Who would you hire
to organize your life
There are those heroic people for whom keeping things organized, together and on track is as natural as breathing.
I am not one of those people.
Much of the time I struggle to know what day of the week or month it happens to be.
This is one of the trade offs of being really present a lot of the time.
No future, no past.
Merely right here, right meow.
In Paris this was even more true.
When speaking in French, I only have the present tense. This was wonderful for comedy. I couldn’t tell stories about the past. I couldn’t worry about the future.
Right here, right meow.
But living in the present has its limits.
Which is a funny thing to think.
We humans have likely survived in large part because of our ability to learn from our past and imagine our futures.
But those abilities are limited as well.
Perhaps, we could all use a personal assistant.
If I were to hire the ultimate personal assistant, it would be New York comedienne Mary Crosby.
She’s brilliant, funny, crass and weird.
People need to see her stuff.
Check her out.
Perhaps she wouldn’t be great to keep things organized.
Or moving forward.
But things sure would be fun.
If you had the ultimate personal assistant, who would they be?
