🎦 Watch on YouTube: https://youtu.be/8uwMzaW_f1M  💾 Quotes "A good marriage is that in which each appoints the other guardian of his solitude.  Once the realization is accepted that even between the closest human beings, infinite distances continue to exist, a wonderful living side by side can grow up.  If they succeed in loving the distance between them which makes it possible for each other to see the other whole against a wide sky.  Love consists in this, that two solitudes protect and touch and greet each other." ~ Rilke   "Just the effort itself, I learned to recognize that, trying to build a better world was satisfying in and of itself and necessary whether or not it actually succeeded.  We all had to try.  And I think that's the moment of courage where you say 'I'm going to try this regardless of whether it works because it's a worthy mission'." ~ Rick Doblin, MAPS 📚 Topics: Rant of the Day - Introverts vs. Extroverts (dependent and independent)  How I met my wife and my approach to dating  Advice for finding a girlfriend  Men are from Mars Women are from Venus Book 💼 Working Remotely: Efficiently and Effectively Free Course  ☕ http://remote.battleshipcobra.com (Free)   🧮 SQL FOR SAP BUSINESS ONE COURSE NOW AVAILABLE 📈  http://sql.battleshipcobra.com (50% off)   📊 CRYSTAL REPORTS FOR SAP BUSINESS ONE COURSE 💎  http://crystal.battleshipcobra.com (50% off)   😎 More About BattleshipCobra  http://battleshipcobra.com/     💸 Support These Videos http://donate.battleshipcobra.com/

S01E06 - Take a Breath
🎦 Watch on YouTube: https://youtu.be/IPnvmkBbtoY 💾 Quotes "We have everything we need.  There is no need for self-improvement.  All these trips that we lay on ourselves, the heavy duty fearing that we're bad and hoping that we're good, the identities that we so dearly cling to.  The rage, the jealousy and addictions never touch our basic wealth.  They are like clouds that temporarily block the sun, but all the time our warmth and brilliance are right here.  This is who we really are.  We are one blink of an eye away from being fully awake." ~ Pema Chodron   "The line separating good and evil passes not through states, nor between classes, nor between political parties either -- but right through every human heart." ~ Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn   📚 Topics:  Rant of the Day!  Warehouse workers are too dumb (QB rant) Meditation    - It will make you better at everything you do    - Doesn't have to be complex    - Focus on your breath  Why projects fail  - I get asked all the time why projects fail    - Always looks like a mess in the middle of it    - Sometimes it's just not a good fit    - Sometimes the scoping doesn't match the customer expectations    - Poor communication leading to lack of trust.  - Owners not involved    - Blueprinting missed the mark.
