Why enjoying yourself can never be a waste of time


Enjoying yourselfTime you enjoyed wasting, was not wasted. ~John Lennon

Regular readers of this blog will know that I am a great believer in making the most of your time.

In particular, a constant message is that you should not waste your time. However, as with everything, it is important to strike a balance.

As John Lennon reminds us in his observation above, truly enjoying yourself can never be a waste of time.

Enjoying yourself and having fun has positive benefits for your health.

For a start, it reduces stress. Also what would be the point of life if you couldn’t have a little fun occasionally?

Remember the words in that old Music Hall song, “Enjoy yourself, it’s later than you think. Enjoy yourself while you’re still in the pink.”

You can’t be serious all the time. Sometimes you’ve just got to have some fun. So go on. You know you want to.

15 Quotes by Whoopi Goldberg

Quotes by Whoopi GoldbergBorn Caryn Elaine Johnson, Whoopi Goldberg is a leading American actor, comedian, author, and television host.

She’s been one of America’s leading stars for over 30 years and has been nominated for 13 Emmy Awards for her work in television.

She’s also one of the few entertainers to have won an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar and a Tony Award.

Whoopi Goldberg was the second black woman in the history of the Academy Awards to win an acting Oscar.

By any measure she’s been successful and it’s always worth listening to successful people.

So here are 15 quotes by Whoopi Goldberg which I think are interesting.

Quotes by Whoopi Goldberg:

  1. Sometimes experience trumps assumption. ~Whoopi Goldberg
  2. I am where I am because I believe in all possibilities. ~Whoopi Goldberg
  3. It never occurs to me that there are things I can’t do. ~Whoopi Goldberg
  4. If you don’t look out for others, who will look out for you? ~Whoopi Goldberg
  5. Everything for me is visual. That’s just how my head works. ~Whoopi Goldberg
  6. Normal is nothing more than a cycle on a washing machine. ~Whoopi Goldberg
  7. You have to believe in yourself in spite of what other people believe. ~Whoopi Goldberg
  8. I don’t think in terms of failure. I don’t feel like anyone outside of me should be setting limitations. People should be encouraged to shoot for the moon. ~Whoopi Goldberg
  9. I don’t believe that there is any good career move or bad career move. I believe there are only the things that make me happy. ~Whoopi Goldberg
  10. If you can handle the fact that people are going to be mad at you when you do what you think is right, you’ll be alright. ~Whoopi Goldberg
  11. I’ve learned to take time for myself and to treat myself with a great deal of love and respect, because I like me. I think I’m kind of cool. ~Whoopi Goldberg
  12. I am the American Dream. I am the epitome of what the American Dream basically said. It said you could come from anywhere and be anything you want in this country. That’s exactly what I’ve done. ~Whoopi Goldberg
  13. Most of all, I dislike this idea nowadays that if you’re a black person in America, then you must be called African-American. Listen, I’ve visited Africa and I’ve got news for everyone: I’m not an African. ~Whoopi Goldberg
  14. I fear waking up one morning and finding out my life was all for nothing. We’re here for a reason. I believe a bit of the reason is to throw little torches out to lead people through the dark. When you’re kind to someone in trouble, you hope they remember and are kind to someone else and so on. Soon it will be like a wildfire. ~Whoopi Goldberg
  15. When I was a kid they didn’t call it dyslexia. They called it you know, you were slow, or you were retarded, or whatever. What you can never change is the effect that the words ‘dumb’ and ‘stupid’ have on young people. I knew I wasn’t stupid, and I knew I wasn’t dumb. My mother told me that. If you read to me, I could tell you everything that you read. They didn’t know what it was. They knew I wasn’t lazy, but what was it? ~Whoopi Goldberg

15 Quotes by Bob Newhart

Quotes by Bob NewhartThere are many fine comedians and many of the finest are American in my opinion.

And I think one of the funniest American comedians of all time is Bob Newhart. He’s certainly made me laugh out loud, many times.

Many years ago I was fortunate enough to stumble upon his audio recording the Button-Down Mind of Bob Newhart and from that moment on I was absolutely hooked.

This album was one of the funniest things I’ve ever heard.

Imagine my situation, I’m sitting in my car waiting for the traffic lights to turn green. Suddenly on my car radio they play the Tobacco sketch from that album. It was so funny it had me laughing so much that people around me were starting to stare at me as if I’d gone mad. It really was that funny.

If you’re unfamiliar with Bob Newhart’s work then I recommend you check him out. And a good place to start would be Button-Down Mind of Bob Newhart. It’s still available on Amazon.

However before you check it out, here are 15 quotes by Bob Newhart, some of which reflect his humor, some reflect his sense of the absurd and some are just thought-provoking.

Quotes by Bob Newhart:

  1. The only way to survive is to have a sense of humor. ~Bob Newhart
  2. Don’t be silly and don’t waste your time. ~Bob Newhart
  3. Don’t live in the past. There’s no point. You can’t change anything. What a waste of time. ~Bob Newhart
  4. I don’t like country music but I don’t mean to denigrate those who do. And for the people who like country music, denigrate means ‘put down’. ~Bob Newhart
  5. People are meant to be in certain places, and I think I’m meant to be on a sound stage doing situation comedy. ~Bob Newhart
  6. The best advice I was probably given and the best advice I could give someone who is trying to get into the comedy field is to take advantage of every opportunity you have to work to hone your skills. ~Bob Newhart
  7. Comedians are innately programmed to pick up oddities like mispronounced words, upside-down books on a shelf, and generally undetectable mistakes in everyday life. ~Bob Newhart
  8. I don’t know how doctors pick one specialty over another. Some you can understand. Paediatricians or gynaecologists delivering babies, bringing a new life into the world, but how does someone want to be a proctologist? How can you fall in love with proctology? ~Bob Newhart
  9. With the advent of cell phones, especially with the very small microphone that attach to the cell phone itself, it’s getting harder and harder I find, to differentiate between schizophrenics and people talking on a cell phone. ~Bob Newhart
  10. I think one reason for a successful marriage is laughter. I think laughter gets you through the rough moments in a marriage. ~Bob Newhart
  11. All comedians are, in a way, anarchists. Our job is to make fun of the existing world. ~Bob Newhart
  12. Laughter gives us distance. It allows us to step back from an event, deal with it and then move on. ~Bob Newhart
  13. Probably the best advice I ever got in my life was from the head of the accounting department, Mr. Hutchinson, at the Glidden Company in Chicago, and he told me, ‘You really aren’t cut out for accounting.’ ~Bob Newhart
  14. I just made the decision that I was going to try comedy, and if didn’t work, then I knew it didn’t work. Then I would go back and do whatever. But at least I wouldn’t torture myself the rest of my life, wondering whatever would have happened. ~Bob Newhart
  15. All I can say about life is, ‘Oh God, enjoy it!’ ~Bob Newhart

If you’re not familiar with Bob Newhart’s work then I  can strongly recommend you listen to the Button-Down Mind of Bob Newhart. I can also recommend The Button-Down Mind Strikes Back!

These audio recordings are  both funny and well worth your time. Well worth buying your own copies too. I think so anyway.

Please share this post with your friends:

If that is the case then please share them with your friends because when you share everyone wins.

21 funny quotes about age certain to amuse you

Funny Quotes About AgeDoes getting older bother you dear reader?

If you’re like me then it might just bother you a little bit.

The years go by so quickly, don’t they? Life goes by in the blink of an eye.

We all want to make the most of our time of course. However life usually gets in the way.

When we’re young, we have time and energy but no money and few skills.

As we get older, we have the demands of work and family eating up the time we have. And whilst we have some money, it mostly goes on paying bills.

Then in old age we have money if we’ve been lucky and we have fewer demands on our time but we have no energy and our bodies start to let us down.

Life can be like a cruel joke at times. However done right, life can be fun too. Well I think so anyway.

Live life whilst you can and don’t put anything off until someday because someday never comes. If you want to do it, do it now.

15 Quotes to inspire you to Think Bigger

Quotes to inspire you to think biggerIf you’re thinking anyway then you might as well think big, or so the saying goes.

Far too many people underestimate their ability; what they can do; and what they can achieve.

If you want to make your mark on this world then you’ll need to think big. You’ll need to make a difference. You’ll need to stand out head and shoulders above the crowd.

That can be a lonely place to be, of course. However the rewards can be extraordinary.

Rewards can be in terms of recognition but they can also be financial too. And let’s not forget that such rewards have the potential to include your place in history.

Does that sound a little too dramatic?

Well other people leave their mark on history, so why not you?

Too many people fear trying in case they fail. However there is no such thing as failure, just opportunities to learn, to hone your skills and then have another go with a better understanding of what will and won’t work.

You must believe in yourself dear reader. Self-belief is an essential ingredient for success. Others don’t need to believe in you but you must feel you have whatever it takes to do it, whatever it is.

You’re as good as anyone and, if you dig deep, you’ve got what it takes.

Here are 15 quotes to inspire you to Think Bigger.

  4. That’s precisely the question everyone should be asking, why the hell not? Why not you? Why not now? ~Timothy Ferriss
  5. The quality of a person’s life is in direct proportion to their commitment to excellence, regardless of their chosen field of endeavor. ~Vince Lombardi
  6. It takes courage to grow up and turn out to be who you really are. ~E.E. Cummings

Why passion is the key to success

Why passion is the key to successIf success is your aim then received wisdom suggests that you should find your passion. You’ve heard that before dear reader I’m sure. However the phrase is now spoken so often that it’s has become a bit of a cliché, don’t you think?

And of course once something becomes a cliché then it’s hard to take it seriously, would you agree?

Then again, just because something has become a cliché doesn’t in itself mean that it lacks an underlying truth.

From experience I can tell you that if you really want to succeed at anything then whatever it is must matter to you. And I’m not talking about mattering just a little bit. I mean it really, really, really must matter to you. It must be as important to you as the air that you breathe.

You can call it a ‘passion’; you can call it something with which you have ‘a sense of connection’; or you can call it your ‘Why’. Whatever you call it, you’ll only have the determination to see it through as far as it goes if it actually matters to you.

How lucky are those people who find something in life that matters so much that it drives them to make their mark. To be recognised for making a significant contribution to their chosen pursuit.

That pursuit may be painting or writing or playing a musical instrument. It may be computers or fast cars. It may be starting a business and making serious money. Whatever it is, it’s that special something which for those people is not only interesting and absorbing but rewarding too.

It becomes so important to them that it would be their hobby if they couldn’t make a living at it. Because they love it so much, it’s not work at all, for them it’s a pleasure.

It’s something for which they have a sense of enthusiasm or ‘passion’ and instinctively they recognise that it’s what they’re good at. And of course, because they love it, they practise and keep practising. And because they practise they hone their skills and they get even better at it. This creates a virtuous circle.

Constant practise will help you excel and reach the very top of your game.

Sadly for most people, that special something is something they never find.

However, if you’ve yet to find that special something, you must never stop looking. One day you might just stumble upon it and it’s never too late for you to become the person you really could be.

That’s why passion is the key to success.

The importance of friends to our lives

FriendsFriends are the family you choose. ~Jess C. Scott

Were you a fan of that wonderful American, television sitcom Friends? Wouldn’t it have been great to share their company and all the fun they had in Central Perk?

For me that show highlighted the important role our friends play in our lives.

It is a fact that we don’t get to choose our relatives but the good news is that we do get to choose our friends.

Friends is a relationship of equals.

Friends are the people whose company we enjoy; people with whom we feel a real sense of connection and with whom we share common interests. They are also people we’d be willing to go out of our way to help if we thought they were in trouble.

Family and loyalty go together of course. You can’t really have one without the other. And a relative can be a friend too. As were Ross and Monica in Friends.

However just because you’re related to someone doesn’t mean you’ll like them or that they’ll like you. Being related is no guarantee you’ll enjoy their company.

Friends are different; friends are special.

If you have a small number of really close friends then you’re very lucky indeed.

Appreciate your friends because they’re the people that make life worth living. They’re the people that add a sparkle to a life that could otherwise be quite dull.

Let me know what you think:

Well I’ve given you my opinion but what about yours?

Do you have any experiences of friends, either the people you like to hang out with or the sitcom, that you’d like to share with other readers?

I’d love to hear from you so please leave a comment.

Friends the sitcom:

Friends the sitcom is still available on DVD of course should you want to re-live the memories of this peerless classic. You can check it out on Amazon if you CLICK HERE.

21 thought-provoking quotes about fake friends

Quotes about fake friendsHow often do you hear people say, “Oh, I have loads of friends?

For a very lucky few that may be true. However mostly it’s not true at all.

Almost always, real friends can be counted on the fingers of one hand with some fingers to spare.

For me a real friend is someone we could phone at 2am if we were in serious trouble and be absolutely confident that they would be straight out to help us in a heartbeat.

Everyone else is just people we know with varying degrees of familiarity.

Yes there will be a wider circle of people with whom we socialise occasionally but most of these people will be quick to distance themselves from us when they think we’re in real trouble.

Such people might be categorized as ‘fair weather friends‘ but some of them will be genuinely fake. There when it suits them but otherwise they care little for us at all.

So we have to learn to differentiate the real from the not so real when it comes to friends.

Here are 21 thought provoking quotes about fake friends to help you with that process.

Quotes about fake friendsQuotes about fake friends:

  1. You don’t lose when you lose fake friends. ~Joan Jett
