Why do people say they fail?

Resources: Time, money, technology, contacts, experience, management

Resourcefulness: Creativity, determination, love, caring, curiosity, passion, resolve

What am I going to focus on? 

Focus = feeling; past/present/future; self or others?

What does it mean? 

Is it the end or the beginning?  Are you being punished or rewarded?

What are you going to to? 

Are you going to give up or move forward?

Certainty, uncertainty, feeling special, connection/love, needs of the spirit, grow, contribute beyond ourselves

We Stopped Dreaming

Neil deGrasse Tyson - We Stopped Dreaming (Episode 1)

We Stopped Dreaming (Episode 2) - A New Perspective

You know you find a good video when it is 11pm and you’re half asleep and within the first minute you are hooked.  You aren’t hooked because it is a “viral video” but because you realize what they are explaining in the video makes some sense and is done with true passion.  I can listen to people explain new concepts to me with passion all day long.  The second video is my favorite if you don’t have time to watch both.

People don’t have passion like this any more.  People don’t get excited for new things like we did.  Maybe we aren’t dreaming big enough.  Don’t stop dreaming.  Love this.

The American Who Quit Money To Live In A Cave

There are a few potential challenges with his chosen way of life for me and likely many others, but several times in the video I couldn’t help but say “huh”.  The “huh” sound is what I do, and I’ve found many others do when something we have traditionally thought true is challenged.  As crazy as his way of life may seem to many of us, it may not be so crazy.

Self-Driving Car Test: Steve Mahan

Self-Driving Car Test: Steve Mahan

Google: “We announced our self-driving car project in 2010 to make driving safer, more enjoyable, and more efficient. Having safely completed over 200,000 miles of computer-led driving, we wanted to share one of our favorite moments. Here’s Steve, who joined us for a special drive on a carefully programmed route to experience being behind the wheel in a whole new way. We organized this test as a technical experiment, but we think it’s also a promising look at what autonomous technology may one day deliver if rigorous technology and safety standards can be met.”
