Yo Dunkin – where’s my cream cheese? / Words about “Positive Obsession” / Quote via Steven Tyler

morning babble / Monday 04-03-23

This is the scribble that leads to the babble. Sometimes, it gets tidied up; but other times, not so much. When all else fails: watch the video!

What’s wrong with this world today . . . I’ll get to that in a second.

Happy Monday! Glad to get that April Fools Weekend done. Social Media all confusing – Chick-Fil-A open on Sundays . . . let’s go! They’re not.

I’ll tell you one thing that has happened which I wish was a joke. No more cream cheese at Dunkin locations. That’s a tragedy. (pix) That’s my favorite bagel concoction from them. Everything Bagel – toasted – with cream cheese and then I get a side of Snackin’ Bacon. At home, I level out the cream cheese and place the Snackin’ Bacon on top.


Talking about setting up some goals and knocking them down – just for the week

I had a possible “quote of the day” that sent me down a rabbit hole – “Positive obsession is a gift, not a behavior to be suppressed.” I wanted to know who said it. So – I “googled” it. BUT – I couldn’t find the person to be quoted.

I did find a blog post from one my favorite authors – Austin Kleon – from St. Patty’s Day, two years ago in 2021. Click here for the posting – “You have to be obsessed.”

He writes about another author – Octavia E Butler – and one of her essays that is titled “Positive Obsession”. He quotes her as saying “Obsession can be a useful tool if it’s positive obsession.”

Within another essay about persistence from Butler, Kleon highlights the quote from her: “Forget talent. If you have it, fine. Use it. If you don’t have it, it doesn’t matter. As habit is more dependable than inspiration, continued learning is more dependable than talent.”

Just get back at it / Set a goal and go for it / Keep Going!
