Be EXCITED About Your Dreams

Today I learned that, being EXCITED about my goals and dreams is a vital ingredient in bringing my dreams to fruition.

All too often I hesitate about being excited about my dreams. What if I fail? What if my dreams do not come true? If I allow myself to get excited, if I allow myself to put my whole heart into my goals/dreams/relationships, I might fail and my heart may be decimated. Would it not be better to just put half of my heart into whatever I am trying to accomplish? That way, if the endeavor fails, I still have half my heart.

Brad Barton failed over and over again, but he kept getting back up, and finally reached his goal of breaking a world record in running.

I just listened to this episode of Live On Purpose radio: Getting Better at Getting Better. Dr. Paul? talks with Brad about the struggles he had while pursuing his dream.

Network Redirection: UDP/TCP to a File

I just learned a cool bash trick. Redirecting network traffic to a file.

Open two bash terminal windows.

t1$ nc -l 7777 >> TESTFILE
t2$ exec 3<>/dev/tcp/127.0.0.1/7777
t2$ echo 'Hello World!' >&3
t1$ cat TESTFILE

Your TESTFILE now has Hello World! in it.

There are quite a few ways to do this and similar operations, easy found on the Googles.

*Note: Other shells may work, I used bash. Your shell may or may not have redirection capabilities built into it.
