How Things Work

By The "Original" Mike Smith

“The WORDS I often THINK and use 
CREATE MY DAILY ATTITUDES
GUIDING THE ACTIONS FROM WHICH I CHOOSE, 
To FORM THE HABITS so HARD TO LOSE, 
HIGHLIGHTING THE CHARACTER others see 
and they decide that that is ME,
AND THAT is all THEY LET ME BE
and THUS IS BUILT MY DESTINY.” 

Words matter, choose them well.

 


 

"What I Think You Think"

By The "Original" Mike Smith

It's not what you think and it's not what I think.
It's what I think you think you think I think that tends to cause us to think what we think we think. I think. Don't you think?

But...

Have you noticed we are quite often wrong about what we think they're thinking, and most of the time, they weren't thinking about us at all?

It's best to:

Talk with them and ask about what they think before we decide what it is we think they think and surely before we share that thinking with anyone else!

 


 

To Get Involved or Not

By The "Original" Mike Smith

"If it's not illegal, immoral, or fattening...
if it won't hurt anyone or anything...
and I might learn something and I might have a good time...
then I might as well give it a shot!"
