Nobody but you

Push yourself softly, early and often. Allow the magic of compound interest to fuel your personal growth.

Do not broadcast your motives

Outgoing people are perfect for hospitality — that’s why it works in Orlando and other tourist places like Glacier National Park.

Generally, outgoing people should keep to themselves in their local community.

Not everyone likes a friendly, outgoing person with super good and decent intentions — it’s suspect.

Once you become suspect, closed-minded people have no interest in you helping them. Why? Because they can’t envision a future that’s not only better than now, but much better than now.

Talk is so cheap, it’s free

Nothing changes if nothing changes.
Jeff Noel diagram about action catalysts
Some compelling catalyst has to happen from talk or nothing changes.

Talk is so cheap, it’s free.

Remember kids, you get what you pay for.

Night notes to self

Mid Life Celebration book
New York City subway wall.

Middle of night awoke with this self-conversation…

2 questions…

1. Does this sound unreasonable?

2. What are you prepared to do to achieve it?

Unpacked…(remember, it was 2am)…

1. Wouldn’t it be great to live with mental vibrancy, physical vibrancy, spiritual vibrancy, work vibrancy, and home life vibrancy?

2. Now, what’s your answer?

Assuming your answer is yes, what are you prepared to do to achieve it?

Because, you do believe you deserve it, and, that it would be wonderful to live that way. Then the only question really, is what are you willing to do next? And for how long?
