Pano from the summit of Strawberry Peak.
I want you to do something for me. Go to the library and check out a book that you have been wanting to read.
I want you to read that book, word by word. I want you to analyze every word. Is it spelled correctly, is it used correctly when applied to grammar rules? When you find a word that is not the perfect word it should be, I want you to stop reading the book.
I want you to take that word, look it up online, talk to friends about it. Write letters to the publisher about why that word is not correct. If needed, show this word to your teaches, perhaps go to a local college, and discuss it with a professor.
When you are satisfied that you have done all you can with that word, read the next word. Keep looking for those incorrect words.
Read that book, word by word. Treat each word as suspect, and treat it accordingly. Do not read chapters, or paragraphs, or even lines…read word by word.
It will probably take a few years, but you will finally reach the end of this book.
Now tell me, was the book any good? Probably not.
We can find fault in everything. What appears perfect to me, you may see fault. What you see as perfect, I may analyze and disagree with you.
The same principle applies to life. Don’t analyze every minute of every day. Let yourself enjoy life, and don’t worry about the little day by day issues.
Live your life like a good book that keeps you captivated.
