Okay, maybe it’s a jealousy thing.
So, there’s another one of these Stanford professor guys who wrote a book about how to change your behaviors. Now I’m stuck on comparing his story and mine.
First off, his name is Fogg. Who wants to read a book written by a PhD named Fogg? I’m Kuhl (pronounced Cool). I was first in my class at the prestigious Hiram Scott College, not that California school in Palo Alto. Just because there were only three in my graduating class (and the college survived fewer years than most half-hour television sitcoms) should not lessen the recognition I deserve for going to school with a bunch of tough Vietnam veterans and noble academicians who had been “let go” from other universities.
I digress. My point is, Dr. Fogg writes a 306-page book telling us normal folks we can transform our lives by focusing on the little choices we make each day. I’ve been preaching the same sermon for over 30 years. I do it by telling tiny stories and giving big hugs to people who may have lost their way. Dr. Fogg writes a book and has a famous publishing company knocking at his door.
Yes, on further reflection, I believe it is a jealousy thing. My guess is, I’d like B.J. Fogg.
