TED Tuesday's - Derek Sivers

Hello everyone and welcome back to the ever so exciting TED Tuesday's. Derek Sivers has a way of educating and inspiring in short bursts. The topic for this lecture details how it might be better to keep your goals a secret initially. I couldn't help but fall into level of self-realization that this applies to me heavily. Often times, at least that I can recount, I tend to not follow through with some of my eccentric ideas that have been stated out loud.

The final investigation for September creeps up in a few days and I have a couple of goals in mind... hopefully, you guys have some goals for the week as well...but don't tell me; not a word now.

The Sunday Fall Collection

A couple of weeks ago, Derek emailed me. He wants to keep in touch with people to let them know what he has been doing since leaving CDBaby.

I cannot wait for the new season of PARANORMAL STATE comes out. I did pick up Ryan's book. I am starting to read it, now.

I am so glad to see your photographs. I cannot wait to see more. Serg, are you going to be doing more critiquing on the Photo Critic?

Talk soon..

Is it just me, or does anyone else see a small hand in the leaf on the left side of the 1st photo? Hmmmmmm...

As for the goals topic. I'd have to say that I feel it depends on the goal and where one is at. If telling everyone about your goal makes you terrified that you'll never succeed (if that's one of your 'mind tapes'), then maybe not a good idea. But if you've got a great idea, sometimes the more people that know, the more support you can get from loved ones. Or from your community, if the idea encompasses a larger scale, such as wanting to create a support group or such. Just some thoughts.
