You Are Completely Useless

Twitter status update from @GeorgeBray: "Your mobile phone has more computing power than all of NASA in 1969. NASA launched a man to the moon. We launch a bird into pigs."

Lol- doesn't that make you feel totally useless? Reading it has actually motivated me to try to be more epic. I gotta start working on my non-fiction book proposal again for a manual of politics and history for Tea Partiers. After several false starts this winter (that went something like: write paragraph, read paragraph, delete paragraph, loathe and hate myself, rinse and repeat), it kinda fizzled out.

Can't let myself be discouraged. I have more advantages, resources, and time than any author ever had who published amazing works of fiction and non-fiction. The status update above poignantly illustrates that. I'm whoring here a little... but could I get some love in the comment thread to motivate me even more?

:-P

Oh yeah- and what epic goal are you putting off in favor of Angry Birds or whatever your personal equivalent of that happens to be? And what's stopping you? Don't say Angry Birds- that's a distraction we use to keep us from pursuing epic goals because of the real reason that's stopping us (Hint: it usually has something to do with fear).

Onward we march!
