Give Me A Break!

We hear people say this all the time, “Give me a break!”

What if, instead, people said, “Today I’m going to create my break!”

One falls prey, the other attacks.

If not you, whom? If not today, when?

All We Can Do Is Try


Yesterday, an unsolicited LinkedIn invitation reached my inbox. Being an open networker on LinkedIn and Twitter, I gladly accepted Matt’s LinkedIn invite.

Social media tools really are like anything else in life – you get out of it what you put into it. Period.

Did you know social media has surpassed pornography as the number one Internet activity?

We often hear of blind spots, mostly with a negative connotation.

But not yesterday:  “Great profile and great blogs. It seems you live your life as you present it.”

When you’re a small business startup, you are everything: Visionary, Marketing, PR, HR, Finance, Spokesperson, Ambassador, Idea Creator, Innovator, Spiritual Director, Artistic Director, Secretary, Networker, Errand Boy, Office Manager, “Gopher”, Rookie, CEO, Janitor, and everything else.

All you can do is try. But until you actually try it on your own, you have no idea.

I wouldn’t wish that on anyone.

Got resolve?

Yesterday’s post spoke of being old and being brand new. Huh?  Here’s what I meant.

After five decades, the revelation that in the big picture, what other humans think of me is really inconsequential. It’s probably the same for you too.  And if it’s not, what if it was? Seriously.

We’re all going to be dead in 100 years and no one will remember any of us. So why worry about it?  Just live a good and decent life and work hard to do the right thing – primarily, try to serve others more than yourself.

It’s probably obnoxious to some people that I write five blogs every single day.  Who gives a fu flip?

Are you poised  to transform yourself before you die?  While it doesn’t matter what others think, it certainly matters what you think.  Got resolve?

Hope Is Not A Game Plan

Hard work is a great game plan.

Hope is not a game plan.

Hope is indispensable, please don’t misunderstand the intent here.

But hope alone, is not a game plan, hard work is:

  • Vision
  • Passion
  • Selflessness
  • Love
  • Service
  • Tenacity
  • Indomitable Will

Rather try hard and fail, than to simply hope and never try hard enough.

Resist the temptation to lean on self-pity.  Click here if all you want right now is hope. You must have hope.  It’s not a game plan, but it is the start.
