I cannot believe it. 😳 Apparently, those who are so disposed have found the excuses, the ways, and the means to become even less motivated this year. (MIND BLOWN)
CBC.ca: What is ‘goblin mode’ and why is it Oxford’s 2022 word of the year?.
Oxford English Dictionary has run its annual contest for “Word of the year 2022” and sadly the winner is “Goblin Mode”.
“Goblin Mode” has been defined as “A type of behaviour that is unapologetically self-indulgent, lazy, slovenly, or greedy, typically in a way that rejects social norms or expectations”. Or in the words of Sheena Goodyear of CBC Radio “Think dirty sweatpants, a messy home, piles of junk food and an overall attitude of not caring what anyone thinks of you.”
Meanwhile, I continue to recover – ever SO slowly from our recent onslaught of the bubonic plague (or whatever fresh hell this is). To pass time, since speaking above a non-existent whisper or let’s say breathing is not an option, I have been reading David Goggin’s first best seller “Can’t Hurt Me”.
I have always appreciated a really well written book. I have always been fascinated by the potential and the power of the human body, mind, and soul.
This book is beautifully written and it goes above and beyond in every way. It is raw, it is real, it is masterfully written, it is phenomenal – as is David Goggins.
David Goggins is not looking to be better than anyone, to earn more, to win more, to have more. He is on a quest to find the limits of his own true potential – and it is amazing. I cannot imagine anyone who could not feel honored and inspired to be allowed inside the life and mind of this man, by being given the opportunity to read this book. It is that good. His second book, “Never Finished” has recently been released and is next up on my reading list. I expect that it will be every bit as good as “Can’t Hurt Me” because this man has tapped so deep into his potential, that he could not possibly settle for putting out anything mediocre.
Which brings me back to “goblin mode”. Who could settle for that – and why? When we are capable of so much more – WHY?
That’s it for today. Take care and have a great day! 💞🌞
