Yesterday, I met a Don , with whom I had a great exchange of thoughts. Today I kinda trolled onto his blog and read this
"Some people surprise you, others don't. Some people know what to say, when to say it, and when to be quiet. Others don't know what to say, or say too much, or say something and don't mean it. That's just the way it is."
Yes Don, you actully surprise me. I really don't know what to say--other then, Kudo to you !!!
Don has posting some very powerful conversation and thoughts. Strength, Courage and Conviction is silently being portrayed. Way to Don !!
Blogging is just like high school. And, just like high school, who is cool right now doesn’t really matter. What matters is who is still cool in 10 years, and you are much more likely to get there if you don’t listen to Scoble’s advice than if you do. "
Rule Two: You do not touch my daughter in front of me. You may glance at her, so long as you do not peer at anything below her neck. If you cannot keep your eyes or hands off of my daughter's body, I will remove them."

Worst of the year
1.Physical excise – no Exercise plan. Managed to play tennis only thrice. 2.Learning – Did not study for anything new. Not my style at all 3.Drinking- Not a day, that I have gone without a drink.

OK, don’t take everything for granted. Life is too short to be consumed by work and all that fun stuff. Pick yourself up, don’t feel sorry because you did not get laid as much as you wanted (note to self: Make it up next year). Cut out the wines with supper. Make plans to create an excise chart. Work on building a good relationship with someone of the other sex. Make time to call family and friends. Stop punishing yourself for not saving money and get yourself a puppy dog to keep yourself company !!!
