I have a whiteboard on my wall behind me and on it you may see some notes on certain things when it comes to certain things and if you watch me twitch you may see it on cam over my right shoulder. There are always some notes on it and sometimes it could be just to keep some things straight with actions moving forward, it could be deadlines that need to be dealt with or even things that needed to be wrapped up.
So on my whiteboard, I have a few things. One of them is the number 80 in red and blue markers for the fallen goalie of the Columbus Blue Jackets, I read his story and found him very brave, and for whatever it is worth to think on what he did when it was needed most. It helps me keep my head on straight even if things are bad and for those who do not know. He had been at a party with the other team members and the fireworks had been set off accidentally so one goalie jumped and blocked the fireworks and took a direct hit to the chest while the other goalie was protecting his family and wondered why he didn’t feel anything until he looked to see his co-worker, his friend at this point, take the hit.
Bravery like that is something to be remembered so his number was 80 and that is why it is on my board. Then there is the odd note to the music project that I did not forget, or do something to keep my writing and editing straight, and then there is a set of three lines that unless you knew of from pro wrestling, it may just fly over your head.
Control your narrative. When it comes to stories someone in pro wrestling made something where even if you are not a fan then you can at least learn from it as a storyteller. EC3 as he is known as done a magnificent job of breaking down both the character and the person and how they all work towards a purpose. I think if anyone wants to better themselves or make themselves better by boiling down what makes them work take a look at controlling your narrative.
Outside of two notes, there are three phrases where I look up and sometimes to be reminded for various reasons. One is ‘people will disappoint you’ and while that is not as positive as some hope it is there to remind me that people will not always do as they say they will, and it can be painful to deal with it, but it is something that has to be dealt with if you try to do anything in life. Another one comes from the show Peaky Blinders ‘No rest for me in this world, maybe in the next’ is something that reminds me to go all out, and do what I can, not to overdo it and leave myself broken and drained because I have had to learn that lesson by experience. What it is is never leave anything in the tank but do it in a way where I can do it again tomorrow. I have stated it before and will state it again that there is a limit to going all out and it all depends on how much you need to heal up for the next one.
Also, as a side note I have filled out an application for the state representative for my ward but I have found that to do it as an independent I need to do it a different way. So still doing it I just had to redo the paperwork, which is good because I still have plenty of time to do it. The Indiegogo I wanted to have open by end of the month but right now it is a money thing and currently, we are helping someone and they said they would put some money in for rent and haven’t in two months so it is getting close to pay or bail mode for them. I need to get some smaller containers and get some things printed out for that but we are making progress slowly but surely. Also, I need to learn how to program for another project.
^^;; I need a time machine
In any case, you know it.
