you grow old because you stop laughing."
~ Keynote Speaker, Michael Pritchard

"Everyone has talent;
what is rare is the courage
to follow the talent
to the dark places where it leads."
~Author, Erica Jong
 
Your action for today

"The indispensable first step to getting
the things you want out of life is this:
decide what you want."
~ Presidential Speech Writer, Actor and Author, Ben Stein
 
 
Your action for today

something you want
that you don't yet have

Once you "put it out there",

active rain: Take Action: TODAY! - 08/31/20 06:42 AM
 
 
"A year from now you will wish you had started today."
~ Community Activist, Karen Lamb
 
Your action for today is
to pick one of the things on your wish list
and take the first step towards achieving it.
For me, it must be continuing the book I'm working on as Mimi Foster 
so kindly nudged me about this weekend-publically on Active Rain, 🙄😂🤣.
Procrastination is caused by the fear of the chnage that comes from success.
The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago, or today. I will start today.

"Not  everything  happens  for  the  best.
However, there is some good that
can be derived from every event."
~ Philosopher, James K. Feibleman
 
Your action for today
is to think of something positive
you have gotten out of
a negative experience.
 
 
I have lived this philosophy-sometimes begrudgingly.
Hated going through most of my storms,
some felt as if they'd be the end of me.
But, I survived and thrived
from the new growth of a few and
learned helpful-hard lessons from all.
Here's the key phrase:
I chose to learn the lesson,
because I'd already paid the tuition.

"Plenty of people miss their share of happiness,
not because they never found it,
but because they didn't stop to enjoy it."
~Writer and Publisher, William Feather
 
Your action for today is to enjoy a simple pleasure
such as a rich tasting cappuccino,
a quiet stroll or a good book.
And celebrate your accomplishments.
I do something special every closed escrow to 
be commeorate, be grateful for and to savor the moment.
"This is partly why I work so hard" as I toast my bride
at a fancy meal out. Well, these days fancy take-out. 😷

But they are far less than the long-range risks
and costs of comfortable inaction."

active rain: Take Action: Evict the Anger - 08/26/20 07:25 AM

"When you hold resentment toward another,
you are bound to that person or condition
by an emotional link that is stronger than steel.
Forgiveness is the only way
to dissolve that link and get free."
~ Author, Catherine Ponder
 
Your action for today
is to see if you are holding a grudge
against someone and choose to forgive them. 
 
 
As the landlord of my heart and mind, I'm learning
to evict my anger and never rent space to hate.
I saved my now 18 year marriage through forgiveness
and I freed myself of childhood anger by forgiving someone
that didn't even know I did forgive them. … (7 comments)

active rain: Take Action: Lighten Up Man - 08/25/20 06:16 AM
 
"Managing to have a sense of humor
makes it much easier to manage people."
~ Psychologist, Steve Wilson
 
Your action for today
is to have a good laugh about
one of your funny quirks.
 
 
 I have discovered in both business ownership and community leadership,
levity goes a long way with people's learning and loyalty.
Real estate is serious business, but its not life or death,
and it can even be fun...remember fun?
Therefore we need to lighten up and deliver it with a smile.
While we can and should take the responsibility of it seriously;
 levity can be the lubricant for its smoother execution and delivery.
So, lighten up man! Don't take yourself so seriously.😉

Your action for today is to do something kind for a stranger.
For example, if you see a homeless person,
look them in the eyes and connect with them.
 
My business partner often says, "80% done and lets go!"
