-internet easy-access decades.

What will follow in the days to come is the sharing of noteworthy quotes.

The internet makes every quote accessible. The ones shared on these blogs are the ones that crossed my path pre-internet.

Mistake, error, is the discipline through which we advance.

William Ellery Channing

To lose patience is to lose the battle.

Mahatma Gandhi

Be not impatient with thine brother, with thine neighbor, and – most of all – with thine self.

Edgar Cayce

A.R.E.

thank you note
A neighbor drew this image of our new home in 1992. She then made a box of note cards out of it. Used one yesterday.

A.R.E.

The free, inexhaustible fuel.

  • Appreciation.
  • Recognition.
  • Encouragement.

While the four remodeling crew workers (including the owner) greatly appreciated the generous cash gift they individually received, they came back inside the house to thank me for the sentiments i wrote on each of their cards.

A few specific, sincere, and timely sentiments on each card.

It touched them.

And surprisingly, because i didn’t expect them to do what they did, that touched me.

In the giving we receive. Crazy, i know.

This Is Just For Me

Love note for a travelin’ man

love notes
seemingly insignificant note

On the way to Orlando airport yesterday, I took 20 minutes at Gold’s Gym to squeeze in a much needed strength workout. Returning to the car to continue on, I noticed the above note on the windshield. While driving to the dentist, unbeknownst to me, my wife and son snuck the note while I was inside. Is this what they mean by “life is good”?
