The greatest pleasures…

For you and for me,

Are often overlooked,

Because they are free.

When we are mindful of the above saying, we will have more enjoyment in our lives…because we won’t have to spend time working for the pleasures that costs us dough.

We often get caught up with thinking stuff, and even more stuff will bring us pleasure.

Stuff goes out of style, gets old and are often traded for our money and our hard work.

But the stuff for free…is free.

Compassion…

We talk a lot about empowering ourselves…what about others?

Compassion is a good recipe for helping others. It not only contributes in helping them with their “deal” but it also gives way for better relationships.

And it all starts with you.

Why do we have to get older??

I don’t know, but we all age… regretfully.

When I first moved to Las Vegas to be with Zappos, I went to this haircut place where it’s really bright inside.

When they finished, they spun me around and asked me how I liked the back….I couldn’t believe it!!! It was the first time I saw the back in years and you could see my scalp through the thinning hair! Yikes.

I no longer let them spin me around as I now trust they did a good job in the back:)

But to “Spin it and win it”, at least I don’t get up in the morning, sore, and know that’s about as good as it gets.

In business…

A common mistake that is made, is that they advertise when things are down, in an attempt to bring in more business.

But in reality, when business is down, working on the structure and function of the business is what is called for, not advertising.

Advertising is to be done when the business is doing great, that way they are advertising greatness and it will feed on greatness.

Look at it this way – Would you advertise yourself, when things aren’t going so well?
Or would you work on yourself to get better, and then advertise the better you?

Putting Things into Perspective

My wife went in for some testing and everything is OK, but as she was waiting apprehensively for her results, she spotted a little girl around 7 with a bald head, smiling pushing around an I.V. stand, taking a walk with her Mom.

She also saw a smaller child asking a lady why she was here? The lady said “she was here for her husband”, and after the repeated questions by the innocent girl of why, why, why, she answered “it’s because they have to remove my husbands cancer”.

As the saying goes, “There is ALWAYS some one worse off than you”.
Somehow, my wifes apprehension was put into perspective.

People often ask me…

If I ever have a bad day?

Truth be known, if I’m breathing, it’s never a bad day but occasionally I have an “off” day.

You know, the day where you don’t even want to “Spin it and Win it”.

For “those” days, I remember 2 things: be courteous and keep my commitments, attempting not to “infect” others with my funk and go home.

That way I can start new tomorrow and not lose ground today.

OR you can be rude and blow things off…but the results are not the same.
