One of My Favorite Quotes...

“The Master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his education and his recreation, his love and his religion. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence in whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him he is always doing both.”

Crazy Yo-Yo Skills!

Check this kid out! He's got some crazy yo-yo skills! Makes you think, how many times he's hit his head to get that good! Check the background as well. It looks like a pretty good collection too. It brings back some child hood memories, but just not being that good.

Toronto Raptors Unveil Third Jersey



On Thursday, September 25th of 2008, the Toronto Raptors released the team’s new alternate road uniform for the upcoming 2008-09 season. They even came up with a new slogan, “Black is the New Red”. With that in mind, you can never go wrong with black. According to the team, the new uniform will be worn a minimum of six times on the road. I have got to say that it looks pretty damn cool and look forward to seeing them play in them. RaptorsHQ has more info on this.

Four Translucent Business Cards

Found some business cards on Flickr...

There’s something about translucent business cards that intrigues me. Maybe it’s the design limitations that one has to look into when designing one. Maybe it’s the challenge of creating a simple design that works not only from the front, but needs to also work from the back. Whatever it is, it grabs my attention and I’m sure it’ll grab whoever receives them for the first time as well.

It’s not everyday you see business cards like these. I think it has a lot to do with business cards being printed for cheap these days. For the amount you would pay for a full tank of gas would get you well over a thousand cards. So, it’s kind of refreshing to see these cards, even though it isn’t new.

Bruce Lee’s Top 7 Fundamentals for Getting Your Life in Shape

Here are Bruce Lee’s top 7 fundamentals for getting your life in shape. I came across this list a few times in a course of a few months. I feel that this is something that needs to be shared with others. The list is both immensely inquisitive and engagingly positive. It’s truly an inspiration to say the least.

I have listed only the quotes, since it’s a great way to open the mind. I didn’t want to add the commentary that came along with it after each quote. I feel it’s more impacting to discover the quotes true meaning yourself, instead of someone spoon feeding their thoughts on it.

To view original post with all the added commentary from The Positivity Blog...

Bruce Lee’s Top 7 Fundamentals for Getting Your Life in Shape

1. What are you really thinking about today?
“As you think, so shall you become.”

2. Simplify.
“It’s not the daily increase but daily decrease. Hack away at the unessential.”
“If you spend too much time thinking about a thing, you’ll never get it done.”

3. Learn about yourself in interactions.
“To know oneself is to study oneself in action with another person.”

4. Do not divide.
“Take no thought of who is right or wrong or who is better than. Be not for or against.”

5. Avoid a dependency on validation from others.
“I’m not in this world to live up to your expectations and you’re not in this world to live up to mine.”
“Showing off is the fool’s idea of glory.”


6. Be proactive.
“To hell with circumstances; I create opportunities.”

7. Be you.
“Always be yourself, express yourself, have faith in yourself, do not go out and look for a successful personality and duplicate it.”

POTD: San Diego Chargers Fans! It's not over!

The “Photo of the Day” shows the San Diego Chargers navy blue towel. I don’t know what it is about rally towels, but I like them. Only two weeks into the 2008 regular football season and I’m pulling my hair. It’s been a tough two weeks, but we got to remember. It’s not how you start, its how you finish. We were in the same position early last season, with a 1-3 record, but made it to the AFC Championship Game. Have faith, GO BOLTS!!!

CommunicatingIdeas.com now on Squidoo

I have just created an account for the blog, CommunicatingIdeas.com, on Squidoo, another social networking site. It’s just one of those things one needs to do in order to make somewhat of an impact in the internet world. Not a large one, but it does help a bit. At least that's what I say to myself. Besides, it’s free and another way to waste my time when I have nothing else to do.

One of the best ways to gain more traffic to your site is to join sites like these. I’m no traffic master, but again, it’s just another social networking site that helps bring exposure in this vast space we call the internet. It only makes sense to do it.

Now, I’m not sure exactly how I’m going to use Squidoo. When I first created the account, I wasn’t exactly sure what it is and what it does. I knew of this site for awhile and that was when it was still in beta form. But I knew it only by name, not function... So far, so good.

Long live cross-promoting!

Check it out!
