I heard a motivational speaker say, “If it is to be, its up to me.” Don’t leave your well being up to others. Apathy facilitates corruption. It is true that God helps those who help themselves. Do all the good you can. VOTE.

Do all the good you can, and John McCain’s quote about serving a purpose higher than yourself

When the great American John McCain died in late August 2018, I was greatly moved.

No. I did not agree with him politically. But I respected John McCain. The quote on this poster I made (attached) rocks my world and exemplifies why I admire and respect him so much.

From the bottom of my heart, I am compelled to Sing Books with Emily because of what John MCain says in this quote. I was not cut out to be in the military. I was not called to be a teacher. But I am compelled to sing songs and Sing Books with Emily was the best way I could think of to put my singing to use, hopefully, for the greater good.

The image on this poster was one I made for singing the song Do All the Good You Can. I made a book for that song that begins with the first lines of lyrics and one red circle. As the song progresses, colors are added to the inside of the circle, building a rainbow, culminating with the heart in the bulls-eye.

Do All the Good You Can is a credo written by John Wesley for the Methodist Church. I read the credo, however, not religiously, but as a humanist. And, on accident, I discovered that the credo can be sung to the same tune as My Country Tis of Thee. I figured out ukulele chords, made that book, and started singing the song with kids in their classrooms. They caught on quickly. I hope you can hear someday the beautiful sound of a room full of young voices singing the words.

Until then, we can all strive to live up to John McCain’s suggestion in this quote.  Please feel free to print this poster and put it up as a reminder.

Ten Things that Require Zero Talent

I saw this in a picture in NY Times Style Magazine, Sunday, 9/11/2016:

TEN THINGS THAT REQUIRE ZERO TALENT

  • Being on time
  • Work ethic
  • Effort
  • Body language
  • Energy
  • Attitude
  • Passion
  • Being coachable
  • Doing extra
  • Being prepared

**********************

Of course there is critical thinking that should go into following a list like this, but there are always things we can pick to do better, and sometimes a little tweak in methodology can make a big difference.
