Notes from the Post-it Wall | Week of August 4, 2019
• Perception is not reality. Something that’s unfun for one person does not make it unfun for everyone. It doesn’t take a village, it takes enough people in that village.
• Even the good insurgencies, over time, become the establishment.
• I was the manager of a guy who didn’t curse. He would even get offended when I cursed. Ultimately, we fired him. He sucked at his job and the changes in the department demanded he go, but when I think back on it, I prefer to remember him being fired because he was offended by cursing and he generally fucking sucked.
• Success can always be found in that narrow space between constant effort and letting go.
• Sometimes, I feel the only answer is to be twenty-five again. Drive to Beatty, Nevada for a night to terrorize the town in the nicest way possible. On the way back into Las Vegas, swing past Spring Mountain and Valley View for some relaxation. Sleep it off for a solid eight hours then go swimming in my pool, alone. But alas, I have to be a goddamn adult. And if I were twenty-five again, that means I’d have to be twenty-nine again, and I don’t want to have to relive that godforsaken year.
• If you applaud yourself for doing something good, you’re no different than a toddler who drank all their milk.
