MY NEW BIG 5!!!
#1 - See the World!
No better way to start off the next list with what you feel didn’t get fully completed off of the last list (one way
management consultants and efficiency coaches have taught me to make my daily to do lists). Although I havetraveled nearly every interstate our great nation has to offer, will have stepped foot in all 50 states by the end of this summer, and seen things I never thought I could imagine without ever leaving the borders of the United Statesof America, the time has come. I must use my passport. Bring on the new languages, new currencies, and possiblynew diseases my body can in no way prepare for on its own. I could not be more excited at this point in my life todo anything else. Italy, Switzerland, Germany, Czech Republic, Brazil, Ecuador, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Venezuela,and Australia round out my top ten list
. I can’t wait!
#2 - Invest Quality Time with Those That Are Moving Boldly Forward in Life
Besides traveling, nothing brings me more happiness than being around other people that make me feel like I ammoving too slow or being too cautious. Nothing brings me more frustration or pain than being around those wholive their lives in fear and caution and try to impose that fear and caution onto others, regardless of how educatedor caring their opinion is.
Although the pedal can’t be placed to the medal at all times, it is obvious which
individuals live their lives in a fulfilled, outwardly way rather than in a way that makes them and everyone aroundthem shrink. If nothing else happens the rest of my life other than meeting more wonderful people that are boldlymoving forward, I believe the rest of my life will be assuredly exciting, fulfilling, memorable, and meaningful.
and Catch “Her”
Over the years I’ve been kicked in the teeth and al
l for the better when it comes to women. I have learned finding
the one isn’t all that difficult, it’s the sticking together and having them love you back the same way is the tricky
part I have yet to master. Three times I have had found the one and was prepared to spend the rest of my life withthem. They had other plans, and I congratulate them for moving on at the time and doing what their heart toldthem was right, even though it busted mine into two. As business proceeded and my personal developmentmatured, I have become somewhat picky, but extremely sure of what I am looking for in a better half. Previously, Iwas after someone who had the qualities of confidence, tact, and humor. Pick two out of the three and you have awonderful girl, but two
and only two leaves problems… being passive or weak without confidence, being cocky and
rude without tact, and being no fun without a little bit of humor! I see so many of my peers settle down with
significant others that didn’t seem to have everything they were after
, and I hear them find ways to justify how
they didn’t have forever to pick
a the perfect one or had to settle for this reason or that or justify ways of how sheis perfect for him, the clock was ticking and they had to choose or lose
… I don’t subscribe to that nonsense. Findexactly what you want or don’t settle with anything at all!
(But do die trying).Add to that list of characteristics my biggest pet peeve in life where
people know what they want, have it right in front of them,
but don’t take action
to get it
. Well, when you apply action:
A Strong Leader
Tact Creates Someone with
A Big Heart
Humor Blossoms into
A Free Spirit
These are the three biggest things I try to facilitate not only in my life, but also in the lives of others, and I believethey are the things I would value above everything else when it comes to a relationship. My aim is to find awoman that naturally embodies these three values and recognizes and appreciates them in me just as I do in her.
