A Nerd with an Edge: Lao Tzu Meets Hollywood

For a quick, fun read that combines Lao Tzu, the Kabbalah and Hollywood, check out Ken Goldstein’s Way of the Nerd.  He’s got pithy insights:

* If things are coming your way, you’re on the right path. If things aren’t, you are probably toxic.

* If you don’t like the ‘movie’ of your life, walk out.

* Why think you have to be committed to any part of you that isn’t working for you?

* Go for things you want. You’ll either get lucky or end up wiser.

And it’s a neat story about his own successes, and how he navigated the bumps on the road thereto.  Not to mention a cool Bon Jovi story.

Hell, he’s even got a workshop coming up next week, The Day of the Nerd.  I’m thinking that if I had the time and was in CA, I’d check it out.  It sounds like a lot of fun and a painless day of introspection and growth.

It’s now or never…
It’s My Life, Bon Jovi
