Thinking is overrated

Thinking, we do way too much of that. Paralysis by analysis. The mind is a useful tool to accomplish things, make decisions and to solve problems. However sometimes you need to tell that hamster to take a break. One of the biggest obstacles we all face is we relentlessly use our minds to ruminate on the past, rehashing what has been. Either to rationalize decisions, events or outcomes, to somehow tell ourselves that we did the best we could or […]

Decisions. Decisions?

To paraphrase a quote, who would you be if you didn’t listen to the world? I am not sure what kind of place the world would be, or what kind of person I personally would be, if each of us followed our own internal path and uniquely defined ourselves on our own terms? Obviously we all need some indoctrination by our parents, society and culture, but how much of what we have been taught is right thinking? How much of […]

The Pursuit of Happiness

I am sure we all recall the quote from a certain historical document that all humans have the inalienable right to “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness”. Life and liberty are fairly easy to define and I doubt there would be too much debate over their definitions. Happiness; what the heck is happiness? Happiness is joy. What is joy? Why did the framers of the Declaration of Independence include such an innocuous and, I suspect, relative term as a […]

Words with Friends?

We often forget what the impact of the origination of language has meant to the world. Both the written and spoken word have rocketed societal progress, or demise, at hyper speed. By most accounts, communication between humans, in either written or verbal form, has existed for between 50,000 and 80,000 years. The human species has existed in our current form for about 200,000 years. There is some debate about the time, but these are fairly accurate ballpark estimates. The earth […]

Out of touch

I haven’t written a blog lately.  I had my initial flurry of activity and passion over it and then, boom, I began the doubt the relevance of my personal thoughts. I hope its simply a phase, brought on by the fact that I haven’t had much time to think or to act.  At least, that is what I rationalize to be the cause. Truthfully, deep inside, I find myself feeling out of touch with the world.  I find my opinions, […]

Incomplete?

For the longest time, I had this feeling of lack from a personal development perspective. Despite whatever accomplishment or success I might achieve in whatever endeavor, it kind of rang hollow with me. I had a chip on my shoulder, not caused by those around me, but that came from within myself. I can and will do better. I can and will be proficient. This is not my best effort. I am not enough. Early in life, to compensate for […]

Unpolished?

Where did this whole unpolished thing come from? I am a member of a Facebook group, if I haven’t been kicked out, called Ligonier and the people who love it there.  It is a fantastic group.  It is dedicated to the wonderfulness, the storybook depiction (that is based on reality) of Ligonier, that exists in all our minds (assuming you are familiar with the Ligonier Valley). As I had been following that group, I came to understand that the administrators […]

New Beginnings

I can’t remember exactly when Misty,my guru/wife, turned me on to FaceBook.  At the time, I didn’t get it.  I thought it was basically glorified chat, as in back in the early days of AOL. Over time I, obviously, warmed to the idea after some early usage and I came to find that it could be a valuable tool to gain information about your interests, make new friends, keep up with old ones, etc.  It can be as deep or […]
