life: acoustic & amplified

poetry, quotes & thoughts about life

Any dead fish can go with the flow — you have to be intentionally alive to swim against the current. – Ann Voskamp


“If the risk is fully aligned with your purpose and mission, then it’s worth considering.”

“If someone is always to blame, if every time something goes wrong someone has to be punished, people quickly stop taking risks. Without risks, there can’t be breakthroughs.”

“True disruption means threatening your existing product line and your past investments. Breakthrough products disrupt current lines of businesses.”

– Peter Diamandis

Don’t watch the clock; do what it does. Keep going.
– Sam Levenson

Breakthroughs usually come to me
like a fist to the gut,
then comes the battle for denial,
the self-pleading not to allow it,
the desperate attempt
to keep things status quo.
I never want to rock the apple cart,
I never want to lose anything,
especially people I love,
and comfortable dwelling places.
But breakthroughs must break through.
Truth must win
to gain my peace again.
It is what it is…always
refuses to be avoided,
no matter how hard I try.
Once acknowledged
all is quiet in the kingdom,
and I can begin to make a new plan
ever forward.
