Stay hungry

Stay hungry.

Never let your memories be bigger than your dreams.

When you feel stuck – and you will – don’t stay long.

Stay hungry.

Hunger helps you find a solution.

Thinking without doing equals zero

teaching model
From a chance encounter with a teacher’s trainer.

 

One of my mantras is:

If i tell the audience the answer, they’ll never remember. If i help them discover it themselves, they’ll never forget.

And, humbly, it was powerful

Calgary, Alberta from the air in Winter
On a plane, in a line, with friends, doesn’t matter, just ask…

 

Ask someone to tell you something spiritual in a random conversation and see how they react.

Just tried it and got nothing.

Totally surprised.

So it was an opportunity to demonstrate what it would look like if the roles were reversed.

And, humbly, it was powerful.

What is the meaning of life?

Most people do not have a ready, concise, and convincing answer. But some do.

Do you?

What if we did?

What we see and think is flawed because of this

Residential dirt road in Windermere Florida
Things are not always as they appear

 

We often find it easy to justify our excuses or conditions because we compare and contrast our situation against other situations.

Other situations are never as they appear to be.

Too much unknown detail is hidden from us and therefore our deductions are inaccurate.

Yet we live as if they are spot on.

How Can You Tell?

There are times you can just tell

charity love
how many seemingly insignificant opportunities slip down the drain?

Teaching last night after dinner, on the top hospital floor, I heard a helicopter. Immediately, intuitively, I said a brief prayer, knowing that it was dark, a helicopter was landing on the roof, and we were at a hospital. This couldn’t be good.

Note: Occasionally, I’ll take a moment to share why I don’t bring closure to most posts. In this example, my thinking was, “How often do we go through the motions and miss opportunities to help someone, even if only for a second”. If we could, and we don’t…why?

Bonus: And then the hope would be…will thinking about this short, pithy post prompt anyone to try harder tomorrow.
