Meandering the Web on a Saturday
I may have missed a few beats in high school. I probably spent too much time in my wandering, yet exciting, mind. As I am wont to do (now, how many times do you get to use the word ‘wont?’) instead of doing what I am supposed to be doing, I was wandering around the web. I ran across a list from Sibyl at The Alternaview. She wrote a list of 30 things she wished she knew before she knew better, or something like that. Anyway, I thought it was a pretty interesting list.
Here are the first 11. If you want to see the rest, head over to her blog and take a look. I was only going to list 10, but then I liked #11 so much, I had to add it.
- The only difference between a rainy Monday and a sunny Monday is my perspective.
- Setting goals doesn’t end … they should just get bigger and better.
- It’s okay to not know.
- You can break a bad habit by falling in love with its opposite.
- If you ask yourself questions and are patient, the answers will always come.
- Be happy walking until you can run … and then it is time to try to fly.
- It is unnecessary to prove to other people that you are right.
- You should either be living your purpose or working to figure out what it is.
- Apple’s stock price is going to continue increase for a very long time.
- There is no way around it … you have to do some sort of exercise.
- Life is not a competition.
The one that caught my eye was the first. When I was a kid, my only criteria for life was that if I looked outside and it was a gray day, that was not good. On the other hand, if it was a yellow day (exactly as I thought it then), it would, as my grandfather used to say, go like gangbusters.
