One thing I've learned in the past couple of weeks through working with a professional life coach is to commit to goals and action intentions verbally, as well establish clearly defined and somewhat ambitious goals for ourselves and others. I also learned another individual (a well known professional speaker and social media "guru", ___________, if you want to market information and get people interested in what you have to say, promise them a hand number, like 10 easy steps, or FIVE most important principles. They don't have to be rocket science, either. A good mix of common sense and brilliance suits most tastes best.
Finally, in no particular order of counting, a revelation that gave me great peace as I pondered it today...an absolute that seems to stand true, a logical paradox, a double negative...There is no problem that we cannot solve. Individually or collectively, if it cannot be solved, it is not a problem. A logical paradox, probably even a proof of the existence of God, if nature's miracles and might are not sheer force enough for the logical skeptics that lurk out there, annoying us believers with their stubborn arguments based on proofs.
There is no better joy than belief. This is another handy mantra, and joins my growing stable of conceptual themes that give me delight, chomping the intellectual and spiritual hay of my mind, along with that dear steed, Kaizen, as I desire to rope people maniacally into my scheme of improving the world one person, situation, idea at a time.
Okay, this is the quasi intellectual bullshit I was afraid of when I started this blog. Forgive the self and ego, and don't edit too much. A good blogging guideline...let's see if I can endorse it, though we do recommend editing at a second visit to consider whether the advise is really sound enough, grammar is correct, and spelling close enough to perfect to pass as an intelligent blog entry worthy of someone's too limited time online or possibly worth honing individually or collectively into some sensible, carefully crafted text or prose or manual or webpage more worthy of the space without the annoying run-on sentences of a one-fell-swoop entry, or the vapid dryness of a business or professional blog which might get sapped dry from all sense of individuality, trace of uniquenesslikeness, snipped free of ego. Now Cynicism, get back to your manger and leave the other emotions free to express!
[Ann, I DARE you to keep this blog as is...what if someone discovered it and really questioned whether you are always in your right mind, as opposed to letting the left hemisphere have a nanosecond of say in your thoughts?]
