My facebook status from two years ago on 9/11: "Jeremy did the best improv of his life during his L.A. YMCA interview when, to gauge his sales skills, they asked him to 'sell' them a foam pen with a bobble flamingo on top. It was priceless. If only it was filmed..."
This past week I feel like I was in the best improv scene of my life with two great teammates. I'm still high from it. Thank you Eric Reeser / John Corrigan / David Magidoff and Monkey Butler L.A. Our class is ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS, unequivocally, the high point of my week.
So on this 10th anniversary of the tragedy of 9/11, I choose to reflect and reflect deeply on the event and the past 10 years of my life. I fully expect that every 9/11 will be a personal day of reflection for the rest of my life.
According to Wikipedia, "vampires do not have a reflection and sometimes do not cast a shadow."
What does this mean? It means that if you're NOT REFLECTING, YOU'RE DEAD. Or, you're dead to life and just going through the motions.
Can you allow 1, 5, 10 years to pass and just write it off to life and not use that experience and wisdom to build higher, dig deeper or live stronger?
No. You can't afford that.
So today, of all days, you MUST think about where you are, where you've been and where you're headed or you will truly be a boat without a rudder.
