Whenever I think “Canadian,” intelligent, nice and bad haircuts come to mind.

Must be all the snow and life in the igloos.



Now Jim is describing a “mental” place that he experienced and found incredibly enjoyable.

This is the same “place” that Jill Bolte Taylor described in her TED video when describing her stroke.

Truth is we have ALL had this experience and continue to do so from time to time.

Let’s call them “moments of greater clarity”.



You may have been OUT of your normal environment, on vacation, or just having a great day when everything seemed to just be working better.

You were not LOST or dreaming. On the contrary your thoughts were so clear that you wanted to make notes on what to DO about your daily issues or challenges. Maybe you even did make notes.

The problem is that “habitual thinking” brought you right back to the realities of our “normal” world.

Too bad, since somehow we know that decisions made in that state of “greater clarity” could have created better results or at least, different results.



The 2 questions to ask yourself are.

1/ what was I doing just before recognizing that moment of clarity and did I like it?

2/ Would life be slightly different if I could have more of those moments and even incorporate them into my daily routines.



Ok, there is a third question.

3/ Who let this Canadian guy in here!?

Guilty on two counts...... :D

By being nice, one can get through life even with a succession of bad haircuts.

We “profile” Canucks down here by looking for the toque and the back bacon! :))

911- "Hello, 911, what is your problem?"

Yankee Cracker- "There’s a suspicious guy wandering around my neighborhood."

911- "Is he wearing a hoodie? He’s probably harmless."

Yankee Cracker- "No. He’s got a toque and he…"

911- “Stay in your car, sir. The SWAT team will be right there! Don’t make eye contact and if he approaches, play dead.”

Exactly. The last thing you want to do is attract attention. They'll come over, all polite and that, start talking about the weather and hockey, using all those long vowels that terrify Americans. Worst. Experience. Ever.
