The way to love someone
is to lightly run your finger over that person's soul
until you find a crack,
and then gently pour your love into that crack.

Water Logue … an app … how cool is that?!

it seems that I have spent my "goofing off" time (aka blog time) acquiring and fiddling around with the very cool Water Logue app.  Fun.  (smile)

So, just a couple of very quick notes … I have tons to do today!

below notes taken from here … Gretchen Rubin's (Happiness Project) notes : (my notes from her notes…happened upon because I learning about "habits" and she is developing a book on habits)

Upholders respond to both inner and outer rules; Questioners question all rules, but can follow rules they endorse (effectively making all rules into inner rules); Rebels resist all rules;Obligers respond to outer rules but not to inner rules. To read more, go here. ...
One important question is: what is the main desire or motivation driving the people in the four categories? Here’s what I currently believe. Does it ring true to you?
Upholders wake up and think, “What’s on the schedule and the to-do list for today?”They’re very motivated by execution, getting things accomplished. They really don’t like making mistakes, getting blamed,  or failing to follow through (including doing so to themselves).
Questioners wake up and think, “What needs to get done today?” They’re very motivated by seeing good reasons for a particular course of action. They really don’t like spending time and effort on activities they don’t agree with.
Rebels wake up and think, “What do I want to do today?” They’re very motivated by a sense of freedom, of self-determination. (I used to think that Rebels were energizing by flouting rules, but I now I suspect that that’s a by-product of their desire to determine their own course of action. Though they do seem to enjoy flouting rules.) They really don’t like being told what to do.
Obligers wake up and think, “What must I do today?” They’re very motivated by accountability. They really don’t like being reprimanded or letting others down.
Understanding this is important, because if you want to motivate yourself (or someone else) to do something, it’s key to know how a person will consider and act upon that request or order.
Too bad the book isn't already out.  I think I'll like it.  I don't like the process very much, Here's what I mean … I subscribed to The Happiness Project blog (via e-mail) when I discovered that Ms. Rubin is researching and publishing her notes on the topic of habits.  It feels like an advance advertising campaign wrapped around one tiny idea, or the development of one tiny idea, each day … Does that ring true for you ? … maybe it's presented as an opportunity to collaborate during her process.  I do like what she thinks about … happiness, what's not to like?  I'd rather just read the book … the circus part is annoying (for me).
Today is about getting ready to enjoy this … One's project!
Gotta get to it … .
right after this: the paradoxes of the Heap and the Bald Man …  .
