Good thinkers are always in demand.      A person who knows how will always have a job, but a person who knows why will always be his boss! – John C. Maxwell

 I highly recommend this outstanding book written in 2011 by John C. Maxwell.

The table of contents is divided into 11 chapters of which read mind-expanding topics like:

  1. Cultivate big picture thinking
  2. Engage in focused thinking
  3.  Harness creative thinking
  4. Employ realistic thinking
  5. Utilize strategic thinking
  6. Implore possibility thinking
  7. Learn from reflective thinking
  8. Question popular thinking
  9. Benefit from shared thinking
  10. Practice unselfish thinking
  11. Rely on bottom-line thinking

Other quotes from the book are…

“Good thinkers solve problems, they never lack ideas that can build an organization, and they always have hope for a better future.”

“Good thinkers rarely find themselves at the mercy of ruthless people who would take advantage of them or try to deceive them.”

    Take a light hearted  attitude towards life and life will smile back at you

    One day this last week I was getting ready to go and rounding up all my things go out the door for the day. Two things that I take every day are my cool polarized sunglass covers that go over my prescription Progressive bifocals to protect me from the Gastly hot piercing Nevada Desert Sun and my Xela high-definition Bluetooth earbuds, so as I walk through the day with a lilt to my step and a smile on my face. 

    Music has a way of turning the mundane into special.

    I can listen to my playlists on either YouTube Red or Spotify or iHeart Radio or one of my many books on LibriVox, Audible, or hear vocal recognition software voice read me one of the many digital books that I have.

    I also listen to music while I’m doing certain kinds of work that just makes life happier and better. 

    Music helps you dance through your day instead of drag on. 

    If you’re walking or exercising, music helps you go farther and faster.

     In scientific studies it’s been proven that Baroque music- harpsichords, cellos and chamber music that is, helps concentration when you’re doing work it’s very technical and homework.

    I saw my teddy bear smiling at me from the seat across from me and decided he would make a nice place holder for my glasses and my headset ….and just laughed at the thought of the idea concept of doing this picture.

     It made me laugh doing the picture makes me laugh looking at it and I didn’t forget my stuff…. so that makes it worth doing!

    When you take a light-hearted Whimsical attitude towards life and living everything seems to go better and you’re more relaxed. 

    If you do technical work  especially  or work like writing web content that is very technical or resumes  geared to round up all of people’s  certifications and achievements and get them a better job -and live a better life, these things are very technical and cerebral. A little bit of lighthwartedness goes a long way.

     If you’re an engineer, doctor, scientist do a job that’s very tech-oriented, it’s nice to just take time off to do something fun for no reason at all, but for the sheer fact that you can.

    All work and no play makes for a very dull day. When you interject humor, some whimsy in your day you make your steps lighthearted, your attitude improves, and everybody around you will thank you for it.

    Treat others as you want to be treated and smile and be kind to everyone you meet in a non judging way. The world will smile back at you in return.

    Be a Flame That Burns Bright and Ignites a Chain Reaction of Passion

    Let our actions and Who We Are and our Persona  we build each day is so great that it burns a flame that lights the paths of everyone you come in contact with.

     Let the flame that flicker’s frpm the charisma and enthusiasm that you exclude never become faint, but always burn brightly and strong.

    If a candle was a metaphor for the whole world, let the imprint you left from the flame that you ignited from the passion you excluded leave its mark in the wax forever…..and may you leave your unique fingerprint in the hearts and souls of all you meet in a good way.

    But you make a difference because you can, and don’t compare what you do to what others are doing.

    Let the indelible impression you leave be the catalyst for others to do what they never believed they ever could, and that they didn’t realize they had what it took to create a spark, let alone a Flame!

    My Country Tis of Thee by The Washington Men’s Camerata With a Plea For a New President 

    America desperately needs a new president.

    After watching a very in-depth story on CNN about President Donald Trump and how he denies any kind of collusion -but there was and is now-and denied getting information from Russia to basically destroy Hillary Clinton in the election and how many different votes came in from Russia!

    A lot of very corrupt things happened with the election that were disclosed on the CNN news story.

     I don’t know if Trump paid people of Russia to create fake news on Facebook but it is FACT NOT hypothesis and was disclosed that it was done.

    He’s about as close to being a Russian and a KKK member because Trump truly feels white is a supreme race!!!!!! I personally think that that kind of mentality makes you unfit to be the president of the United States because we have the largest proportion of immigrants anywhere in the world.

    Being an American citizen, and  being 56 years young now; I am proud of my country but not its leader. That will change though.

    I think all the atrocities against America and all of its wonderful, unique people of many colors, many cultures, and many faiths should constitute a ticket right out the door in the White House.

    Well then go back to his racist community. He uses the word God but he’s a hypocrite.

    Trump’s insults alone should allow Congress to press the ejector seat in The White House on Trump and catapult him back into the all white, very hatefilled group he belongs in, not leading our country and polluting it with his filthy rotten, backward ideas.

    Shouldn‘t it?

    What Trump has done and proven should not only get him thrown our buy a cushy seat in s prison cell for creating a collusion with the Russian people and rigging the election, physically and verbally abusing nearly every woman who dealt with him.

    Shouldn’t it?

    Trump has done way more horrendous things than Nixon ever did with Watergate. So what‘s the hold up on getting a new face to lead our country?

     I am sick of his stupid Twitter posts, which the media has promoted and made news.

    Here’s one for the record –Twitter posts are not news.

    There is nothing that he’s printing that’s newsworthy; it’s just hype that gets people to look at the station’s news.

     Tweet’s are not news. 

    What he is writing does not make him look good as the President of the United States. 

    With every tweet that President Trump writes it makes him look more infantile and more like a second grader who was and still is an overgrown brat in elementary school

    We can’t operate a country where the president fires everybody that he disagrees with.

     Before you know it, he’s going to fire everyone in Congress, one by one, and Trump will be the only one left!……if we don’t intervene and look at the big, ugly picture Trump painted I’m hia 1st God Forsaken Year Of Presidency since his inauguration.

    The kind of brat that the principal suspended. Trump was the kind of brat that was always in fights with every other kid the kid who was and is “the troublemaker” and that’s exactly what Donald Trump is today in 2018. He’s a troublemaker and does his best job when he’s putting people against each other and Fanning Flames of Hatred and stupidity. 

    United States of America is too good a country for Trump and we need a replacement immediately. 

    Go to your Senator or Governor your Mayor and talk to them about signing imoeachment papers, if you haven’t signed them online already.

     Do anything else you can do to preserve the class and integrity of The USA.

    A new president would be the breath of fresh air we all need and deserve.

     Get others who are like-minded to help you strength comes in numbers.

    There’s more people in United States and there are him he’s out numbered. 

    It’s just a matter of time and Trump will be impeached.

    With all those tweets what else is he doing? 

    That’s what I want to know with all the time he has to send all those tweets all over the place, what else does he do that’s actually productive and what has he done to ever help American people

    Nothing is the answer.

    In between all his tweets he’s done everything humanly possible to break up every good quality America had.

    From the extraordinary Obamacare which that’s one of the reasons I voted for Obama years ago was so that no insurance company could turn a person down because you have a pre-existing illness like what I have.

    He had no plan of what program he was going to put in place when he destroyed the first that’s called insanity. He never once stopped to look at the big picture of what he was doing and the chain reaction that would happen from him cutting Medical Care from millions of people. According to the medical examiner that just gave him a physical he’s in pretty decent shape for 71 years old but not everyone at 71 is doing as well as he is and many have chronic disabilities like myself and you basically get very good at adapting and seeing how you feel and how you feel dictates what you do. 

    Trump has not had a very thorough cognitive and psychiatric assessment which and many others would like to see done; and not done by one of his doctors  but then by a private doctor that doesn’t know him has never seen him  and doesn’t care  and someone who can’t be paid to say what he is going to say.

    I am certain he would fail it.

    lf the insults all of the racism all of the garbage all of the filth  and most importantly all of the ways that he has made the United States look like a laughing stock,  low class  disgusting place -and it is not a disgusting place . 

    It’s a place where people died to get the freedoms that we now have  and we worked years to develop the kind of relationships with other countries that we had before he was president.

    Trump has many friends in Russia. If we don’t do something about this situation, I can see Hitler replayed all over again.

    Since he’s been president, we have disabled people without insurance now, we have things in place that were really huge things about solar energy that have been ruined, we have things regarding our internet privacy that have been destroyed for the first time in our lives With the government wanting to look at all of our emails and texts! 

    We have people wanting to invade our privacy take away all of our rights as an American citizen to believe any faith that we choose and this is corrupt. 

    As an American citizen, do everything in your power to talk to your legislators in your area of the United States and see what you can do to impeach Donald Trump and get back the freedoms that we once had as American citizens before he tries to change the Constitution!

     Trump has been Fanning the Flames of hatred since his first day in office it’s about time it ends.

    I was watching the CNN News live on the status of the government shutdown here in the USA. And they were talking about with it I’m shutting down the Statue of Liberty and what the Statue of Liberty represents. Well everything that’s on that extraordinary sign by the Statue of Liberty is not what Trump represents nothing about Trump is synonymous with America or the Statue of Liberty and what it represents.

    They’re worried about the fact that the Statue of Liberty will be closed and when are we going to president that represents the ideals that are engraved on that statue instead of worrying about whether it’s open or not?

    Did Trump forget that America is composed of immigrants and that’s what he’s been bitching about and making life hell for every kind of nationality you can think of, including many of the Senators who have family were from other countries.

    I believe that if you have lived in this country for 20 years 30 years and 10 years you’re an American that’s all you’ve ever known if you’re an adult and I think it’s against their civil rights to send them anywhere else and have them be away from their families. I think it’s morally and ethically wrong.

    A song that will make you want to dance, even if you don’t know how 

    This song is one of many on my new Spotify music playlist I whimsically called “Songs to Listen to In a Convertible With Top Down!”

    I want to go to go to southern California again for a real trip with a friend -I know not who he is yet-but I have a few people in mind, but it all has to with schedules.
    Picture cruising down pacific Coast Highway in a Mustang Turbo GT Fuel Injected Convertible. ..see the sights, take photos, soakng up the beautiful sea air, seeing the sapphire blue sea again, bougainvilleas, seagulls and happy people, so this is on  the playlist and I’ll take.

    Watch “What I’m Reading, My Top 5 Rules for Success, When to Quit Your Job – Entrepreneur AMA #8” on YouTube

    I would add to what my friend Evan Carmichael says about “when to quit your job”…. when your dream job is making enough money that you can afford to!

    No money is never a good thing and having some money is always better than having no money! Maybe it’s not your dream job you have now, but you can aspire to do better things every day. 

    You can write a chapter in the book you’ve always wanted to write.

    You can take a class on your free time.

    You can go to one of the many mixers in your area, and meet more people who are interested in what you are.

    You make your own, unique list that you can do while you’re aspiring to those greater, meaningful things.

    You can learn you can grow you can read you can be around people who are doing what you want to do, and you can learn from them. They might even allow you to work doing what you love for a day and you can see if you really like it.

     I hope you enjoy Evan Carmichael’s newest video; I sure have.

     It takes about an hour to listen to it.

    Help me walk my talk.

    Make my life meaningful by my actions. Give me the faith to walk hand-in-hand with a spirit, and to prove the presence of God by my Deeds. I can do anything I set my mind and heart to do, for I do not walk alone. Thank you, God, for being my steadfast and stalwart companion. With you by my side, nothing is impossible, and the universe opens its Treasures to me.

    “Handle With Prayer”

    CNN: Doctors want President Trump’s head examined (Rebuttal & Pictorial from Paulette Motzko)

    Doctors want President Trump’s head examined.

    Now you’re talking! 

    Finally they hit the spot that’s the worst off-Trump’s racist, egocentric, arrogant, apathetic mind.

    I know earlier and a new story Trump’s doctor and deemed him healthy, but then again that’s Trump’s doctor which doesn’t  count for anything. 

    Trump pays people to say and do just about everything so nothing that has his name on it you should believe.

    After the recent horrible things that hit the news about him and him referring to other countries in a way that I will not even say on the site, that should be enough to impeach him, and I hope it is.

    After all, in a world that’s constantly changing we need to change our rules of impeachment for Trump is concerned because if you shown time and time again that you are not a good person, that you have no respect for women, that you have said racial things about every country in the world, and made the United States look like a laughing stock –you shouldn‘t be president and I don‘t care what kind of rules there areWe need to make some new rules especially for Trump.

    Typically with every other President, it has been implied that the acting President be intelligent. 

    Non-racist should be in the job description for president too. If it’s not in the job description in what we require as the leader of the United States; we should certainly put it in there!

    Without integrity and compassion you have a empty shell of a human being.

      Trump has deficits on all counts that make someone who is not well adjusted and he has no knowledge of how to mediate and negotiate with other countries peacefully

    I hope that the psychological evaluation includes extensive personality testing too.

    I also hope the deliberations United States regarding all of the refugees and people who have lived here over 30 years, who now because of Trump, and his lack of decision making are being threatened with going back to Mexico! That’s just completely unfair. Anybody who has lived here for 30 years has adopted the United States as their native country. 

    It’s against their civil rights to make them leave as far as I’m concerned.

    For all who are in the “gray abyss” of not knowing whether you’re going to be deported, I pray that you’ll be able to stay with your family and live the life you’re used to.

    Most Americans are not like Trump, thank God.

     I hope that Congress and Trump at all involved make their minds up about all of those government jobs that are left dangling right now. It is not fair because it’s stressing out all the poor people that have those jobs!

     I hope that everyone in congress wakes up out of her stupor and just makes a decision that is good for everyone. 

    Make a decision that looks out for the best interest of all people. (We don’t want thousands of government workers laid off resulting in pandemonium, do we?) 

    Our cities without no police officers protecting them either, let alone the jobs lost and families with no bread earner, risking home loss. 

    How come the people who serve on such high seats fail to see and allow themselves to see the chain reaction of events that would happen if they chosen wisely?

    Do people wear rose-colored glasses once they set foot in office? 

    Do they lose all sense of reality and what is good for everyone?

    Horrible things would happen as a result of a government shutdown. 

    I dont think Trump is bright enough to realize it.

    Hopefully the decision-makers  will put people out of their misery and not do a government shutdown.

    I pray they come to an agreement today.

     Say a prayer for  The United States of America. 

    Above image written and created by Paulette L. Motzko.

     The USA needs thousands of prayers now.

    I pray they won’t risk letting dozens of government jobs go just because they want their “say”. It wouldn’t looking out for the greater good of all, which is what you’re supposed to do when you’re in public health office. What we have now is one ego batting heads with another ego and no one’s looking for the greater good of anyone!

    History is made every day when we prove the “unprovable.”

    We show that what people thought we could do is nothing like what we were capable of. 

    Break the stereotypes and show that anyone, with intelligence and courage can accomplish anything they put their mind to do.  

    We all are created equal regardless of the color of our skin.

    Guess I had more to say here….

    I can’t believe it’s 2018 already! Can you?

     I remember when I was a kid at 4 years old wearing my little Pebble Pebbles boots The Flintstones written all over them,  watching Looney Tunes cartoons (before they started editing them saying they were too violent), and Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck would talk about 2018 and it sounded so futuristic! Well I guess we are living in the future now and time has a way of passing in this fleeting thing called life.

    I hope you all pack a lot of living in this year doing things maybe you‘ve never tried, but always wanted to. That way, 10 years from now you look back and say what an awesome year 2018 was, when you relive those phenomenal memories you‘ll be making now.
