Neville DeAngelou

Neville DeAngelou


Like any good mother, her desire was to have her child grow bright and bold, and to be full of good humor and wit, and to be generous and courageous and kind.

For, being such, how could anyone not have the most beautiful story?

After all, what is the code and concept of life, of living, of humanity, if it is not to find one's calling and to have that calling be greater than one's self; if it is not to pursue that calling and complete it with joyous self-respect?

Ten Thousand Sweet Kisses

Initiating phenomenal change can seem daunting. But! Put one foot in front of the other (Or the walker. Or the cane. Or one's knees. Or eyes.) - in the desired direction - not so terrifying!

That done, take a deep breath, lean in, feel your forward momentum! Ahhhhh!

Or even if it is just a sincere meditative thought of the desire! Now smile (if only just for me or at me). Isn't that sweet? Ahhhhh!!

You planted a seed. You triggered your internal trigger. You started the phenomenon. As easy as that you also blessed me. Surplus!

Let's invest that overflow, shall we? We'll discover how together! Then we will get-it-done! Think differently.

During our opening episode we were encouraged to improve our understanding of our CORE VALUES vs our 'MARKET VALUE' vs our SHARED VALUES. That clarity will come in super handy getting-good-things-done. Be sure to improve your understanding.

You are probably familiar with this cute admonition: show a boy a fish - give a boy a fish - teach a boy to fish, etc, etc.; each of these actions, as you know, is anticipated to produce a different outcome. (Similarly for a girl or anyone else.) Familiar?

If you are, think differently, and try this exercise. For each of the forementioned 'fish' actions (separately), alternately insert yourself as one of its THREE characters (imagine & think). Let the particular action unfold. Discover. Take notes. Experience. Take notes. These will come in super handy getting-great-things-done. Take action.

Do you know how to kiss? You learned it as a baby. Do you have a sweet kiss? That is a gift; isn't it? And there is probably no other kiss just like yours! Let's presume so. How many of those sweet kisses do you own? Oooh-we-we! Overflow. Let's see if we can invest some of those as well.

Welcome to our second episode of Getting It Done - surplus - curated by Neville DeAngelou, who has embraced the "secret" of earning loads-upon-loads of life's natural extras, smartly investing all of MORE THAN ENOUGH!


Work like you're broke.


Actionable discoveries continuously shared - smartly - particularly those that uplift, inspire, promote harmony, expand opportunities, exemplify beauty, and reveal wonder, in other words, those proven to strengthen our emboldened exercise of genuine love through all of love's fertile dimensions, supplying those of us who are blessed and inspired to take action with necessary skillsets to be awesome in our real world. Namaste. Share.

How Do you Do It?

- a keen perspective -


SCENARIO: Ralph, Gwen and Tito were bosom buddies from kindergarten to second grade. Tito's older brother, Claus, had a fatal heart condition. When Gwen's sister, Claudia, died, her heart saved Claus. Claus died at the age of 21. However, long before then, at the end of second grade, Gwen and her family emigrated. Ralph and Tito remained buddies throughout high school, separated during transition to distant universities, but stayed close throughout, and had long since lost contact with Gwen. At 27, Ralph married. Seven years later, through the magic of social media Gwen found Ralph and reconnected long distance. Ralph's kids were then 5 and 3. Seven months before their unfortunate incident, Tito responded to Gwen's first poke, and learned that Gwen would be visiting and had three days to spare prior to the start of her conference. Tito extended an invitation to his lakeside residence - a seven bedroom, nine bath mansion nestled in the curvature of ten acres spruced with a luscious garden, three springs and a waterfall. Her arrival coincided with one of his garden parties. Tito's butler of four years and gardener of three years reside in the cottage adjoining the residence which is regularly serviced by a residential staff of four. Nate, Tito's new personal assistant of six months., was doing his level best to remain composed. The envied event was catered and staffed by Wally's Elegant Catering, but for Tito's perennial party specialty, Custard Sappodilla Souffle, which happens to also be a childhood favorite of the trio (Ralph, Gwen and Tito) and for which the butler has been ever joyfully responsible to prepare and serve at the prompt of 7PM in honor of Claus, accompanied by the song, Hero, which on this occasion would be rendered by Quang Liu. A business emergency drew Tito off-schedule. Of courtesy, followed by his personal assistant, Tito hurried to greet Gwen's timely arrival. "You look the same, only an older version," she said on seeing Tito. They hugged, rocking back and forth like giggly children. On release Gwen said, "But you got to do something about your waistline." Tito told her of his emergency and that Nate would be taking her to his residence, to whcih she responded, "You just picked me up and abandoned me to a stranger, like that." Tito chuckled and said, "Mi casa es su casa, so make yourself comfortable. I have to rush. I'll see you at my party," and hurried away unsure whether Gwen was being funny, but recalling her to be the one who always spoke her mind - no beating around the bush - quite unlike him. On arrival at the residence, though taken aback by its sheer splendor, she promptly announced it was too cold, "Turn up the thermostat!" She demanded. She was rebuffed and escorted to her prepared room where Nate agreed to adjust that thermostat to her specification before leaving her with 'dress-wear' instructions for the party. Touring the residence she stumbled into the buttler gingerly preparing his specialty, and inquired what it was. When he told her, she gasped, "Oh no! That's not how it is done. Step aside!" And that is how it all began, with Gwen forcing her way against the butler's fierce push back. The butler knew nothing about Gwen. He demanded she be removed. That was not going to ever happen. Pushing and shoving, declaring the buttler to be incompetent and ignorant, delaying the furious butler past his deadline, she informed everyone who tried to get her out of the kitchen that Custard Sappodilla Souffle was her grandma's specially created recipe made in honor of Claudia, her sister, who in death gave her heart away, and that Custard Sappodilla Souffle had become a favorite of her friendship with Ralph and Tito, and if anyone is going to claim something to be Custard Sappodilla Souffle then it had to be made the right way, and that whatever the butler was cooking was a "whole lot of mess," which she was not going to let 'pass' as her grandma's Custard Sappodilla Souffle! "I don't care if it's listed on the menu. I am not going to let you or anyone else denigrate the legacy of my grandma and my sister with that. That! That! That! Whatever that is! You either get out of the way and let me make it, or you are not serving that mess under the holy name of Custard Sappodilla Souffle" All calls to Tito in the interim were landing in his voicemail.

Today's pivot QUESTION: what is your wild idea you know would be remarakably transforming when implemented?

- Do you have the will to do it?

What Is In Your Personal Toolkit?

Dedicated. Determined. Not distracted. All good! You aim to do whatever it takes to get 'it' done. Awesome! And you are working like a dog! Don't. Work like you're broke! So, you cannot afford pricey new-fangle tools. But you can refurbish what you have. You can repurpose what you have. You can re-evaluate how you're using what you have. Might it be that in your eagerness to do things the way it has always been done with tools you often witnessed being used to get them done you overlooked or never noticed a whole bunch of other effective tools you own. Perhaps you've never unziipped your 'sweet kisses' bag. See what's in there. Perhaps you've never unlocked your rusty 'what I really do well' box. Take a look in there. Perhaps you've been so busy working like a dog, you hardly took a breath deep enough to peek into your pouch of creative imagination, or to sharpen your blunted interactions and exchanges. Work like you're broke, not like a dog. What do you want your legacy to be? Why? What will you begin doing differently to make that a reality? Do that. Open your gone-broke tool box. You've got good stuff in there. And for goodness sakes stop working like a dog - chasing tails! Embrace its passion, its devotion, its adorable fixation.

This episode's fresh new lens is lust: def - "have a passion for, hunger for, strong desire, craving, uninhibited drive; sexuality." (Which of LIFE'S virtues would you consider a counterpoint to lust? 100 points. To compare your answer see Flight Of The Fused Monkeys - Listen to it - Read It.)

L-U-S-T : rise to the level of your gift; drive at the speed of your passion. FEEL.

Re-evaluate your core values.

Re-evaluate your 'market' value.

Re-evaluare your shared values

You will be better and do better when you know better!



Malleable. Flexible. Adaptable. Who are you? Where are you? What are you working to get done? Know your environment. Know your element. Know your energy. Rather be malleable than brittle. Your ability to be malleable, flexible, adaptable, will be NO GREATER than the potential of your enviornment, your element and your energy. You are as brittle as your values: your core values and your shared values. You can BE LIMITLESS, but never more than the boundaries of your values. There is faith. There is hope. There is love. Boundless.




The clock chimes. Then minutes tick away. The clock chimes again. Then minutes tick away. The clock chimes again. Then minutes tick away. The clock chimes again. Then minutes tick away. The clock chimes again. Then minutes tick away. The clock chimes again. Then minutes tick away. The clock chimes again. Then minutes tick away. The clock chimes.


Take Action

"Know what you own. Understand what you claim. Believe you can achieve what you conceive then call it by its name. Mine! The extent to which you have this clarity of mind, this purity of understanding, this strength of belief, you have the fire, the fuel, the impetus, the passion, the determination, the willpower you require to pursue and retrieve your truest desire. But do not claim what does not belong to you. It will not keep you . . . it will suffer you but for only so long."

Riding Moby Dick



You are valued. You are important. What you experience is important. Your intention matters. You are a whole being. You are a true wonder. You diminish yourself whenever you pit valued elements of who you are against vital elements of who you are: your intuitive self against your intellectual self, your rational self against your emotional self, your gut against your heart against your head. Don't be put at war against yourself: you are a masterpiece. An intricate being. Human!

How do YOU do it in the face of stares, jeers and smears?

Life: it is a dance. It gets better with practice; its music is in your heart and in your soul and in your blood and in your bones. Life; it is a dance. It gets better with practice. You have a partner – your spirit. You can have a party if you like, but choose smartly who you invite, for life – your life – is a dance. It gets better with practice, unless you stop the music or so crowd your dance floor there is no space to move or be moved within it. Explore. Yes, life; it is a dance. It gets better with practice until the dance becomes the dancer and the dancer becomes the dance and life and all of existence becomes a singular flow. Yes, life; it is a dance. It gets better with practice. Dance.

Meditate. Reflect and ruminate on the tree of gratitude. Be still. Listen. Do not make noise. Be calm. Pay attention. Be still. And know. Be still. Be still. Be still. And know! Meditate. Reflect.

Out beyond ideas of right doing and wrong doing there is a field. I'll meet you there.

on Audible on Apple (iTunes) on Amazon

The Great Teller shares An Epic Truth

Across the nation and around the world there is a long rumble.

It is a rumble so loud it strikes ready ears as a distant clap of a fierce thunder. It is a rumble so low, it rides beneath the noise of a thousand human fears; it can no longer be heard. Fear of flight, fear of heights, fear of sand, fear of snow, fear of monsters in the closet, fear of bugs in the pillow, fear of cats, fear of bats, fear of strangers at the door, fear of being lost, fear of being laughed at, fear of being stuck in the toilet bowl, fear of whites, fear of blacks, fear of browns, blues and yellows, fear of nakedness, fear of the unknown, fear of being hurt.


2:26 AM - The Gathering

Smile. Live. Love. Laugh. Look. Listen. Learn. Be awesome. You are powerful beyond measure. You are not alone. You can do all things. I am you. You are me. We are one. Keep Sharing.

Standard problem-solving steps repeated: 1) Understand the problem. 2) Devise a workable plan to solve the problem. 3) Test your plan where applicable. 4) Implement the plan. 5) Interpret the results. 6) Use that feedback.

Something to Consider: Differentiated human faculties: perception, will, reason, imagination, memory, intuition! Be still. Know. Uncover. Discover. Recover. Employ them smartly: perception, will, reason, imagination, memory, intutition! We learn from each other; that much better with meaningful connections. Be a part of something much bigger than yourself. A more complete understanding and considered application of our four series concepts - break-even, surplus, deficit and debt - to valued aspects of our relationships will dramatically transform our interactions and exchanges. How can you specifically improve your interactions and exchanges so that they are more profitable to you, to your community, to the universe? How can you create surplus and use your surplus profitably - holistically? - (A Place Called Ah.)
