An Amazing Pumpkin Carving

I am sad to see another Halloween in the books, but it’s okay, the fall is a wonderful time of year….

 

A week before Halloween, Brax and I had daddy-kid pumpkin carving night at his school and it was quite amazing to see some of the different designs that people had come up with.

 

I actually put a lot of thought and foreplanning into ours, but it didn’t look like much.

 

That’s because I made it a replica of the pumpkin from the opening credits of the original Halloween.

 

To me it was bad to the bone.

 

To others, it looked like Braxton had done it himself.

 

In life, you never know what will excite someone nor should you compare.  Comparison is the thief of happiness and comparison takes you out of the present moment.

Amazing Discoveries From My Old Notebook

In my office shed, I have notebooks dating back a decade.
In those notebooks, I have notes from my thoughts, books, DVDs and seminars.  I was and remain a serious student of life and my craft.
I fully realize that the 10,000 hour rule does apply and I chuckle when people of the next generation think they can short cut their way to world class expertise.
Anyhow, for this episode, I decided to go back through one of those old notebooks and shoot from the hip.  And there are some gems I share with you.

Idaho in New Jersey

3 years ago, Devon, Munchie and I took a vacation out to Wyoming and Idaho.

A lot of people  know this but a lot don’t know this; when we took that trip, it was booked with the idea of going out there to scout out because we thought we were going to move there.

It was really nothing more than escapism on my part.

The things we thought we could only find on the other side of the country were right here.

We found and moved into a house on the water.

But more importantly, we realized that happiness isn’t a foreign destination.

Your mind will play tricks on you and try to get you to think that you can only be happy when (you fill in the blank).

Happiness comes from freedom, play and growth.

Wherever you go, there you are.

The Average American Lives Only…

A few weeks ago, I wrote a letter to the boys about how many remaining days I had left based on projections.

 

The average American lives 28,470 days and chances are, if you are reading this, you are probably at, near or past the halfway point.

 

No, it’s not morbid to think about.

 

You must live with some sense of urgency.  In fact, today is Suzy’s birthday (aka Devon), which marks the passage of another year for her.

 

Something I’ve challenged Suzy to do is to make a list of 12 habits for this next year and implement one per month.  In essence, she will stack monthly habits on top of the previous month, leaving her with 12 new behaviors come next April Fool’s Day.

 

Now, imagine if she did this each year.  Heck, imagine if you did this each year!  In ten years, you’d have 120 new habits that can dramatically alter the course of your life!

 

Life is about growth.

 

Growth makes us happy.

 

Therefore, life is about being in a state of happiness as much as possible.

 

Start making that list.
