Want A Better Life? Change Something!


I'm going to be straight with you... I don't like to change. 

Does anyone?  It's uncomfortable.

But I find change is necessary if you want a better life. 

Lately I've been thinking about how I can make some changes in my life and routine to produce better outcomes in my life. At Work. At Home. Beyond.

One Little Change, Then Another. 


Garden: We've always wanted a garden. My wife planned it out, and did the research. So I jumped in and got involved. Every week I take steps. The first week I ripped out the old bushes and replanted a rose bush. This week I planted a second rose bush, some asparagus and succulents and put down soil and mulch. Next Week We're planting three Artichoke Plants. All that was just the front yard. The REAL garden is starting out back tomorrow. Each week taking more small steps to the bigger vision.

Attitude: I had fallen into a rut at work, saying the same things to the same people, my heart was missing from my work. So I've done two things. 1. I'm actively looking for a new job. 2. But in the mean time I'm putting as much of myself as I can into each call. Being present for the caller. Finding anything I can do to make their day better. I feel better at work, surprise, and I'm getting better sales results too!

By definition "better" means change. 


Better means something has changed from how it was to how it now is.


As we used to say in AA, :

"The definition of insanity is: Doing the same thing over and over again, expecting different results." Albert Einstein

Or as Pastor Art Aragon says:

"Change isn't change until there's change; if you want change you have to change."

Sometimes a small change is enough to shift the balance and the rest of the pieces fall like dominoes.

Your Assignment, should you choose to accept it:

Take a new route to work.
Read a new book/author.
Eat at a new restaurant.
Say something you've never said.
Get up earlier.
Stay up later or go to bed earlier.
Fill out a job application
Fill out a job application for a different role than you've had before.

Try something new.

    Resource: Here is a book that radically changed my personal and spiritual life regarding personal change.

    The W Story Structure - 4 Sequence Story Structure

    Out of everything I've ever read on story structure for fiction writing, the W-Story Structure makes the most sense to me. If you'd rather view these as Acts (3-Act or 4-Act) you can overlay that on this W and it still works.



    Glen C. Strathy writes (in much more detail here) in his article, The W-Plot vs. The Dramatica Model of Story Structure. There are four sequences for most stories. Each of the four legs of the W is comprised of a sequence of events that lead the story along to it's natural conclusion.

    Sequence 1: setting up the problem (creating tension)Sequence 2: recovering from the problem (new ideas, positive momentum)Sequence 3: deepening of the problemSequence 4: the resolution of the problem (new light or understanding)

    Sequence 1: setting up the problem (creating tension)
    The Inciting Event (the event that is at the heart of the reason this story happened) may have occurred before your story begins, and often does. In King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (2017), th…

    Flavia Antoinette Wolfe: Here's what happened...

    Flavia Antoinette Wolfe died this morning (06/25/2018) at approximately 2:45 am PST. For update see
    http://www.darrellwolfe.com/2018/06/flavia-antoinette-wolfe-and-baby-wolfe.html?m=1

    The following is meant to answer some basic questions that everyone's asking me. I'd rather send a link then type or talk it out over and over. I'll add more memories and things later as I recall or rediscover. It's a little cathartic for me, to be able to get it out of my head anyway.

    The background leading up to this morning:


    On May 24, 2018, I got a text with a picture of a positive pregnancy test followed by "So... Boy, girl, twins?"We made appointments, got excited. Flavia was overweight but in generally good health otherwise, so-say-the-tests. However, the pregnancy hit her hard and fast. She said within a month of that test she was feeling like she did when she was six-months pregnant.06/06/2018: She took the boys to get Fro-Yo, it was nice outside, they decided to walk a…

    FICO

    $ 14  FICO
    W hat is a FICO score? Many people want to know what a FICO score is. FICO stands for the Fair Isaac Corporation, founded in 1956 and in 2009 renamed: FICO. This is the one company that has more control over your interest rates and loan approvals than any other. They review your credit reports and create a score based on the information found there.
                The formula that determines that score is TOP SECRET. The banks don't even know it. We do know a few things about the score though.  The Credit Scores can vary from 300 to 850, recently information has come out that it may go into the 900's now. A “Good Score” is hard to determine because different lenders have different cut off marks. According to Wikipedia the average marker in the USA is about 640.[1]This score is about the breaking point between bad and good. Typically, though, banks are looking for scores in the 700’s
    ~DSR or DTI~             The better your score the better the interest rate and the higher th…
