Segment 1 Famous Quotations
“Just stay open. Because you never know when the magic might happen.” Paul Dolman, from his book, Hitchhiking with Larry David
“Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and
make a new ending.” Author Maria Robinson
Segment 2 Our 100th Episode…A Look Back
This is our 100th episode! In April of 2010 we recorded our very 1st podcast with the help of Cliff Ravenscraft. Cliff is the authority on podcasting and is the Podcast Answerman! Cliff traveled to Nashville and in 1 full day he had our show up and on iTunes. We are forever grateful to him.
Since then we have produced 100 episodes and while the main topic usually centers on real estate investing, we have found a way to bring in other topics that relate to sound business practices and personal development.
Today we take a look back and include audio clips from some of those shows. We think you will thoroughly enjoy the highlights…we know we did!
Segment 3 Heart Topic: Enjoy the Drive
Most of you may remember the great Pixar movie: “CARS”. It’s about a hot-shot race-car named Lightning McQueen who gets waylaid in Radiator Springs, where he finds the true meaning of life, family & friendship.
We’ve never seen this movie…but are committed to watching it very soon after catching 10 minutes of it and hearing these lines:
Sally (The Porsche): Forty years ago, that interstate down there didn’t exist.
Lightning McQueen (The Race Car): Really?
Sally: Yeah. Back then, cars came across the country a whole different way.
Lightning McQueen: How do you mean?
Sally: Well, the road didn’t cut through the land like that interstate. It moved with the land, it rose, it fell, it curved. Cars didn’t drive on it to make great time. They drove on it to have a great time.
This weekend interstate construction forced us to take a two-lane highway to reach our destination. At first this brought on some frustrating thoughts:
- We had a timed event to get to
- The trip would take longer
- The trip required more planning
However, once we considered it, we became excited because we hadn’t traveled this highway in many years. We knew it would be a beautiful drive with many scenic views. So we decided to forget about making great time and instead have a great time!
Our question this week is: How long has it been since you enjoyed a simple ride through the countryside? Today, slow down and take the scenic route.
Until next week, Peace!
