People Miss Out Who Don’t Know What They Are Missing – by Gary Smolker

I Live In A Stressful Fast Paced Exhausting World

I am not a smooth talker.

I am a driven creative deep thinking workaholic.

My idea of relaxing on the weekend is to sip a good cup of coffee, read a good book, and to have bagels and cream cheese and a medley of smoked fish [Herring in sour cream, BBQ Cod, Lox, White Fish]and Cole-slaw near bye for me to eat at my leisure.

Below is a picture of the food, coffee and book I had at my fingertips Saturday morning, December 10, 2016.


When I go to a night-time intellectual event, such as a lecture, I want to eat a tasty treat to get me in a good mood before the lecture begins.

I know happy people think better.

Below is a picture of a plate of mini-lemon-meringue pies at the desert table at a lecture I attended Wednesday night, December 7, 2016.


Below is a close up picture of one of those mini-lemon-meringue pies, after the lady sitting next to me took a bite out of it.


Tasty tasty tasty, those mini-lemon-meringue pies were tasty.

Folk-Wisdom Needs Updating

Folk-wisdom needs updating.

Be my friends and the friend of everyone else in the world by getting into the process of letting people know what they don’t know.

Old School Poetical Thinking

“A loaf of bread, a bottle of wine and you equals pleasure.”

Today Everyone Has the Ability to Renegotiate Their Reality

“A good cup of coffee and a good book to read equals pleasure.”

“Shoe shopping is therapeutic.

“Shoe shopping is a wonderful treatment for Post Traumatic Stress Disorders.”

Thought for the Day

“In the end, winning is sleeping better.” – Jodie Foster

You can renegotiate your reality.

Bon Appetite and Good Shopping.

About Gary S. Smolker

PERSONAL PHILOSOPHY: No enterprise can exist for itself alone. Every successful enterprise ministers to some great need, it performs some great service, not for itself, but for others. Otherwise, it ceases to be profitable and ceases to exist. Imagination, open mindedness and flexibility are the most important factors in unlocking potential. Those who embrace innovation, improvisation, continuous learning, time management, are action oriented, high energy, passionate, creative, purposeful and intense individuals are best equipped to succeed. We all have ideas and the ability to make progress by sharing information and our ideas and also by changing our ideas when appropriate. We should always be on the lookout for teaching and mentoring moments. We hold time like water in our hands; however tightly we clench our fingers, it drips away. But, if it falls on a seed, a seed may grow to become something that will have a positive social impact. PERSONAL INTERESTS: I have a passion to learn, to innovate, to lead, to mentor and to teach. I seek to write things worth reading and want to do things worth writing about. I enjoy (a) driving a fast car, (b) having intense conversations (c) teaching/mentoring, (d) reading and (e) being involved in productive activity. PERSONAL: I believe in cultivating and backing passionate people, innovation, and old fashioned good ideas. I love making human connections and spreading good ideas. I am strongly motivated to achieve in situations in which independence of thought and action are called for. PERSONAL GOALS: I want to live life vibrantly, to be as sharp as a tack until my last breath and to change the world by being me. My personal goal is to be fully engaged in life, to lead by example, to set high standards and to continue to amass firsthand experience and knowledge in all that interests me. PERSONALITY: I love fun and mischief. I relish absurdity. I have an irreverent, facetious and satiric disposition. I dread boredom. I have spent a lifetime reading. I have no bias against people who have lived successful and/or complicated lives. I write to release tension, to get things off my chest. SOCIAL MEDIA: I post articles on the "Gary S. Smolker Idea Exchange" blog at, and "Dude's Guide to Women's Shoes" at I also post images and comments on Instagram @garyspassion.
