This page provides you with several search criteria for pages that you may want to like or follow. You can narrow your search by Music, Movies, Television, People, Sports, Brands & Products, Companies & Organizations as well as Local Business & Places.  It is important to note that the Local Business & Places is NOT business located near you. These pages are pages that were created using Local Business & Places category.

When you visit this page, you will see Page Invites on the right side of the screen, along with which of your friends suggested this page to you.  Not sure why Facebook doesn’t make these recommendations easier to find, but maybe that will change one day.

    Sheriff Buford T. Justice & Goals

    Recently during a cold and rainy Saturday afternoon while working, I turned the T.V. on for background noise.  Since I was tired of my music library, my thought process was that the T.V could provide something to tune out while I worked.  See mom, I still do that; it worked in high school and it works now! Well, for the most part; read on to see what I mean.

    After a couple of minutes of bouncing around on various channels, I settled on Smokey & The Bandit on one of the movie channels.  Talk about a classic movie!  Well, classic for my generation, not classic like Gone With The Wind or something of that nature.  Other than watching a few scenes, I mostly worked while reciting  famous lines from memory; most of them compliments of Jackie Gleason’s character, Sheriff Buford T. Justice.  Also laughed at myself for remembering a lot of the lines.

    Watching and listening to the movie sparked thoughts of goals and how Sheriff Justice was a master at goal setting and goal pursuit, even if he never reached his goal; catching Smokey.

    Think about it:

    • He had one single goal in mind; catching and arresting Smokey.
    • Nothing kept him from pursuing his goal; not being out of his legal jurisdiction (comfort zone); not dealing with unexpected circumstances like losing the top of his car (roadblocks), nor having his not so smart son with him (dealing with others).
    • He never lost focus of his goal, catching Smokey; not matter what happened along the way or what roadblocks he encountered.

    How may times do we stop pursuing a goal because we are out of our comfort zone, we have roadblocks or we struggle with others?

    Those are my thoughts on how a hilarious movie character reminded us that we need to keep pursuing goals, no matter what.  Your thoughts?
