And our backs get straighter with practice

Mimicry is the progenitor of bias.

The really important stuff we have to imagine on our own.

Of course that takes practice and practice and more practice.

And it must be done when no one else is around.

OPPORTUNITY NOW

OPPORTUNITY NOW

Opportunity exists only in the present moment.

Opportunity is Formless.

Accepting Opportunity is the act of Adding Form to Formlessness.

Opportunity is not something that comes only once in a lifetime.

Opportunity does not present only to the Lucky, the Gifted and the Wise.

Opportunity arrives twenty-four hours a day in the form of pictures, ideas and dreams.

The primary impediment to the recognition of opportunity is a lack of self-awareness. Though this condition is normal and provides an occasional benefit, it sometimes prevents us from the acknowledgement of the millions of opportunities to improve our quality of life that arrive within each of us every day of our lives.

So, how does one prevent the pain of missed opportunities? There is no such danger; one does not grieve the unknown unless they enjoy grief.

To experience opportunity, we need only do what is before us.

AND TRUST.

Thirty spokes share the wheel’s hub;
It is the center hole that makes it useful.

Shape clay into a vessel;
It is the space within that makes it useful.

Cut doors and windows for a room;
It is the holes that make it useful,
Lao Tsu translation by Gia Fu Feng.

 

Each morning I greet the day by committing to living it.

Each morning I sit at my desk and repeat that commitment.

My commitment is not to the Doing but to my Being.

To say “That is all.” is often thought to mean “Not much.”

“Why is that?” I wonder as I open Outlook.
