Tim Kolodziej: ‘The Noticer Returns’ — and he’s talking to me


NEW CASTLE — “Don’t be like average people. Most folks look for their car keys with more energy than they search for wisdom that can change their lives.”

So how, then, shall we proceed? We must keep in mind a few simple statements:

•There are NO little things.

•Everything matters.

•We always have a choice.

•If we’re not intentional about the route we want to take, we’ll simply wander the earth during our time here.

•Lead your negative emotions — don’t let them lead you.

•Follow wise men and women who have gone before you.

And when in doubt, just ask Jones. I’ll let him take it from here.

“Don’t sweat the small stuff? That’s a lie that’ll ruin your life. Your choices, your words, and every move you make are permanent,” he says.

“Life is lived through indelible ink. You’re making little bitty brush strokes every minute you walk around this earth. And with those tiny brush strokes, you are creating the painting that your life will ultimately become — a masterpiece or a disaster.”

Hmm. I hadn’t noticed.

Or really given it much deep thought.

Until now.

Thank you, Mr. Jones, for the powerful reminder.

Jones, I mean.
