Robin Williams Death and the Lesson.

August 17, 2014 - Author: R. Lynn Lane

On August 11th, 2014, at approximately 11:55 am, Marin County Communications received a 9-1-1 telephone call reporting that a male adult had been located unconscious and not breathing inside his residence located at 95 St. Thomas Way in unincorporated Tiburon, California. Later to reveal it was the home of Robin Williams and he was the male adult in the 911 call.

“It is our hope in the wake of Robin’s tragic passing that others will find the strength to seek the care and support they need to treat whatever battles they are facing,” said Schneider, Williams’ widow, “so they may feel less afraid.”

Nancy Andreasen, a leading neuroscientist and psychologist, co-wrote the first empirical study that proved the increased likelihood of mood disorder in creative people.

“There really is no question that there’s a statistical correlation of mental illness in highly creative people,” said Andreasen. “It’s not a lifetime sentence,” she said — and that treatment “does not diminish their creativity.”

Williams’ death shouldn’t just remind us of the list of comics who died too young, like John Belushi or Chris Farley, but should serve as a lesson to us all.  We should listen just as openly and lovingly to Robin Williams today as we did when he was on stage or on the screen.

Writing Your Book

- Author: R. Lynn Lane

Writing your book is a cool way to get your ideas out into the market place and to make a little and in some cases a large amount of cash.

So, let’s get down to it. How do you go about writing your book? I would suggest starting a blog or just writing your thoughts and notes down in a journal if a blog is not possible at this time.

I also believe that an e-book is the best way to start. E-books are becoming so popular that Amazon and Barnes & Noble are preparing for big sales in the future. With an e-book you don’t have to write the 250 page novel. Most e-books are short 20 to 60 pages that are full of great content. E-books also give you content to use later in an expanded version that you can put into a printed copy if you like.

Your Approach.

  1. Brainstorm all your ideas on paper.
  2. Create an outline that will flow.
  3. Dictate your book on Audacity or any recording device.
  4. Have it transcribed.
  5. Put it together with your edits and re-edit within 24 hr.
  6. Make it into a PDF and send it out to Amazon on kindle.
  7. Then promote.

Now, you don’t have to dictate it or have it transcribe. The cool thing about dictating and recording it is you now have a digital copy that you can sell at a later time too.

If you chose to write it that’s fine too. Keep in mind that you don’t have to write it all by yourself. You can go to elance.com and contract out a freelancer and get help. Great people there and great talent to help from writing to editing and at a price that suits you.

Your book is inside of you waiting. Get started today.

Embrace The Struggle

August 6, 2014 - Author: R. Lynn Lane

Morning Mojo ~ “Conditions are never just right. People who delay action until all
factors are favorable are the kind who do nothing.” ~ William Feather ~
Waiting is the brains way of giving you permission to do nothing based on
imaginary fear of struggle and pain. A caterpillar must struggle to be
transformed into what it is destined to be. As the butterfly struggles it
develops strength and prepares itself to spread new wings and fly unencumbered
with a freedom never known to itself. Embrace the struggles and prepare
yourself for a new found freedom and your Destiny!

Know What You Value

July 24, 2014 - Author: R. Lynn Lane

Morning Mojo ~ You do not wake up one morning a bad person. It happens by a thousand tiny surrenders of self-respect to self-interest. ~Robert Brault ~ Who and what you value in life will be shown by your action. When all is said and done, makes no difference the things you say, plan or intend, it is purely the actions you take that count. Be about making those decisions that drive you forward to your true passion, mission and purpose on this journey of life.
Life hands us some heavy baggage along the way. When we know what we value and our purpose that is when some baggage can be dropped right where we stand and move forward unencumbered.

Life Is For Living!

July 18, 2014 - Author: R. Lynn Lane

For many years I worked in palliative care. My patients were those who had gone home to die. Some incredibly special times were shared. I was with them for the last three to twelve weeks of their lives. People grow a lot when they are faced with their own mortality.

When questioned about any regrets they had or anything they would do differently, common themes surfaced again and again. Here are the most common five:

1. I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me.

2. I wish I didn’t work so hard.

3. I wish I’d had the courage to express my feelings.

4. I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends.

5. I wish that I had let myself be happier.

Life is for living. The time we spend can never be returned. Invest each moment doing and being that person you wish to be. Enjoy the people that you value in your life.
