Motivation!

While your sitting at work in your office it is often nice to have something to remind you of where you'd like to be and provide motivation. Ran across this today and thought you all might enoy this!



More "motivators" available at www.despair.com ...no affiliation but they sure beat the traditional posters that make me want to gag!

Cam, do you know the difference between FEAR and HORROR???

FEAR is when for the ONCE you can't "do" it TWICE.
HORROR is when TWICE you cant "do" it ONCE !!!!!!

My wife says I'm as lousy as ever...

Last month I took my wife and two little girls out on Port Royal Sound (Hilton Head Island, SC). We went out five miles on a strong ebb tide with 15 knot wind over the stern, which sling-shot us out of the sound on our C30 at 7-8 knots. Unfortunately I'd misread the tide table, which I realized when it was time to head home. We tacked close-hauled for two hours, barely making any headway, and my wife was sure we'd be "lost at sea forever." My suggestion was to heave-to and pass the time below playing pokey-pokey to reduce her overwhelming sense of impending doom. She refused, as the kids wouldn't leave us alone. She did, however, make me a sandwich.

With regard to where you would like to be why are you not there? This is what one man once said about that.

A Quote From Sterling Hayden's Book, Wanderer


To be truly challenging, a voyage, like a life, must rest on a firm foundation of financial unrest. Otherwise, you are doomed to a routine traverse, the kind known to yachtsmen who play with their boats at sea... cruising it is called. Voyaging belongs to seamen, and to the wanderers of the world who cannot, or will not, fit in. If you are contemplating a voyage and you have the means, abandon the venture until your fortunes change. Only then will you know what the sea is all about.

I've always wanted to sail to the south seas, but I can't afford it." What these men can't afford is not to go. They are enmeshed in the cancerous discipline of security. And in the worship of security we fling our lives beneath the wheels of routine - and before we know it our lives are gone.


What does a man need - really need? A few pounds of food each day, heat and shelter, six feet to lie down in - and some form of working activity that will yield a sense of accomplishment. That's all - in the material sense, and we know it. But we are brainwashed by our economic system until we end up in a tomb beneath a pyramid of time payments, mortgages, preposterous gadgetry, playthings that divert our attention for the sheer idiocy of the charade.


The years thunder by, The dreams of youth grow dim where they lie caked in dust on the shelves of patience. Before we know it, the tomb is sealed.


Where, then, lies the answer? In choice. Which shall it be: bankruptcy of purse or bankruptcy of life?
