“The Architect”

People are going to say, “You’ve changed.” To which I may or may not respond, “Not really.” However, I think I’ve noticed that I’ve gotten a lot quicker at analyzing and then building not only a decision but actually making the action.

In other news, there have been people that I’ve been seeing that I can’t ever imagine myself getting along with. There’s also new people I see that I instantly get along with. Is it personality? Which similarities or differences are most important? Why?

What’s the blueprint?

Mystery

READ MORE

“History will be kind to me for I intend to write it.”

Study and learn from your mistakes. Read them all.

    I intend to read it. It’s a mystery.

Then close that chapter in the book when you’re done. If there’s nothing left then it must be right.

    I intend to right it. It’s my story.

Razor

READ MORE

In the right hands, a razor can be used very comfortably and confidently. Even though it has the potential to cut you open, a skilled user of the sharp blade will be able to maneuver and navigate the intricacies of complex contours.

It’s good to make decisions that require great confidence. But even the tiniest of mistakes have big consequences. A small lapse in judgement and suddenly a large missed opportunity is imprinted into your mind. Even still, there are unfortunate factors arising outside of your control that can cause you to slip and lose your grip.

I won’t ever forget the lessons that I’ve learned the hard way. But why did I play with a razor? Too much confidence and suddenly.. I’m bleeding. Damn, it cuts deep.

Earthworm

READ MORE

“We are all worms. But I believe that I am a glow-worm.”

Dissect them all. I don’t see what’s so special. Dig deeper.

Miss

READ MORE

You can never miss something until it’s gone. That’s like the definition of miss.

When will it hit? I need to hurry up and learn this lesson.

Unlock

READ MORE

“To hell with circumstances; I create opportunities.”

What use is a key if you never use it? In other words, the doors are closed and you don’t foresee going to that place anytime soon? Like there’s no point in keeping a key if you’re just waiting for the circumstance to appear in which you need it.

I gave away the keys I no longer need or use and the weight of my key chain is so much lighter. I don’t really see the benefit of carrying them around. The irony is if you get rid of a key you’re unable to use it actually unlocks more than before.

Unlocking opportunities – what would be the point if someone held a master key? Would you have to use it on every single door? What’s so special? There’s plenty of doors. And more than one key. For example, you can pick the lock, you can pry it open with force, you can kick it open, whatever. But first you need to walk up to the door. Then knock. Or ring the doorbell. Maybe even create your own door.

Hell, wipe the dust off your feet and pick up the doormat. Create the keys that you need.

Desperate

READ MORE

“Confront them with annihilation, and they will then survive; plunge them into a deadly situation, and they will then live. When people fall into danger, they are then able to strive for victory.”

It feels like you’re just sitting at the cusp. But something is missing. Urgency. An absolute need. This is what you must imagine to transform a plateau into a scalable mountain. Survival and victory are not disparate. But you must be desperate.

“I never worry about action, but only inaction.”

Victor

READ MORE

Victory or death. In time.

“All will soon change.”

Warmonger

READ MORE

“There is many a boy here today who looks on war as all glory, but, boys, it is all hell.”

Unleash all the ghosts and demons from your past that haunt you. Let all hell break loose. Get down to business.

“War is the business of barbarians.”

It Get

READ MORE

“It’s not the daily increase but daily decrease. Hack away at the unessential.”

Cut your losses. And get after it.
