Everyday Wisdom: “Life is Hard” EP.21

Rugby

Life is indeed hard, and as soon as you get that, it becomes dramatically more manageable.

From the “Terrible Twos” through the end of life, life is hard. And hard for different people in different ways. All 7 billion of us are going through our own different versions of “hard.” Behind every face there is a story. Each of the 7 billion stories are different. We often think that we are unique in the depth of our struggles because we compare the turmoil inside of us with the relative calm on the exteriors of those around us. Ironically, the people around us are doing the same thing in reverse.

This is not a podcast about how life is unfair. If is a podcast about how the rules for success in our lives, personal, financial and political, are 1. The same for everyone and in all three areas, and 2. Simple to understand. Simple, yes, but very hard (there’s that word again). Hard, yes, but jolly well worth it.

Life os hard–for everyone–in different ways, and hard is not an excuse or a reason in and of itself to ask for/demand taxpayer assistance. Remember, it is hard for everyone–including the taxpayers.

Hey, the NFL draft was last night. Do you care? Did it go well for your team?

Please do contact me. Respond in my Revolution 2.0 blog, email me at will@revolution2-0.org. And I’m easy to find on iTunes, Google Play and the usual Bat Channels, including Twitter and Facebook.

It is time for our usual parting thought. For us at Revolution 2.0, it is not simply change your thinking, change your life. It is change your thinking, change your actions, change the  world. And if you can do it in love and enjoy the people around you at the same time, all the better. Remember: Knowledge by itself is the booby prize.

I am your host, Will Luden, former long-time high-tech CEO and Board Chair. I had no idea when I started this podcast that it would become the highest calling of my professional career. Lincoln famously hoped that a government, “…of the people, by the people and for the people…”, would not perish from this earth. My hope, the reason for Revolution 2.0 ”A Booster Shot”, is that a government based on common goals, achieved by applying non agenda-based reasoning to core facts, will allow us to continue to build on our mutual inheritance of a legacy of dedication to seemingly impossible ideals, a legacy that also includes a history of achieving them.

    Re the draft, I think the Broncos did well in round 1, but they need to address the offensive line if they want whoever becomes their No 1 quarterback to finish the season in one piece.

    You need to do a blog on your “I flunked out of college” story… very good story to share, especially since you ultimately ended up with a Harvard MBA.
