Default I agree with you...

Some add more, some split these up. Together they form a MAP of wants, and when you see you need to take ONE road with five lanes, it makes it easier to get your vehicle going in that direction.

Thanks Dien, I love Michael Keaton, just watched his performance as Ken Feinberg, and as always, he was excellent.

Hi Gordon,

If I have a flaw (cough!), it's probably that I have too many interests... or wants!

Anyway, I've been experimenting with what Michael Keaton said...

"And then if you can live in that ... [i.e. in what you want] ... you kind of raise your consciousness."

I interpret to "live in that" as meaning to focus on what you've figured out you REALLY want...

I agree with you that what you REALLY want is not just one thing... It will have multiple elements, as we are not one-dimensional creatures...

So, I've written down what I want ... it comes down to a monetary goal as well as some personal life and family-oriented goals too...

And, now that they're written down, I re-read it several times a day... I use it like a "compass reading" to re-orient my direction throughout the day...

I think it does help keep you "heading" towards those key Wants, and less distracted by the various other fun things to do...!

We'll see how it works...

Best wishes,


P.S. By the way, I'm always trying out new things... That's how you keep improving, yes?
