Monday Morning Dispatch - Volume #9

To get your Monday started off right:

  1. No car on the road in the USA rivals the colorly decorated trucks of India. Dan Eckstein's photo series dug up my childhood fascination with these trucks while living in India for 2.5 years. 
  2. I discovered my answer to "what would you buy if you hit the lottery" and its an ICON Derelict.

  3. The issues in downtown Detroit from the air
  4. "Let us dare to dream. Let us get lost in what once was and what we hope will be. Let us not take anything for granted, but take everything as a chance to build better, improve upon and push our limits. We should not be tied down too much to any one persons opinions, whether good or bad, but instead leaning against the solid rock of our God-given intuition. We need to trust our guts more. We need to learn to look each other in the eye and tell the truth. Being nice isn't gonna change the world." - Kyle Steed
  5. AJ Leon's words continue to drive me farther than I ever imagined I could go long after I first read them. "The Paralysis of Waiting" is one of my favorites. 
  6. For those who feel their chance to make an impact has slipped past them, Jonathan Sackner-Bernstein dispels that notice in a great TEDx talk
  7. "The biggest change for me was when I stopped being afraid of being afraid. I realized that being afraid was a good thing, and that changed my whole outlook. If I wanted to do something, I did it. Fear is a great thing, but being afraid of fear is paralyzing." - Benjamin Heath
