“10 Rules for Being Human” (from If Life Is a Game, These Are the Rules), Cherie Carter-Scott
I don’t think I would have ever written down this list in my literary journal 20 years ago if it hadn’t been for No. 10. Priceless. Like, toooootally MasterCard priceless.
There’s really no rhyme or reason to my selection for the Quote of the Day. Each one just kind of comes to me no differently than cosmic dust filtering in from the farthest reaches of the “Chocoalte Bar” Galaxy, penetrating our now ozone-less atmosphere, and then connecting with my uber sensitive-to-the-universe brain. That’s what happened this morning after I’d finished my 200th sit-up and was getting ready to do 100 chin-ups before getting started on my daily half-triathalon. Wednesdays are full-out triathalons.
Man, I love fitness!
I don’t know much about Dr. Cherie Carter-Scott (@DrCherie) except (1) I can’t cut and paste the accent aigu over the first “e” in her name; (2) she is known as the “Mother of Coaching” (anyone know who the Father is? Could it be Vader?); (3) she has been a self-dubbed “pioneer in the field of Human Development and Motivation since 1974,” the year the world stood still on June 19; and (4) I really liked the above “10 Rules for Being Human,” and have ever since I came across it for the first time in 1997, the year the world stood still once again on August 31 and September 5.
