Monday Mission 0224

PromoGuy's Monday Mission 3.08 take one. Action.

1. Has anyone ever told you that you needed to lose weight or change something about yourself physically? Who told you and what impact did it have on your life? Your perception of yourself?

Not really. If someone tells me I need to change something, then they don't really know me. The question then becomes, what are we doing here. I am me. That's all.

2. Do enjoy the snow and cold weather?

The weather is bitter cold here tonight. As long as I have warm clothes, socks, shoes, gloves and a coat, I can tolerate it.

3. Visualize the perfect winter evening. Are you alone or with someone? How does the evening start? How does it end, and everything in-between. Ahh, good question. But way too personal to be answered here.

4. I've noticed that people I work with, even no more than 6 feet away, would rather e-mail me a message than turn around and speak to me. Same goes for voice mail, I find I get more calls when I am away than when I am available to speak to someone. So many things that could be said face-to-face are now accomplished electronically. Do you think that technology has had allowed relationships and human interaction to become less personal? Is this a good thing? It's all in how you let technology pervade your life. Sometimes a written record, as in an e-mail or instant message is necessary and part of business. However, I prefer the old fashioned method of office communication: Yelling. Anything that makes human interaction less personal is definitely not a good thing.

5. One thing I've always wanted to learn is how to juggle. I'm pretty good with my hands, so I am sure I could do it. Yet, I've never made the commitment to sit down and learn how. Is there anything you've been meaning to learn, that you can learn, but haven't? (or maybe you have?) I don't know. I'm learning new shit everyday at my new job. It's overwhelming. Ask me another day.

6. On the other side of the coin, there is photography. As much as I'd like to, I will never be as great at it as others. And I am OK with that, still I wish I had the gifts that others have. What skills or talents have you wished that you possessed that you most likely never will? Are you content with that? My skills and talents are still being uncovered, even as we speak.

7. "AudioBlogs" are a twist on text blogs, where the blogger posts audio files instead of writing their entries. Not far behind the curve are VideoBlogs. While I've tinkered with Audio posts before, I think it excludes too many people and personally, I feel the written word has a deeper impact. What do you think of the concept of "AudioBlogs?" Would you like to hear the voice of your favorite bloggers occasionally? Would you rather listen to or read your favorite Blogs? Ya know, I think I'll pass on audio blogs for now. I don't know. Maybe if there was a way to package them up and listen to them in the car, I'd go for it.

BONUS: How deep is your love? Very.

Cut!
