  • The Habit Action List

    23 Apr 2014 | 8:27 am
    By Leo Babauta There are a ton of people who read self-improvement blogs and books, but never but them into action. They engage in what’s sometimes called “self-improvement porn”. I’ve done this myself in the past — it was a form of fantasizing about how I was going to make my life better, get my shit together. But I didn’t take action because: I was too busy right that moment, so I’d bookmark the article for later. Later never comes. I didn’t have time for a new big project, and this change seemed too big. I didn’t really believe I could…

You’re reading, and there are a bunch of other tasks you want to do on your computer, yes … but there’s also your body. How does that feel? There’s the area around you, perhaps some people around you. There’s nature nearby. Take a pause to become aware of the actual reality of this particular moment. As we go through our day, we’re often stressed because of all the things we have to do, the things we’re…

    By Leo Babauta The urgent desire for a successful business, and the fear of losing business, drives many a good person to do sleazy things. I’m not talking about casino owners or pimps or politicians or corporations. I’m talking about good small business owners who become marketers. Let’s say you have a blog, and you write good stuff, and people like it. Now what? How do you build that into a business? Maybe you see people who’ve made millions online: How did they do it? Internet marketing. They built mailing lists, then manipulated those lists through emotional…
  • 10 Ways to Do What You Don’t Want to Do

    16 Apr 2014 | 8:31 am
    By Leo Babauta Life would be grand if we only did what our fleeting hearts wanted to do, each moment of the day. Unfortunately, the laundry, taxes and difficult conversations would never get done. The best books would never be written. All the achievements of humankind would be imagined, not realized. So what should we do if we’re facing a task we don’t want to do? Well, we can run, and find distraction. That usually works, until it causes problems. Or we can find a way to get crap done. Here’s how to get crap done. Meditate on why you need to do this. Instead of giving in…

Difficult times can be a test of our souls, and as such can be some of the most instructive times possible. It’s easy to be happy and motivated when things are going well. But what happens when they fall apart, or unexpected troubles come your way, or things go exactly as you don’t want them to? What do you do then? I’ll share some things I’ve been learning about personally, and give you a word of…

It was an incredible meal!And now we will further use the by-product of that meal in the garden. I washed the shells, dried them in the desert air, then easily ground them into a powder which I distributed between our compost bins.Now, I'm not young or idealistic so I really don't believe that I'm actually saving the planet by recycling a few egg shells. As a high school student in the 1970s I was active in the emerging environmental movement, participated…

    Yesterday was our annual “Earth Day” chapel. Our speaker was our “favorite chemist” and PIU faculty member Larry Bock. Larry’s chapels are always joyfully anticipated because he integrates science with theology in a creative and interesting way, and, he shows really cool pictures. This chapel did not disappoint. Larry shared from Psalm 148 and showed how our responsibility to the earth involves creation care and praise to the Creator for how intricate and beautiful He has made it. Larry and Sharon Bock have been volunteering at PIU for three years now and plan to move back to Texas…

Here are a few pictures of the day. We even got Titus to let us take some pictures with him in them. You can see how excited he is about that!     The day started off with Sunrise Service. On the left we line up to take communion. On the right my breakfast. Mmmm, the rice and potatoes were good. In the afternoon was the family gathering at our house.

  • This Week in the Psalms (29-54)

    20 Apr 2014 | 2:57 pm
    I have been working my way through the Psalms in my morning devotional reading. The commentary set I have been using does not have a volume on the Psalms (what!??). So I have been posting my own brief comments on each Psalm daily on my Facebook page. Sometimes the comment is a summary, other times it is just a thought that occurred to me as I read. One thing I noticed as I read, was that the Psalms of the Sons of Korah (42-49) work together. The early ones present the problem of the world being chaotic and that God’s promises seem to not be working. The later ones present the promise of…

  • Workin’ at the Carwash–PIU Style

    19 Apr 2014 | 1:23 am
    On Guam probably the most popular way to raise money for an organization is to have a car wash. It is a good way to help people out and it contributes to a cleaner island. Today was the PIU senior class car wash to raise money for their activities. I took my little red 49er-mobile down to get clean and spend some time with the students. Thanks to the Lutheran Church of Guam for letting us use their parking lot. I enjoyed being there with my grandkids and they enjoyed the ice cream cones afterward. The kids enjoyed some sand box time in the church playground. Senior class rep Esme took care of…

  • Please Sink My Battleship

    18 Apr 2014 | 7:51 pm
    The movie Battleship is critically reviled and if I were a critic of film I would definitely join the party in hating it. It is a children's game that was blown up Jerry Bruckheimer style into a massive, special-effects laden, clunky, chunky and funky action flick. It lacks any delicate touches or even nuances, unless of course you count slow motion shots of epic faced characters with over-saturated color as a nuance. The story itself should be familiar. Aliens attack the world and they are fought off. One unique aspect of the film is that it takes place in Hawai'i, usually known as a setting…

    During the month of March, my phone rings more than usual. It is Chamorro Month, and so every government agency, school, organization and most businesses look for some way to honor this month and display their support for Chamorro language and culture. Considering how Chamorro culture was stripped of much of its value after World War II because of a rush to Americanize; the renewed interest in protecting and promoting Chamorro culture is a very good thing. When I ask my students at UOG, what their culture is, or what their cultures are, I always receive interesting responses. For some…

    One thing that I often try to impress upon people, especially those who want to become activists and get involved in struggles in Guam against things such as militarization or in favor of things such as decolonization, is the importance of understanding the nature of your fight and what you are up against. One of the key advantages to considering social movements in war terms is that it helps you understand better that feeling right or being right has close to no effect on whether or not you win your battles. The only way in which that feeling of righteousness would carry any significance is…
