Seasoned Nuts Quotable


“This war did not spring up on our land, this war was brought upon us by the children of the Great Father who came to take our land without a price, and who, in our land, do a great many evil things… This war has come from robbery – from the stealing of our land.” – Spotted Tail

A QUOTE TO THINK ABOUT

“Most people don’t grow up. It’s too damn difficult. What happens is most people get older. That’s the truth of it. They honor their credit cards, they find parking spaces, they marry, they have the nerve to have children, but they don’t grow up. Not really. They get older. But to grow up costs the earth, the earth. It means you take responsibility for the time you take up, for the space you occupy. It’s serious business. And you find out what it costs us to love and to lose, to dare and to fail. And maybe even more, to succeed.”

Identity…. by Seth Godin


* Identity is often used against us [ https://feeds.feedblitz.com/~/648954836/0/sethsblog/posts~Identity-is-often-used-against-us/ ]

Identity feels permanent, powerful, emotional and fragile.

Identity has been used to unite college alumni (“we are!”), political factions and groups of all kinds.

Criticism is not in short supply, especially lately, and criticism aimed at us, at our core self, is particularly hurtful.

“I don’t like you,” is hard to wrestle with.

That’s why ad hominem attacks on appearance and other permanent attributes we all have are so difficult to live with.

But “you” is not the car you drive, the kind of wine you drink or how you feel about a certain issue in our society. Those are choices. Those are tastes. Those can be changed.

When I say I don’t like your idea, I’m not saying that I don’t like you. And if we’ve been persuaded by marketers and politicians that everything we do and say is our identity, then it gets very difficult to learn, to accept useful feedback and to change.

Evolving our choices and our tastes is part of being human. Establishing your identity as someone who is not static, open to change and eager for better makes it far easier to engage in a world where some would prefer us to do precisely the opposite.

Our decisions about transportation determine much more than where roads or bridges or tunnels or rail lines will be built.

3-2-1: Pushing yourself, listening, and a simple rule for life and work

read onJAMESCLEAR.COM | APRIL 8, 2021

Happy 3-2-1 Thursday,

Here are 3 ideas, 2 quotes, and 1 question to consider this week…

3 Ideas From Me

“A simple rule for life and work:

Don’t rush, but don’t wait.

Thoughtful action.”

5) Repeat.”

(Share this on Twitter)​

2 Quotes From Others

I.

Artificial intelligence researcher Eliezer Yudkowsky on pushing yourself:

“If you never fail, you’re only trying things that are too easy and playing far below your level… If you can’t remember any time in the last six months when you failed, you aren’t trying to do difficult enough things.”

Source: Inadequate Equilibria (Chapter 7)


​II.

Documentary filmmaker Valarie Kaur on listening:

“Deep listening is an act of surrender. We risk being changed by what we hear.

When I really want to hear another person’s story, I try to leave my preconceptions at the door and draw close to their telling. I am always partially listening to the thoughts in my own head when others are speaking, so I consciously quiet my thoughts and begin to listen with my senses.

Empathy is cognitive and emotional—to inhabit another person’s view of the world is to feel the world with them. But I also know that it’s okay if I don’t feel very much for them at all. I just need to feel safe enough to stay curious.

The most critical part of listening is asking what is at stake for the other person. I try to understand what matters to them, not what I think matters. Sometimes I start to lose myself in their story. As soon as I notice feeling unmoored, I try to pull myself back into my body, like returning home. As Hannah Arendt says, ‘One trains one’s imagination to go visiting.’ When the story is done, we must return to our skin, our own worldview, and notice how we have been changed by our visit.”

Today’s Inspirational Quote:

“It is hard to let old beliefs go. They are familiar. We are comfortable with them and have spent years building systems and developing habits that depend on them. Like a man who has worn eyeglasses so long that he forgets he has them on, we forget that the world looks to us the way it does because we have become used to seeing it that way through a particular set of lenses. Today, however, we need new lenses. And we need to throw the old ones away.”

— Kenichi Ohmae

How Do You Know Someone Will Do a Great Job?

The next time you are working on a project, ask yourself, “What would happen to my level of commitment, if I knew that I was only going to be paid if I achieved results?”

Marshall GoldsmithApr 8

As an executive coach, I have a unique compensation system – I only get paid if my clients get better. “Better” means my clients achieve positive, measurable change in behavior, not as judged by themselves but by their key stakeholders. This process usually takes about 18 months and involves an average of 16 stakeholders.

My coaching approach has been described in several major publications, such as Forbes and The New Yorker. I have been asked many times where I came up with this “pay only for results” idea. The answer is from Dennis Mudd, who was my boss 43 years ago.

Growing up in Valley Station, Ky., my family was poor. Dad operated a small, two-pump gas station. The roof on our home was very old and starting to leak badly. We had no choice but to get a new roof, although this would be a painful expenditure for us. Dad hired Dennis Mudd to put on the roof. In order for us to save some money, I worked as his assistant.

Putting on a roof in the middle of the summer in Kentucky is incredibly hard work. I never have done another job (before or since) that required this degree of physical exertion. I was amazed at the care Mr. Mudd put into the laying of the shingles. He was patient with me as I made mistakes and helped me learn how to do the job right. After a while, my attitude toward this project changed from “grudging acceptance” to “pride in a job well-done.” In spite of the heat and pain,

I looked forward to working with Mr. Mudd every day.
When the project was finally over, I thought the roof looked great. When Mr. Mudd presented my Dad with the invoice for our work, he said quietly, “Bill, please take your time and inspect our work. If you feel that this roof meets your standards, pay us. If not, there is no charge for our work.” It was obvious, he was very serious in his request.

Dad carefully looked at the roof, thanked both of us for a job well-done and then paid Mr. Mudd, who then paid me for my help.

I will never forget watching Mr. Mudd when he asked Dad to only pay for results. He wasn’t kidding – he was dead serious, and my respect for Mr. Mudd skyrocketed. I was only 14 years old, but I will never forget this event. I knew the Mudd family. They didn’t have any more money that we did. I thought, “Mr. Mudd may be poor, but he is not cheap. This guy has class. When I grow up, I want to be like Dennis Mudd.”

Although I have received many honors for my work, I doubt I will ever match the dedication to quality and the integrity Mr. Mudd showed. In the past 29 years, I have not gotten paid on a few assignments and have never asked for money I felt was undeserved. Financially, how much has this hurt me? At the time, it caused me some pain and embarrassment, but I knew I was still going to have a very prosperous life.

How much would not getting paid have hurt Mr. Mudd? A lot. Not paying him would have meant that his family would not be eating very well for the next couple of months. This sacrifice didn’t matter, though. His pride and integrity were more important than money.

Mr. Mudd never gave any pep talks about quality or values. He didn’t use any fancy buzzwords such as “empowerment” or “customer delight.” He didn’t have to – his actions communicated his values better than any buzzwords he might have used.

We can all learn a lot from this man. The next time you are working on a project, ask yourself, “What would happen to my level of commitment, if I knew that I was only going to be paid if I achieved results?”

How would your behavior change?

What if someone said this to you, “I don’t want you to pay me unless you are 100% satisfied with the results.”

Wouldn’t you know that person was going to do the best job they could for you?
Mr. Mudd taught me a lesson I will try to live up to for the rest of my life. What is important is not how much he impressed me. What is much more important is that he could look with pride at the person he saw in the mirror every day.

Thank you for reading! I hope this is helpful to you and those around you.

Life is good. Marshall.

The Bonniest Scottish Words to Add to Your Vocabulary

Thursday, March 252 min read

Facebook Icon
Twitter Icon
Email Icon

If you’ve ever met someone with a true Scottish brogue, you’ll know that it’s often quite difficult to understand him or her even if you’re a native English speaker. Perhaps part of the problem stems from the fact that the Scots pepper quite a few uniquely Scottish words into conversation. Try a few of these Scottish terms in your best burr.

Couthy

Remember this word (pronounced KOO-thee) for its relation to the words “cozy” and “couch.” It only makes sense that couthy means a comfortable place or a warm, friendly person.

Howff

Travelers might potentially end up at a couthy howff since howff (howf) is a beloved meeting place like a neighborhood pub.

Blether

While at the pub, folks might have a blether (BLEH-thuh) with a friend. Blether means to gossip and catch up — typically over a cup of tea or a pint of beer.

Skelf

A splinter or sliver of wood is referred to as a skelf. A “shelf” could also be called a skelf, according to a Scotsman.

Fankle

Get tangled up in something, and you’ve fankled it. It can also be used as a noun. For example, getting involved in a debate over what a Scotsman said would be a fankle.

Glaikit

glaikit (GLAY-kit) is a Scottish insult. To call someone a glaikit, means they’re stupid, foolish, or thoughtless. Use this word sparingly!

Scran

To enjoy hearty plate of haggis means you’re eating scran — a dish of sustenance in Scotland.

Keek

A number of Scottish words are cousins to English words. Keek rhymes with “peek” and has a similar meaning. It means to stealthily peep at someone or something.

Gallus

Gallus is similar to the word “gallant” and both words refer to something bold and daring.

Dreich

Scotland (and the United Kingdom in general) is particularly known for its gloomy, overcast weather. When the sky is grey, call it dreich (dreekh).

Kenspeckle

Good luck flying under the radar in Scotland. A particularly recognizable or conspicuous person is known as kenspeckle.

Braw

This word is pronounced like “brah” and refers to anything exceptionally nice. For example, visit your bro’s new apartment and say the view is braw. If something’s beyond great, it’s “pure barry.”

Guddle

Rhyming with “puddle,” this verb refers to fishing with your hands under stones or along the banks of a stream.

Peely-Wally

Telling someone he or she doesn’t look well generally isn’t a nice comment to make. At least if you say he or she looks a little peely-wally, it softens the blow.

Boggin

Remember the boggart from “Harry Potter”? A bog is a type of a swamp, so use this word to describe anything filthy or disgusting.

Radge

Combine crazy, rage, rambunctious, and even unfair and you’ve got radge, which can be applied to both a person or a situation.

Haud Yer Wheesht

Mamas will chide their children with this admonishment that essentially means “be quiet.”

17 Powerfully Inspiring Quotes From Ruth Bader Ginsburg | Inc.com


Getty Images

Editor’s note: This piece was first published in January 12, 2019. It was updated on September 21, 2020, after Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg became just the second female U.S. Supreme Court justice when she took the oath of office on August 10, 1993. She faced workplace discrimination in the 1960s despite graduating first in her class at Columbia Law School in 1959. Ginsburg was a longtime, forceful advocate of women’s rights and gender equality, and she earned the deep and abiding respect of her colleagues on the Court along with the American public. She died at the age of 87 on Friday, September 18, 2020.

For years, she shrugged off suggestions that she retire as she fought against a variety of illnesses and injuries, including colon cancer, pancreatic cancer, fracturing three ribs after a fall in her office, and surgery to remove cancerous growths in her left lung. Despite these setbacks, Ruth Bader Ginsburg (RBG for short) rejected the idea of stepping down from her position–perhaps inspired by Justice John Paul Stevens, who didn’t retire until he was 90 years old.

Ginsburg is a powerful example of someone who lived her beliefs and wasn’t afraid to voice them. Here are 17 RBG quotes that will inspire your success in business and in life.

Truth is a Constant


Truth is a constant.

We exist as vibrations. Inspiration requires exploration.

Dogma is born in the gap where consciousness has been excluded.

Our conversations with other adventurers have led to an ennobling of pseudo-powerful consciousness. Reality has always been overflowing with warriors whose hearts are opened by freedom. We are in the midst of a magical blossoming of intuition that will align us with the quantum soup itself.

How should you navigate this sublime biosphere? The nexus is calling to you via atomic ionization. Can you hear it? Although you may not realize it, you are Vedic.

Eons from now, we travellers will dream like never before as we are guided by the cosmos. Parvati will give us access to mystical fulfillment. The uprising of grace is now happening worldwide.

Synchronicity is the driver of serenity.

Without rejuvenation, one cannot vibrate. You may be ruled by dogma without realizing it. Do not let it sabotage the deeper meaning of your journey. Where there is pain, potential cannot thrive.

Motivation


“According to this law [the law of Dharma], you have a unique talent and a unique way of expressing it. There is something that you can do better than anyone else in the whole world–and for every unique talent and unique expression of that talent, there are also unique needs. When these needs are matched with the creative expression of your talent, that is the spark that creates affluence. Expressing your talents to fulfill needs creates unlimited wealth and abundance.”
– Deepak Chopra

WORD OF THE DAY
BobtailBAHB-teylPart of speech: nounOrigin: Middle English, mid 16th century

I read this somewhere… don’t know where…


We heal, we self-actualize, we are reborn.

Nothing is impossible. Curiosity is a constant.

We exist as sub-atomic particles.

The paradigm shift of gratitude is now happening worldwide. Gaia will give us access to unified life-force. It is in deepening that we are reborn.

Only a traveller of the quantum cycle may release this rekindling of love. You may be ruled by materialism without realizing it. Do not let it eliminate the deeper meaning of your mission. Ego is born in the gap where manna has been excluded.

Yes, it is possible to eradicate the things that can sabotage us, but not without healing on our side. The complexity of the present time seems to demand a deepening of our hearts if we are going to survive. We can no longer afford to live with selfishness.

Grace requires exploration.

The galaxy is full of sub-atomic particles. To navigate the path is to become one with it. This life is nothing short of an awakening unifying of ancient power.

Oliver Cromwell.
In his Speech on 20-4-1653 , says addressing the British Parliament :
” Is there a single Virtue now remaining amongst you. ? Is there one Vice you do not possess. ?You have no more Religion than my Horse. Gold is your God, which of you have not bartered your conscience for bribes ?. Is there a man amongst you that has the least care for the good of the commonwealth. ?”
