  1. FAIL! (Dang! By the time I opened this page up, the first idea slipped my mind. Just write it down!)
  2. After a year, publish all these 10 ideas a day lists in an ebook.
  3. Publish my collection of quotes in an eBook. (really, not enough)
  4. Publish some of the art my daughter does in an eBook.
  5. Create a narrative using someone else’s work. (Where’s the compelling story? The only short compeller I have is when I network, I try to ask people right off the bat how I can help them. We are all trying to add value, right? So just be direct and ask. Neat things have happened, but not enough yet to fill a book, especially since I have not written any of them down.)
  6. Run a investment group at middle school using Dr. David Eifrig’s Retirement Trader. Recently closed about 130(?) consecutive (covered call?) trades at a profit. Who can argue with that? (Taking baby steps now.)
  7. Create a  font based on leaves. (Phew, already done)
  8. I already have a movie in my head. If I just sketch out 1 scene per day — 15 mins — I will have a rough draft in a few months. (Lets do it!)
  9. Ahh! One I really like!!! Gather peak moments. Survey people and turn that into posts and a book? (Fun way to meet people too!)
    1. Your favorite accomplishment.
    2. What makes you feel supported.
    3. The scariest thing you overcame and how you did it.
    4. A drawing or phrase  that symbolizes all this.

The universe is made of stories, not atoms. — Muriel Rukeyser
The grass is greener where you water it. — Ted McGrath

A recipe for appreciating someone: Plan, make, or give:

  • Something they will love.
  • Something they don’t yet know about.
  • Something that illuminates their essence.
  • (possibly) Something which lightly acknowledges and accepts one of their challenges.

Then plan a event, etc. After they think, “Well, that was fun”, unveil the real offering. Enjoy their delight in being unconditionally loved and wanted.

Not only did she not “see” her ring, she did not really see anyyone around her for a while.

Did she even look at her ring? Fun ending.

Dr Will Joel Friedman: The Full Bounty Of Love Is Available For Those Who Grow [Being in like –> Falling in love –> Being in love –> State of loving –>] ‘LOVE INHABITS US AND WE EMBODY LOVE’: This highly mature, spiritual love is sometimes called ‘agape’ or brotherly and sisterly love. It transcends earthly limitations, incorporating an abiding spiritual relationship to all living things, the earth and the Divine. Living this humane stewardship, an appreciative reverence grows along with a communion of the spirit blossoming into our true nature. Ineffable and beyond expression in mere words, when love inhabits us and we embody love with another person it shows itself as two souls silently rhyming in brotherly and sisterly fulfillment.

One does not fall “in” or “out” of love. One grows in love. — Leo Buscaglia

The essence of love is getting out of yourself and lightly near others while mirroring be-ing whole. When we care less about our feelings, our perceived rights, our happiness, our security, etc., and concern ourselves with the essence of others, we become whole. — ??

Recipe for a loving relationship:

  • Call when you say you will (reduce uncertianty)
  • Follow though with what you say you will do, or make amends (increase trust)
  • Sends thank you notes (show appreciation)
  • Plan a nice time with her interests in mind
  • Never gossip
  • Come up with supportive ideas that further her goals (show proactive attention)
  • Give her (and others) complements in front of other people
