"Monday 5 Things" with D. Paul Graham

Monday 5 Things…..Making The Most of “UN’s”…..

Opportunities and disappointments.  Choices and change. Dreams and perspective. Successes and failures. Elation and tears.  Reflections on this uncommon year that has passed in the proverbial blink.  It seems unlikely that we are on the cusp of Anno Domini 2018, yet here we are.  Today M5T considers “UN’s” that can positively impact our lives as we approach the new year.

1.  Unrestrained.

Take time to play.  Often.  Laugh.  Without restraint.

2.  Unconventional.

Eschew commonality, conformance, and complacency.  Avoid flippancy, presumption, and superiority. Exercise tolerance, forgiveness, and compassion.

3.  Unexpected.

Practice random and generous acts of charity.  Privately.  Without anyone else knowing.

4.  Unafraid.

Given a choice, take the road less traveled. Always.  Push away from comfort zones.  Choose to live your dreams. Be awesome and extraordinary.

5.  Uninhibited.

Savor tastes.  Inhale aromas. See light and colors.  Love without limits.  


Here’s to a week of discovering and embracing the “UN’s” in your life, your laughter, and who you love.
