This Is Just a List


  • This is just a list.  It’s a way to keep writing even when I feel that I have nothing to say.
  • Sometimes it’s good to push myself in new directions.
  • Today I learned about the law of forced efficiency, from Brian Tracy’s book, Eat That Frog, which states, we get things done when we have to.  But I don’t want forced efficiency; I want relaxed efficiency.
  • The changing of the seasons feels like a miracle every year.
  • If I treat my small like a large class, I’m going to have a lot more fun.
  • Work is not a curse, but avoiding work is.

  • I bet I can write this blog in ten minutes.
  • The following things never get old:
    • Gratitude
    • Love
    • Kindness
    • Peace
    • Joy
  • I feel very blessed to be alive. 
  • I feel very blessed to be healthy.
  • I could really use a nap right now, but I probably won’t get one.  But I will get a blog written and that’s almost as good.
  • I notice that my fatigue often passes once I start working.  When it does, it’s because it came from the Enemy.  When it doesn’t, it’s because I need to go to bed.
  • I need to drink more water.
  • Here are some things I can’t have too much of:
    • God
    • Love
    • Money
    • Time
    • Gratitude
  • Speaking of gratitude, I think I need to practice it a lot more.
  • I’m grateful for love, my home, and time to write.
  • Writing is creating in me the man I have been created to be.
  • Every blog makes me a little stronger, even the “bad” ones. 
  • So far, I haven’t written any bad ones.
  • I have new ideas for blogs.  They don’t come from me.  They are given to me, but I am responsible for getting them done.  If I don’t, then they will never be written.  Never.
  • I love writing.  That’s why I write…for love.  That’s why we should do anything we do.
  • Just because I love this doesn’t mean I don’t have to fight for it.  In fact, when we do what we love, we can expect a fight.  The more we love what we do, the greater the fight we will have to pursue it.
  • The fight is worth it.
  • The more we find what we love and the more time we spend with it, the less important many other things are, no matter how important those things once seemed.
  • Get Started.
  • Keep Going.
  • That’s all.
