A stone in your hand beats an insidious habit

Our mindset can be blind to the same questionable behaviors we easily identify in others…

This Mid Life Celebration post (about the chicken and pig commitment to breakfast) from two days ago prompted a brief conversation which included the following:

Eric:   …I think bacon cooks better in the oven.

me:   Probably…1 button and 3 minutes later…

Eric:   …oh yes the instant gratification generation

me:   Car vs horse, internet vs book, ovens vs fires, farming vs grocery store, Amazon vs main street…be careful in a glass house when you have a stone in your hand. 😁

It was fun to .think .differently

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.

Must. Write. Second. Book.

Must. Write. Second. Book.

One month ago i thought i could begin on April Fools Day 2016 and accomplish two ambitious goals:

  1. Begin and finish the second book’s storyboard
  2. Get the first draft edited and have it be ready for formatting.

One out of two ain’t bad.

We can make progress or we can make excuses.

Whichever one we pick becomes our habit.

Dear readers (and especially Donna), slow and steady wins the race

Farm covered in snow
Trading 80 degrees for 8 degrees for the next four days

 

Was asked yesterday why the cryptic nature of some posts?

This created a moment of pause and reflection. You know the kind.

When mystery is intentional, it is called out specifically, when it is unintentional it could be because:

  • the writer is playing it safe (better safe than sorry – a motto or a way of life?)
  • the author is talking to himself (knowing we all have similar thoughts) (be patient, please)
  • the author embraces the painfully slow process of transformation
  • it’s kind of fun to do the impossible

In hearing, we never remember, in discovering it ourselves, we never forget.
