Section 2, part 2 (1) Alyson M. in CO: Can you spread the need for a little help in Asheville? I bet there is a perfect companion in your network for this old guy!
(2) Linda in NY: I drive a 1994 Geo Metro and I’ve been looking for window wiper arms for my car, and I have been going nuts looking for them for months. No one seems to have them. Response: I told her to not drive in the rain. But seriously, if anybody has any ideas on how to find the above, please share them with me–and I’ll then share them with Linda. She has already checked eBay.
(3) Marty S. in PA: As I was walking in towards Penn this morning (through a very light snow), I noticed a pencil on the ground as I approached the elevator. For some reason I picked it up. Sure enough, it was an old looking Blaine Greenfield “Retirement in Training” pencil, a little the worse for wear but when sharpened will fill the bill. The Blaine Greenfield saga continues at BCCC.

Section 4, Reviews
* My wife and I experienced the effects of crab mentality firsthand. With the success of my first book, THE CHRISTMAS BOX, our world changed in some negative ways that we did not expect. Friends stopped talking to us, family stopped visiting, false rumors were spread through our neighborhood about us. It was difficult time, one that required a lot of forgiving.
When I told my father about what was happening to us, he wisely replied, “You have to understand that your success will always reminds others of their failures.”
* Were did we learn that failure was successful? Thomas J. Watson, the chairman and CEO of IBM, said, “Would you like me to give you a formula for success? It’s quite simple, really. Double your rate of failure. You are thinking of failure as the enemy of success. Bit it isn’t at all. You can be discouraged by failure–or you can learn from it. So go ahead and make mistakes. Make all you can. Because, remember, that’s where you will find success.”
Along the way, Evans also included some great ideas on how to live your life; for example:
* The “what if” exercise is a useful device in creating real-life stories as well. Making your own list of “what ifs” is a powerful way to begin to alter your mental map to magnify your life.
What if I went back to school and studied art history?
What if I changed my sedentary lifestyle and became a competitive cyclist?
What if I wrote that book I’ve always dreamed about? What if it became a bestseller?
THE FOUR DOORS now has me thinking about a similar type question; specifically, what if I read another book by the author? I’m looking forward to that possibility!
She returns to her hometown in Charleston where she encounters, among others, her chiddhood love, her strong-willed mother and her much more responsible brother.
The story held my interest, as did the finely-drawn characters. An added plus was the mystery storyline that didn’t together until shortly before the end of the book.
In addition, Zackman’s narration was excellent.

(4) Rewriting History: Book & Print Arts Collective Member’s Show, opens March 7
REWRITING HISTORY explores the theme of shifting identity and plays with perceptions of our collective public and private histories. Members from Asheville’s Book & Print Arts Collective have created a variety of artist books and prints to explore and ask what it means to rewrite history. Themes of love, family, science, and myth are all expressed through the artist books and prints featured in the show. Michelle Francis’ book took inspiration from a 1904 correspondence between a woman and her former beau. Gwen Diehn’s small monotypes depict a cat rewriting a stressful morning by rolling freely and luxuriously on the pavement. Diehn, plus other members will give a short talk about their works during the opening.
The work will be on display at BookWorks from March 7–May 24, 2014. Opening Reception: March 7, from 6-9 p.m.

(1) DON’T MISS THIS SPECIAL NIGHT OF MUSIC WITH BUCKS COUNTY’S OWN JAZZ STAR
(1) You may know that we are very selective about what we send
you and the kind of opportunities and people we introduce
That said, this really is a “once in a lifetime” kind of
opportunity . . . we were amazed when we received advance
Our colleague Ken Wilber, who we think just might be the
smartest living human, is doing a live online event to teach
how to become the “superhuman” version of yourself.
If you don’t know who Ken is, let us give you the
quick intro – before sending you to sign up for his free
Ken wrote a book called “The Spectrum Of Consciousness”
when he was 23 years old! And it’s an incredible book
that changed the field of developmental psychology.
Since then, he has written dozens of books about the
intersection of psychology, spirituality, philosophy and
human potential and evolution.
We’ve learned some of the most important mental
models and “perspectiving” tools that we know from Ken. We
use these tools constantly in our teaching, marketing and
business. We have used his books as texts in our high end
six month program, The Accelerated Personal Evolution
We could rave about Ken for hours, but for now, we’ll
just say that if you want to learn the most comprehensive
and usable map for your own development and self-
actualization, then click here to LISTEN TO KEN or:
Here’s the opportunity: Ken is doing an online event
called “Your Superhuman Potential” – and we’ve got a
link where you can attend for free. No strings.
Inside, Ken will show you some of the most interesting
“maps” of consciousness and development that exist. And
he’ll show you how to realize your own potential.
It’s on March 20th at 9 PM Eastern / 6 PM Pacific.
You can register to attend here as a guest:
This is the first time we’ve seen Ken do something
like this, and because he’s a colleague, we were
given an advance heads up about this event so we can give
you the very first access to register for it.
Go and sign up for Ken’s “Your Superhuman Potential”
event on March 20th. This guy is a real game-changer!
