My friend Brad Parker wrote a great song called “Nothing Lasts Forever (except my love for you),” and he’s right. Devo guitarist Bob Casale didn’t last forever. He died this week of a sudden heart attack. And whether you liked them or not, back in the 80’s Bob and his bandmates took some huge career risks, and made a significant contribution to the music of the day. A great loss indeed. It made me think that not only do our friends pass, but our great ideas and worthwhile projects pass too. And the syndrome that kills great ideas and worthwhile projects the quickest is the disease of "Procrastination."

I'm listening to the audio book "the Icarus Deception" by Seth Godin. Great book Thanks for your reminder that we have no time To dawdle. I'm flying close to the sun and hope My wings hold up cos they are not made of wax. Thanks for the gift of yourself Michael! We're taking it in-we're in the arena getting bloodied but No other way would do.
Great book! I highly reccommend "The Icarus Deception." Thanks so much for mentioning it! —Michael

don't die with the music still in you! WOW! so motivating to get all these creative ideas out of me on the page or recorded. It makes me think of working out: The longer you put it off the harder it is to get back in shape. YUCK! Peace man. Love your simple sweet motivations.

Michael you are one person that can consistently touch move & inspire many to be unstoppable! Thanks for what you do! You have that impact on me! At some time or other We all are tempted to take the easy road & justify accepting the circumstances that limit our opportunity to make the maximum impact!--- What an invitation!!! This is an awesome inquiry into the personal potential of each one of us could have on the world! --- Lets all be unstoppable! --- Then What would the world look like! Thanks

| Devo |
I feel like I'm the only guy who loved Devo back then. Sorry to hear of Bob's passing. They were a great "under rated" band.

| Never again |
It is WAY harder to get back in the groove again. I procrastinated for 7 years and now the times are different, the music is different, the technology is different. Hell, the whole game is different...and so am I. If Iím lucky enough to get back in, I am NEVER going to waste my time procrastinating!
