There’s a very popular, well-known analogy about the odds of success: It’s about baseball players. A baseball player that averages a .300 batting average is considered very good, if not great. That means…for every 10 times he steps up to the plate he gets a hit ‘only’ 3 times out of that 10.
Now let’s take Colonel Sanders, who created Kentucky Fried Chicken. He was a driven guy but had years of failed jobs and personal relationships. But at the age of 73, he hit it when he sold (now named) KFC for millions.
The California-based hard rock band Van Halen slugged it out in the LA club scene for years playing 6 days a week sometimes doing 6 sets a night in the mid to late 70’s. Every record label snubbed them over and over until they garnered such a huge following on their own (they started pulling in thousands to their shows) that Warner Brothers Records signed them to a recording contract. They went on the become one of the biggest selling artists in history.
But this is not about sticking out until you hit it…Continue reading
It’s been a week since you’ve sworn off Aunt Ginny’s Chocolate Chip Cookies….so why did I see a smudge of semi-sweet chocolate on your cheek??
It’s ok…they’re damn good.
We should just talk about food today, but I’ll save that for later. Let’s round up the week…Continue reading
Today was going to be my first Vlog episode for KennethHolland.com but the editing was a disaster because of corrupted files.

Today’s Dot Com Minute will get you caught up on some juicy tidbits of news: From Apple and their ‘battery’ concern for us, Facebook’s false flags (or something) more video data, 280 character Tweets…and weed.
Let’s do this…Continue reading

Take a minute a think about some of the great inventions/discoveries of modern man:

These are just a few but significant ones.

If there’s one thing that really frustrates me when I’m reading blog posts or social media posts (on Facebook especially) it’s long, unwieldy and hard to read paragraphs.
You know…the kind that go on and on and strain your eyes before the writer finally decides “hmmmm…wow. Maybe I should start a new paragragh.”
No kidding!Continue reading
I want to take a moment and wish everyone a Happy New Year. I also want to make clear that I’m NOT anti-new year. ‘Resetting yourself’ on the new year can be helpful if you’re prepared to follow through. But some have commented to me that my 2 posts (here and here) are putting down resolutions. I am not. What I AM trying to convey is that you don’t have to be a slave to what the calendar and the media pushes on us.
If New Year’s Resolutions help you move forward…then do it.Continue reading
Well another year is over and with the New Year blah blah blah…BLAH!
All the New Year really does is it gives us permission to rationalize that we really screwed the pooch last year but “Dammit! I’m gonna kick ass now….you just watch!” Actually, I spout off on this subject last year if you want to get depressed. I’m kidding…but I DO think I’m right. ALSO, my video below touches on this very subject again…so go give it a look (and subscribe to my Youtube channel…)
Criminy…was that just the ultimate tangent or what? Anyway…Happy New Year! Go get drunk tomorrow (NO car keys!) and kiss that hottie you’ve been drooling over. It’s all good on the ‘eve.
Anyway…here’s what happened last week…Continue reading
