I’d like to thank my friend Magnum for inspiring this blog
The best way to never get over a problem is to keep focusing on it.
Spotting a problem is easy, and for many of us, it can create a sense of pride for being the first one to notice it. That sense of pride resonates inside of us and it’s in our nature to want to revisit that feeling and duplicate it as often as possible.
I appreciate Jonny Blur of HangerDanger.com for sending this video by Sir Ken Robinson. Watching a 20 minute video is pretty high up on my list of ‘Things That Will Never Happen”, but the title was relevant enough to my current project that I gave it a go during lunch.
I had never heard of Sir Ken Robinson before but his insight and numerous memorable quotes during the video kept me fully engaged and glad I clicked PLAY
Who we are is a result of what we have allowed to pour into us. If we look at ourselves like the color of paint, it’s interesting what we’ll see. Let’s say your a cool blue who allows an angry red thought to cross your mind. It comes in, in the amount of a teaspoon, but you don’t dwell on it, so the pouring stops. A gallon of blue is still blue when you add a teaspoon of red, but if you continue to be angry and ignore the true color of who you are, the red will continue to pour and eventually you will no longer be blue.
