15 Principles to Creating What You Want

(from http://www.businesspipeline.com/pressreleases/article_5.htm)

1. Never compromise your integrity for anyone or anything.

2. Don't try to be all things to all people. Learn to say no politely and pleasantly , but immediately and firmly.

3. Never wait for something to happen; make it happen! Do it now!

4. Do not be overwhelmed by the tasks before you. Don't try to do everything; just do something.

5. To accomplish your objective, first begin. Secondly, concentrate exclusively on the project at hand. Third, don't stop.

6. Let circumstances dictate your priorities; let priorities determine your actions.

7. Focus your efforts on the root of the problem. Don't expend energy on peripheral issues that are not crucial to producing results.

8. For maximum effectiveness, do only what you do best and let others do the rest.

9. Concentrate on long-term, permanent solutions rather than stop gap measures.

10. Don't waste time telling people what you are doing or what you are going to do. Results have a way of informing the world.

11. Don't make promises you can't keep; once made, keep them.

12. Don't be tempted to take the easy way out. Have the self-discipline to do the right thing rather than the instinctive thing.

13. Don't become lax; play every point as though it were matching point.

14. You are not through until you have dotted all the I's and crossed all the T's.

15. Avoid premature celebrations. You are not through till the check has cleared the bank.

Amanda Baggs is autistic, she is also a noteworthy voice in the autism rights movements.

I first discovered her clip on YouTube, first portraying a severally disabled autistic woman, followed by a most eloquent monologue thanks to text to speech technology.

She also keeps a blog where she describes her life, as well as her thoughts on disability and autism in particular.

Her more blunt retort and counter to stigmatization and institutionalization can be found here.

As far as I can tell, this is a very much a real person making one hell of an effort to reach out as well as set things straight.

Recommended reading to anyone touch by or simply interested by the Autism spectrum.

What it's not about

  • Never hitting a brick wall, or being hit with a brick on the head
  • nor is it about never being discouraged
  • it's about that tiny voice in your head that knows that you've something big coming and the tingly feeling in your belly that follows.

touching home

walking through the forest
for hours
without all the background noise,
brings it back into perspective.

and something about being passionate about your work, not your employer.

Love and light.
