From a NYT article by Oliver Burkeman. Commenting on the recent incident where 21 attendees of a Tony Robbins “Unleash the Power Within” event suffered burns while attempting to walk over hot coals:

“Mr. Robbins reportedly encourages firewalkers to think of the hot coals as “cool moss.” Here’s a better idea: think of them as hot coals.”

“Just for Today”.

I used to have this on my old phone at start up. It reminded me to try my best, be my best, give of myself, take care of myself, deal with issues, and do things as best I can Just for Today. I used to really live by that. When times got tough it helped to remind me that I could actually make today special. In some way. I can remember going through bad days and saying to myself, OK, well is today a great day or not? It“s up to me.

I had forgotten that saying and how it kept me going. until I switched on that phone again recently. It had the very same effect on me. I am using two phones at the moment, so am using that old one again daily. I am so glad it is there to remind me.

Well not so new, but aside from a Chuck Norris joke, this is all I have that I recently think is good; Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing it is stupid. Albert Einstein
