“The positive thinker sees the invisible, feels the intangible, achieves the impossible.” ~ Unknown
Sunday, February 25, 1973. I remember a note I wrote to myself that day back when I was in college. It said, “Finish reading Notes to Myself by Friday for psychology class.” The note was not kept in a cell phone, palm pilot or any other kind of digital device. It was written on a big paper calendar hanging on the wall in my dorm room.
The last sentence of Friday’s blog writing called Keeper of the Keys, stirred that memory. Scroll down to Friday’s blog if you have not read it or follow this link if you missed it.http://bit.ly/UXoiY9
In 1973, as a sophomore in college, the world was becoming my oyster. Full of wisdom, optimistic, I’d made it through my freshman year, with good grades.If I am not mistaken, I may have been on the Deans List.
Notes to Myself, a curriculum-required book for my psychology class helped me make an important decision. I thought, “If being a psychology major meant reading other meaningful books like that, I was up for the task.” I hung on the words of Hugh Prather, the author of Notes to Myself, along with the thoughts of Maxwell Maltz, M.D, the author of Psychocybernetics. Psych students, at that time, flung around words like psychoanalysis, existentialism and transcendental meditation.
Somewhere in my moves from apartment to apartment after college, my two bibles of thought were discarded. Since then they have been replaced by other personal development books introducing me to new ideas about this thing called personal fulfillment (or the art of living.)
Today, I’ve made a note to myself, in my hand-held digital device, to re-read Prather and Maltz’s books. This time, in electronic format (e-book versions) on a digital reader. Both have updated book covers!
