To-Do List

July 10, 2009

Returning from any holiday makes me step back and evaluate my life. Viewing the visual splendors of Flaming Gorge has caused my soul to transcend to a higher realm. Rather than allowing my uplifted soul to descend back to its normal everyday state, I want to raise the quality of my life to the level of my soaring soul.
The following list offers the details of my hopes, dreams, and aspirations:

  • Achieve excellence in my employment. I shall inspire those I work with to reach for the brass ring. I shall rise to the top of the company ladder, but without stepping on others. I shall take very brief lunches, except for when they are power lunches, in which case they are not merely lunches at all, but important work. Also, I will propose that we move toward synchronized development and shall bone up on design architecture.
  • Begin each day with a sun worshipping ceremony. Make sure all the kids are up for this. Kim too. I’ve got costumes on order, easily obtained over the Internet. Technology is wonderful!
  • Finish reading Stanley Elkin’s The MacGuffin. I’m still on page 73. Frankly, I’m not convinced that The MacGuffin was an appropriate title for the book, and have quite a few other suggestions as well. I am noting these suggestions in the margins and will, once I am finished with the book, return it to the publisher along with a letter that they should implement my edits ASAP.
  • Deepen my relationships with Ian, Holden, and Maddy by having weekly one on one personal inventories. I am especially concerned about the fact that two of the three children (I will not here reveal which two) have locked aluminum boxes, large enough to hold explosives, among other things.
  • Begin with the end in mind. Live each day with the clear understanding that within 50 years, my mortal coil shall be cast into the ground and rotting. Also, I will never leave quad 1. No matter what. If someone comes to me with a quad 2 problem, I will either convert it to a quad 1 problem or simply tell that person that they are going to have to resolve the issue on their own.
  • Enrich my inner core through the medium of tantric activities. I’m working on that right this very second, actually.
  • Attain a higher level of respect within church circles. I will do this by being more generous with fast offerings and wearing a bow tie to church meetings.
  • Change my blog password.

    Why would you want to change your blog password? Your blog is AWESOME just as it is!

    Given the comments along the lines of “best post ever” this week, I think I’d leave the password alone.

    Brad, give dug his blog back.

    Why did I look up tantric? Blogging while tantric-ing? Were you also eating?

    Put down the 7 habits, as if you could be improved. (Will an appeal to dug’s vanity end this new dug?)

    I like it. I could care less about the MacGuffin thing and I would definitely worry about the aluminum boxes but overall great list. And, I can’t believe you didn’t do a link for Tantric cause I have no idea what that is and I used the time to look it up writing you a reply. Take luck. I like Eber’s suggestion for a new password. Just don’t change the blog, much. Oh, and what the heck do you mean by Quad 1 and Quad 2. I only know the quad at BYU, if it still exists and they haven’t built on it.
