I missed Sunday Salon and missed pretty much writing about anything, because I COULD NOT LOG IN TO MY BLOG! It’s just sooo frustrating! I upgraded to the latest version, it prompted me to log in again, and BAM! It never stops prompting me to log in again. Please log in again. Please log in again. I tried everything. I went to the forum, I emailed them. Nobody knows why. I tried deleting the old files, replacing them with the new ones, even hacking into the sql database. I felt like tearing my hair out and bang my head against the wall! #^!&@^!&^!%!&$! So finally a minute ago, I tried logging in from IE and I can… So I CAN log in from IE but NOT FIREFOX. I always use Firefox and I have no idea why this time it fails me so. I don’t know who to blame. WordPress or Firefox.
Anyhoo, moving on from the frustration…
I just read Who Moved My Cheese yesterday. Read it in the bathroom in the morning, during short commutes, and at night. Very short. It probably took me less than 2 hours in total. I like it. My review to come soon. I soon read this book after watching Randy Pausch‘s Time Management lecture (who passed away a couple of days ago). In that lecture he recommended 2 books: One Minute Manager by Spencer Johnson (the same author with Who Moved My Cheese) and The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen R. Covey. I’d like to read both books. Who Moved My Cheese was given by a friend.
For those of you who have not seen it, I highly recommend his Last Lecture: Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams. Go see at youtube or google video. It’s everywhere. I do wish I could be in Carnegie Mellon and attended one of his lectures (Well I do have a lot of wishes in life).
The brick walls are not there to keep us out. The brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something. Because the brick walls are there to stop the people who don’t want it badly enough.
I do need to be reminded of this from time to time. I mean I know of this fact, but it’s really hard to remember it when your head is bleeding from bumping into the brick walls too many times.
On the other hand, I’m entering week 3 of Wuthering Heights. I can actually finish it this week, but I’d like to keep my pace in synch with my readalong group, so I’m gonna slow down a bit. We’re probably gonna finish it next week. It’s kinda weird, but I get to like the old English after about half a book. I still need to concentrate more than reading contemporary fiction though. So I found out that I read this book the fastest in the morning, when my mind is still fresh and awake.
I’m so glad I could post something again. Phew..
