I’m the king of beating myself up. The post below from Seth Godin describes it perfectly.
Beating yourself up…
This odd behavior mostly shows up when others are criticizing us, disappointed or angry about something we did. Odd because it’s so useless.
In those moments, there are already plenty of other people beating you up. Save yourself the trouble.
The rest of the time, when things are going well, it’s foolish to stop and engage in self-criticism. It makes more sense to encourage yourself, to bootstrap your way to even more of a ruckus.
So, the moments left to beat yourself up = zero.
FEAR, RESENTMENT & REVENGE can be great motivators.
MY SON & I made another appearance on the popular Kid Friday podcast. Check it out via iTunes, Player FM and Vimeo.
ITS A MYSTERY TO ME that I’ve never been picked for jury duty. I pay my taxes, vote, and more than happy to be on a jury! Seriously, the fact I’ve never been summoned really bugs me.
THE WALKING DEAD SEASON PREMIERE is this Sunday. #PSYCHED. Who got the barbed wire busiNess end of Negan’s baseball bat?
WE DIG ACTION FLICKS so my son and I enjoyed the new Jack Reacher movie. Predictable, yet fun though we thought the first one was better.
I WISH IT COULD BE SO EASY to just have no more fucks to give.
THE WORK IS NEVER DONE When it comes to self-improvement and learning. That’s an easy thing to forget. Its easy to fall into a “trap” of thinking, “I’ve done all this work on myself, and things are still this way…” or “The same thing happened to me despite all the work I’ve done and things I thought I learned.”
The work we do on ourselves, the continuing pursuit of self-improvement, is never finished. Ultimately, that’s a positive thing. Fortunately, I’ve always had a great work ethic.
SIX MONTHS? Six months.
I loved Guardians of the Galaxy as did millions of others as it was one of the highest grossing movies of 2014 (over $737 million at the box office, making it the highest-grossing comic book film of 2014 and third highest-grossing film of that year). Of course that kind of success demands a sequel (what movie based on a comic book doesn’t?) and here’s a teaser of the next movie, which will hit practically every single multiplex in North America on May 5, 2017
It’s time to get hooked on a feeling again.

Actually, make that favorite movie scenes from one of my favorite movies, Midnight Run. Because there’s so many fun and terrific scenes in this 1988 buddy comedy starring Robert DeNiro and Charles Grodin.
Midnight Run put the great character actor Joe Pantoliano on my radar. Don’t know the name? You know who he is as he’s played a slew of memorable characters in movies and TV. played the bail bondsman Eddie Moscone. I thought of Midnight Run as Pantoliano is the guest on the latest episode of Gilbert Gottfried’s Amazing Colossal Podcast. Give it a listen – Pantoliano tells some great stories about his many roles as well as his upbringing in New Jersey.
On to the clips…love these…
And R.I.P. Dennis Farina, who played Jimmy Serrano. Here again, this is the first time I saw Farina and I immediately became a fan. Check out 1:24 with the moron bounty hunters. Never fails to crack me up.
Here’s a great compilation of great scenes…
DID YOU KNOW? The studio originally wanted Cher for the accountant role, played by Charles Grodin!
DID YOU KNOW? Director Martin Brest also directed Beverly Hills Cop and Scent of A Woman?
