Steverino learns a new word from the table of knowledge...

Buenos dias mi amigos...

7 and a half years ago, my wife and I moved to the great land down under. She surfs, so we scoped the best beaches to live near and chose a fabulous little village called Manly. We fell in love with the place and the people. One of my favourite spots is a local coffee shop called Fusion Point. Every morning a handful of the locals gather 'round what is kindly referred to as the Table of Knowledge. It's a rag tag bunch of brilliant souls. All with unbelievable stories, interesting personalities and strongly held opinions. I've learned a lot showing up and sipping on strong capaccinos. 

Just a few weeks' back I even learned a new word:

Shamozzle

What the heck, right? Just try and say that 5 times fast.

Turns out it's Yiddish for, 'A problem or situation that isn't necessary and could have been avoided.' 

Talk about an education (Thanks T.O.K., nothing but love for you guys).

And, a perfect word to describe a lot of people's lives out there. 

It seems like more and more people run around from one shamozzle to the next scratching their heads about why they can't seem to get ahead.

That's the crazy thing about the over informed and over-connected world we live in...

We're too busy to slow down and ask for directions. 

Two simple things that would make a world of difference, and a difference in our little world. 

Deep down, a lot of you out there just love the chaos.

In fact, you're addicted to it. 

Over-promising and overcommitting to feel important...heck, to just feel anything at all.

Trust me, I've been there.

But, there's a different way to live. 

It's not for the faint of heart.

And, it requires you do those two little things:

  1. Slow down.
  2. And, ask for directions.

If I can help, just reach out.

Here's to avoiding unnecessary situations...
