"Just Do It" - 06/11/14

I worked in Tucson, AZ for 8 years.  About 3 years into my time there, I ordered Chinese takeout for dinner, opened a fortune cookie and read the fortune.  This is what it said:

"The simplest answer is to act."

I taped that fortune to my desk monitor.  Something about it spoke to me.  That's saying something because I usually couldn't care less about those silly things.

The fortune stayed taped to my monitor until I packed up my desk to move here.  I  kept the fortune but haven't been able to find it since we moved and I think about it often.

Sometimes, when you're in a tough spot; when you're not sure what to do; when you're over-thinking it;  the best thing to do is, "just do it."

I'm not talking about jumping into something with reckless abandon.  I'm saying that if you just DO what you've been dreaming, just DO what you've been wanting, it might be the best thing you ever DID. 

I started thinking about this more after interviewing Shelene Bryan, author of  "Love, Skip, Jump."  Her personal journey along the same lines amazes me.  If you're looking for an inspirational read this summer, check it out.

GOP 2016-PAUL-MARIJUANA

DENVER (AP) -- Republican presidential candidate Rand Paul is looking for some green from the pot biz. The Kentucky senator sought donations from the newly legal weed business yesterday. He met with donors at the Cannabis Business Summit in Denver. Tickets for the fundraiser started at $2,700. In public remarks after the event, Paul didn't mention marijuana and didn't take questions from most reporters.

NBA JERSEYS

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- It's LeBron James versus Stephen Curry, again. And Curry is the winner, again. Curry's jersey is the top seller for the first time. The Golden State Warriors star and league MVP is the best-seller, according to the NBAStore.com. James held the top spot at the end of the regular season, but drops to second. The latest figures cap Curry's incredible year. He led the Warriors to a franchise-record 67 wins -- plus 16 more in the playoffs -- and their first championship in 40 years. His Warriors beat James and the Cleveland Cavaliers in six games for the NBA crown.

SNAKE-MUSEUM TOILET

ARCHER CITY, Texas (AP) -- There was an unwelcome visitor at a North Texas museum -- a nearly 6-foot-long snake. Mary Ann Levy was opening the museum when she spotted the rat snake curled up in a toilet. Sheriff's Deputy Tina Robertson was supervising an inmate crew mowing at the nearby courthouse. A trusty happened to know about snakes and he helped capture the creature. Levy can laugh about it now. She tells the Wichita Falls Times Record News at least the snake now doesn't have a pot to "hiss in."

NATIONAL MALL-FOOD SERVICE

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Visitors to the National Mall in Washington have some new food options. The National Park Service says concession provider Guest Services is expanding choices at six kiosks. The new options include gluten-free and vegetarian choices. One food station at the Lincoln Memorial will have a specialty burger each month, along with black bean and Boca burgers. At the National Museum of Natural History, a kiosk will have specialty barbecue items. For desert, the food stations will offer seasonal fresh fruit, pies and cheesecakes.
