Why You Hate Work -

Highly insightful article.
One thing that wasn’t mentioned in here: Most of what this describes is an obsolete Industrial / Corporate Industrial Age mentality which somehow is still hanging on, although we’ve even mostly pushed by the successor to the above two era known as the Information Age (!)
Seeing such low numbers in this survey/study comes as no surprise if you continue to take literally the Latin root of “employ” ( = to use ) and combine with turning back the clock to the pre-internet years.
One tonic? (and I’d say the best) - don’t wait, and be sure to be creating your own personal economy and earning your own money as an entrepreneur.

The “Fight Club” rule for dream building :)

There’s one rule for dream building ………

… and it’s to never use the word “afford”.

Why would you do that?

That’s like putting the sharp tacks under your own wheels!

Always have an abundance mentality - trillions of dollars circle the globe every day; why would you settle for the bread crumbs when the entire bakery is available?

Why Comfort is a Curse | by : Stephen Palmer, Writer & Entrepreneur

Absolutely on point.
Comfort is to good as learning is to great.
Exceptional people don’t stay in their familiar (comfort) zones.

Understanding Education v. Schooling begins (or continues) here …

There is a difference - a crucial & imperative one.
Education = How to Think.
Schooling = What & When.

238 years young …. America. An experiment in liberty & justice for all.

A republic, age 238 years: America. Always a bright beacon; a light house beckoning humanity to its vast shoreline. To visit its amazing landmarks, vibrant cities, small towns, beaches, & farms …… America has offered all eight meanings of freedom, abundance in all its forms, and a potpourri of means to grow and prosper economically, spiritually, & socially. That is the ever enduring siren call of our blessed, bountiful, and native land…. So, today, renew your vows & your sacred duty to preserve all of what you love, value, & treasure about our country. Prevent the 5 FLD & promote with all your might the 6 SDS … Read the Federalist & Anti Federalist Papers; The Constitution, & the Declaration. The SDS are the keystones for the next hundred years of birthdays. God Bless our Independence Day!!

Communities , causes , & connections

"Causes may come and go … Communities are forever!"

"The Foundation for Building a Better Community - One Person at a Time."

- United Way brochure

____________ A very well known & respected charitable organization. Think rewards cards/rings/apps. What about frequent flyer points & clubs? Let alone the fine work done by Peter Block down in Cincinnati with community building. What should this tell everyone? Community matters. Dell saw it coming 15+ years ago. Jobs, however, beat him to fulfilling it. Community matters - even more so now in the Conceptual Age than in the Information Age which preceded it. Form & bond/build communities. Be a connector. You will find immense value in doing so.

The Art of Living

"A master in the art of living draws no sharp distinction between his work and his play; his labor and his leisure; his mind and his body; his education and his recreation. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence through whatever he is doing, and leaves others to determine whether he is working or playing. To himself, he always appears to be doing both."

- L.P. Jacks
