My eyes were bigger than my stomach, and ultimately, i couldn’t eat lunch and simultaneously watch the
. Apple Keynote

That whole slogan about “Today is the first day of the rest of your life”?
Has this ever really meant anything to you, or has it always remained some lame, sugary saying?
December 31, 2001, the reality of what was about to happen was staggering (two previous, major attempts had failed).
was the first day of the rest of this life.
The first day as a person who no longer drinks alcohol. Period.
If ya do the math, the first day started on the hardest day – the world’s biggest party night – not the day after on January one.
Hey, have a blast tonight.
And tomorrow, think about kickin’ somebody’s behind.
Get Used To This?
Yesterday’s post wasn’t inferring The Dalai Lama was a jerk.
It was inferring people who have made significant changes in world history were.
Mostly, these game changers went counter-culture, making others angry, frustrated or uncomfortable.
It’s not uncommon for people to try to make you feel like a jerk, when your intent is to push boundaries. Maybe it’s fear, ignorance, resistance to change, jealousy.
People with the vision to push, are often labeled crazy, heretic, strange.
I have learned a long and hard lesson, there’s only one solution.
Get used to it.
Look A Little Closer...
Because at the end of the day, without beating around the bush, only three percent of humans are driven enough to be transformational game changers.
And this is true in the most basic of circumstances, changing ourselves.
Let it begin with me.
Let it begin with you.
We can readily see (we humans are such critics, eh?) the plank in another’s eye and go a lifetime without seeing our own.
“Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes – the ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules and they have no respect for the status quo. You can praise them, disagree with them, quote them, disbelieve them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing that you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things.” – Apple Computer ad, 1997
I feel like I’m lookin’ in the mirror as I read that.
