“Satisfying work is the intersection of what what you like to do, what you are good at, and what an organization values.

For many people, knowing the intersection of these three circles is the hardest part of adult life.”

Salvador Dali is exactly the kind of wackjob that I would want to spend extensive time with. Why? In addition to the obvious body of artwork, he had an inspiring presence. He was eccentric, grandiose, and nothing but ordinary. He also drew a close analogy between food and sex.

He said  “every morning upon awakening, I experience a supreme pleasure: that of being Salvador Dalí.”  I know I already think this, but putting it in conscious words will make it all the more exciting to start your day. Having a strong sense of who you are is so important.

Happy fucking birthday (yesterday).

“I, with a deeper instinct, choose a man who compels my strength, who makes enormous demands on me, who does not doubt my courage or my toughness, who does not believe me naive or innocent, who has the courage to treat me like a woman.”

Pretty soon I will be heading up to the home of one of the most Shakespeare festivals: Ashland, Oregon.

“If it is possible, live an experience and don’t fix it with any words, because that will make it narrow.

Don’t even say, “This is beautiful,” because the moment you say that it is beautiful, it is no longer the same. By saying beautiful, you are bringing in the past, and all the experiences that you said were beautiful have colored the word.”
