The Real Reason Zuck is Traveling around the Country

I've been meaning to write this tiny excerpt on why I believe Zuck and his wife Priscilla have been traveling around the country as part of their 2017 goals. The journalists and media were fast to conclude that the reason was a possible future run for president. As somebody who loves to travel and meet people from different cultures and backgrounds not just in the USA but from all over the world I can say that the reason for the travels is to become better acquainted with the world outside of Silicon Valley.

When you travel you see how other people live, you learn to eat what they eat, experience what they experience on a daily basis, and most importantly you learn from them. The more you learn about other peoples way of life the more understanding you become. It's important to see the world through somebody elses lense and viewpoint and life is all about learning and culture.

So in my opinion that is the reason for the traveling. I look forward to seeing more of his updates on his travels and the lessons we can all learn from the great people he and his wife are interacting with across the country.

Quote of the Day - Greatness

Quote of the day about striving for greatness. "Someone once told me to not bite off more than I can chew. I said I'd rather choke on greatness than nibble on mediocrity."

No confirmation on the originator of the quote but if you know shoot me an email to give credit where credit is due. Strive for greatness like Mark Zuckerberg or Elon Musk.

Just be a good person - Richart Ruddie

Had one of the nicest compliments this past weekend. A new friend said "Chart do you know why I like you?"

"At the end of the day you're just a genuine person Richart Ruddie"

You're not looking for anything from anybody, you are just here to be happy and have a good time and if you can facilitate others to be happy as well then you do your part to ensure all others around you are happy.

I was telling a new friend as we shared a Lyft into the city about this interaction and he noted that it's great that you can showcase this without trying and others notice. In life I've blogged about making it and then mattering. I strive to reach a pinnacle and a second part of my life where I can matter in making the world a better place and helping to solve initaitves that really matter.

That is why I appreciate the Chan Zuckerberg initiative

"We want every child to grow up in a better world. Our hopes for the future center on two ideas: advancing human potential and promoting equality."

Use your power for good and be genuine and stop wanting something from everybody around you and then you will have found peace in yourself to grow as a human.

Would you trade your life with Bill Gates?

If you could have all the money in the  world but you would be giving up years of your life (applicable for those 40 years and younger)

Its a valid question. How many people around the world would be willing to trade their life with Bill Gates is 60 years old and will have approximately 30 years left on this earth. You would have no financial worries but you would be limited to 30 years.

Call me crazy but I wouldn't trade with him if I had the chance. Love the life that you live and live it to the fullest. Our time on this earth is limited for now...

P.S. Do you believe that the first person who will live to 1,000 years old has been born?

What does Reddit Stand For?

A recent Reddit thread has some thoughts on what it would stand for if it did stand for something and here are some of the highlights:







(R.E.D.D.I.T.) Reason Everybody Doesnt Do Important Tasks

Read Endless Debates Devoid of Intelligent Thought

Read Everyone's Dumb and Delightful Internet Thoughts

Really elaborate discussions discussing irrelevant topics

Revealing Everyone's Deepest Darkest Internet Thoughts

Redundant Extrapolations Deduced & Discussed by Internet Trolls

Read. Evaluate. Deliberate. Decide. Instigate. Troll.


I personally love the Troll comments.

Condor Airlines flying from Baltimore Washington International (BWI) to Frankfurt, Germany (FRA) direct for only $311.00 including one bag. Flight time is 9 hours. For those wanting to travel from the Washington D.C., Delaware, Maryland, Virginia region to Europe and know the headaches of flying on Wow Air (not recommended) then check out Condor Airlines.

Condor Flight 2075 is the one I will be taking and will leave a review of my experience. I flew from Boston on Wow Air to Iceland and can confirm that Wow Air is not fantastic or "WOW"ful they are more like Spirit Airlines. So only fly with them if you absolutely have to.
