Enjoy your present moments and current situation. These will pass all too quickly, in retrospect. Many of them happen only once.

Save yourself

All in. Both hoping to be a super hero.

Save yourself from the insidious self-destruction known as addiction.

Watching Bob Iger’s Master Class. It was redundant messaging. Heard it all while Bob was actually doing it as my CEO.

Son, you are destined for your own personal greatness. What that means and how it manifests for you will unfold naturally. Enjoy the ride of a lifetime.

Born or developed?

What to do if a visionary Gerontologist asks you a great question? Easy. Answer it honestly. You don’t need research nor scientific data to know what you know, feel, and experience.

You are, after all, the expert at your own personal opinion. Just answer it. Don’t over-think it.

The question may sound intimidating, like this one:

Can passion be developed?

My answer:

One tip, know the difference between passion and skill.

Can passion be developed?

This is interesting. First thoughts:

1. Passion is found, not developed
2. Once found, then what?
3. Passion isn’t developed, it’s unleashed.
4. It’s emotional, not tangible.

A speaker, let’s say, can practice their speech, but it’s hard to practice their unbridled desire (passion) for helping others. They’re born with it naturally.

Once we start thinking passion is a thing, we are probably no longer talking about passion, but something else, like a skill.

Passion can be harnessed and directed purposefully. Can it be developed? Hmmm.

Example: Do we develop passion for being a great parent, or is it innate? Is that like saying, with time, i could love Monique more? When our kids are young, can we develop more patience, better hygiene and safety, become more effective teaching manners?

Absolutely.

Passion never feels like work. The exception is when you feel the negative energy from other people and their stereotypical mumbling about you caring too much.”

Nuwanda Chronicles

Note: This post was written August 2012 but never published until 2021.

What is the blog category “The Chronicles of Nuwanda”? They are a series of posts designed to illuminate truth while deflecting blame to a specific person.

Seth Godin writes with clarity, creativity, and insight that no other writer i read delivers – and with such amazing regularity (daily), on top of his 13 best-selling books.

He wrote Corporations Are Not People the other day (Aug. 17) about Progressive Insurance. In rereading it just now, and reading the blog post from the victim’s Katie Fisher’s brother, it’s sad and educational at the same time.

While Nuwanda judges no one, Nuwanda is free to write and share anything. To anyone.

And therein lies the insight after reading up to this point. The insight is that if you conduct yourself in any way, shape, or form, don’t expect it to go undetected. Ever.

It may. But don’t expect it to.

Live your life so that if anyone ever says anything bad about you, no one will believe it.
