[30 Day Challenge] 30 Wouldn’t it be cool if…

Random Observation/Comment #273: Give yourself 5 minutes a day to meditate (not think about anything) and day dream (think about all the things possible).  It’ll help you relax and put things into context. Why This List? I live in a reality that’s limited and constrained by laws, but my imagination knows no such limits. It can keep following thoughts and...

Reflecting on 2011

Reflecting on 2011

Random Observation/Comment #268: Life is not about finding meaning, it’s about making meaning.  Today should be an improvement from yesterday and this year should be the best year of my life.  “Always forward.” Quote of the year. Last year, I: visited Puerto Rico, Las Vegas, Munich, Schliersee, St Kanzian, Vienna, Barbados, and Russia; started a zipcar rental to do one-day...

Reflecting on 2010

Reflecting on 2010

Random Observation/Comment #252: Writing these year-end reviews always put me in such a good mood.  It enumerates and puts meaning to my accomplishments.  It gives me a burst of motivation to complete my goals list.  It lets me reevaluate my progress and recreate a new list of things to do the next year.  It gives me at least a direction...

Working Vacation’s Reflection

Random Observation/Comment #246: I thought backpacking was the way to go, but I guess I never stayed at a hotel with this view.

My Skydiving Experience

Random Observation/Comment #244: Everyone should go skydiving. I’m afraid of heights and I still did it. Of course, the guy just pushed me off after I was screaming like a little girl, but whatever… I made it.

My Mid-year Review: Needs Improvement

My Mid-year Review: Needs Improvement

Random Observation/Comment #243: I spend a lot of time re-evaluating my life and making sure I can: 1) look in the past and nod approvingly at my decisions, 2) predict the future career steps so I can nod approvingly at the image of myself in the future, and 3) follow my routine to make sure it has a happy balance...

Setting Up New Goals

Setting Up New Goals

Random Observation/Comment #218: Rejection is a terrible thing, but it’s definitely part of life.  Any excuses I give for my role in the situation will never be enough to ease my mind.  I’m not sure if it’s the disappointment in myself for not being able to think quicker or act sooner (or later), or if it’s just self-pity and self-loathing,...

Goals, Aspirations, Dreams, and Fantasies

Goals, Aspirations, Dreams, and Fantasies

Random Observation/Comment #111: Ambition and curiosity drives me.  I’m not exactly an adrenaline junkie looking for the next extreme sport to almost die from, nor am I a millionaire thrill seeker spending all of his money experiencing crazy things; I am just a man with goals, aspirations, dreams, and fantasies.  Many of the goals are very short term and involve...
