CARTOON:

"'Just staying alive' is certainly an unusual career goal, Mr. Wantuck."


PUZZLE:

A dealer bough a painting for $70, sold it for $80, bought it back for $90, and sold it again for $100.  How much profit did he make?


Last month's solution:

No.  The down-draft from the ducks' wings will exactly balance their weight.  You can't avoid Newton's first law: action and reaction are equal and opposite.

QUOTES:

The secret of your future is hidden in your daily routine.
Mike Murdock

To reach any significant goal, you must leave your comfort zone.
Hyrum W. Smith

Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative and creation, there is one elementary truth the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves too.
Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

Something to Meditate:

I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it is gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

Frank Herbert


Exercise: 

Commitment and relationships go hand in hand. Making relationships work, means making a commitment to finding ways that you partner can truly experience the love that you have. I have found the work of Earnie Larson in his book "Stage II Relationships" very useful. He suggests the following easy exercise:

  • Write down your partnerís three most important needs or requests.
  • Check with your partner to see if you are correct.

Although each one of us should be responsible to meet his or her own needs, this is a great plan to open up dialogue and discuss what is truly important to each person in the relationship. This is the beginning of the trust process.
