Hofstadter’s Law: It always takes longer than you expect, even when you take into account Hofstadter’s Law.

Douglas Hofstadter

“Though this be madness, yet there is method in ‘t.”

Method is the careful, systematic way by witch something intelligent is done. Madness is the strange, meaningless action of a crazy person. There is “method to one’s madness” when what looks like strange and meaningless action (madness) is actually the< result of a carefully reasoned plan (method).

One current example:
I feel like I have been getting pushed stronlgy by life to go forward since March 2009. Slowly but obviously, life was pushing me to build on my dreams.

I kind of started really listening by September, just around the time of my 28th birthday. My archetypes switched. By the end of October I was so into getting to the next level that I joined a one month daily entrepreneurs meeting / business plan building exercise. Sharing with like minded people on the real word was a highly rewarding experience, so I created an entrepreneurs club inviting a few of the brightest guys and gals from that group.

I had and incredible spur of new bigger wiser business ideas evolving from my old ones and I chose the best ones for development.

I even finally worked out critical aspects of my character that had stuff to be done if I was to have any chance at building my dreams. I did it!

Somehow, by the end of December the quietness of the end of the year was getting things off to “normal”… the energy was waving out, and I strongly asked the universe everyone and their cats for inspiration.

A miracle happened. I’m not even sure what really happened, maybe I was the victim of a 28 of Decembers innocent day joke that got 3 weeks long; maybe I got delusional for a few weeks; maybe the universe played the four Aces plus the joker on me; maybe it was something real and very special (I tend to think that but I’m being realistic here).

Whatever it was, it turned my gears to full hipper mentally aroused mode again and pushed me just the little bit extra I needed to enter into launching mode (I was “almost there”).

Launching mode is amazing, I been here a few times before and I love it because its self sustaining. I don’t need any outside stimuli to keep going forward nor any negative input distract me from my goals.

I’m here now (fully into launch mode, in The Zone), and I don’t plan on taking the exit anytime around the next five years. I’m gonna master this thing.

love & thanks

Here are a few quotes about the method to my madness, which I discovered almost by accident, and have been following and perfecting since age 16:

‘I want to stay as close to the edge as I can without going over. Out on the edge you can see all kinds of things you can’t see from the center.’

Kurt Vonnegut 1922 – 2007


Talent hits a target no one else can hit;
Genius hits a target no one else can see.

Arthur Schopenhauer


“Passion is the element in which we live; without it, we hardly vegetate.”

Lord Byron
