Overtones are akin to richness of experience, depth of understanding.
Resonance with others equates to empathy, cooperation.

After owning two businesses for two decades, I finally got a real job... dream job actually! Combining my passions of technology, education, and skydiving, I was hired in January 2017 by the United States Parachute Association as Director of IT. Sadly, I am no longer taking on new web programming projects, but I'm still skydiving and teaching certification courses through Xcelskydiving and of course writing! Also, I am still available for public speaking events... just email me. This blog site serves to display my numerous previously published works as well as satisfy my continued urge for sharing my insights... you know, those thoughts you have at 4 o'clock in the morning.

# 1 + 1 = 3

Two individuals can do greater things together than the effect of their separate acheivements. Here's mathematical proof:

a=1
b=1
b=a

Now add a to both sides:
b + a = a + a
a + b  = 2a

Subtract 2b from both sides:
a + b - 2b = 2a - 2b
a - b = 2 (a - b)

Divide both sides by (a - b):
(a - b) = 2(a - b)
(a - b)     (a - b)

Add 1 to both sides:
(a - b)  + 1 =  2(a - b) + 1
(a - b)              (a - b)

Simplify, (a-b) cancel each other out:
1 + 1 = 2 + 1

So:
1 + 1 = 3

## How to Get Better (the LAZY way)

Goal setting, self-improvement, advancement, augmentation, progress, development... It's a constant and insatiable chase to an over-glorified, vague end game that never ends.  I like activity, but I don't like that race. So, here's what being a lazy drummer taught me about getting better at stuff.

## The tape recorder in my head

"What's wrong with you?"
"For being so smart, you sure are stupid."
"You're being lazy."

The mean person saying these things to me is... me. These phrases come from the tape recorder in my head that plays over and over. We all "beat ourselves up" with our dysfunctional internal dialogue. It's not helpful. But how do you erase these phrases and record better ones?

I bought a treadmill desk.
