Wisdom On The Web

I came across the word Dayenu in an article about Stephen Hawking at Big Think. See this older blog post at which I explain more. Ben Kweller adopts the word “Dayenu” in the song Lizzy on his album Sha Sha. On his website he writes: Dienu is like an old folk word that’s Hebrew and it means ‘it would have been enough’… when something good happens to you and then another good thing happens to you. What you had in the first place would have been enough, if nothing else happens to you. It’s all about counting your blessings and staying grounded.

Life Power Tip

Break your goals into several manageable steps. Often we procrastinate because a task appears too huge or daunting. Reduce the size of tasks into small, manageable steps and you will find yourself accomplishing your intended outcomes almost by accident and with much greater ease.


Do a drawing or painting to print and share with friends, as a framed gift from you.


Check your breathing throughout the day. Take deeper, slow breaths.


Courage does not always roar. Sometimes, it is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, “I will try again tomorrow”. -Mary Anne Radmacher


Check your garden for plants that need to be trimmed and thinned.


Do you have anything in your current reality that you wish to alter?


I choose to feel increasingly comfortable with my surrounds.

More inspired self improvement every day!

It’s difficult to be inspired if you’re stuck in a negative state. Inspiration is not just a flash of vision, it’s a motivation that births creativity.

People who get inspired are usually the ones more eager to jump into a project and stick with it. Inspired people have greater confidence not to doubt themselves.

Every day, seek out personal moments of clarity, increasing your awareness of new possibilities that surround you. The following tools will help.

About Forward Steps Notes

In the words of Oliver Wendell Holmes…

“One’s mind, once stretched by a new idea, never regains its original dimensions”.

One favorite saying at my desk, is…

That’s one of many reasons that I love to share positive content. Forward Steps is for adding wings to our unique life journey!

Sometimes, you’ll find me recommending or presenting the same product(s) more than one time.

When repeating a training or using a tool that I’ve used or come across before, often I’ll “see” something brand new or have a fresh insight/perspective, that I might not have picked up on earlier. In that moment, perhaps I am finally “ready” to REALLY hear and receive its message or lesson.

It is not unlike seeing a movie for the second time and realizing that I’d not remembered seeing a particular scene, from the first viewing. As Nelson Mandela once said…

“There is nothing like returning to a place that remains unchanged to find the ways in which you yourself have altered.”

When you see something that has already been presented to you once before, then I invite you to revisit it anyhow.

Give up any judgement about whether it is “good” or “bad”. It JUST IS and you are alive, so you’re in luck. You get to choose, again!

I love these words from Gelett Burgess…

“If in the last few years you haven’t discarded a major opinion or acquired a new one, check your pulse. You may be dead.”

Tens of thousands of people, from many countries & backgrounds, receive Forward Steps emails. Everyone is at different stages of their life journey, everyone is looking for different things and experiencing different things.

Some of us learn best by hearing, others are more visual and yet others love to gather information by reading. This makes for a phenomenal challenge, in satisfying everybody’s individual needs and preferences. Even should we assume “that nothing is impossible” – this challenge gives an awfully good impression of “impossible”!

We are all different. Seldom one solution fits all. I provide a vast array of resources (hundreds, in fact) to cater for a multi-dimensional audience and I always recommend you remember this quote…

Absorb what is useful, discard what is not and add what is uniquely your own. -Bruce Lee Share on X
