The cornerstone of our personality, our mental attitude, shows up as the general flavour of our thoughts.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

We can choose from 3 mental-attitude flavours: Positivity, Negativity, & Indifference.

Positivity is the best flavour...a rich flavour in many ways.

Negativity can be hard to swallow...but, at least, it gives you something to argue against.

Indifference - so bland it's not worth writing about.

 

 

 

Plan to repeat, repeat, repeat...that's one key to teaching, inspiring, & influencing people.

"Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn."

Benjamin Franklin

When we observe repetition, we learn.

When we repeat, others have the opportunity to learn.

Seek out people who will encourage you to achieve what they alone know you can.

We benefit when someone or something makes us do what we can.

Sometimes, observant & wise people know our potential for achievement better than we know it ourselves.

Even the great Ralph Waldo Emerson needed that sort of help. Emerson said, "What I most need is somebody to make me do what I can." 

People Only Do 3 Things: Good HabitsBad Habits, & New Things

When we want to develop better habits we need an injection of accountability; we benefit when someone or something makes us do what we can.

Disorganized people are too busy because they repeat their problems and their tasks.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Disorganized people make more errors, cause more distractions, and tend to annoy more-organized people.

Disorganized people are work expanders.

Disorganized people are work repeaters.

Disorganized people think they are too busy....they blame Time when the real culprit is their personal disorganization/mayhem.

Primate evolution! We enjoy the benefits of both opposing thumbs and blame-pointing fingers.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Our fingers naturally point outwards. Perhaps, that's why we point at others when it's time to place blame.

Even if that cloud doesn't have a silver lining it still might bring a rainbow.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

While I have never explored the interior of clouds to discern whether or not they are actually silver...I have marveled at the majesty of rainbows. 

[Perhaps that's not too bad for a half-colour-blind guy who studied math and engineering.]
