Week 5: Clothing

This blog is about helping you as well as myself to become extraordinary.  I don’t think any of us should view being extraordinary as something unattainable.  If we look closely enough, we will often witness extraordinary acts or actually meet people who have performed extraordinary acts.

For instance, it was only a few weeks ago that I witnessed the bowling of a 300 game by my friend JR, whom I consider an extraordinary individual for a number of reasons in addition to bowling.  Bowling a perfect game (i.e.; a 300 game) is an extraordinary act, as any bowler can tell you.

I would appreciate you passing on to me extraordinary acts that you have recently witness or extraordinary people you have recently met.  Just email me at HarmonyBooksFilmsLLC@comcast.net

 

RESULTS OF LAST WEEK’S POLL ON ALCOHOL

It seems a quarter of us routinely have one or two drinks daily, while at the other end of the spectrum about 12% of us abstain from drinking for religious or health reasons.

 

THIS WEEK’S JOKE

You hear about the guy who was disappointed in the reflective running jacket he had bought?

It just sits around reading works by Proust and Descartes.

 

WEEK 5: CLOTHING – CHOOSE APPROPRIATE CLOTHING

Clothing is a form of communication.  So is your clothing saying what you want it to say about you?

Is it saying you want to fit in with a particular social group, profession or trade?

Is it saying that you respect the social conventions surrounding the function you have chosen to attend?

Or, is it saying you don’t care what people think of you?

This posting wraps up the section of my book on the physical traits.  I do hope that all of you take these posts on the physical traits very seriously.  If you do not watch your diet, do not exercise, short change your sleep, and drink too much; your years after 50 are going to be more and more unpleasant with each passing year.

THIS WEEK’S POLL

 

QUOTE FOR THE WEEK

SELF-HELP BOOKS IN ADDITION TO MINE

My Final Cover

http://www.amazon.com/Tired-Being-Ordinary-Are-You/dp/0990388697

have been using this blog to bring to your attention self-help books in addition to my own, that I think you will find helpful.  However, when it comes to clothing advice, I believe current magazines are more helpful than books I can think of, plus just looking around in stores and at people in general and you will likely see clothing very becoming to you.

MOVIE OF THE WEEK

The Devil Wears Prada, is an entertaining movie that also says a lot about fashion.  If you never saw this film, you should and for those of us that saw it when it first came out in 2006, we may want to watch it again–I think it is that good.

CONCLUSION

As always, if you believe this blog has any value, please pass it on to your friends and people you care about. And if you have suggestions as to how I can make these Monday posts even more helpful to you, please let me know.

Thank you

  1. Bill, I wear clothing for comfort in the off hours, but in the day, I wear clothing that puts me in a position to succeed. I do believe that clothing can set a tone for an interview/interrogation, for respect and knowledge of what individuals believe that your clothing says about you.
