An hour of your time

If you want to know what it’s like to experience a first rate lecture, but not feel like you’re being lectured, watch this video.

If you want a good reason to be motivated and do just one more thing to improve your life or someone else’s life, watch this video.

If you remember that there are 24 hours in every day and you probably didn’t do much in any one of them today that you’d be proud to tell someone else about or perhaps you didn’t experience something that you will one day have a fond memory of, watch this video.

If you want to feel a little less sad for yourself and a little more happy that not everyone out there is a !@#&*^~, watch this video.

It has nothing to do with dogs, or wars, or me being overly self righteous and smug. That should be reason enough.

Take an hour and watch this video:
