That which feeds me also destroys me
"I get up every morning determined to both change the world and to have one hell of a good time.
Sometimes this makes planning the day difficult."
E.B. White

While I love that quote, I don't exactly follow it. Well, not the first part, anyway. I've completely gotten over my want/need/desire to change the world. Fact is, the world is changed by whoever has the loudest voice, the most stamina, the biggest guns, and the strongest financial portfolio. I have none of those things.

What I do have is this little plot of land and a moderately distinctive sphere of influence. It is with this that I will do whatever work I can. I will continue to lead an exemplary life. I do like who I am, and what I have accomplished and what I am still planning on doing with my life.

I sometimes forget an adage that I feel is important for a leader. Pull, don't push. I've counted too many times in the last few years that I pushed or stalled. I'm not pleased with the results, and I can pinpoint why. So the only pushing I'm doing right now is pushing dead-weight out of the way so that I can go back to pulling those not anchored in the muck along in my wake. (for those not interested in my wake, create your own. It's a massive body of water and an endless amount of room for us all to play together)

Ok, so maybe I actually do follow that quote. I'm just defining the world as my little portion of it. The part that I actually can effect.

To Do List:
Create a water feature to the west
Create a fire feature to the south
Create an air feature to the east
Create an earth feature to the north
Create a temple to spirit as workspace
Write, write, write

Not all of us have a little plot to alter and create as we would wish. Creating your own personal world as you want it ultimately will change the world outside because of the influence on all who pass by. I applaud your efforts and successes.
