Booski (powerful, proactive, adventurous) and Bob (taciturn, stationary, judger)
Booski looks out at the world and sees a freaking beautiful buffet. He see opportunities and is eager to have fun, network, learn and grow. He’s not concerned with what others are doing or thinking about him, because he simply enjoys the buffet so much. For Booski fulfillment is being in the mix.
Bob on the other hand is Mr. Security. He plays it safe and doesn’t want to do the things that Booski thinks are fun. Actually he thinks Booski is ridiculous in how he always wants to do stuff that other people aren’t doing. Bob’s always asking, why wake up early, why read those books, why meet those people? You don’t have to do that stuff Booski. The cool people aren’t doing that stuff Boo, so why should you.

It’s crazy ya’ll. I’m giving you a little insight into my mind, because I believe I’m not alone in this. I was reading one of my books yesterday that I’m super-enjoying right now and I found this voice (Bob) within me critiquing the fact that I was reading and learning simply based on the fact that Bob thought I was working harder than others were and that was not cool. In essence, myself was judging myself for something it was doing to make it better.
