Well Broke, first you just make my day. I mean I evoked a person with my rantings to join up to a great Forum so he could share his ideas, what
better compliment is there than that. And yes, I am not beyond giving a self serving plug to a great Forum, and they are doing what I wish Project
Camelot would have done as well, because this forum has a nice simple approach with it's advertising through adsense, but allowing people to share
Second, I go through stages, lots of rain this week, and I am inside and I need a break from other work, so I do up some videos, and chill, and have
fun. Now I could sit here, and let people respond and not reply, that is what some do. However I am truly interested in what people say, but often I
keep it under my hat, and then tell them when they were successful in inspiring me, if you knew me personally, you would know this.
Now, yes, all my videos are longer than they need to be. There are alot of people who can take that and put it in 10 words, it would be a done, next.
But you see, I like talking. And I like seeing myself on camera, and I enjoy telling stories. I like to hone my craft of doing up a 8 minute video
and not editing, it can be tough, I think this one was a one edit video. I could have edited by why bother, I mean, what is the point unless the edit
is truly needed.
Now I type about 120 words a minute, well on this laptop is is more like 60. All my replys are long, and I am not a very concise guy, so there was no
insult there, and you know what I love that about me. If someone I loved passed away I would keep them around a few extra days, etc., I am in no
Now, you are right, but there are more than 4 categories, but that is an improvement. Again however you are logically making a category. What I am
saying is that yes, there are the people who are sensitive with less armor, and I will agree that people have adopted insensitivity to deal with
issues that others have that would drag them down to acknowledge, but whom themselves might be sensitive to anothers insensitivity. It is just a
lens, from that perspective.
What I am saying is, and the reason I put it in the video, that the insensitivity might help the person who is being insensitive and let them stay in
their comfort zone, but in the end not asking questions leads to more problems, it does not de-escalate the problem. Much of it has to do with trying
to find some sort of empathy.
Now, see because I devote alot of time to my threads, you then made an assumption of inference. You assume I am placing alot of my life in my thread,
and am caught up to a point it might be a negative thing to my life. You then suggested I get out, etc., you started off great and then even you got
side tracked with judgments.
See, this is my life now. I had the kids, the house, and all those things. I was not happy, yet so you say wow, do you not wish more more?
As we speak 50 people are arriving for at work in 5 companies. They are able to do their work today because I am efficient and ensure that when they
arrive that things are running well, and I do it well because I am detailed, I can be long winded and consider things before I act, I have learned it
is not what you do, it is often what you do not do that counts.
And as we speak 3 web servers serving millions of hits per day are being maintained by me, and on top of that I personally own 120 domains, and have
many dozens of sites up and running.
Then on top of that, today I will probably produce another video, write another 50 threads in this and the other 3 forums I am on, and design a few
websites. I redesigned 40 websites in one day last week, because for example, I use scripting and know how to do things in mass.
Now at 2pm this afternoon I get on a bus and hang out at a coffee shop, and I talk to people and chill and basically I got the life of an amazing
person, I am the richest guy in the coffee shop, but the poorest often times and might have enough for only a coffee. And I can hardly wait to get
home to write you another email. That is because you are important to me, and you possibly are in the traffic there with a whole different form of
ideals doing what you love.
However ironically people think I do nothing. They do not see me paint, or know how many projects I have on the go, and they just see me as this guy
on his laptop at a coffee shop. And now and then a person will ask, and they will go holy crap, I mean you are doing all of that. Yep. How? I
dunno, I just am.
And yet I patiently read your words, and the word of others, and read judgement after judgement about my life, and my over focus on my threads, or as
the case might be, and just exist and write back because I love people, and I love you. And that is what we are missing, and most of these posts. It
is all a judgement. People are not asking questions, they write first, and then think later, and I do that too. It is easy in this world. However I
am trying to find a better way for me, and well, I am glad I roped you in from the guest mode to a member mode.
Thanks for joining us.
