A lesson in Humility - By Stewart Farr

Take a pen,
Write 3 poems:
Poem #1
Write all that you dislike about the world, your life, your relationships, your job....everything you can think of.

Poem #2
Write down what you have changed in the world in the last 10 years
write down what you have changed in yourself in the last 10 years

Poem #3
Write down everything that is good in your life.

Now sing it like a song.
What are you singing about?
How would you change the lyrics to the song?
Who are you singing about?
Musicians do this all the time - quite often they will write a song about something in the world, sing it - then find out its about themselves.

Why is having a bad day always a downward spiral?

I'm not very motivated today. Everything is going wrong - and the tone in my voice seems to get more political as the day continues.

I feel like getting really drunk tonight - but I am literally in a spiders web at the moment so any unplanned movements is only going to cause more harm. An an engineer my hands are tied, as a student my time is double booked, as a leader I am flying blind

Only then will you know...

Sometimes you have to look back at where you have come from. What you have seen.
To truly appreciate the wonders of the world. The wonders in your life.
Just like looking out of an aeroplane - people see you as you are from far, they are not expected to assume that you are worth getting closer to.
It is up to you to make that view worth while. Only then you know where your world changes.
Did the world change or you?

Tracy Chapman - Fast Car

You got a fast car
I want a ticket to anywhere
Maybe we make a deal
Maybe together we can get somewhere

Anyplace is better
Starting from zero got nothing to lose
Maybe we'll make something
But me myself I got nothing to prove

You got a fast car
And I got a plan to get us out of here
I been working at the convenience store
Managed to save just a little bit of money
We won't have to drive too far
Just 'cross the border and into the city
You and I can both get jobs
And finally see what it means to be living

You see my old man's got a problem
He live with the bottle that's the way it is
He says his body's too old for working
I say his body's too young to look like his
My mama went off and left him
She wanted more from life than he could give
I said somebody's got to take care of him
So I quit school and that's what I did

You got a fast car
But is it fast enough so we can fly away
We gotta make a decision
We leave tonight or live and die this way

I remember we were driving driving in your car
The speed so fast I felt like I was drunk
City lights lay out before us
And your arm felt nice wrapped 'round my shoulder
And I had a feeling that I belonged
And I had a feeling I could be someone, be someone, be someone

You got a fast car
And we go cruising to entertain ourselves
You still ain't got a job
And I work in a market as a checkout girl
I know things will get better
You'll find work and I'll get promoted
We'll move out of the shelter
Buy a big house and live in the suburbs
You got a fast car
And I got a job that pays all our bills
You stay out drinking late at the bar
See more of your friends than you do of your kids
I'd always hoped for better
Thought maybe together you and me would find it
I got no plans I ain't going nowhere
So take your fast car and keep on driving

You got a fast car
But is it fast enough so you can fly away
You gotta make a decision
You leave tonight or live and die this way

Sorry guys - twisted my back

Its a killer - like someone doing up a screw really tight in my back. Just a tiny little muscle - but its taking all my energy to not feel it.

Interesting fact

75% of work stress is caused by management......

actually when you think about it, it's a useless fact - like saying 95% of drownings are caused by water....
