BMW (& not the car!) Cool blog from Marc Pitman

January 22, 2018

If not the car, what is BMW? Bitch. Moan. Whine. ! ! ! ! ! ! !

YES! I so believe in BMW…NOT the car kind!

I just love this KICK from Marc, the Fundraising Coach.

Several excerpts to entice you to read the whole darn Kicker blog…

For the next 10 minutes, all you’re allowed to do is bitch, moan, and whine. (Imagine, permission to do that. Hey, Tom Ahern, give me permission. Oh, that’s right…I just take permission and he rolls his eyes…albeit graciously!)

I set the timer and started yelling at God….I went on and on. It felt kind of risky. Was a BMW session a legitimate form of prayer? Was I allowed to talk this way?

But at the same time it felt really good. I went on as long as I could and then a bit longer. When I strated repeating myself, I looked at the timer. I still had four minutes left.

The crazy thinig? If I hadn’t done a BMW session, I would’ve spent my entire car 45-minute drive stewing in negativity.
