Sit Down Comedy

Today’s SIT DOWN COMEDY is shared by Joel Christopher Scott, one of Jonathan’s adopted sons.

List of things I learned from Jonathan Richard Cring:

1. Every ‘Things To Do Today’ list shall begin with ‘Write a Things To Do Today’ list.

2. Get up early and nap after lunch.

3. Tip your servers, treat them like people.

4. Don’t fear.

5. Listen for the universe, because it speaks softly.

6. Even a bad swim is better than almost anything else.

7. Real fathers try.

8. Good engineers get out of the way of the artist.

9. Make things eventful.

10. Let humans be human and love them.

11. The older you get, the more expensive problems become—get used to it.

12. Check your oil.

13. Music should be an experience.

14. Practice at home; rehearse when you get around other people.

15. Luck exists, and so does grace.

3 Things … October 1st, 2020

Today’s 3 Things (X 3) is brought by Angela Cring.

Three things that I learned from my friend Jon Cring that I’ve already used this morning before 8:30 A. M.:

1. Wake up early and with a good attitude.
2. When checking out with cashiers, never leave them like you found them. Always ask how they’re doing and give them a smile.
3. Be generous with those who are just downstairs from you and give of yourself when you can.

Three things that I learned from my friend Jon Cring that I used before lunch today:

1. Be on time. Stay in integrity and when you are not going to be on time, communicate. Let people know you’re going to be late.

2. Don’t overthink your writing and don’t edit as you go. Just write and keep writing. Have confidence in the process.

3. When you are irked by someone, say it immediately. Don’t wait. Over time it gains unnecessary heat and shouldn’t be allowed.

Three things that I learned from my friend Jon Cring that I used before dinner today:

1. Your children are just boarders in your house for a season. They do not own the house and should be prioritized accordingly.

2. Someone is always watching what you are doing–even if you don’t see them. So do what is right, always.

3. Evil wins when it convinces us that good has to fight.

3 Things You Can Do … September 17th, 2020

That Win The Admiration of Everybody (Even Your Enemies)

1. Sharing what you can.

It’s actually the Golden Rule. There’s nothing wrong with taking care of your own needs, but there is something wrong with forbidding blessing to others less fortunate.

2. Pursuing what works.

If you know (or even strongly suspect) that something is going to work, chase it down with gusto.

3. Letting everyone know that you can work with what you’ve got.

A true genius is someone who’s given little and finds a way to make it more.

 

1 Thing You Can Do to Guarantee that Fear Will Remain … September 14th, 2020

Take it seriously before you take it someplace to determine if it’s serious.

The truth is, your mimicry of a problem is stronger than the problem itself.

In other words, your ability to imitate sickness is often much more astute, and even believable, than the reality of the problem itself.

Although there might be a bone-chilling sadness from finding out the truth, trying to keep up the illusion of fear can be exhausting.

You just have to find out.

Fear is what humans use when they hope God will surprise them by letting them know through some backdoor way that their fears are ill-founded—and they really are okay. And of course, it would have to be a back-door way—because fear is so very creative.

Fear loves fooling us.

Every person who is fearful needs to be honest and realize two things:

1. No person has ever died from foolishness.

It’s the realitythe real thingthat gets you. Which means that the majority of the time, when your foolishness is not a reality, you are legitimately safe.

2. Feeling foolish makes you look foolish,

This is not only uncomfortable, but can leave you defensive and ultimately appear ten times worse than necessary.

Go ahead and find out.

That way if you aren’t what you think you are, you’re safe and sound. And if you are what you fear, you can get started with the comfort and healing one week earlier.
