Last month, I wrote about working at the polls to investigate the reality of election fraud.  To those who suggested I’m naïve, I wrote: “I trust elections for the same reason I get every recommended vaccine because while I know election fraud exists, and vaccines cause death, both are exceedingly rare.”

Editor’s note:  One of my favorite books was Donald Miller’s “A Million Miles in a Thousand Years”.  The book is an entertaining tale of how Miller learned to live a better life story.  Godin, my favorite blogger, captures the essence of the theme here, particularly with his powerful last sentence:  “rewrite the script, rewrite the outcome”.

Editor’s comment: I read a brief clip of this Claire Suddath Bloomberg interview in the monthly magazine and was struck by his opening response, which is excerpted below.

 

Excerpt:  “Meditation is a way to bypass the thinking process, which gives us anxiety.  As soon as you feel stress, your cortisol goes up, your adrenaline goes up, your breath gets shallow, your heart rate goes up.  The best way to stop that is to just stop…observe…pause and ask yourself, ‘what is the best way for me right now to handle this situation?’
