Take Action: Dance!

"When you stumble,

make it part of the dance."


An Unknown Author



Your action for today

is to think of a time

when you failed to

accomplish something or

had an unexpected loss

and from that

you gained something valuable.


When I was a Mobile DJ, we used to have a saying:

"Hey DJ, Use It!"

Which meant, whatever happens,

planned or unplanned,

make it part of the show...

because the show must go on!



Design An Extraordinary Day!

Hello Thomas, Thanks for your daily blogs, I use to be good on a dance floor and could fake it, not much anymore.

Really like the sentiment of this one - and the photo. Stumbles are part of a well-designed choreography, right. Haha.

Hello Thomas - I am a fan of quotes as you may have noticed and it seems "dance" plays a role in the way words express behavior beyond movement.   That said - I possess two left feet in dance.  And in other modes of movement if I think about it.

Hi Thomas,
There is something valuable to be learned from everything, isn't there?  It's all part of the show.  😊

That photo is right our of someone;s wedding and the bride has a look of pure joy on her face. The tone of the blog brings to mind the expression, never let them see you sweat.  If we do our job right, we need to make the hiccup part of the plan.

Yes it was, the photograpoher is a friend of mine and that was a wedding we worked together here in La Jolla back about 12 years ago when I still DJ'd...a career that was so much fun!

Hi Thomas, 

Now that is a wedding I would like to be at.  That photographer really captured the essence of your quote as well.  Whether it is a positive or negative moment we can always learn something.  But definitely, we need to take a positive learning experience from an epic fail.

Thank You yes, the photograpoher is a friend of mine and that was a wedding we worked together here in La Jolla back about 12 years ago when I still DJ'd. I used that photo in a lot of wedding ads.

Hi Thomas,  Love the quote - stumbles are a part of life - but the important thing is to make the most of it and dance on.

Oh Thomas had to laugh.....gotta roll with the punches quite often. And honestly it's quite fun to turn things around in a blink of an eye!  I've been caught straight out down and out in a moment or more with teaching CE courses this year.....things change on a dime and I just roll with the punches and find another 'dance' per se.

Hi Thomas... I'm all about dancing! Having gone through two knee surgeries recently and now awaiting a hip replacement, my physical dancing is a bit limited these days... but I'm still dancing in my head.

Very good posting, Thomas ... we will all stumble or fail at something, so why NOT learn from that, get that next step out of the way that leads to the perfect dance!!  Reminds me of the old SNL skits, when Steve Martin would perform his "Happy Feet" dance.  Keep moving...

Hi Thomas, love this sentiment. Many times when you have your oops moment, no one would even notice unless you call attention to it.

Good morning Thomas. If you saw me dance you would think I was stumbling. Then again maybe not! Enjoy your day!

Upon stumbling, I have been known on occasion to say "I meant to do that!" Haha, so yes, make those stumbles all part of the dance.
