8 Words That Could Change Your Life
This morning I've been thinking about words.
I love words.
I must admit that I am feeling super-smart because I am a new subscriber to The New York Times Sunday paper, so I spent about 3 hours off and on reading it yesterday...
Anyway, I watched a show on Showtime over the weekend called Richard Pryor: Omit the Logic. Worth watching if you have the chance. But it is the phrase Omit the Logic that I keep thinking about.
Is it possible to omit the logic and would it be smart?
For me, I think I could use some omitting of logic. I tend to think a lot about things in order to make the best decision, especially about Community Partners of Dallas. How many backpacks to order for the back-to-school drive, what is the plan for the 25th anniversary in 2014, how can we get more caseworkers to read our newsletter, etc.
To me, omitting the logic means to look at something in a different way, turn it upside down.
And this brought me back to my my favorite question and the 8 words that could change your life (courtesy of my friend Marilyn Stidham):
What would you do if you weren't afraid?
Let's omit the logic and be fearless on this beautiful Monday!
