Well I just learned something the other day! I’m a discouraged perfectionist (DP)! You sure couldn’t tell by how I keep my desk (at home OR at work), or bedroom, or garage or… the point is I’ve got a mess of “stuff” but I’ve got an idea of what pile to look for it if I (or you) need something! This fascinates me as I now begin the pursuit of understanding myself better and possibly even what work/career best fits my personality style. I’m not saying I want a test that says, “Congratulations! You get to be a coal miner.” or something along those lines but if my personality type doesn’t fit with, say a librarian job, I’d like to know so I don’t have to “find out the hard way”.
So explain what a DP is – Someone with all of the same type-A tendencies of the perfectionist, BUT they tend to make “all or nothing” decisions. DP’s even tend to say that if they can’t make it perfect they don’t want to do it at all! (all or nothing, see?) So DP’s often choose nothing, which is too bad! It’s better to fail at something than to never try it. You see, success is just going from failure to failure (until you win big) without looking enthusiasm!
I’ve got a rule, “you can’t say you don’t like something until you’ve tried it, at least twice” This is good because everyone deserves a second chance! Maybe the chef at that new restaurant was having a bad day or you just don’t have the hang of curling so give it another go. Although, if you mess up skydiving, that might be your only shot at it. What I’m trying to say, is that you need to try things more than once before you kibosh it.
So there is no point to this post but to let you, the reader, know that I found something out about myself. How weird/lame is that? Also, if you haven’t voted for this Canadian to go to space, you should: www.bit.ly/spaceluke
But why would you want to vote for me?! Great question! Maybe you shouldn’t, except… I need your help. I can’t do this without the help of ALOT of people. I don’t know A LOT of people, just a bunch of people and their numbers are not large enough. I tried it with a Doritos commercial a couple of years ago and finished in the top third, not bad though.
No one can harness the power of Social Media, I realize that. This is a wild beast that does what it wants, when it wants.
Now, I want to request your help! Tell your friends who could tell their friends and so on! You may not know what kind of power you have, but in the world of Social Media, a single vote can start a snowball effect of awesomeness!!!

Battle at Beaver Creek (BaBC) is an independent sci-fi film being made in the Okanagan Valley of British Columbia, Canada. It’s really quite an interesting plot! Lots of conspiracy theory stuff and deep philosophical points. To keep up to date with the developments on the film, check out: http://www.battleatbeavercreek.com/ This will be exciting to say the least! 🙂

So it would appear that the year 2012 is upon us, how fast did that happen?! This last year was such a blur for the Bros In the Know! It was particularly busy as we started! September we came to be and are slowly growing/adjusting out direction!
Now we don’t have any “new year resolutions” per say however we’ve come to the conclusion that resolutions fail more often than not. So if we were “forced” to have some resolutions, these would be them:
1. Make less money
2. Gain more weight
3. Loose popularity
We’d love more input from you, the readers(viewers, participants, etc.) so keep your comments and suggestions coming! Email us as TheBitK@gmail.com or BrosInTheKnow@gmail.com. Thanks again and may your year be as successful as ours will be!
