Less Is More…More or Less.

Let your yes be yes and your no, no. My attempt to say more while not.

The Classroom of Awareness

There is as much to be learned simply from watching the mistakes and faults of those around you as there is learned through instruction and study. It requires an awareness of who you are now and a decision about who you will and won’t become moving forward.

First Attempts

“Anything worth doing, is worth doing poorly first.” – Dan Miller, polio survivor & author, Living, Laughing & Loving Life

Limitations Can Be Good

“The difference between stupidity and genius is that genius has its limits.” – Albert Einstein

8 Cardinal Virtues

The eight cardinal virtues of George Washington Carver for his students at the Tuskegee Institute:

Be clean both inside and out.
Neither look up to the rich nor down on the poor.
Lose, if need be, without squealing.
Win without bragging.
Always be considerate of women, children, and older people.
Be too brave to lie.
Be too generous to cheat.
Take your share of the world and let others take theirs.

Pain Is Knowledge

“Everything you need to know, you’ll figure it out when you need to know it. Even if you miscalculate and make the wrong decision, you needed to know that. I always say that, Pain is knowledge rushing in to fill a gap. When you stub your toe on the foot of the bed, that was a gap in knowledge. And the pain is a lot of information really quick. That’s what pain is.” – Jerry Seinfeld, Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee, Trevor Noah episode

The Only Failure That Matters

“There is only one real failure in life that is possible, and that is, not to be true to the best one knows.”  –Frederic William Farrar (1831 – 1903)

Binary State

I would think it challenging to be all you can be when you start blurring the lines of who you were created to be.

Your Best Work Is Not Behind You

     “We are born at the rise of the curtain and we die with its fall, and every night in the presence of our patrons we write our new creation, and every night it is blotted out forever; and of what use is it to say to audience or to critic, “Ah, but you should have seen me last Tuesday?”” – Jules Renard, French Writer

 

 

You’re Wrong: an F.A.Q.

A pretty clever perspective!

Proper Discord

Q. Am I really wrong?

Yes

Q. Are you sure?

Absolutely

Q. Can you prove that I’m wrong?

Yes, but, you’ll have to agree in advance what proof looks like, otherwise you could just move the goalposts after the game.

Q. How come I have so much evidence that I’m right?

That’s confirmation bias. Your brain carefully files away all the reasons you might be right, and disregards all the reasons you might be wrong.

Q. How come so many people agree with me?

They’re wrong too.

Q. They can’t all be wrong, can they?

Most people are wrong about most things most of the time. If there’s one remarkable discovery to be made in the study of science, religion and philosophy, it’s that being wrong about almost everything does people so little harm. The fact that every scientific discovery since the stone age has only doubled our life expectancy…

God Does Better When We Are Broken

“Because I don’t think God trusts just anybody with so much heartache. The world has not yet seen what God can do with a man who gives both halves of a broken heart to him. And I don’t doubt that a man like that can change the world…or at least a little part of it.”
Chris Fabry, Almost Heaven
