The Intent of This Blog

This blog is intended to be a tool for the growth of whoever wants to use it. It is a daily journal intended to help us be more introspective. Every day I will do my best to supply a motivational quote, a Bible verse, a vocabulary word, and a personal message from myself. Use these if you like as motivation to improve yourself. Then, simply answer the daily questions provided honestly and see if it has an impact on your life. Zig Ziglar said, "If you don't have daily objectives, you qualify as a dreamer." Lets not be just dreamers but doers. Remember Martin Luther King Jr not only had a dream, he also had an objective. Thanks for reading, Jake

What's Your Impression? January 7, 2011

Sometimes new ideas can come from something as mundane and functional as your windshield wipers.” Donald Trump
For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them. Ephesians 2:10
Impression: “a way of regarding, understanding, or interpreting something; a mental impression” New Oxford American Dictionary
Phasing is a musical technique that requires two instruments to play the same melody but at slightly different tempos. The effect produces an almost warbling ring to the music. The style has influenced many electronic composers and produced the minimalistic music movement. But phasing was not the product of a mind alone. It was the product of windshield wipers on a rainy day in New York and creative observation. Steve Reich is one of the only composers living that can say they influenced music composition and some say he's America's greatest living composer. No doubt Reich was a gifted musician and composer, but his inspiration and fame came as a result of his impression of windshield wipers. What's your inspiration?
