From my book series, “Beyond Your Potential” >>

They Can Do It and You Can’t

If you have lost part of your skills and part of your life in some way, you will look at others in a strange way and wonder why they do not know what you could be going through. The rest of the world seems to be going on as usual and only you have changed; an extremely lonely experience. Things have changed, but you are the one seeing this change the most: a big challenge. Face that challenge and move through the change—pushing forward all the time.

Put in More than Half-Effort

Challenge yourself! It is difficult to emphasize this enough. Whether you juggle, play basketball, climb mountains, make up tunes at the piano, or play cribbage—challenge yourself to be your very best, no matter your physical abilities. There are ways of exploring the limits of our skills, desires, and abilities as we try and improve them. Don’t just make a feeble attempt at what you do, putting in half the effort. Drive yourself toward excellence!

Do Your Very Best Every Time

No matter how good or bad you are at things, aim toward doing your very best—every time. This is something I learned in my juggling days. When I practiced, I put full effort into each attempt of a juggling trick. Put your all into every attempt of every task at hand; push yourself toward excellence, no matter what your circumstances might be. By excellence, I mean to do it at the very best of your ability, not just general excellence. Don’t compare yourself with others. Make this aiming toward excellence a habit and it will make your life a wonderful adventure.


3/28 through 4/1—What to do, what to do. With things closing down it has been very difficult to be on the road. I heard from my Facebook friend, Trea Cleaves, who is living near Austin, Texas. I decided to go for a visit.

You see, I was in Louisiana and heading to New Orleans to see a juggling friend, he let me know that the virus was rampant there, so I changed direction heading back toward Austin.

4/2—So, after a pleasant stay with Shasta and Sondra and Trea, I was anxious to get back on the road, to the south again. It makes it difficult to travel, normally I stop at various McDonald’s and libraries, where I can plug in and use their WiFi, but, now I can still get their WiFi while in the parking lot, but I need to plug in to charge things, so, a difficulty.

Trea, I do hope you find your way back to horses.

Right now I am parked in a residential area parked for the night, 7pm. I will type for awhile and read; very quiet and comfortable here. Currently I am pleasing my palate with apples and grapes and cheese and crackers. Obtained from a food bank, a great dinner it is. And, the glass of wine adds to it well.

Yet, I moved. There is a train track not too far away, and I did not want to hear trains through the night, so off I went toward the south. Found a friendly place toward the south where I will be for the night.

I’ve been writing to you every week for more than a year, a fun project for me. I am thinking I might, in the future, stay in the wilderness offline for a week or two, please don’t panic if you don’t find my blog (like you ever care—I hardly hear from anyone about the words I write. So, do you can?)

I think I wrote to you before about my spilling boiling water on my foot? Well, it has been hurting, much, I hope I won’t have to chop my foot off, that might hurt!

4/3—This date, back in 1982 I was hit by a truck and went through a 37-day coma. I’ve learned much since then and have helped many people, which makes me happy.

Today I have a slight sore throat. With this Corona thing, it gets me thinking.

4/4—Heading back to be at Shasta, Sondra, and Trea’s house. I tried to make it out on my own, but, with libraries and McDonald’s closed, I have no where to power up my devices. Thanks so much for letting me stay over and use electricity.

Are you smiling and friendly, even when you don’t feel like it? Make it a constant habit, it will make your life better.

What’s next for Kit, hummm, I guess we will both find out later.
