No Idea

Derek Sivers posted this past Sunday about how who your heroes are is a good indication of what you want to do. An interesting idea that brought up a memory of a college interview I had years ago.

I was pretty confident that I wanted to be a programmer and was applying to The University of La Verne. I had a one on one interview, a get to know you meeting, with a professor of Computer Science at the school. Seta Whitby asked me a question that I have always struggled with:

"What gets you up in the morning?".

Today, as then, I have no good answer to that question.

My answer remains the same:

"Because I have to."

Sometimes I wonder if I had looked up to more people earlier in my life would I have found a different path?
But, then I take a moment and think about my life now and I am happy, content with where I am and what I'm doing.
Just because I don't wake up every morning trying to cure cancer doesn't mean that I lack anything. It just means I haven't found an answer ... yet

Sean Blanda does a lot of research before traveling.

On the other hand I do very minimal research: pick a destination and go, I'll figure out what to do when I get there. Spontaneity is your friend when you're on vacation: do not over plan your vacation.


Mitch McConnell

Speaker Pelosi’s much-publicized efforts to restrain her far-left conference have finally crumbled. House Democrats cannot help themselves. Instead of working together across party lines on legislation to help American families and strengthen our nation, they will descend even deeper into their obsession with relitigating 2016.

From the guy who spent the entirety of President Obama's terms trying to derail any policy the Democrats put forward.


This post from Humans of New York takes a turn at the end.

Of course it’s manipulation, but why should I care? I’ve been manipulated so many times in my life.

The old, "It's happened to me so, why should I care if it happens to you?" argument is one of the saddest ways people rationalize their behavior. This person knows he is treating women in a demeaning way ot get what he wants, but deflects that realization quite easily. It is disappointing to know that there are people in the world who know they're doing something that isn't moral or ethical and try to justify it with a lame explanation that most 5 year-olds know is wrong.

There's no way to spin this to mean anything other than what it says

We have to be very careful. Everyone needs totally proper documentation because the Bahamas had some tremendous problems with people going to the Bahamas who weren’t supposed to be there.
