Success is a Cat From Hell

I don’t have big life goals. I never did. When I was a kid, the one dream I had for my future was to own a pizza restaurant. I liked pizza, and as a pizza restaurant owner, I could gulp as much pizza as I wanted. It was a good plan then, and it’s a good plan now.  Some people, including myself, would call me lazy, crazy, or even useless. I may be all the above, but I am mostly clueless. I don’t understand the concept of goals, or rather I can’t grasp their premise. I don’t “get” goals,...

The Secret to Learning Anything and to a Good Night’s Sleep

I couldn’t sleep no matter what I did. And I thought I could try and do the unthinkable.  Before that, I exercised, had a hot shower, meditated, gulped two cups of chamomile tea, and counted white sheep. Then I counted more and more. But it takes just one black wolf and its howls to disturb the sound of silence. A sick brain that won’t quit troubling me with either its endless energy or stupid worries.  Why wouldn’t it be quiet?

According to his operant conditioning theory, if we behave right and display the desirable action, there will be a positive reward.

“Hey, kid, wait!” “What is it?” he said, as he walked away. “WAIT!” I shouted, “I am not your enemy. Why does it always have to be like this with you?” “Like this? What do you mean, Mr. Time Traveler from the Future, if that is even a real thing?” “Black and White. With you, everything is black and white at all times.” “What if everything is black and white? Why do you care so much?” he said while shrugging his shoulders. “Don’t tell me you forgot again?” “Huh? I have no idea what you are talking about.” “How...

Who’s Afraid Of The Big Bad Wolf?

He was a small-town kid, and by the time he was dead, he became a legend and a giant, one of the greatest impacts on the American culture, and still is. He failed over 300 times in the pursuit of his dreams without losing enthusiasm. With every failure came a lesson, with many tries came a few victories. He went bankrupt, was evicted from his house and his studio, and colleagues and friends abandoned him when they lost interest in his vision. Other people said he lacked creativity and artistry, rejected his work many times, told him his animations...
