Celebrity threes

Why do famous people die in threes?

I don't mean to be callous here, but I find this phenomenon fascinating. Whenever someone dies, someone famous enough to have his or her death noted on the front page of the paper, two more such people will die within a few days to a week.

Reggie White (December 26) : "a fearsome defensive end for the Philadelphia Eagles and Green Bay Packers who was one of the great players in NFL history."

Susan Sontag (December 28): "the author, activist and self-defined 'zealot of seriousness' whose voracious mind and provocative prose made her a leading intellectual of the past half century."

Jerry Orbach (December 29): stage and film star "best known for his long-running role as New York police detective Lennie Briscoe on Law & Order."

My rational side objects that this must be some sort of false consciousness -- that famous people die all the time, and the mind just groups them into threes as a funny way of imposing order on the world. But no -- I swear, they really do die in threes.

I won't go so far as to say that there is some cosmic connection within any given celebrity three. Though Susan Sontag might be able to discern some sort of subtext. If there was foul play connecting these three deaths, Lennie Briscoe might be able to piece it together but, ironically ...

A couple of years ago I thought about creating a web site documenting celebrity threes. Now it occurs to me, "Hey, I have this blog!" I now make this vow to you: so long as I continue to blog, I will post all celebrity threes that come to my attention. I really want to get to the bottom of this.

I was going to leave a little tip on New Years Resolutions and how to make the best of them.

Unfortunately, I would not be able to keep it brief.

Goal setting takes effort and you really have to know how to do it to do it well. Especially the follow-up.

That's why I've included a lot of FREE goal setting information on my website, to help folks like you be more successful.

In fact, you can start now, and get a head start on the new year - and the rest of your life.

Think goal setting isn't important? Spend a little time at stating goals and you'll change your mind.

Have a GREAT day!
 
Have you done anything earth shattering lately?

Read anything that really sets your mind on fire with a passion to do good?

How about doing something important for yourself?

Have you?

Do you know without a doubt where life is taking you?

Got a Plan?

Know how to get there?

Most people don't. They just go through life hoping for the best. How can you possibly reach your dreams if you don't have a real plan?

A new year is coming. It's time to start thinking about your New Years Resolution and really start planning your life don't you think. Follow through on some of those old goals you had years ago.

Even people in the goal setting business tend not to visit their "life plan" very often.

Are you one of those?

Need a little refresher and some FREE goal setting tips?

Spend a few minutes at long term goals and take away life changing information.

Happy New Year!
 
After a good read on blogs like this I like to leave little tips on goal setting. You know, the things you used to dream of when you were young, or even now.

A lot of research has shown that only those who set goals are likely to achieve their dreams.

When is the last time you really sat down and wrote a few short term and long term goals down?

What? It's been that long!

A new year is coming. You could do the same things you did this year and achieve the same results you did with your life dreams last year, or you could visit reaching goals and read all the FREE information on setting goals and getting what you want out of life

OR

you could just piddle on through life hoping for the best, like most people do.

Which will it be?

You really can have a lot more of everything than you do now. All you gotta do is know what you want and have a plan.

Have a GREAT New Year!
