Pick Me Up

Pick Me Up

What lifts your spirit?

Hi Laurie,

Lots of things can do so.
Laughter is a good one.
Justice, someone getting something they have worked hard for.
Connecting with Ailsa, where we each get to experience we are loved.
Solving some particularly difficult problem gives me a buzz.
Looking out at the awesome beauty of nature – watching the ocean, mountains, dolphins whales, seabirds, from our deck.
Spent three days and nights in the high mountains at the Hutton’s Shearwater colony last week – that was mostly great – saw a new species of lizard that I had only previously heard about. Also had a chamois looking at us while we worked for about 3 hours.
Sitting on the ocean in a small boat usually makes me feel pretty good.
Having a really good conversation with someone where we each learn stuff and explore new ideas is great.
Getting a difficult piece of code to do what I want always feels great.
Playing with the dog or small children usually does it too.
Making something physical – particularly working with wood, but also with metals or concrete.
Making a difference for someone, even if they don’t know it at the time.

A great thing to think about – thanks Laurie – this exercise in itself.

About Ted Howard NZ

Seems like I might be a cancer survivor. Thinking about the systemic incentives within the world we find ourselves in, and how we might adjust them to provide an environment that supports everyone (no exceptions) - see www.tedhowardnz.com/money
