Description

WOW! THAT WAS A BAD IDEA Perhaps "common sense" isn't really as "common place" as society would prefer or believe it to be. Why else would there be an abundance of "self-help" material on the market? Self-help is advice on helping myself remake the mess of my life that I've made. While it is easy to view the missteps of others and think, "You should know better," or devalue one's own life due to poor decisions in the past; perhaps the miracle in life is the ability to learn from the "hot mess" that is often the result of "mistakes made." Even in the most tragic, unbelievable, or ridiculous of choices made, there are glimpses of greatness beyond the motivations that inspired and transcending the consequences that desire to define. All of the preceding verbiage looks different when the rubber meets the road. You've most likely either been on the giving or receiving end of the statement given in question form: "You did WHAT!?" More common than not to the human experience, both is a reasonable assumption. As for me, my life has been marked by moments when my family, friends, and peers have indeed looked upon me with confusion, entertainment, discouragement, or heartbreak, as they've wondered what in the world, if anything, was going through my head, "this time," when I just accomplished the latest in a great list of foolish things. If you've never taken a terrible idea and brought it to fruition, you might be surprised to learn that quite a lot actually goes through one's mind before setting about the business of bad decisions. This book is a story of learning. The hard way. Over and over again. It is with great hope that my failures, humiliations, and short comings will not only be entertaining, but also insightful and offering something more to anyone who's ever fallen just a little short in "getting it right."
