...this says it all...
"Perfection is not attainable, but if we chase perfection we can catch excellence." ~Vince Lombardi~
Your purpose is to make your audience see what you saw, hear what you heard, feel what you felt. Relevant detail, couched in concrete, colorful language, is the best way to recreate the incident as it happened and to picture it for the audience.

love has built
and looks out the window
which hope has opened...
"One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon-instead of enjoying the roses blooming outside our windows today." Breathe in today with every breath you take, stop the madness in your head even it's for a moment. Imagine all the people who can't see, hear, walk, talk..... You are blessed.... Act like it. Make someone's day today by smiling at them, giving them a hug, compliment them.... enjoy your roses.
Every morning is a fresh beginning. Every day is the world made new. Today is a new day. Today is my world made new. I have lived all my life up to this moment, to come to this day. This moment--this day--is as good as any moment in all eternity. I shall make of this day--each moment of this day--my time on earth. This is my day of OPPORTUNITY.
What do you see?
Do you see
“Opportunity is nowhere”
or do you see
“Opportunity is now here”?
Both are correct. And, like opportunity in the real world, both are accurate, based on your viewpoint and perception.
If you want more opportunity in your life, and if you want to take advantage of the opportunities you find, get to work learning and get off the couch and experience new things and people.
No matter how hard we work, how much we accomplish, what we create in life, how much money is in the bank, how many people's life we impact, we are going to die. We are not going to keep one item, not one experience, not one penny. We are going to keep nothing, yet we act like all the "stuff" we accumulate is the most important in life. I find it SOBERING and have to remind myself daily. Enjoy the limited time you have, not to take things to seriously, laugh more, no matter what the stakes, because its only temporary.To love with the fullest extent of your heart because in the end you will wish you had. Use your time most wisely!
“When you have confidence, you can have a lot of fun. And when you have fun, you can do amazing things.”
Excellence is... caring more than others think is wise. Risking more than others think is safe; Dreaming more than others think is practical. Expecting more than others think is possible." ~Winston Churchill~
If you're old enough, you may remember a time when the only thing "instant" was instant coffee - magic crystals that, when mixed with hot water, turned into actual coffee.
Today, however, almost everything is "instant."
There are 24-hour news channels so we don't have to wait until tomorrow or the evening news broadcast for the details of today's events. A political protest, earthquake, armed conflict, volcanic eruption, or major sporting event can occur almost anywhere in the world, and thanks to satellite communications, in an instant, the rest of the world not only knows about it, but people are watching streaming video of the event as it unfolds.
The moment a head of state, politician, or celebrity says or does something noteworthy (or more often, not so noteworthy), it's instantly recorded, reported, and repeated in the media.
We are living in an age that caters to instant gratification...where "fast" is often not fast enough.
So what does the need for instant gratification have to do with solving problems?
Because of our "instant" programming, we expect instant solutions to problems. And that expectation often causes us to too quickly analyze problems and too quickly come up with solutions.
Patience is a "virtue" and has to be exercised in all aspects of our life. Both personally and business wise. Remember that another set of eyes examining the situation is always good, and keep watch out for analysis paralysis. Allow the extra time to work in your favor.
