Let's Review --
How well did you perform today? Though you are not an actor on a stage, you are very likely performing a role in society - at work, as a student, as a homemaker, manager… in other words, unless you are retired, or living a life of leisure, you are playing an active role on your stage of life. Now that you know that, take a moment to focus on your performance, either today, or for tomorrow, and realize that you can actively improve that performance, aided with the knowledge in this handbook. It is important to note, that we normally play more roles than one, and it is important to review all the roles you play, in your daily routine. That could involve your work (a producer/convertor), your getting to work (commuter) , the results you produce at work ( convertor) , your interaction with people (socialization) , your role as either a leader (manager) or worker, getting home (commuter) , stopping at the grocery store ( consumer), being with your wife or husband (partner/companion), your children (mother/father), friends (comradeship) or relatives (relative).
It's no wonder at times, that we get so stretched out!
At work -- it is important to realize that it's your performance as well as your reputation that is reviewed and scrutinized. Whatever your role, take an active part in performing better, using your new found assets and tools and resources. And… make sure you find a way to record your results. There is no harm whatsoever in making sure you get credit for your performance and the contributions you make. In each situation, we have a different stage on which to perform. Question is, is it the stage you want to be on? And -- if not, can you change it?
Master your Craft --
No matter what you decide to do in life, part of your objective(s) is to master your craft. That means going from Knowledge --> Experience --> Skill ------> into talent. This is most true for whatever you choose as a career. It is also true for any creative craft that you want to exercise and pick up. Since you only have so much time, you must choose what you are going to do, and then to what extent, and... to what level. At that point, you should know when, and what, and how much to 'exercise' you assets in any given area. Note that it is important to not only do what you need to do to make a living, but make sure you put aside time for those things that you enjoy as well.
In the data processing field, we setup and run programs. One of the first objectives is to get the code into test mode. That allows us to test the big pieces and then start to narrow down and solve the problems until we have the system tested and fine tuned. The point is, you can do the same. Get yourself into 'test' mode and then start refining yourself and your life until it's a lot closer to where you want it to be. Start debugging until your program is running smooth as can be... The secret of champions... nuff said.
Now on the opposite of an asset... liabilities!

The wit and wisdom of Michael M. Hall Part IV Wrap Up - Always Seek the Perfect Wave
Making Sense of it all...
My Goal is to show you and to share with you, a set of principles and philosophies that I use on a daily basis to get through life as well as some experiences. I am betting that you can use some of these to make your life easier and to add to your ability to enhance and enrich your life. The overall goal and title of “ Always Seek the Perfect Wave ” is the embodiment of all of these philosophies combined. Much of what you read you have probably already thought about within your lifetime. You just haven’t taken the time to format what you were thinking and write it down. It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something! I grew up in a time of free thinkers and writers, artists and musicians. Though influenced by this to some degree (I think you will be able to tell...) I have been writing all my life and luckily have had the time to capture a variety of these ‘original’ thoughts. They are now here in black and white for your review. I have no doubt that you will see some of your philosophies and beliefs in the next few pages and I hope that you agree with and can use some of them. I also realize that you may not agree with some of them and I hope you will take that moment to redefine or come up with a similar principle or characteristic of your own that fits you. As far as the title goes, I dedicated fifteen years of my life to surfing. I spent nine of those years in Hawaii, on or near the North Shore, living out a dream. Even though I don’t get to the ocean as much, the philosophy remains the same. I realized later in life that I was doing something I loved and realized that it boiled down to searching for that perfect ride which of course, involves the perfect wave. That only happens when ‘everything’ is perfect. Even though that kind of situation is very rare, this philosophy gives me a major point of reference and a guidepost to try and live a bit more dynamically than usual and I use it every day.
Let’s Get Started...
Part I - Some Basics
Determine what pace is correct for you. Too slow and you will get frustrated; too fast and you get stressed. Develop a pattern that others recognize and expect and respect. Of course you may have to speed up if there’s danger and definitely slow down in order to relax.
Take It Easy on Yourself
Life can be tough. Yea, a lot of stuff is already figured out but sometimes life can flat get you down. So, there’s no reason to put a lot of stress and weight on yourself. Simply put - take it easy on yourself because life is tough enough as it is.
Time is Money
It is the only thing that we truly have to spend. Everything else is trading and business and economics, etc... Think about it. The way in which you use your time, determines how you live. Don’t waste it. You can never get any of it back.
Visualize the Results You Seek
One of the greatest wealths a person can have is the ability to turn abstract thought into reality...
Are you a bit too laid back or a bit too casual? Are you out at sea with your sails fluffing in the wind? Or - do you know exactly where you’re headed?
Grab the tiller! Chart your course! How will you reach your destination if you don’t know what it is? Otherwise, you’re just going with the flow.
Dream... Don’t be afraid... visualize what you want... at some time, during the day, everyday and use it as the ultimate goal and achievement for your lifetime. Where to you want to be a year from now?
