My Deep Thought Notebook

I am not sure what other people do with their thoughts. I mean the one’s that make you adjust in your seat and know that there is power boiling there.

The potential seed that could grow into some potentially awesome writing, or a gadget the world has never seen before and may never experience if I don’t record it quickly and accurately.  I often get hit with ideas from sources I experience every day and spend my time trying to record them in my almost magical, brightly colored, deep thought notebook.

When It’s All Said and Done

When its all said and done will you have said more than you've done
Talk is Cheap!

When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done?

I am reminded of a good friend as I struggle to answer this question,  he says so very much that it would be impossible to ever do more than he said.

However for myself, I think that the simple answer is that I strive to do more than I say.  Doesn’t everybody?

Ancient Chinese Secret

An old Chinese proverb says that “Talk doesn’t cook rice.” and I believe that is true, and actions are preferable to speaking about something.

Thirty Questions to Understanding

by Jonathan Hilton

It all started so innocently, I was looking for a way to improve my personal writing and to increase the original content on my website.  I was also looking for a way to write more about what I feel without a filter and to express what is going on in my mind.  A friend motivated me to do this and that led me to watching this video about how this guy had done a string of personal thirty day challenges to improve his life in some way.

Leroy Jethro Gibbs is the character that Mark Harmon portrays on NCIS.  Of all of the NCIS characters, I have been told that my perspective on life is very similar to his and I take that as a compliment.  It was from this character that I got the idea for writing down my “rules for life”, because if you don’t have rules to live by you can easily lose your way.  There have been several different versions of the rules that have come out over the course of the show, but they are all pretty good rules to follow if you are an NCIS Agent or just a person in the world.
