Dear Fourteen Y’oda Me,

Today is—let’s say episode four in the set of two trilogies, which do not play in chronological order. (Try to keep up.) That’s six episodes— God I hope I don’t have six episodes, I digress. Today, I am a great Jedi warrior, traveling back in time to offer some sage advise to… fourteen Y’oda me:

  •   Quick easy path do not choose: Be the tortoise, not the hare. Life is not a race, but if it were, it would be a marathon, not a sprint— perhaps a marathon with hurdles, but still definitely not a sprint. Slow down and be thorough. 
  •   To hate give in not: The world is full of mean girls. Do not engage them. They’ll get bored and go away.
  •   Control you must learn: This means moderation in all things— except things like effort. Avoid gluttony.
  •   Clear your mind must be: Let the rock stars party. We need clarity to succeed.
  •   Let go you must of everything you are afraid to loose: Contrary to George Carlins belief that: “All you need in life is a little place for your stuff”, I say get rid of the stuff, and you’ll need nothing. 
  •   Be not concerned with how. Do or do not… there is no try. #ceosarenotcouchpotatoes This really merits no explanation. Get up, and attempt to do something. Decide on something and focus. Put yourself out on a limb and reach.

  •   Your father he is: Find a way to apply this idea in your every day life. My thought is that this has something to do with the “six degrees of separation” idea, that we are all connected somehow by six or fewer people. With that in mind, treat all people with kindness.

Regarding the following Yoda-ism, I have yet to gain insight into its merit. 

  •   Size matters not. (?)
