The 2K11 24/7 CCLXIII: The Things We Do in the Name of the Job

If you get a solid eight hours of sleep every night, I’m pretty sure that you’ve never experienced the haze. That’s what I’m feeling right now — the haze that settles over you when you’re not quite asleep, but very much not awake — you’re somewhere in between, […]

The 2K11 24/7 CCLXI: The End is the Beginning is the End

While Batman & Robin was a horrible movie, they did get something right — the soundtrack. While little of it got much fanfare, it’s still enjoyable. It includes two Smashing Pumpkins songs that’re meant to be reflections of one another — “The Beginning is the End is the Beginning” […]

The 2K11 24/7 CCLX: Sometimes it’s Better to Just Enjoy the Day

Today, I took some of my own advice and just enjoyed the day at hand. Between: Assembling a TV stand for Sarah; Going to Riverdale Farms to shoot wildlife; and Attending a surprise birthday party for my brother-in-law It’s been busy. Tomorrow’s another day! See you then, –Casey […]

The 2K11 24/7 CCLVIII: Another Lesson in Perception

I’ve mentioned perception before (http://201020k.com/the-2k11-247-cxxix-perception-is-in-the-eye-o); we often look at things the wrong way — without necessarily meaning to do so — and the world is a big place filled with lots of things.

The 2K11 24/7 CCLVII: Of Shortcuts and Selling Ourselves Short

Building on yesterday’s topic (http://bit.ly/reDgnB) of the 10,000 hours it takes to master a skill, an article I read this morning had me thinking about the other end of the spectrum. According to Metro’s “Just Google it: Students” article (http://www.metronews.ca/toronto/learn/article/968308–just-google-it-students), students use Google more than twice as much as any other research method, which […]

The 2K11 24/7 CCLVI: 10,000 Hours

There’s a saying about plans best laid that never turn out QUITE as intended rattling in the back of my head right now. All of us are born believing — if even for the briefest of moments — that we have the capacity to do something GREAT. Something AMAZING. That we can […]

The 2K11 24/7 CCLIV: Don’t Argue With Fools

“A wise man told me don’t argue with foolsCause people from a distance can’t tell who is who”–Jay-Z, “Takeover” Reading this blog, you might be led to believe that I’m an idealist. I write of a world that I can only dream of where we all get along and know […]
