Good Intentions January 21, 2008

Steven Gonzales 1/21/2008 

There is a saying that I have heard a few times over the last month, and have found it very interesting everytime someone says it: “The road to hell is paved with good intentions”. The reason I find it so interesting is that sadly enough many people in this world fall victim to not fully reaching their desired goal. You have seen it, everyday people say they are going to ‘loose weight’, ‘find a new job’, ‘fix a broken relationship’, etc, and the list goes on. New Years Resolutions, they are set by millions of people as good intentions, but ironically never materialize. It is very sad, but very true. Ironically people who make these claims rarely act to resolve the issue they are so passionate about. Why is this?

It is said that the first step to solving a problem is admiting one exisits. The transitioning point of defining the problem and taking action to solving it is where the trouble lies for most people. Is it because we lack motivation? Maybe because we see other people not follow through with their promises, so we follow their lead. If we are serious about becoming better people in life, why is it so hard for us to make the neccessary changes to correct ourselves?

What keeps you on focus towards reaching your goals? Keeping life in perspective and creating a solid outline of my objectives are what keeps me focused. I once read that overall brain function and health are increased in individuals who mentor others. Please feel free to share some of your strengths with others. Establish yourself as the ‘go-to’ person and you will see a major positive impact in your personal development. This is also a good skill to keep your goals on track.

Take a moment to share your strengths by adding a comment to this message. What keeps you on track? Do you set New Year’s Resolutions? If you do not carry them out, what causes you to stop? Use this time to reflect regarding the type of person you are and where you want to end up. 2008 is still a brand new year and you have time to prepare yourself for it.

Quick synopsis of the Blue Man Group:


Wow. Last night was amazing. Blue Man Group graced us with its presence at the US Airways Center in Downtown Phoenix. With the show, I didn’t even know what to expect, I didn’t read up on it and had only seen commercials prior to seeing the show. I was just blown away by the entire time. From the well-played acting and incredible music that engulfed every inch of the Center to the opening act.

The Blue Man Group opening act my friends was incredible. Think what DJ Supreme had in mind for the turntable revolution and times it by 10. Mr. Mike Relm was intense and casual, turning on songs like the Charlie Brown theme and Pee-wees playhouse. Who does that? Amazing. Would definitely go to see him when he’s on his own out there, because he will be and I think he may have already been.


Reality Shows that Just got better July 9, 2007

Everyone I’m sure has a reality show that just does it for them, from Flavor of Love and I Love New York to the Surreal Life and America’s next top Model. But, there is one that just seems to get the most play–Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, every Sunday night millions of Americans watch families get thieir homes redone. This right here is a parody of that show on You Tube — Check out I’m Nice.

 What I think is most interesting is the responses from a couple of people are in video form, something that’s just really catching on in You Tube world, I would think people would be all about it from the get go.
