A few weeks ago, I ordered a Hasbro “Joy for All” robotic cat. I made a video about un-boxing the cat with a few notes about living with him.
I was watching a movie recently and it struck me that people were panicking when they could choose not to panic.
Joe: “Can you lend me $10 until payday?” Moe: “Sure. When’s payday?” Joe: “How should I know? You’re the one with the job!”
You don’t have to be a workaholic to constantly improve yourself. In fact, it’s human nature to keep your mind engaged. And that means constantly improving yourself.
I was in a hurry taking my daughter to school. I made a u-turn but realized I shouldn’t have. I said, “Oh no. I think I just made an illegal U-Turn.” My daughter said, “I’m sure it’s okay. The police car behind you just did the same thing!” 🙂
Everyday, we look at the high priority things and don’t do them because they take time. And since we’re focused on the calendar and the clock, time is so precious that we don’t make time to do what’s important!
I asked my neighbor why his dog keeps running in circles. He said, “He’s a watch dog. He’s winding himself up.” 🙂
One of my favorite rules of life is Slow down, get more done. This is certainly an example of that. In the end, you get a lot more done when you only try to do one thing at a time.
Cowhand: “It looks like you’re putting the saddle on backward.” Dude: “What makes you say that? You don’t even know which way I’m going!” 🙂
Perhaps we need to be a little kinder about imperfections, both in ourselves and in others. Perhaps we should focus on the interesting story. After all, perfection is a lot less interesting.
