The world only spins forward

Larry Janesky: Think Daily

What happened yesterday only carries the meaning you made out of it.  Was it good?  Was it bad, helpful, or useful?  

Take what helps from your past, and leave the rest.  It’s over.  

Today is a new day and you are a new person.

What are you doing and where are you going NOW?

Law over violence, freedom over power

Larry Janesky: Think Daily

We all need the rule of law and its enforcement in our community to avoid being robbed (or worse) by men who feel they can get ahead by using their darker natures.  But we don’t need a ruling body with excessive power controlling too much of our peaceful activities.

It’s a balance that our government was originally designed for, and in large measure it works when not distorted or ignored.  

Let us pay attention to this balance.

The War on Drugs

Larry Janesky: Think Daily

Drugs are bad.  

I’m very much an anti-drug person; but anyone can get them. In a recent 5-year period, heroin overdoses went up by 40% despite the War on Drugs having been going on for 40 years. It’s not working. The unintended consequence has been that the street price mark-up is robust, and dealing drugs has been taken up by urban males. The difficult job of controlling this has fallen to the police, and there has been strife on both sides.  

Market forces are stronger than legal ones – a lesson we should remember and use to our advantage.

Urban males who have been shuffled through the failing urban schools, now have arrests on their records and cannot get good jobs. Our prisons are full of people with drug convictions and drug related gang activity. This all leads to a bigger problem of poverty and all the problems that come with it.

Unintended consequences always outnumber intended ones. By ending the war on drugs, (taking the market off the street) we can remove the alternative of dealing drugs to make a living, and leave no other option for urban males but finding a good job.

Saving a lifetime of effort and experience

Larry Janesky: Think Daily

Sometimes a moment of insight can save you from pursuing the wrong path; one you would have been down for years to realize it was wrong, or maybe forever.

Can you save yourself a decade or so?

Good vs Evil

Larry Janesky: Think Daily

In the battle of good versus evil, good is at a disadvantage because it plays by the rules.

Evil doesn’t care about the rules.

Obstacles to Evil

Larry Janesky: Think Daily

“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil, is for good men to do nothing.”

When we see evil in any powerful or diluted form; something or someone going wrong in any area arena, we must stand in its way and say “NO”.

You wouldn’t just go along with it, would you?

Routine Self-Discipline

Larry Janesky: Think Daily

Successful people have made habits of doing the things that produce results.  Focused time, exercise, doing the hard stuff first, and doing things that are not fun without delay or complaint.

Is self discipline a “routine” for you?

Learn or start from scratch

Larry Janesky: Think Daily

Learning is necessary for human evolution.  How much time and money do you invest in learning what others found out the hard (long) way?

Mind/body connection

Larry Janesky: Think Daily

Your mind changes your body, AND your body changes your mind.

Sit (stand) up straight, hold your head high, breathe fully and smile.  

How do you feel?
