  1. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/July02Post.mp4 Once, a long, long time ago, I was in elementary school. Our teacher gave us this math problem. Kind of like a puzzle. She said the first one that finished would get a prize. So, I raced through, got the answer, but was pretty sure I'd finished first. I looked around at all the other kids, and they were still working. But I also had a huge crush on my teacher. So I hesitated. Some other kid raises his hand, and got tons of praise from the teacher.

  2. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Jun01Post.mp4 Mark Twain famously said that 90% of his worst fears never came true. This is pretty much the human condition. This is why another smart guy said that most humans live lives of quiet desperation. We all want stuff. But we're all afraid to get stuff. And nobody talks about this.

Eating, sex, TV, alcohol, drugs, etc. But unless we face these tough issues, they won't go away. For most of us, these aren't nearly as dramatic as on TV or in the movies. For most of us, these are like Mark Twain fears. Mark Twain famously said that 90% of his fears never happened. But unless you realize this, they will SEEM real. Which is the basis of one of those clever acronyms. F.E.A.R = "false enemies appearing real" The problem
  5. Mark Twain is famous for a lot of interesting quotes. One of them is regarding the difference between somebody who CAN'T read and somebody who DOESN'T read. Nothing. Meaning that have a skill and not exercising is the same as NOT having the skill. This is an interesting way to look at things. We all like to believe we COULD do something if we REALLY WANTED to.
