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.]

[[...now about that visible light spectrum]]

I developed a serious interest in other people ... in less than 6 decades.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

From a very early age, I noticed people making mistakes. I didn't just notice it. Their mistakes scraped in my ears, seared my eyes and caused me all sorts of other discomfort, anxiety and annoyance. 

But, in less than 6 decades I managed to get beyond the constant barrage of other people's errors...and, when all the dust cleared, I found myself truly interested in other people.

No means No! (...well maybe we need to think a bit more on that!)

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

When I was a kid I heard the word "No" so much I expected to hear it, as a matter of habit.

When I was a kid I was told to say "Yes" so much I started to say it, as a matter for habit.

I've been spending time throughout the rest of my life figuring out how to respond "No" when my little internal voice automatically prompts me to say "Yes" when I really wish I was saying "No". 

I'm annoyed by that cliché, 'skin in the game'. I want to hear more about skull in the game.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Let's forget about putting money in & getting that pound of flesh and set our sights a bit higher...that is, let's concentrate on kilograms of neurons packaged in open-minded skulls. It is time we started to recognize the attributes delivered in the form of thick skin and thin skulls.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet 

Taking us away from our goals...annoying us and annoying other people.

That's the essence, the definition, of Bad Habits.
