Read or Condemn Yourself to Death by Ignorance

The newsletter for those prepared to look and see what is there.

No place for those who blindly bow to

the unholy alter of tyrannical authority.

Wednesday 5th December 2018


G’day,

As I was walking along this morning I got to thinking about how to improve various conditions in life. The thought occured to me that one of the most valuable and powerful four word questions in the English language is, “What would it take?”

For several reasons. First, it focuses on the product, what it is you want to accomplish. Second, it demands that one focus not on any old thing you can do, but rather what doingnesses and sub-products will actually bring about the desired result.

So if you are up for some improvement in your life, this week make a list of non-optimum conditions in your job, family, marriage, health, friendships, social groups or society at large that you would like to improve or improvements you would like to see come to pass.

Then ask, “What would it take?” to fix the non-optimum condition or see the improvement occur. May be that will bring to light one or more solutions. Maybe not.

If not, the undercut might be, “What action can I undertake that will start to improve the condition?”

And then slot that action into your schedule for the coming week.

Rarely do major changes happen instantly. Most people are put off when they confront the effort required to accomplish a large goal. And that part of the mind that is set up to trip you up will almost certainly be ready to offer up any number of reasons why you cannot accomplish your goal. So don’t be deterred by the magnitude of the effort involved and all the reasons that will come to you about why you cannot do it. Just keep putting it there that you will accomplish your target.

I read that it takes 10,000 hours of practice to become world class at most things. Sports, playing a musical instrument, painting etc. Sounds like a lot when you say it like that. But many people spend two hours a night chilling out. Probably not most of the people I know, but many do.

Put that two hours a night into a project of your passion and that’s 730 hours a year. 15 years of spare time and you could be world class at a skill of your passion.

Probably most people cannot confront a 15 year plan. But you could confront two hours tomorrow night. And with that success under the belt you could probably confront doing the same the next night. And most things you want to improve won’t take 10,000 hours!

I am told if you do something for 30 days you’ve established a habit that is harder to break than keep.

So this is my “end of year” motivational talk to you to decide how you are going to improve some aspect of your life and not be deterred from implementing those actions that will lead to your success.

So this is a toast from me to you, “To your unbridled success!”

As we head into the festive season I hope this finds you fit and well. Here is a sampling of what crossed my digital desk over the last week.

Iceland has gained the admiration of populists in recent years by doing that which no other nation in the world seems to be willing or capable of doing: prosecuting criminal bankers for engineering financial collapse for profit.

I was a background actor for five years and encountered hundreds of actors from A to Z list, but when I was working “House” Billy Connolly came to our craft services table (not his own trailer), hung out with us between takes, traded jokes, was genuinely thrilled and surprised to know that one of my favorite movies is “Water” and posed for pics with me and a Kiwi buddy as they both sported their tribal tats... ...when you meet someone that cool you damned well need to let them know they are special. And Billy IS special as hell./p>

My opinion is that is insanity to have nuclear weapons or nuclear power when we as a species have not been shown to be trustworthy enough to protect all life fropm potential destruction with its use. Here is some evidence that confirms my point of view.

‚ÄúThirty-three years ago to the day, the United States narrowly missed a nuclear holocaust on its soil. The so-called ’Damascus Accident’ involved a Titan II intercontinental ballistic missile mishap at a launch complex outside Damascus, Arkansas. During a routine maintenance procedure, a young worker accidentally dropped a nine-pound tool in the silo, piercing the missile’s skin and causing a major leak of flammable rocket fuel. Sitting on top of that Titan 2 was the most powerful thermonuclear warhead ever deployed on an American missile. The weapon was about 600 times more powerful than the bomb that destroyed Hiroshima. For the next nine hours, a group of airmen put themselves at grave risk to save the missile and prevent a massive explosion that would’ve caused incalculable damage.

“The story is detailed in Eric Schlosser’s new book, “Command and Control: Nuclear Weapons, the Damascus Accident, and the Illusion of Safety,” which explores how often the United States has come within a hair’s breadth of a domestic nuclear detonation or an accidental war. Drawing on thousands of pages of recently declassified government documents and interviews with scores of military personnel and nuclear scientists, Schlosser shows that America’s nuclear weapons pose a grave risk to humankind.”

Until next time,
dream big dreams,
plan out how to achieve them,
be continually executing your plans,
enlist people to your causes,
travel and/or read widely, preferably both,
all the while observing what you observe
rather than thinking what you are told to think,
think well of your fellow man,
take time to help your fellow man,
he sorely needs it and it will help you too,
eat food that is good for your body,
exercise your body,
take time to destress,
and do the important things
that make a difference -
they are rarely the urgent ones!

Tom
