Advice (from my Dad) I Try to Live By:
1) "You don't win a game with home runs. You win with base hits. One after the other."
One step at a time. The more you get, the more the other team starts feeling like they are losing and the worse they perform. In life, if you continue moving forward, despite the opposition, eventually they will become easier to ignore and get past, and the more you will win in life.
2) "Work in a way that keeps your boss's boss off of your boss's back."
Make sure you do things right. Even better than asked for. Do your job in such a way that your boss, and their boss, have only compliments to hand out and, eventually, can say that they trust the job will get done because your track record shows you are more than capable.
3) "Mr. I-Can't never could do anything. Couldn't sleep. Couldn't eat. Couldn't breathe. But...Mr. I'll-Try...he worked miracles and accomplished his dreams."
If you continue to give up and claim you cannot do anything, eventually you will believe that as well and you really won't be able to do anything. And the more you "can't even right now" the less others will trust you to do anything. Your boss, your friends, your family, soon will no longer trust that you will do anything you promise to do or they ask of you. But if you always try, whether you fail or not, you at least show a desire to grow, to learn and to move forward. Be a Mr./Mrs. I'll-Try and watch your world change for the better.

Understand that some of these answers are for comedic purposes only and not to be taken seriously.
Which ones?
Well, that's up to you...

Do I Have ADD?

A few days ago my wife sat me down and had me read this article over on LifeHack.com.
It's called: 20 Things to Remember If You Love a Person with ADD by June Silny.
I have to say it was really eye-opening. Going over each and every item on this list made things start to make sense.
For this article I'd like to go over each and everyone of these points with you and explain a little bit from the perspective of someone who does, apparently, have ADD.
Yep, based on these items, it appears that I have ADD.
Allow me to explain...

I am enough of the artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.
