Finally I have an answer! Have you met Chuck Lorre?
Here’s my favorite CL teaching of the day.
One of the great blessings of getting older is realizing, without shame and remorse, what an idiot you’ve been at earlier stages of your life. I can think of nothing that breeds humility better than this on-going epiphany. The knowledge that with a few exceptions, I was the human version of the “don’t pass” bet on a craps table, is oddly comforting. Let’s take a look. In 1977 I tried to talk a friend out of investing all his money in stores that only sold running shoes. A few years later, I told anyone who would listen that the female singer of “Lucky Star” was a one-hit wonder, while the singer of “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” was here to stay. I saw no future in bottled water or fancy coffee shops. Cellular phones? What for? I already have a phone. And let’s not forget that in 1988 I read William Gibson’s “Neuromancer,” logged onto the Internet, and STILL didn’t see it coming. Shall I go on? Shall I share with you some of the moronic things I’ve done, thought and said in my personal life? Of course I won’t. I’m not stupid. I’m just humble.
