Your the Best v. You’re the Best

I received a note from Derek G. Graham OLS OLIP alerting me that I had goofed on the titling of my previous blog post – linked [HERE]. In this post I’m going to own that error more fully than I think even I expect by just letting my fingers serve as the extension of my stream … Continue Reading

Knowing Your the Best … Even Before You Are!

Wow! In light of everything that I have been studying about Napoleon Hill and some other protegees of his this past month or so, I find the above picture and comments extremely interesting. Perhaps the biggest idea is that one needs to be able to really believe themselves to have already achieved that which it … Continue Reading

Justice Smiles Website Development – Part II

I had a fantastic day learning Tableau Software as the first customer of Ben Johnson’s Data Literacy. So much, that I have to confess I need to sleep on it before returning to much of the data that I had organized with the collaborative aid of my graphic designer using brute force. It’s clear to … Continue Reading

Justice Smiles Website Development – Part I

Though my immediate desire is to get in to Tableau Software so I can learn and earn through an exchange of time and wisdom for value, my approaches haven’t generated my desired outcome … yet! So, I find myself in the gap between what I thought I was going to be walking away from and … Continue Reading

Implicit Bias v. Scientific Method

Yesterday, I had an informational interview with a gentleman from Tableau Software. He mentioned how he believes it is so important that we follow the scientific method’s means of determining what you suspect to find – i.e. the hypothesis – and then test for the “null hypothesis.” In theory it helps people to overcome one … Continue Reading

A Gory Cave Allegory

A day or two ago when I was watching the live stream of Bob Proctor & Sandy Gallagher’s “The Art of Goal Creation,” I was directly reminded of Plato’s Allegory of the Cave. The basic idea is that prisoners are sitting looking at the back of a cave not only transfixed by that which is … Continue Reading

Our Neighborhood’s Wonderful Tarped House

It’s most a beauty … eh? Well, this house sits right next to the Magnolia dog park. This week it was again tarped. They did a great job of tying this turd down. Yeah, this double barraleed gabbled monstrosity had a blue tarp upon it which fluttered in the wind. Now, let me ask you this. … Continue Reading

A Quote by which to Live and to Die

All men dream; but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their mind waken the dday to find that it was vanity; but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible. This I did. – T.E. Lawrence … Continue Reading

Conquer Your Mountain Like Sir Edmund Hillary Did His!

Yesterday evening and all day today, I have been live-streaming “The Art of Goal Achieving” by the Proctor Gallagher Institute. So far, it’s been a spectacular presentation … and we are not even half of the way into it. It’s been extremely thought provoking for me. So, I wanted to share some thoughts and decided … Continue Reading

A Victorious Run on Jacob’s Ladder

Jacob’s ladder is a reference to a dream. According to Genesis 28:10-17 [NIV] … 10 Jacob left Beersheba and set out for Harran. 11 When he reached a certain place, he stopped for the night because the sun had set. Taking one of the stones there, he put it under his head and lay down to sleep.12 He had a dream in which he … Continue Reading

Persistence Is Only Appropriate After an Appropriate Choice

Yes, faith provides for persistence which is key. In fact, Calvin Coolidge might have an even greater perspective on persistence. He is noted for this quote: Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not: nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a … Continue Reading

States Westward to the Mississippi

So, coming full circle on this Original 13 of the United States, above is a more distinct idea of what each state claimed. As far as why then, though Britain was giving up. France provided the backstop at the Mississippi River. But for France’s involvement as the “higher authority,,” as can also be demonstrated by … Continue Reading

Treaty of Paris

The American delegation to the Treaty of Paris, signed in 1783, were from left to right are: John Jay, John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, Henry Laurens, and William Temple Franklin. Above is American Commissioners of the Preliminary Peace Agreement with Great Britain by Benjamin West. It’s not finished though. Why? Well, it is reported that the British delegation refused to pose, and the painting … Continue Reading

Pre-Louisiana Purchase Westward Expansion Query

Above is a map which depicts the Louisiana Purchase which was signed on April 30, 1803. There is plenty of treatment on this which I decide not to relate in this post. What is important is to ask what happened in the interim between the Royal Proclamation of 1763 and this purchase. Is there an … Continue Reading

History of America’s Original 13 – Royal Proclamation of 1763

Above is a general map of the original 13 Colonies before 1763. Notice how boundary lines extended to the Mississippi. There were some that didn’t. Those which had fixed western boundaries were Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New Jersey, and Delaware. So what about all the others? Maine, New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, South … Continue Reading

Is Justice Smiles Flowing toward Good Neighborly Relations?

The principal of the platform which hosts this site – Lexblog’s Kevin O’Keefe – in reviewing Bill Gates’ End of 2018 Gates Notes post – pulled out a line for examination whereby Gates indicated that the questions that he is asking now at 63 are not the same as they were in his 20s. Specifically, the lifted … Continue Reading

Past Master Mind Masters

Imagine how much influence the four men above influenced the world. “The Four Vagabonds” from left to right are Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, John Burroughs, and Harvey Firestone. Ford remains not only synonyms with cars, but also with techniques of industrial production. Firestone was able to mass produce the wheels that went on all those … Continue Reading

Happy New Year 2019!

Hey There! Big opportunity. We have exactly 365 days to get 20/20 perspective. Maybe you are like me and wish you had it yesterday. But as the Fleetmac suggest: “Yesterday’s gone, [so] … don’t stop thinking about tomorrow.” Notwithstanding that upbeat tune which Bill Clinton and company adopted as their campaign anthem in 1992, there … Continue Reading

Boldly Plant Your Two Cents!

It’s the last day of 2018! Has it been as great a year for you as it has been for me? The year did not start out stellar. I had a lawsuit which was the absolute death, another locked in mortal combat, and of course all of this was happening while I still was undergoing … Continue Reading

Reinvention – The Art of Putting on New Clothes

I am not the most faithful person when it comes to going to church. Nevertheless, my attempt is to get in a full rotation of three differing morning services … each Sunday! OMG, that’s crazy thinks not only you but my family as well. Why do I do this? Well, I found my work so … Continue Reading

Is ESP for Real?

Napoleon Hill’s book Think and Grow Rich gives some treatment to ESP or as he calls it Telepathy. Perhaps there is a distinction between these phenomenon that I am not aware. As someone who has been quite literally “grounded” in the area of boundary dispute law for the last decade, like most I tend to scoff … Continue Reading

What Does Edison Have to Do with It?

My blog posts in large part have been focused this month on Napoleon Hill’s Think and Grow Rich. This book’s introductory chapter is styled: “The Man Who “Thought” His Way into Partnership with Thomas A. Edison.” Well, this morning’s news about the Con Edison explosion in Queens, NY had me thinking that I ought to give … Continue Reading

Can I Get You Some Water?

Yesterday, I recorded one of the last stipulated judgments of my career as a boundary dispute attorney. The woman seated at the recorder’s desk was pleasant enough. When she asked what it was that I was recording, I told her that it was likely the last judgment I would ever record from an adverse possession … Continue Reading
