  • Confidence in Your Business

    18 Apr 2014 | 7:31 am
    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

    zenhabits
    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…
  • On Making It Through Tough Journeys

    14 Apr 2014 | 9:25 am
    By Leo Babauta A reader wrote to me about a very tough journey he and his wife are setting out upon, and asked for some words of advice or motivation though this tough time. 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…
  • The Hard Stuff Often Matters Most

    zenhabits
    10 Apr 2014 | 9:00 am
    By Leo Babauta I’ve tried a lot of types of exercise, but by far the most effective exercise in terms of results for time spent is heavy barbell lifts. For 10-15 minutes of lifting a barbell laden with weights, I get a better physique, improved health, more strength and muscle, less bodyfat. I’ve spent hours running, doing bodyweight exercises, doing Crossfit, playing sports, biking, swimming, and generally doing the craziest kinds of exercises possible. They’re all very good, but for the time that I’ve invested in them, weights are the ones that matter most.
  • What to Think About During Exercise

    zenhabits
    8 Apr 2014 | 8:23 am
    By Leo Babauta A reader wrote to me and said he gets bored during running, which makes him want to just stop running. And so he asked for suggestions for what to think about while running or exercising in general. Such a great question: if you’re bored, why would you want to do it? Why not read fun stuff on the Internet instead? Well, other than the fantastic health benefits, exercise is a wonderful time to think, to practice mindfulness, to socialize, to escape distraction. A little background about my qualifications: when I started running in 2005, I could barely run 5 minutes and was…

  • 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…
  • Maundy Thursday

    18 Apr 2014 | 2:40 pm
    It is Saturday here on Guam. We observed Good Friday yesterday at home. I had some good quiet time for reflection. Thursday night we observed Maundy Thursday at the Lutheran Church of Guam with our friends there. They put on a drama of the Last Supper. In the play each disciple reflected on his relationship with Jesus and considered the question, “Is it I?” who would betray Jesus. As we took communion after the drama I found myself meditating on my relationship with Christ and how I have the capability within me to be a betrayer as well. That Jesus reached out to his enemies as they…

  • Tuesday Chapel

    16 Apr 2014 | 2:58 pm
    For Tuesday’s chapel we continued our Holy Week meditation as we read dramatically through Matthew. Of course we did not read chapter 28 – the celebration of Easter is saved for Sunday. Again I found it a powerful thing to read the words of the Gospel aloud and experience them again in that venue. Mike read the narration, Samantha did the miscellaneous voices, Scott Refilong read the words of the disciples and I read Jesus’ words. I would urge you to try this. It really is a different experience to hear the spoken words of scripture in this way. The pictures were all taken by Titus,…

    13 Apr 2014 | 2:17 pm
    Tuesday’s Chapel had two speakers. PIU’s Dean of Students Sarah Brubaker and Nicky Ballard from the Southern Baptist Mission Team from Reno Nevada. The mission team included 4 members and were here on Guam all week to work with the PIU students doing evangelism in the village of Umatac and to find out more about PIU. Nicky shared some insights from the Lord’s Prayer in Matthew. Sarah talked a little bit about what happened in Umatac and challenged the students with continued need to pray and go out to the unreached people of the world. It is real challenge coming from Sarah, because she…

    NO REST FOR THE AWAKE - MINAGAHET CHAMORRO

  • 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…
  • Mes Chamoru

    17 Apr 2014 | 6:38 am
    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…

  • You Joined the Military to See the World...

    12 Apr 2014 | 6:22 am
    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…
  • Ode to Grandma

    11 Apr 2014 | 5:59 am
    --> English is my mother tongue, in the sense that it is the language that I grew up with and speak most comfortably. It is my first language. It is however not my favorite language, not the best language and certainly not i mas takhilo' para Guahu. I am a non-native speaker of the Chamorro language as I learned to speak it when I was 20 years old. It is natural for me in some ways, but still unnatural in others, primarily when talking about things that are difficult in general to express in a Chamorro lexicon. This is not only something that I struggle with, but as the Chamorro language…
