  1. I don't agree that there's a thin line between self delusion and dreaming big. I actually think they are mirror opposites. But what do I know? I'm just the 800 pound gorilla in the room 🙂

  2. "…tomorrow's gains sacrificed on the altar of yesterday's illusions…"

    It's so amazing, I had a conversation with a couple of people this morning about how all we should be concerned about is "NOW." Yesterday can only be a lesson for today, or even tomorrow. But to get trapped in yesterday's illusions is self-delusional.

    @Nefertiti.. LOL @ 800 pound gorilla.. really? Well.. I think to the person in question, self-delusion is thinking big.. Perhaps its only to others that the gulf is yawning..

    @sweetnothin' — LOL.. Thanks.. Are you back or just passing thru?

    @Jaycee — Very well said — Yesterday provides the lessons for tomorrow.. Dwelling on yesterday, might make us lose today!

    • LOL… The statement came out of a discussion I had with someone recently where it suddenly became very clear that certain actions were predicated on rather flimsy foundations…..So what I thought was a big dream was actually self-delusion, in that rather than have a concrete plan for going from dream to reality, i was already acting like the reality was here…..
