Some national parks have long waiting lists for camping reservations. When you have to wait a year to sleep next to a tree, something is wrong.

I never guess. It is a capital mistake to theorize before one has data. Insensibly one begins to twist facts to suit theories, instead of theories to suit facts.

Give a man a fish, and you'll feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and he'll buy a funny hat. Talk to a hungry man about fish, and you're a consultant.

A talent is a gift that you are born with - it's something that you can do easily and naturally such as your breathing.

A skill is something you learn to do. It may draw upon the talents.

An interest is something that draws you, that speaks to you.

An experience is something physical that you have done OR an emotional or mental perceptions that you have about something.

If you develop an ear for sounds that are musical it is like developing an ego. You begin to refuse sounds that are not musical and that way cut yourself off from a good deal of experience.

I guess all that sugar and fat jazz up the emotions because I feel much better right now than I was while last night locked post...

I would do anything that would allow me not to feel this way - I pulled my crumpled comforter down my waist, my thoughts jaded, my eyes finding hard to open up, my hands hitting the side table all over managed to look at the cell phone and it was already 1:00 PM. I woke up heavy headed, reached my closet to pull a worn pair of jeans,  my fingers ran through my disarrayed hair, I stood looking deeply  into my own eyes staring back at me in my bathroom mirror.... was I ****** all night?

I am forming an emu band - anyone else feel like killing themselves and want to wear eyeliner?

Management works in the system; Leadership works on the system.
You can’t talk your way out of what you’ve behaved yourself into.
There are three constants in life... change, choice and principles.

The way we see the problem is the problem

Motivation is a fire from within. If someone else tries to light that fire under you, chances are it will burn very briefly.

While we are free to choose our actions, we are not free to choose the consequences of our actions.

Our ultimate freedom is the right and power to decide how anybody or anything outside ourselves will affect us.

It's easy to say ''no!'' when there's a deeper ''yes!'' burning inside.

~ Stephen R. Covey
