Generating good ideas

What do you know about ideas?
How do you react to new ideas?
Are you fast to recognize good ideas?
And do you welcome or reject them?
How do you get good ideas?
The last question is the most important;
And on it, therefore, let us tarry most.
Read, read, read; listen to others
And learn and new ideas you will get;
You create good ideas
By feeding your mind with quality food.
Share the things you learn;
Teach somebody;
Don’t keep to yourself;
What you keep to yourself will not grow.
Take time to think about what you read;
What you hear, learn and see;
Capture and store any idea that pops up;
You may be reading or listening;
You may be silent or watching,
Ideas like to pop up when least expected;
Capture them by writing them down;
Don’t let them fly off;
They may not come back if they go.
Look for the positive in every idea;
Do you observe the things you see?
Observe for ideas;
Many you will find;
Go on the web and surf for new ideas;
The web is an ocean of ideas;
Socialize!
You will get tons of ideas by socializing.
Ideas matter;
Ideas rule the world;
Learn to generate ideas;
On good ideas your success depends.

Big lessons indeed

You night gave read the thought I shared on the story of David and Goliath. It’s a big lesson, indeed. It says it is looking for and beating a giant that will give you fame not crushing a fly. This is exact.

The story of David and Goliath is a rich story with many lessons.

It also teaches other lessons:

  1. Size is not what matters in life. A small person can defeat a fat one;
  2. A young person can do better than an older one.
  3. What looks impossible may actually be possible;
  4. You don’t win a fight, a competition or a war before you ahead of it but after.
  5. Don’t boast, you may he disgraced;
  6. When God is fighting on your side, victory is guaranteed; nobody can defeat you;
  7. With God many things that look impossible are possible;
  8. You never can know what you can do until you try;
  9. Don’t fear to risk.
  10. Have the courage to dare.
  11. The race is not for the sweet
  12. Pride goes before a fall.
  13. Your challenge maybe your opportunity.
  14. These are definitely not all the lessons that this story teaches.

Can you think of another lesson or other lessons?

Which lesson means most to you?

Never stop learning

Never stop nurturing
Your mind;
How can you grow
If you stop learning?
You grow when you nourish
Your mind
Through learning.
That enables you
To improve the way
You do what you do;
Hence,
Do not stop learning;
So that instead of
Vegetating
You may richly sprout.

 

Work, work, work

Sorry I missed yesterday. I did not do a recreational walk. But there is good reason.

I now work at a Hotel as Housekeeper. I have to be there at 8 am. With Autumn and Winter coming on sunrise isn’t until 6:30ish. While I get home between 2 pm and 5 pm I am A) Sore and tired B) Have other things to do and C) Soon sunset will be too early to walk after work.

This does not mean I am giving up my daily walks. I will still walk on my days off and on the treadmill. Though pictures of my time/distance will not be as interesting.

Right now though is still a physical adjustment to the work. I ran my walking app only during my shift yesterday, it registered almost 6 miles of walking. My hours yesterday were 8 am to 2:30 pm. The app does not measure all the bending, lifting, stretching and other physcial movement I do.

I have done Housekeeping before. I have been a server. When I worked food service at Target I not only walked but lifted frozen boxes of breadsticks among other things.

I have worked office jobs as well. What I have learned is I need to work the physically demanding jobs. I feel better overall when I do.

Got off subject a bit there. Point of this rambling is I will try and post pictures of daily walks as often as possible…they may be futher apart or not as interesting.

Walking Music

Not sure if I am headed outside to walk today. Might be a treadmill day.

Either way I wanted to share what is on my walking play list.

“Electric Daisy” Lindsey Stirling

“Elements” Lindsey Stirling

“Shadows” Lindsey Stirling

“Shatter Me” Lindsey Stirling

Yes, I like Lindsey Stirling.

“Rx” Theory of A Deadman This would be one of my ironic choices.

“Closing Time” Semisonic This would be the other.

“Believer” Imagine Dragons

“Rise” Katy Perry

“My Favorite Game” Cardigans

“Start A War” Klergy

“Leader of Men” Nickleback

There you have it. If you thing this list is a bit eclectic you should know I have one big YouTube play list with over 300 songs on it. I have other list which include but are not limited to: 30’s Swing/Big Band, K-Pop, Techno and Classical.

My favorite artists include: Nirvana, Frank Sinatra, Queen, Johnny Cash, Patsy Cline, Garth Brookes, Lindsey Stirling, Katy Perry. Big Bang (who I saw in concert), Guns N’ Roses, Baby Metal (who I also saw in concert), Ozzy Osbourne (my first concert-OzFest) and Mozart, Vivaldi and Gershwin.

Some of my favorite songs include, New York, New York, Come As You Are, Gimme Chocolate, No More Tears, Low Places, Rhapsody in Blue, Fat Bottomed Girls and Bicycle Race, and Four Seasons.

Even if I don’t post pictures today I hope I inspire some of you to expand your musical comfort zone.

Rain Rain Go Away

Good news my voice is back. Bad news. More rain. Which is good for farmers…sorta…a bit late though.

However! I started a job as Housekeeper at Holiday Inn Express today. Talk about miles walked!

Hoping the rain up so I can get some fresh air walking time in (and pictures) tomorrow.

Rainy Days & Runaway Cows

So I posted on my blog, acliddle.blog, yesterday that was unable to walk due to rain and the migraine that came with it.

Today it is still raining and while I do not feel sick, I have lost my voice, and I am fatigued.

Rather than another missed post I thought I would tell a couple of stories about loose cows.

I am not sure how they got out but in both cases their escapes were precipitated by…well precipitation..rain, and storms. I am not sure if the cows became restless or what but there it is.

The first story: I was driving home from work, on the backroads through the country. Ahead of me I saw three cars in the on coming lane with their flashers on. Then I saw in my lane, heading towards me a what looked to be pregnant cow. I was able to get around her, for she was not to be detoured from her path. Further down the road I saw the possible pasture she had escaped from. Then I noticed in the ditch another cow who had decided to take a walk. This cow did not look pregnant.

The second story: Today I was riding with a friend; we were going into town for errands. We came around a curve, right before a small bridge and there meandering around, were six cows on the side of road. Not sure what pasture they came from. They were gone by the time we were headed back.

Ah Life in the Country.
