Peter Benchley, the author of Jaws.
Sure, some people will be put off by your dedication and level of effort. Others will call you obsessed or think you've gone crazy. When they do, smile and say, "I'm not crazy, I'm just not you."
Not bad, but I thought that I would like this more than I did. I would put it somewhere between a So-So and a Pick.
(Continued)...acknowledgement. It's an accelerant. It bypasses the over-analytical brain and stimulates action.
Yes, my body was a mess, but mentally, I was still on my feet and in the race because I'm not living life for the same reasons as almost everyone else. The rewards I seek are internal, and if you have that mindset, you will find opportunities for growth everywhere.
(Continued)...which makes it harder to succeed, and with each subsequent failure, you will be more tempted to pity yourself.
This book poses the question of whether or not we will ever see a marathon run in two hours or less. It was published in 2015. In 2019, Eliud Kipchoge became the first to do so with a time of 1:59:40. But even if this milestone has already been reached, this book is still interesting and worth reading.
With a name like Dick Pound, you would assume that he would be a porn star, not a lawyer.🤣
🤣 If I ever run a marathon, I'm going to do this.
Discipline builds mental endurance because when effort is your main priority, you stop looking for everything to be enjoyable.
It would be impossible to overstate how important this book is. Read it.
Jesus Christ! These stupid names are getting out of control!😡
(Continued)...diagnosis, and that they would deliberately mislead lead them to protect them.
(Continued)...student's engagement. More intensive brain wave data is sent in real time to the teacher's computer, whose software generates real-time alerts about student's attention levels.
Once the 3500s were pulled, all the firefighters had to pick up their Saber VHF radios again, estimated by the department and Motorola to be between 15 and 18 years old. In a war on 9/11 between terrorists armed with box cutters and fire chiefs who had to rely on runners for messages, bin Laden ended up with the low-tech edge.
(Continued)... decided at the outset that all the department could do was a search and rescue operation.
(Continued)... instincts. So some firefighters diverted people who were slowing down the evacuation of others to waiting areas. As many as 40 to 60 people were sequestered between the 12th and 20th floors of the North Tower. Some stayed there until they died.
Out of college, I had been working as a temp at the United Airlines Employees Credit Union. My job was to enter codes for pre-ordered specialty meals into the system. If you flew on United Airlines in the early 90's and received Salisbury steak instead of the vegetarian meal you requested, it was because I was working the graveyard shift and did not give a shit.
(Continued)...suspect are trying to start a union.
Employee wellness programs (continued).
HIPPA protects individual's identifiable health information in the United States. But it doesn't apply when employers offer workplace wellness programs directly rather than in connection with their group health plans. Without laws preventing them from using the data collected through wellness programs, employers can mine the data they collect, which many do with abandon.
Great! So now I'll be hit with vibrations when I momentarily lose focus, which will anger me, which will also be revealed by the technology. 😡😡😡😡😡
If it tracked my emotional functions in real time, I would be fired in two seconds.😡
On Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee:
On the show, it looks like we're just riding around Los Angeles with a dash cam and multiple GoPros throughout the car, a guerilla-type production. But in reality, we had a police escort on a motorcycle and a production team in two vans, with three cameramen, a boom guy, and producers riding alongside and behind. Seeing the scope of what it took to make this show floored me.
