quick note

I haven't disappeared, I've just been busy. I've got a few things I want to talk about but haven't made time to do so, and I haven't forgotten about posting goals for 2007. This is basically a quick placeholder, so the calendar shows I posted in the last (half-)week of January; I doubt I'll get to posting later this evening. However I do intend to make a more substantial post tomorrow.

All I'll say for the moment is one of the thoughts that's been prominent in my mind for the past month: 2007 is the Year of Change. No matter how reluctant I am about making changes or how slow I am to get started (case in point: end of first month, haven't posted goals yet), this is the Year of Change, because it needs to be. We'll see what I can make happen.

And no, I'm not talking about having a sex change. Just Getting Things Done, and Moving On With Life. That sort of thing.

the year of change, wow it has a ring to it for sure... but... I'll jump on the bandwagon... the Martial Arts Center for Personal Development was intended to mark change... and dude. uhm... I guess, I'm not willing to make a wager at this time. PLEASE prove me wrong... if thats the extent of the change, prove me wrong... it'll secretly mean so much more has changed... get a mohawk, and dye is green! thats change! I've got your back, I'm just not peaking out from behind you, just yet.

Dude, are you still harping on about that? Come on.

First of all, if you think that taking up martial arts wasn't a huge change for me, you're crazy.

Second of all, you're the one who keeps claiming that it was supposed to be some huge phenomenon that would transform me in every way, and it failed. I was never making that kind of claim at the time, and I'm still not. I only ever said that it was a tool to help me with some problem areas and I hoped I could get some good changes out of it.

Third of all, if you think I didn't get any kind of beneficial change out of it, you're wrong.

Fourth of all, maybe you should re-read my post here again. You'll note how I put in qualifiers like acknowledging that when it comes to making changes, I'm reluctant and slow, and that I said "we'll see what I can make happen". So all your implications that there's nothing to this aren't necessary. I know quite well who I'm up against, thanks.

Last of all, "get a mohawk and dye it green, that's change"? No it's not! Not anything more than a change of clothes. Don't be silly.

I just remember the post cool-aid drinking meeting marketing info that was said to me thats all. And at the time, it was the one change to rule all other changes, for more than just you. I guess its unfair to leave it just with you. Others drank the cool-aid and the changes didn't hit them either.

I also should've mentioned the changes that have happened in the last 4 years that have been superb! you know full well if I had to pick between Phil and Phil in the Superbowl, I'd pick Phil. sorry Phil. : )

Phil kick Phil's ass! Go Phil!

oh getting a mohawk and dying it green is big change... not just superficial. people will treat you differently... you might not have a job (depending on the environment) and you might be able to collect appearance fees. This is all different from the norm. What sort of Change are you looking to achieve? I guess thats coming later, but now you've only got 11 months to set to those changes. Me, this year, I'm changing my mind, often.

Changing Music genres would be a big change. have you heard Lyle Lovett and his Large Band?!? Penguins are so sensitive to my needs...

i say, start with sideburns (not lamb chops or anything, just small ones). many people have mohawks in seattle, it's the norm - which is one of the things i really like about seattle. make sure you copy your list of desired changes onto a large, large piece of paper and put it somewhere you can look at it everyday to remind yourself. good luck!
