11:58 am - More on the GSP and DP
This morning's Buffett Oracle seems pretty straightforward:
145. You've got to take a chance, you got to let somebody move you.
Sometimes, the best advice, though late in coming, is the obvious advice :)

Last night, I outlined a book to write, but as I look at it, I realize I probably already wrote it at some point or another, so it's off to build another Dedicant Requirement Packet, I think. Meditation is next on the list of things to write about, there.

I mentioned in a comment that I want to go back and re-work the DP. I'm seriously thinking about actually re-doing the entire thing, including the meditation bit. I think that, if I re-did the DP at this point, I'd not only write (much) better essays, but I'd also get a lot more out of it.

I'm really liking the idea of approaching the meditation bit again. I'll probably hate myself for that somewhere around week 3, but hey, gotta do what you gotta do, you know?

Hey, now that my GSP is sitting around pending someone else's action for a change: What can I do for you folks working on your DP's?

Motivate me to work on it more.

What is it that motivates you?

I dunno really, maybe that's my problem. Not much motivates me these days :) I suppose my father is always a motivation, good music, love, dreams, cleanliness, accomplishment, praise, good friends.

Maybe more motivates me than I thought.

Did I actually answer your question? I seem to recall some weird emergency calling me away from the desk somewhere in the middle of our conversation.

I need to redo meditation too. This final essay / journal thing might be the death of me, btu I've been working my ass off on it and I know I will finish it soon. Once that's done, though, it's back to the drawing board for actual practice...

Haha, you start at a similar time as me. Then we can peer pressure each other. I can go "Man, I meditated FIVE minutes yesterday" and you can secretly go "oh shit, I only did four..." and then maybe it will keep you motivated, because you can't let a GIRL be better at meditating! ;)

I would like to officially point out that a girl can beat me at just about anything.

Except, perhaps, peeing on a wall.

*rubs chin*

Hmmmm.

But you are distracting me from the subject of meditation! If you were on IM after 2 or so, you would have heard my good news... but no. You were busy HELPING people with their technology problems and upholding a good ethic. I mean, what the hell. Who DOES that these days? Keep it up and I will have to get you fired and replaced with an intern of my calibre...

Who managed to crash/break, in rapid-fire succession, the printer, PowerPoint, Excel, Word, Lotus Notes, and the internet. :P!

That reminds me of a story. Which I won't tell, because really- while it won't surprise people to hear about what sort of child I was, it's really not necessary to make it more vivid.

Thanks for pointing out that I was picking at you! LOL

Actually- I think tha is true about almost anything we do in life- that AFTER we've learned more- we would get much more from the initial process that lead to the learning...

I think that about school now- I think- geeze- if I had only known then what I know now, I would have appreciated it all more.. Of course I couldn;t know then what I know now, because then I was learning what I now know...

Hmmm- Vicious cycle... I know...

Regardless- Good Luck on your DP! LOL.
Seriously- I hope you do get a lot out of it...

I was specific: I would have everything submitted by the end of the week.

I'm not dumb enough to make an oath reliant on someone else reading all my crap and getting back to me. . .

You've got to take a chance, you got to let somebody move you

you know there are some people in my life that i have met that i can honestly say moved me, and there is nothing better than hearing someone say to you

"You move me" there aren't words, but i agree, being moved by some one is a great feeling :) i highly recomend it

Given what I know now about myself and meditation, if I had the time, I think I could do with doing it again. I spent the least amount of effort on that (I did exert some effort, but only enough to finish it- as I am sure you could tell. I know that req hinged my passing or not).
