Most people live life in a pinball machine. They make a small push, and then wait until life falls within reach again. Pinball’s an iconic game, but not meant to be a way of life.
In pinball, most of the game is beyond your control. You provide a small push at the start, and then you watch the ball bounce from one obstacle to the next until it falls within the reach of your levers. Then, you give it another push and wait until it falls back again.
That’s how most people live life right now.

You see the guy in this picture? He’s bored. You can see it all over his face. Boredom is a terrible thing. The word seems fairly harmless at first, but the meaning is far more sinister.
Oxford Dictionaries defines bored as:
Feeling weary because one is unoccupied or lacks interest in one’s current activity.
Think about it. When you say “I’m bored,” your effectively saying “I’m spending time without any meaningful purpose. I’m doing nothing, or doing something I care little about.”
Boredom is exhausting, and boredom is a waste of precious, irreplaceable time.
I’ll be leading a workshop for small businesses who want to learn more about Bitcoin in Murfreesboro, just off the town square.
We’ll cover what Bitcoin is, how it works, and why small businesses should accept it. Anyone who comes will learn how to incorporate Bitcoin into their business.
Registration is $25, and includes a deli sandwich and craft beer.
