Seventy-Three

73 Sometimes it’s hard not to… Hard not to look at the faults of others. Hard not to be disappointed. Hard not to be negative. Hard not to get pissed off. Hard not to get down, and not look down on the upside. Sometimes it’s hard not to breakdown. Hard not to meltdown. Hard not to give up. Hard […]

72 You and I don’t know many things. For instance: You never know who may be watching you; silently observing you. You never know who may think you’re great. You never know who may think you’re a tool. You never know who you may be influencing positively or negatively. You never know who may be […]

Seventy-One

71 You shouldn’t need a fucking invite to be friendly and nice to others. << There’s irony right there… see it? Maybe I’m old fashioned. Maybe I took my mother’s expectation to treat people as I wish to be treated to heart. Maybe I believe in the value of others. Even others who have different views […]

70 Does it matter? Does any of it really matter? I guess that depends on what IT is… IT is anything that you spend significant amounts of your time on. IT is anything that you invest significant amounts of energy on. IT is anything that you care about. IT is anything that you’re passionate about. […]

69 How do you “come off” to others? What vibes do you send out? Ever really considered it? If not, you should.  These are simple questions that are often deceptively difficult to address objectively. A better question is how’s your “How?” This is asking if you’re truly aware of HOW your communication (verbal and nonverbal) is […]

Sixty-Eight

68 Does it matter to you if people “like” you? Some say it does not matter whatsoever. These types are typically very outspoken about their non-caring which is very NOT non-caring. Of course we all know some assholes that we really do not give two shits if they like us or not because… we don’t like […]

Sixty-Seven

67 Talent – something you’re born with; something you may or may not have to work at, more or less, to develop and improve.  Skill – something you’re not born with; something you must work to develop and improve.  Your combination of talent and skill that produces something unique to you is what sets you […]

Sixty-Six

66 Not a super “hot” topic, but very important nonetheless, and in my estimation, lacking considerably in many scenarios, much of the time. Consider this >> CONSIDERATION… not meant in the sense of thinking about something, but as in being considerate. As in thinking of others before ourselves. *Considerate (adjective) = being aware of and respecting […]

64 Accountability? What is it really? Is it just a check list of shit to do? Is it ensuring that you’re doing all you need to be doing? Is it some kind of Big Brother thing put in place to watch over you? Is it being held to a standard? Is it having the bar […]
