“Will Says” began as a syndicated humor column and cartoon commentary that has evolved to include Will’s observations on human nature and success in both photographic and blog-style forms. This section is a compilation of everything “Will Says”, as he takes to the road and discovers the Simple Sense that makes America great.
Well looks like we got the first black Eagle Scout… Only took a little over 100 years to make that happen.
That’s not too bad considering It took a little over 200 years to elect a black president.
If the Boy Scout was Gay they probably would have tied!
Maybe this is not just lately and maybe this is nothing new… But Politicians never seem to agree with each other anymore. Even if one day a politician says “I hate WAR!” the next day he’ll change his mind and start a fight!
Politics is just a one-way street ending in a dead-end & politicians are just an accident waiting to happen.
Hey folks my latest book is out! and some time this year this book will hit the theater circuit in my one man show “A Crackpots Potshot on American Politics”
Will Roberts has retained the wit and country mannerisms of Will Rogers, both on stage and in his writings. The daily articles on world events and politics are as typical of our times as Rogers’s daily sayings and Sunday articles of his day. I know you will enjoy the way Roberts has kept the legacy of a great journalist, skilled roper, actor, and an American icon in his …

Cell phone calls should be a personal affair.
It doesn’t matter if it is a business associate or your closest friend on the other line, do not subject others to your dirty laundry. Keep your voice down and try to find a low-key location if you must speak in public places, like a street or restaurant. It amazes me how loud people can be when talking on the phone out in public, which just screams, “Hey, I’m super needy and want everyone to know I exist.”
Be courteous to both friends and strangers alike by not forcing them to hear the details of your break-up or business negotiations. Move to a different spot, or don’t talk at that time. Really, we’re just not that into you.
Also, please say, “Excuse me,” if you must take a call in front of others. People just answer there phones now even though they may have been mid-sentence with a friend or family member at a restaurant. Show courtesy to the person you are with by pardoning yourself first. But better yet, show the person you are with that they are truly important by silencing your phone and letting the call go to voicemail.
Facebook is a great platform for promotion and connecting with others. In business, you cannot ignore this force. Facebook reports that there are now over 1 billion active users each month. This is a huge opportunity, but you need to keep in mind WHY people use Facebook.
First, people thrive off the chance to spotlight their “identity.” I am putting that in quotes because what people showcase is the brightest and shiniest version of themselves. Facebook is a venue for incredible self expression, but it is a combination of who a person is and how that person wants to be perceived.
There was actually an interesting article about how Facebook can make some people depressed because it mostly exposes a user to all the great things that are happening in the lives of others, which can make some people feel like losers compared to these brightest and shiniest versions of others. These depressed individuals were not able to realize how Facebook can distort reality, but I digress . . .
With this desire to self express and create an identity, people take great care in selecting what groups to join, pages to “like” and photos to tag. Each action is a part of this online self.
People also use Facebook to connect to others.
Now, it is critical to view your presence on Facebook with these motivations in mind. You need to present yourself, your product, or your service in a way that will entice people to want to make you part of their identity.

In business it is important to have a mission statement. This is a moral compass, an overarching ideal that is to shape the direction of the company. Similarly, individuals are often encouraged to come up with a personal mission statement to describe what you want to focus on, what you want to accomplish, and who you want to become in a specified area of your life. It’s intention is to help you to focus in on your priorities and serves as a reminder of your purpose.
I like the overall idea, but since I also believe Less is More Success, I think that it should be a Simple Sense Sentence, or even just a few words rather than a statement that can end up so convaluted and filled with lofty, flowery language that it is not readily applicable. I like the idea of a sentence that has immediate meaning for you and that you can use toward moving forward with action. It should be something that directly helps you to put your priorities into practice.
First, decide what is most important to you right now. You can make it for the coming year, like a resolution, but maybe scale it back to your greatest priority over the coming months (Remember that Less is More). Make sure it is something that YOU really want to achieve.
Once you set your priority and discarded the clutter, then it is time for your Simple Sense Sentence. This is where you identify the value behind your goal and craft it into a type affirmation or mantra.
If you want to lose weight, then your Simple Sense Sentence could be “Create Lasting Health.” If you want to increase your time spent with family, then your Simple Sense Sentence might look something like “Be Part of the Family.” If you want to improve on a specific relationship, then you might create a Simple Sense Sentence like “Be Aware” or “Show Compassion.” If at work you want to get your employees to work more by allowing them more ownership, then your Simple Sense Sentence may be “Empower Others.”
Okay, okay, I think you get the general picture.
Then look at your life and determine what you already do to contribute to your priority. Could you use any of these current achievements as a launching pad to ultimately reach your goal? It is always easiest to build on success and to recognize those things that you are already doing right. The next step is to create a subgoal that can be completed next. You need to create a task that promotes immediate action, and again, when I say ACTION it must be in the physical world and not just thoughts in your head. You need to DO something.
When you accomplish your subgoal, then move on to the next immediate action that moves you toward your priority. Remember to celebrate each little success.
Each day you should do something toward your ultimate goal. Less is more, so do not try to do too much too fast. Slow and steady wins the race. Use your Simple Sense Sentence to empower you. It will keep you on track and provide the inspiration needed to take action on a daily basis toward your goal and ultimate success.
While traveling by air lately I have noticed a new phenomenon. When the plane lands people from the back are bolting up the aisle to get to the front. They are totally disregarding others and pushing to get off first. They are completely ignoring the timeless rule of one aisle at a time starting with the front.
Now, people come to ride on plains for a variety of reasons, some positive and others negative. I try to keep this in mind when I see someone acting a bit “boarish” – like rushing to the front of the airplane. Maybe this person is rushing to a funeral, or needs to get to the hospital to witness the birth of a child. However, if a drastic situation like this happens to you, then talk to the flight attendant and see if you can be moved to the front.
Otherwise, we need to remember that on a plane we become part of a community of passengers. It is an “All for One and One for All” situation where if we are courteous to others, then our experience will be that much easier and better.
There is a code of behavior to airplane travel that is in the interest of all. Take your turn. Let the people in front go first. And if you are not ready to quickly get off the plane, then stay seated until you get yourself together. You don’t want to be that person who bolts up into the aisle, jabbing on the phone and making everyone wait while he or she gathers belongings together.
Remember to use Simple Sense.
Let’s talk about the common reason we hold ourselves back from pursuing what we want . . . FEAR.
I feel like this is an important topic to address since we are starting a new year. There is a poignant symbolism in shedding off the old year to start anew – there could not be a better time to consider what keeps us in darkness and prevents us from committing to take action in setting our priorities and bringing Simple Sense to our lives.
Do you have a fear of rejection and worry about what other think of you? Do you ever underestimate or undersell your abilities to yourself or others? Do you prefer to stay within a comfort zone? Do you hide your feelings? Do you just let things happen rather than take control? Do you procrastinate? Do you lack motivation to start projects? Do you engage in excessive drinking, smoking, gambling, shopping, etc. and then feel guilt? Do you operate on auto-pilot and continue the same tired routines even though they may produce stress and an overall feeling that you are not getting what you want done?
Answering Yes to any of those questions is a sign that fear is lurking. It doesn’t matter if it is fear of rejection, fear of the unknown, fear of change or fear of failure. Fear is fear. And the presence of fear, if left unaddressed, transforms and grows and ends in paralysis. Worse yet, when we exist in fear and don’t confront it, then what we fear is often exactly what we attract. This creates a vicious circle causing even greater paralysis.
We know that fear is not just emotional, but physically impacts us too since it is tied to the Fight or Flight response. This means that fear directly impacts our health, along with preventing us from finding the success and happiness that accompanies doing what we truly want.
Fortunately, applying some basic Simple Sense can provide that life-saving rope that keeps you from the physical and emotional quicksand. Approaching less, instead of trying to attend to the bombardment of MORE MORE MORE, helps to transform fear into power. By focusing on your priorities and eliminating your clutter, by single-asking, you are enabling your true power and potential to be unleashed. By working with your priorities and agreeing to learn from both successes and failures, then you begin to break the cycle of fear. You are no longer reacting, instead you are an active and responsible participant in your own life.
Struggles and feelings that life is just too hard transform into adventure and opportunities. Choosing to be responsible for your priorities and to take action means you can handle what comes your way. There is no room for fear in that mentality!
