    Thu, Aug 13 | In The Land Of The Blind, Even The…

    I struggle with perfectionism, and this quote helps me on a couple of different levels.







    I’ve been blind to many things in my life, and I’m always grateful to the kings who’ve helped show me the way.







    It really did not matter how many eyes they had — they knew more than me.

    Wed, Aug 12 | Peace Is The Result Of Retraining Your Mind To…

    This quote is a close cousin to, “Nothing means anything until you give it meaning,” but it’s different enough that it deserves its own place on my list.







    I particularly like the use of the word “retraining.”

    Tue, Aug 11 | Everyone Is The Hero Of Their…

    When former Saturday Night Live cast-member Mike Myers was promoting his original Austin Powers movie, he did an interview with Parade magazine.







    The reporter asked him why his Dr. Evil character was still so lovable.







    He said that his mother – who was very active in the theater – told him:







    "Remember: the villain is always the hero of their own story.”







    I’ve altered the quote slightly to make it more universal.

    Fri, Aug 07 | A Good Plan, Violently Executed Now, Is Better Than…

    I know the word “violently” is off-putting to some, so feel free to substitute “passionately,” “aggressively,” or even “haphazardly” in your mind instead.







    A similar quote you might like is, “Imperfect action is better than perfect inaction.”







    I still prefer General Patton’s, though, because I never see myself as being in a state of inaction.







    I can easily convince myself that all my mental plotting and planning is actually taking action, when it’s really not.







    But I can never convince myself that all the gears turning in my head are anything close to actually “executing a plan,” so General Patton gets my butt in gear -- in keeping with his well-deserved reputation.

    Thu, Aug 06 | Achieve Your Meaning Through Creativity, Not…

    See if you remember this TV ad jingle from the seventies:







    “I’m a Pepper, he’s a Pepper, she’s a Pepper, we’re a Pepper! If you drink Dr. Pepper, you’re a Pepper, too!”







    Hey, if you want to be a Pepper, that’s fine.







    One of the keys to life, though, is to not just be a Pepper.







    By all means, go ahead and drink a certain soda, drive a certain car, don’t let anything come between you and a certain pair of jeans – if you remembered the jingle; you’ll remember the jeans ad – but draw the bulk of your identity and self-worth from what you’re putting out into the world, and not from what you’re taking in.
