Dont Ask Your Doctor
Perhaps I should ask my doctor if there is a drug to take to combat frustration from seeing so many drug ads. You know the ones I'm talking about. They always start out with a list of questions. Then they tell you that a new drug might be just the thing for you--all you have to do is ask your doctor.
Here's my tongue-in-cheek riff on those ubiquitous ads.
Have you ever felt you had too little time for your many interests?
Do you find it difficult to decide which section of the bookstore to browse?
Is it hard for you to answer the question, "What do you do?"?
You may be suffering from Multiple Interest Disorder.
There is help for those suffering from Multiple Interest Disorder. New ideas make it possible to live a meaningful life despite the inability to hold the same job for 25 years.
There are support groups for those suffering from Multiple Interest Disorder. You can find them at most community colleges, libraries, artist cooperatives, bookstores, and coffee shops near you. It's important for you to know that, wherever you are, there are other individuals coping with their limitless approach to life.
In addition, you should know that many successful individuals have suffered just as you are now. Leonardo da Vinci found it impossible to choose between science and art. Albert Einstein was unable to find satisfaction as a student. Orville and Wilbur Wright were incapable of sticking to running their bicycle shop.
If you're suffering from Multiple Interest Disorder, you may have several of the following symptoms:
Don't ask your doctor if a limited life is right for you. Your lack of mindlessness may have become apparent to yourself or others. It may be too late to avoid recognizing your potential and engaging in your own process of maximizing your intellect, talent, and compassion.
Millions of people around the world are suffering from Multiple Interest Disorder. They are incapable of sticking to predictable options. They are choosing to wallow in their opportunities for excellence and fulfillment.
If you think you may be suffering from Multiple Interest Disorder, ask yourself if a life of limitations is right for you. Pursuing a long-term course of multiple passions may result in fascinating conversations, stimulating relationships, and an extra long obituary. Those pursuing a path of many twists and turns may develop excessive curiosity and energy.
SIDE EFFECTS: Those engaging in a life of limitless opportunities may experience spontaneous woos--contagious and energizing expressions of irrepressible joy. To avoid mindlessness, refrain from mediocrity and repetitive thought patterns. In the event of unrestrained enthusiasm and discovery, deep and lasting satisfaction may be the only prognosis. Don't ask your doctor for more information.

Flaming Fire Within Our Bones
Jeremiah was certainly one of the most distinguished notables of the Old Testament. To read his messages and experiences is to become acquainted with a great servant of God. I believe he revealed more of his inner feelings and personal reactions toward God and man, than did any other prophet or prophetess in Old Testament times. He was a young man of approximately 21 years of age when he accepted his divine calling to minister to the nations.

The Nazis stormed into the house of Stanislavsky Lech, who was Jewish, herded the entire family out at gunpoint, packed them into an overcrowded train, filled with the stench of death and despair, and sent them to Krakow.

Showing Your Appreciation - How To Make Others Feel Special
"There are fine things which you mean to do someday, under what you think will be more favorable circumstances. But the only time that is surely yours is the present, hence this is the time to speak the word of appreciation and sympathy, to do the generous deed - to sacrifice self a little more for others."

Computers and Internet: Inspiring Us to Create
The Internet is sometimes criticized (usually by parents who think their kids need to be outdoors more often) as leading people to be sitting in front of their computers all day growing bulbous, lethargic and (depending on who you talk to) stupid. I think that the opposite can often be true. My friends and I have recently been inspired to new creative ventures through the time spent online.

Dont Let The Door Hit You Where The Good Lord Split You!
I knew precisely what I wanted. I felt that success was only inches away. The excitement in my body was beginning to feel like electricity surging through my veins.

There Must Be A Way Out!
He was pushing a cart containing crates of soft drinks and followed closely by his two little boys when their momentum was halted. Noticing the situation, I ? who was on my way to see my printer's - stopped to see what would happen next. Before them stood this mud-filled pothole spanning the entire breadth of the road, providing, apparently, "a-no-way-out" situation for this bunch. His little boys turned to him with an anxious look that read; "Now we're stuck".

The Fuel for Creative Vigor
Writing a book or creating a killer headline requires a special blend of imagination, inspiration, and knowledge. Whether the ordeal is like enduring a root canal or soaring on a cloud, depends on how upbeat you are. The fuel of creative vigor is enthusiasm.
Don?t Give Up!
Don't let anyone kid you. The road to self improvement and personal growth is not a short, straight, well-marked, paved highway. Looking back on my journey, I see a road meandering over hills and through valleys, around sharp curves and over muddy trails, with occasional boulders blocking my way. I can remember taking detours that took me off the beaten path and on to cow paths that wandered seemingly forever through the puckerbrush. It's been a long interesting journey.
