GKN Weekly Update 9/12/11

And good morning to you on this “Is it Fall yet?” day. Oh, and it’s Mexican Independence Day on Friday. Man, I love my Weekly Planner!

So, I’m really torn on what to talk about today.

I could talk about the awesome VO event I went to over the weekend and how I embarrassed myself by not taking my own advice and fawned all over the guy who was the voice of Lion-O from the original Thundercats. Nah.


I could talk about how my birthday is tomorrow and make up some fake angst to garner sympathy and as many birthday wishes I can get my ego-swelled hands on. Um…nah.


I could talk about 9/11, which has been on everybody’s minds and I guarantee that I can’t bring any more comfort or perspective that hasn’t already been brought. (sigh…) Nah.

So…how are you? Good, good…

TIP OF THE WEEK: One thing that the recent event, the anniversary of a major event, and the upcoming event has given me is some serious perspective. Am I happy? Am I doing what I want with my life? Am I a good person? Am I good to the people in my life? The answers are: Yes, For the most Part, I Think So, and If I Wasn’t They Would Kick My Ass.

Can you answer those questions for yourself? Do you like your answers? Are you being honest with yourself? Can you change your answers?

QUOTE OF THE WEEK: If you are serious about your goals, drop the conditions. Go directly to your goal. Be your goal! Why not just take charge and create the experience you are looking for? Eric Allenbaugh

STUFF!: Between 9/11, Hurricane Irene, and a bunch of other stuff, this has been a tough past couple of weeks for everybody. Just remember to stay strong, you are loved, and you are awesome!

    You’re such a Dheere, Tom. Thank you for your sincerity and inspiration!

    Here are my answers:

    No, 90% of the time.
    Yes, Now.
    As much as I can, I am good to those around me. I find myself being petty/immature or short with those by whom I know that I am unconditionally loved, but don’t think I treat them poorly, per se. I guess I let my “ugly” show through if I feel comfortable enough to slip up in front of them. Recalling how I’M not perfect has led me to treat others better through the years when I see that they’re not perfect. Thinking about how I’D like to be treated when I make a mistake helps me to come back down to Earth.

    Thanks for opening this up to questioning ourselves, Tom.
