Ready. Set. Ponder.

Ready. Set.  Ponder. 

 

Ready.  Set.  Ponder.  I must thank Wanda Kubat-Nerdin - Wanda Can! for her recent post 5 Ways to Get Set GO!!!  that inspired my thinking.  Her excellent advice started with having the right attitude as you approach what is ahead with a smile.   Isn't that good advice for resolving many "issues" that we seem to face daily?  The proper attitude.  A winning mindset.   The right preparation. 

 

Sure nothing is perfect so be certain to include fun as part of your everyday activity as she advises as well.  It's important.  Even the occasional pondering requires a game plan. 

 

Although a bit different and shorter in length, this post was already in draft status as I read the February ActiveRain challenge by Richie Alan Naggar  Boast-A-Post.

 

I find  the members of ActiveRain to be quite inspiring and it seems to happen on a regular basis.   Yes, I often find pondering possible and enhanced while reading the thoughts and posts of  members of this community.  Truth be told, I could likely write dozens of posts this month for the challenge, the possibilities are that vast. 

 

Wanda's post certainly fits that requirement for me.  Her post is succinct.  Genuine.  And it's quite workable which enhances its appeal.  She demonstrates that can do attitude with her posts and her contributions in the ActiveRain Q&A Section too.   She is definitely the real deal personally and professionally.

 

As for adding my two cents, let me say this:  my investment in ActiveRain is now one that is based on time no longer a monthly sliding scale amount that was a part of AR life prior to reaching that important 500,000 point milestone.    And I believe it has been time well-spent.  I have certainly enjoyed rewards that far outweigh any and all efforts.  For that I am quite thankful.

Hello Michael Jacobs,  I ponder on a couple of thinks this morning, it is pay day on a closing and we have a snow storm but have to go.

Michael Jacobs , your post leaves much to ponder especially on a Monday Morning when many of us are into the positive equation of Ready, Set. Go.  OK, we will add Ponder to the equation and also 'Fun.'  I read somewhere that if 'fun' is not part of the picture, there is less chance for a winning outcome.

Roy Kelley - with so much inspiration to be found on AR, it's not really a challenge, per se.  

Leanne Smith - it's windy here too.  Stay grounded.    

Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP - you are definitely working with some wild creative visualization.  Impressive.  

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD - Happy Monday to you as well.

Kathy Streib - the number of such members of ActiveRain who possess such qualities are numerous.  It's a big group that consistently delivers a high quality of material.  

Georgie Hunter R(S) 58089 - my pleasure.  

James Dray - I think this challenge works on many different levels.

Hi Michael Jacobs, your selection for this month's challenge is a great one. The other day, I was just thinking what would happen if ActiveRain just shut down and we no longer had the pleasure of communicating with each other, being inspired, sharing, etc on a regular basis. Just that thought is scary!

Beth Atalay - I understand what you say but I look at it a bit differently.  While I don't wish for a disappearance of AR, the memories of this place, the people, the laughter/smiles/information shared will live on for a long time.

Oh sure the women in the photo get to race in heels. No doubt one of them could still beat the guy. LOL
