ok man?

Watched Yes Man yesterday with some friends , a pretty decent movie , and it got me thinking . 
 It isn't the first movie to deal with the whole " go and live your life "theme but it's the one that presents the simplest solution to achieving that : saying yes to everything. Sounds challenging right? I mean you wouldn't say yes to stuff meant intentionally to hurt you but you get the idea.

Also not everything that comes in your way will be in the form of a "yes" or "no" question  or a "do it" or "don't " opportunity  . On the other hand maybe it isn't as hard as it seams , I mean besides taking out the garbage or keeping your place tidy is there any other situation to which you say "no" on a regular basis?

Hot chicks don't just come up to you and ask you if you want to get a ride on their scooter , there aren't any fliers with flying lessons in my area and no dude advertises his band on the sidewalk .

 What I'm saying is that most of the time in life opportunities don't just show up on your doorstep waiting for your answer.

P.S Got a garden gnome as a profile pic , is it still technically a dwarf?

  1. I try to say yes to as much as possible just because I want to experience as much as possible, but the prerequisite to this is that you learn how to truly not give a shit.

  2. Saying yes to a number of things might chnge your life but like most things. You have to put effort in t get effort out.
