The Best of Times We sure live in a great time. It’s the 21st century. We have access to all the resources and information that is available on the Internet, the libraries, the bookstores. Our will can bend and create anything we can imagine if our minds are determined and driven like Nikola Tesla, Thomas […]

Contests Suck I hate competition. It brings out the worst in me. If I had to pit myself against anyone, I’d most likely shut down and lose. Then I make excuses why I lost. This hierarchy of who’s first, what’s second, and I don’t know is on third reminds me of Abbott and Costello: Personal […]

You vs. the World So many things are going against you. Physically you have a splitting headache. Your knees are sore. You can’t lift your arms above your head. Mentally you’re spent. It’s hard to think of anyone, let alone yourself. If you’re doing anything, it’s a miracle. Spiritually you’re lost. If God is everywhere, […]

Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan Press On! […]

The Doubt of Making Something Good You sit down. You have the piano in front of you. It’s your first lesson. The piano teacher pulls out a sheet of music. You look at it. It is in another language. It has 5 lines going horizontally repeated with a small space. There are small vertical lines […]

A Crack Becomes a Gusher You have to take care when you’re giving things or making mistakes. Sometimes what you think is small can be much, much larger, longer, and more dangerous.
