- 1. Try To Be Excellent ! Method # 1
Welcome ! Salute The Day !
A Beautiful Day Somewhere In The World. Include Yourself. Be A Part Of It. It's All Up To You !
Now Is The Perfect Time !
Consider Those Good Ideas You Hold. Those Good Ideas, Those Plans Sitting On the Back Shelf. Those
Field Trips You Are Waiting To Take... Consider Your Whole Life, Choose Some Great Idea, And Go For It!
Now, Is The Perfect Time !
- 2: TEYU: Touch Everything You Own ! Method # 2
Twice a year, on 5/31 and on 12/31. Cleanse your life, renew and re-establish your life. Touch every square
inch of your life. Touch every item. Discard the unused or unnecessary. Remove all clutter to see more
clearly. Be lean and mean (passionate)! Notice those things that you have not even touched in the last 6
months, or perhaps used only once, and decide if it should be placed in storage, given away, recycled, or
thrown out. Make more room to see clearly and expand your horizons. Repair, replace, or adjust your life
until it is something excellent, and then try harder. The effort may take years, but eventually your world will
grow better and larger, just for seeing more clearly.
Your life is one small move at a time, just like a chess game. Use your head, but follow your heart. Live with
reason, passion, strength, and kindness, and do what it takes, to try to be excellent.
Consider, evaluate, dispose, recycle, re-position, elevate, re-save, upgrade, renew, clean, store somewhere
else, etc. Or, don't wait until those dates. Start today! Start now! Now being the perfect time. The more time
you waste making excuses, the less time you have to work on it. Touching and evaluating every item, every
space, every aspect of your life may take years, but a better understood, simpler, more organized life is
better for you and for those around you. Not to mention that the journey is reward in itself.
Try to work from a base of wisdom and efficiency, to reach larger and better goals. Give your self a chance,
plan your self a way, an excellentway, to make your world a better and simpler place, a more excellent
place, and by example, encourage those around you.
Be strong, wise, and loving.
You are helpless among others, except for two things:
What you give, what you create.
What you become, what you are.
You cannot make someone love you, be honest with you, or dream with you, except by example. Wonder
fiercely! Create and build constantly! Clean everything! Stop being timid. Try To Be Excellent ! Even,
The kind words or actions of a single person can change the entire day, the week, sometimes a lifetime of
others. Be good to your friends, nice to strangers, extraordinary to the ones you love. Love is its own world.
You can be a part of this world, but it is not something you can really own. You can destroy it easily with
selfishness, fear, or lack of surrender, but it always will demand certain actions, in any situation.
Love has a direction. If you truly love someone or if someone truly loves you, they will act in a predictable
way. Otherwise it is something other than love. Most people trade, barter, or simply find more furniture to add
to their living room, always making their world better for themselves using you, never loving you further than
their own nose.
Try to be truly loving. Be a part of this force rather than using the words to your own ends. Remind the
person you love with a kiss. If alone, remember that someone is waking, looking for you. Give them
something excellent to find. Try To Be Excellent! Try to be as loving and magical as you can be. You will
surprise yourself if you try. Don't do excuses, don't give up and don't give in. Give yourself an Excellentway(
day to day.
- 3. SIAT: Store It All Together ! Method # 3
It is a common and ordinary idea to store our things and our accumulated life around us, without ever
thinking twice about it.
However, consider storing most of your things together in one place, a Master Storage Area. Outfit this place
with chrome metal or stainless steel storage racks and plastic tool boxes. Keep most of your items tools,
hobbies, projects, toiletries, etc., neatly packaged in plastic tool boxes, or larger containers that you plainly
mark. with 1" wide weather resistant labels, or even stainless steel tags with ball chains attached to each
plastic tool box or container.
One specific Master Storage Area: This place should be clean and welcoming, with the necessary security
and even an alarm system to keep it safe.
You can stop being a Pack Rat, and surrounding yourself with items all around you, stuffing the nearest
drawer or cabinet with things, many times seldom used again. All kinds of furniture accumulating dust on top
and underneath, taking up valuable space, holding mostly unused items.
Keep the most encouraging, sentimental, or necessary items closest to you in some kind of half open
container. Take the rest out of your view, so you can see more clearly. Space is something too, and affects
your being just as much as clutter, so create and use it in a positive way. Feel more enriched with less, be
more organized and efficient ! Remove most of the storage areas that surround you now and move them
into one main dedicated reference space.
Let this Master Storage space be something you visit, retrieve something to use, return when finished, and
go through twice a year to delete items unnecessary. Instead of living in a storage area, yourself being just
one more item there amid the clutter, design a true living space.
Surprise yourself, guests, and friends, with your love of simple spaces, love of life, and your dedication to
living your life in some kind of clean wonderful space, keeping the daily clutter of life somewhere else.
Set a more modern, future path, like the Rivian R1T electric pickup truck. Something new and different,
better, improved, with clean modern lines and a dedicated wiser, future looking philosophy.
- 4. Work Excellent Projects ! Method # 4
Reach as far as you can with all that you can. Reach a little further than is possible, stretch to try and grasp
that world just beyond your reach. Keep a good hopeful spirit, try to encourage yourself. Believe in yourself,
that you have the power to make things better, to create better worlds, to help others around you, to be
extraordinary ! And you will ! Keep to the plan. Despite those things that keep getting in your way Lack of
time, Lack of funds, Lack of help, Lack of inspiration, Lack of confidence. Just keep to the plan.
Remember those projects that you never finished? Remember finding some evidence of your old efforts on
some project that you abandoned? Remember how you smiled at yourself for all your time and effort you
once devoted, and your sadness at not trying harder, and not finishing it?
Remember what you have. An idea that perhaps no one else has quite the same, and even if many people
share the same thought, how many will actually struggle with it into reality?
Way To Help:
1. In Your Face. Place your project, your notes, physical items, always about you, in your sight, with you in your
car, in your pocket, purse, memos on your phone, etc. If it is within your immediate presence, it is more likely it
will be considered by you.
2. List Next To Do. List the next step you need to accomplish. When you come back to working on this
project, you see the next thing or group of things that need time and effort.
3. Be Patient. Don't be too impatient. Spend days, months, years, on your idea. Many great ideas evaporate at
the first failure points.
Remember that failure is a byproduct of trying, and almost nothing fails to fail along the way. The sacrifice
you make in waiting, being persistent, having hope despite obstacles, and keeping a wider view, the struggle
itself, is your badge of honor, your path to a final success.
4. Believe. Believe that it can be. Success is the door that finally opens, after failing at many, many, other
doors. However, if you don't believe the door before you will open, you will not even reach for it. Magical
things happen to those who believe. Our minds flirt from one idea to another, there being something good
and creative, even necessary, about it, and something negative and distracting, even demeaning there too.
Most of our projects succeed because they have occupied the most of our time and efforts combined with
other favorable conditions.
Persistence is often the key, to supply some kind of dedicated attention, focus, thought and consideration to
your goal, no matter how small, applied over and over, until the idea takes on a life and substance of its' own.
A planned discipline, a system, that can be applied in the face of hardship, makes the effort easier. Decide a
goal, lay a path, apply a system, be flexible, creative. Do whatever it takes as long as it is honorable, but be
persistent. Every so often look back at how far you have come, and celebrate your place, wherever you are.
Because you are making it happen. Your setbacks are just a part of your success. Take encouragement
there and then watch where you're going, jump ahead, take the next step, and have a great time !
- 5. B.O.E Projects, Best On Earth Projects, Method #5
Strive for B.O.E Project Result. Best On Earth Project.
Anyone can duplicate the common and ordinary. Truth be told, this is often good enough for most days and
nights, and for most persons who compare a project or specific possibility, and work it into a mostly
adequate item or result. The profit first mentality of the world demands this small, petty, and selfish method
and a lack of pride and dis-interest in quality produces the common and mediocre world found all around
However, why stop? Why not consider, not just the good project result, but an excellent project result? Work
for the best possible Earth, the best possible human existence, the best possible method or item.
Compete with others, and ultimately, yourself, for the Best On Earth Design of your project. Then attempt to
build your ideas into a Best On Earth Project!
The cost is irrelevant in this consideration. The time and effort required is irrelevant. The impossibility of it all
must be ignored, not considered except only in passing. When these considerations and negative
philosophies fill your mind, there is no room to be creative, to have hope, to imagine, or to create a Best On
Earth Project. Let no one else cloud your thoughts or your honorable ambitions, especially, yourself!
Seek to be the exceptional project. Attempt the extraordinary. Enable the possibility. Build something good,
then make it something great, then make it something extraordinary, and something truly excellent!
You can, if you try! You will, if you devote yourself to it! You may, find yourself laughing at it all! Only then will
you know that you are on the right path!
When some crazed but beautiful idea breaks that plane of reality and becomes real and possible, first in your
mind, and then in the world, smile at it all! Excellent! Blaze the trail ahead until it is something extraordinary to
you, some lasting beauty to its design and something new and excellent there before you!
Create something Best On Earth, and enjoy the struggle as you go! Laugh with the others who are laughing
at you, but be serious your commitment, your dedication to it! One single thought is often the difference
between success and failure. Be strong, wise, and loving! Keep an excellent attitude!
Your efforts are appreciated! We salute you and those who fight the good fight! The fight not just for the
mediocre, the good, but for the Excellent!
- 6. Ride The Waves, Find the Shore. Method # 6
Ride the days of mediocrity, but eventually look and find the shore.
One can not just dream, plan, and then conquer a project, in one swift move, at least most of the time... There
will be days of inactivity, waiting for others, waiting for more funding, looking for ways to bridge that gap from
one idea or phase to the other... There is often experimenting along the way, deciding the most appropriate
path and necessary revision and evolution. Take some hope in the past, where you remember other
projects and the same frustrating times. Such inactivity, such waiting, is part of the overall design. Don't go
crazy, and don't bother others in some fanatic way. Smile at those excellent projects you have completed in
After your success you will forget all the hardship and bask in the morning sun, the glory of it all. So too, these
current hard and frustrating times will become faint memories. Keep thinking and working other projects,
consider the world around you, what other excellent things you might do. Do something physical, some kind
of hard work or enjoy a concert, a movie, or dinner. Ride the waves without doubting you will reach the
shore. You will find success, without knowing exactly the entire path before you, but by conquering one
wave at a time, letting yourself drift with time, and keeping a steady and resolute pace.
- 7. Consider An Excellent Item. Method # 7
Consider an excellent item to encourage further excellent efforts.
Build on the excellent things around you, your excellent attitude, your excellent accomplishments. Settle for
no less. Take one minute to look at an excellent item, or to consider some excellent accomplishment. See it
from every angle, touch it, lift it and turn it in your hands, or consider and remember it in your mind. Think of
nothing else and let nothing else distract you for 60 seconds.
Mold your life something like this, the next thing you will do, the next plans or project before you. Follow the
excellent example before you, and build from there. Take the best and expand on it. When you are
surrounded by poor examples as we all are on a daily basis, try to ignore and dismiss them.
Instead, consider what would be good, and then demand what would be excellent.
This is why when we are surrounded by the mediocre and mundane, the regular or less than excellent,
we have no need to create something more excellent. The space is all ready taken, the place all ready
complete, and good enough...
Do what it takes to fight the mediocre, and promote the most excellent. Let no one stop your excellent
attempts, especially yourself! Surround yourself with an excellent world, constantly making it better, and
then reach further into the world around you and make it more excellent, despite the others, and despite
the obstacles you see ahead..
Have an excellent day! If fate stops you in your tracks, help make it an excellent day for someone else.
Your day will come. Ex Days To You!
- 8. Create Excellentway Lifetime Systems! Method # 8
If you decide to be more excellent about your life, to take the time and trouble to consider Trying To Be
Excellent, then also consider setting up Excellentway Lifetime Systems.
"Find And Keep An Excellent Way!" - Hawk
Many things about life are repeated day to day. Set up a Lifetime System that represents an Excellentway
to do this thing. Take as much time and trouble, money, sweat and design, to set it up in the most correct
and excellent manner and method.... Then, good for a lifetime !
Almost any manner of living that might be repeated, can be struggled into an Excellentway Lifetime System.
For example, Hawk and The Excellentway Society created the Hawk Cleaning Station (TM) as a Lifetime
System for cleaning and fighting germs. You create a permanent cleaning station in a new or existing cabinet
in your kitchen, bathroom, laundry, basement, or garage. Easy instructions and all the tools needed to place a
hole in the bottom of the cabinet, install a dispenser and mount up to 350 paper towels inside.
The worlds' next indispensable appliance! Add three or more spray bottles with cleaning, polishing, waxing,
etc., solutions, and you are ready for instant cleaning!
As another example, Hawk and The Excellentway Society also created the Hawk Cleaning Bucket(TM),
which can be stored in a closet and used from there, or removed and carried to any spill or project!
Once set up, good for a lifetime !
The Hawk Cleaning Bucket(TM) has 200 dispensable paper towels, 4 spray bottles to fill with selected
cleaning, waxing or other fluids, a few good tools, screwdrivers, adjustable pliers, squeegee, and any other
small tools you might want to add, with stainless steel brackets inside to store the tools, and brackets on the
outside to hang the tools for easy access while you work.
Since cleaning is a necessity, and even more vital now during the 2020 Germ War, set up an Excellentway
Lifetime System, to get it done quickly and efficiently. Good For Life! Good For A Lifetime !
- 9. COMMENT: Weapons, Pepper Spray:
Self defense is a basic human instinct and requirement.
However, any weapon can be misused, or even used against you.
Be wise in how you carry and handle any weapon, and know exactly how and when and why it might be
used. Get enough training and expertise to safely own, store, and possibly use such weapons. Some people
just do not have the emotional stability, the drug free lifestyle, the legal knowledge and common sense to
keep or possibly use pepper spray weapons , or more deadly ones. Please honestly and wisely consider the
option of keeping dangerous weapons legally on your person or in your household. If you cannot provide
the 24 hour respect, responsibility, and commitment such weapons demand, they should not be a part of
Quick decisions sometimes must be made. Move! When crap hits the fan, retreat! If you can, gather a
second or a few seconds to think, then respond immediately. Retreat, And Consider Further, or Act!
Respond in the most correct and honorable way that you can...
Many persons cannot even reliably drive a vehicle, let alone manage other weapons. Please be on guard
and immediately report any persons driving in a reckless or impaired manner. The world around us,
before us, all that we see, is part of us. This is our world. This is our responsibility. Watch over the world
Take care of it. Be excellent about it.
All of us upon this Earth share our little spaces with the others. Some people are so deranged and evil,
nothing can thwart or contain them... But others, those who gather and assemble their thoughts towards
some possible mean or evil idea, building a desperate revenge of some kind... Those others, may be
This is where some simple kindness or attempt to help may disrupt their path, some single act, or some
magnanimous gesture uncalled for, some attention to their pain, may save us all.
If you are in a place where crime is so common that almost everyone carries a weapon, perhaps you should
find another place. Surround yourself with good people where weapons are kept in a safe, and not stuffed
between the cushions and ready for instant use. Wars have been fought, men and women have died, so
that we can live without constant worry.
Be good to those around you. Excellent to your loved ones, kind to others, and prepared for any possible
evil. Make a daily attempt to be strong, wise, and loving, to be Excellent. We are all in this together, and
together we grow to build better worlds.
- 10. COMMENT: The Word, Excellence...
Yes, just a word, but the idea often ignored.
In this modern world, quality efforts are seldom encouraged.
It is often more about quickly getting something done, doing it for less, letting it be good enough, and making
the most money. Lasting beauty, quality of result, enlightened design, hardly considered.
We have mostly lost our pride in doing an excellent job or no job at all. Craftsmanship and quality are just
words of salesmen, harping cheap and inadequate products.
Let the word "excellent" be more than just a word.
In a world where mediocrity and almost anything is good enough, say "No, IDTE" ! I Demand The Excellent.
Let it frame your life. Settle for nothing less. Demand the excellent, and do what it takes, to make your world,
our world, something more excellent. Not gold plated or diamond encrusted, but simple, solid, well made
Make the world something more excellent, the things around you, your world, your self !
Your efforts are appreciated. Thank you.
- 11. COMMENT: Get More Efficient...
If one's life is nothing more than one project after another rise, eat, do what must be done with a docile heart ,
do that which nags at you and claws at your sanity, also doing those things, those actions and projects that
make you smile, that brings you somewhere forward and helps your soul, creates the world you wish to
know one step at a time, etc., then one can make a very conscious decision to build a system, an
Excellentway Lifetime System that helps you on your way. Create a system to do more with less effort, and
gain more confidence by following best of life practices.
When you have an idea, where does it go and what comes of it? Most often some brilliant flash of inspiration,
some little comment to ourselves or another, and then gone again... Only to often re-appear when
something triggers your mind, a place, a word, a vision before you...
Note it immediately. Then place it in a certain place. Then go to that place to consider it. Then assign the
project its own space. Add and subtract ideas and actions to this project, assemble the physical items it
demands, experiment, and give it a life. Then nurture it until it becomes something excellent. Then done, or at
least done for now, enjoy your excellent result! Stand back and admire your hard work! Embrace the thrill of
something excellent finished and there before you!
Your life nothing more than one project after another. Assemble a few projects before you, then 50, then
100, then perhaps, a few thousand... Keep in mind the projects you envision and act upon, which create the
path of your life, and represent the life that you lead. Envision your own path, or it will be decided for you.
Move towards the excellent light, the warmth, an excellent place that is the life of you, that is your best soul
expressed there in word and deed. Live in an excellent manner! Be Excellent about your life!
- 12. COMMENT: One Small Step Method
Train yourself to celebrate small steps. All of life is one small step at a time, like a chess game. One attempts
to consider the whole game, chooses some kind of strategy, and plays in that direction. However,
circumstances often do not favor your choices. In that case it is often easier to just give up. However,
consider a better and more glorious accomplishment, denying the obvious, ignoring the reality, turning from
the overwhelming odds against you, and just pushing on!
Tighten your hood around you, zip your coat tighter, and just keep on trying! Not stupid, not afraid, not taking
the easy path, but turning into the wind and struggling forward one step and then another, and then one
Look around you! The world is full of people who have given up and stand there pitiful before you. But for
one more step, one more piece of hope, one more ridiculous attempt, success would have been theirs.
When the storm is against you, see yourself from afar. Across the desolate face of Earth, all those who have
tried and failed... They encourage you to try harder and not to fail, not to give in. Their voices command you
The goal is near and safe.
- 13. COMMENT: Layers Of Detail Excellence
Apply one layer of Excellence to your project, idea, method. You create something excellent and are happy
with the results. Then consider some detail of it, or the thing as a whole asking yourself what would be even
better, what might be even more excellent?
It is like considering your kitchen floor. You clean and wax the floor. Then you notice the accumulation of dirt
and grime in the corners and along the edges. You take a tool and remove the dirt and accumulation. You
notice the nearby wood work is worn. You apply a fresh coat
of polyurethane stain to it. You consider a new floor in itself, something tile perhaps warmed from below... etc.
Apply a layer of excellence to your project. Then go back and apply another, and then another... Use your
imagination and your creativity! Consider what would be good, then demand the excellent! Like waving a
magic wand... Work your magic in Excellent Layers. First one layer, then another, then another! Imagine
yourself standing there upon a simple Earth, with the power just discovered within you, waving your arms
and performing magical deeds! There is an art and magic to imagination, determination, and dedication. One
layer by itself something excellent, but multiple layers, just EXTRAORDINARY! Find yourself exhausted in the
attempt, but smiling from your good work! Something excellent in the world!
- 14. COMMENT: Excellence Demands Courage, Denies The Timid!
Voltaire said something like, "Better Is The Enemy Of Good" If you are trying to do something more excellent,
the current good and good enough will fight to be changed. Others will attempt to keep the same and the
mediocre in existence and fight you and your efforts. Be Courageous! Excellence favors the bold and the
daring! Plan carefully, and examine all detail, but then stand firm with what you know and believe! The timid
own the past, but the courageous own the future! Listen to your instincts! Ignore those of small and petty
nature, that deny the importance or possibility of the dream! Own the world around you and make it
something better, despite others, despite all obstacles! Be strong, wise, and loving in your efforts but
persistent and without equal in your attempts. Let the others be timid, afraid of error and ridicule, while you
stand there smiling with confidence!
- 15. COMMENT: Excellent Outcomes Favor The Prepared!
Create stockpiles of water, food, and emergency equipment, before any possible natural or man-made
disaster. Be ready in advance to help determine a more excellent outcome. When major events occur, you
are on your own, most of the time. If some event happened tomorrow, and you were on your own, would
you be strong and confident in your actions, or pitiful and waiting in despair? Be ready for all kinds of weather
and predictable troubles,. Find yourself more at peace and confident in your future, ready to help yourself
and others, when a major event occurs.
- 16. COMMENT: Deny The Obvious...
Sure, it seems impossible, or would cost too much, would take too long, and they won't let you build it! Ha!
Ha! Ha! Just keep trying! You must look back from where you envision your excellent item, method, or
option, and then once there gazing at something beautiful, ignore all the dirt, dust, and sweat, it will take to get
there... Defy And Deny The Impossible! D And D! Impossible is just an opinion! Move yourself each day, just a
little closer to your vision! One single thought can change the world! Look sadly at those around you who
refuse to dream and imagine, and insist that you join them in their sad and ugly world. Make something
beautiful happen and they will be the first who praise you afterwards. As you walk the world, you swing
wildly away from your critics, and as your cape brushes against their faces, you smile again knowing better.
Not once, but then once again, and once again more, proving the excellence of something to others must
be done by action and example, not with mere words. Claim your dream by dedicated effort, persistence,
and the magic and hope within you!
Have an excellent time!
- 17. COMMENT: Getting Up To Speed, And Beyond!
So, if you can consider your life, it being half full with some kind of history, and half empty with some kind of
How much time and energy, life passion, do you apply day to day? Where does it go every day?
Most of us seem to spend at least 12 hours each day, just getting to the next possible day, sleeping, eating,
having some kind of shelter, etc... Then many of us spend at least an additional 10 hours trading and bartering
with work and money to acquire the next 12 hours of eating, sleeping and having a safe and positive place to
So we have about 2 hours a day for other projects. However, everything is really a project, and many of the
same types of projects are repeated over and over for a lifetime, such as those that take up about 22 hours
of each of our Earth days.
However, we can be more efficient with the hours we have.
First: Spend as much time and effort as necessary to set up Lifetime Systems, which when incorporated into
your life, increase your life awareness and efficiency. This may take years to accomplish, or with some help,
possibly a matter of days. We are not talking about being the Flash, and moving faster than others, although
appropriate on occasion. It is more like removing ideas and methods that slow your life by attempting to
replace them with excellent thoughts and considerations that increase your potential and the width and
breadth of your very existence. Seeing not just that before you, but also lifting your head, and seeing beyond.
Instead of just simply gazing at things, and watching others and the world move past you, engage with and
own the world before you and around you. Move with the world, and adopt a a positive forward philosophy,
an Excellentway Life Method.
Second: Getting up to speed. It is not just arranging each and every item in your world for its best use and
optimum effect, employing such Lifetime Systems. It is also about turning up the speed, adding the power
when the road is open and clear ahead, calling to you. When your systems are in place and projects set up,
apply a greater intensity, engage the warp drive, amp it up!
Third: And beyond! It is a natural progression of the human to adopt greater and greater obstacles and
attempt to conquer them. Take great leaps! Let the slow thinkers and negative ones keep on talking. Listen
politely and with respect. Then slowly move away, ignoring their negative criticism and their very words. Turn
and apply all of your power and forces to your dreams and goals, ignoring the impossible truth, creating your
own valid reality!
- 18. COMMENT: Line them up, knock them out!
We are just human. Not an excuse for mean or evil of course... But not every day is full of energy, confidence
and ambition. Some days are just hard to get up to freeway speed. No matter how many thousands of
projects before you, however, they can can be efficiently served. Work something somehow on a project,
move it forward in some manner, address it like a page in a book. Read something into it, do something
about it, if only a thought or inclination, but interact with it in some manner.
Line things up. Put the pieces together in one place, whether thoughts or physical items. Ready the next step.
You don't necessarily have to take every step of every project when it is before you. Like a stairway. Lay the
steps before you, but then consider and decide your movements... Up the stairs, taking the stairs to the left, to
the right, down the other stairs, across from you... Shades of Harry Potter. Line things up and ready the next
step, build the stair waiting for your return to it.
Then Knock them out. Those days when you have more energy than the others, when the sun is out and
shining on you, or when the moon is full... Knock down the domino's you have set up. Put the pieces
together, take the next step, quickly look to the next stair and take that one, and so on...
There are days to work quietly, deliberately, full of thought and many small actions, setting things up.
Then there are days to take that step just newly built there before you. Stand upon it and test it to its limit.
Then quickly take that other step on the other stairway, that other project waiting to be tried, then another,
and another... Put your faith in that which you have assembled.
Blaze ahead through the night! Feel that spray of water on your face from the waterfall! Swinging through
the jungle from vine to vine, screaming at the wind, and conquering time and space. The world just a blur of
action, hope, and confidence!
- 19. COMMENT: What stops you?

- 20. COMMENT: Line Of Impossible Distance
The distance between the impossible and the possible is two letters, or it might be a line with two points.
Consider that a line exists between the Impossible Point, the dream point, at one end, the beginning of a
project, and the possible accomplishment or project end, the Possible Point, at the other end.
It is interesting to note that looking from the Impossible Point there is no end in sight, and that there appears
to be an unlimited abyss before you. A line existing like a laser beam forward to which an end cannot be
seen. There is no substance to this abyss before you, it is unknown in all manners, and without meaning.
Consider then looking from the Possible Point backwards, there is a one second step of consideration
seeing all of time and all steps to this place, a well paved road of substance and meaning. from the
Possible Point back to the Impossible Point. Instead of an impossible unlimited abyss before you, it is a
simple step, a short trip backwards. In most matters, the distance back is just an instant in time, hardly
noticed and now almost insignificant.
This is why if flying saucers suddenly appeared, after a short time, they would be insignificant.
In all matters of science, and measurement however, the distance from the Impossible Point forward, or
from the Possible Point backward, is the same. From one point forward, or one point backward, it is the same
distance. Measured in time, distance, or steps, it is the same length and amount from one point to the other,
no matter which point you find yourself.
The span of time and space from the start of a project to the end of a project is the same distance whether
you look forward from the dream or backward from the accomplishment. Your interpretation at either end
changes of course, and it is in this that we confound ourselves. Since the distance is the same, but unknown
at the Impossible Point, and well known at the Possible Point, do not allow your mind to formulate the
opinion. Instead, attempt to exist in time and space on the line between the two, working on the Line Of
Impossible Distance, working to assemble dreams and knowing a future reality is close to you.
In this way the impossible becomes less a matter of fact, than it is simply, a point in time.
Smile at the ridiculous and the absurd, and be amazed. The amazing is yet possible, if you can manage
to work the Line Of Impossible Distance, instead of being trapped and held by the impossible.
21. COMMENT: Define Your View, Set The Standard For Your World
Consider that you must define your view, set the standard for the world around you, or it will be
set and provided for you. You can define your world, depending on what you accept and what
Imagine The good, Then Demand The Excellent. You will make whatever sacrifice, and pay
whatever price it takes, to set the world as you wish it to be. To design the world around you.
first and foremost where you live and the spaces you occupy day to day, night to night, every day.
Then further, considering the vehicle you use, and the garage or area where it is kept,
Then further then that, the places where you work, and then even further, the places where you
play and are entertained.
For wherever you are, where you live, where you work, and even, where you play, you can
decide how you will exist in this area, Without interfering with others or hurting people of
course. Design the world around you as something excellent, as you might have it.
You can set a standard for what you desire and demand, and then work to keep to that standard,
at least for most of the time. Exceptions or course, but most of the time, the standard you set must
be met. The excellent world around you that you declare to exist, should do so and exist in that
form, for most of the time.
For example, let's say that you and one other person live in a certain place. You don't have a
dish washer and really only use a limited amount of dish ware. Many times you just use paper
plates and dispose of them. However, you wish to avoid seeing the mess of accumulating
dishes. You decide to invent a standby area for the dishes. You place two rubberized water
holding bar mats in a drawer near the sink. After you use dishware or utensils, you can
wash them off in the hottest water available, about 120 degrees F., using a small amount of
dish soap to help, so that no food particles remain, and then deposit them in the standby
drawer on the mat.
You close the drawer so that there are no dishes in the sink or laying around on the counter.
There is now a designated stand by area for the dishware and utensils before they are to
be washed again, out of view, making the kitchen area more pleasing and freeing up
When the drawer becomes almost full, someone thoroughly washes the dishware in the
sink and allows them to dry. When dry, they are placed away and out of view in the cupboards.
Most days and nights the sink and counter will be clear and with a little bleach, extremely clean.
On occasion larger pots and pans, multiple dishes, etc., will be visible and waiting to be cleaned
in the area, but this will not be the norm.
You are actually double washing the plates and utensils, and creating a more thoroughly cleaned
plate or utensil, in addition to keeping the area clean and uncluttered.
Of course, human nature being what it is, some people will not wash the item before placing it in the
drawer. You can add a laminated luggage tag that reads: 'REMINDER: WASH FIRST ! Then Store Dishes
Here For Final Wash :)" and place it in the drawer to help remind people. LOL!
Once you have cleared up your kitchen in such manner, one might consider the utensils, themselves.
Multiple styles gathered over the years, different brands and sizes... Consider what would be excellent
in the way of flatware...
Utensils should be Stainless Steel, 18/10 or 18/8 for highest germ resistance, with few engravings
that might also help to hold germs there, perhaps a simple modern design...
Then consider how the flatware is stored in the drawer, possibly using heavy clear plastic bins to sort
and organize. Then consider the drawer itself, reset the rails so the heavy drawer tilts slightly up
instead of down when you open it, etc.
When you open your Utensil Drawer, a smile should come to your lips. Not gold or sterling silver
necessarily, but the highest quality stainless steel design, extremely clean and ready for any King
or Queen !
And so it goes, one excellent effort suggests the next, which suggests the next, etc.
Keep forming Excellentway Lifetime Systems, first closest to you, and then further into the world.
Develop Excellentway Lifetime Systems that help you to live in a more excellent style, and create a more
excellent world. Keep An Excellentway ! Proceed With Excellence !
If today is not your turn, make a path, an Excellentway, for someone else !
22. COMMENT: Never Ending Search For Excellence
If you have found some success in trying harder than others, in accomplishing things others
told you impossible, in realizing some kind of powerful self potential, then consider making a
lifetime system of it.
Instead of making some one or two things excellent, attempt to make all of your life an
excellent effort. Since most people never apply the idea of excellence to the mundane
and day to day life around them., you can practice excellence starting with your self,
and your immediate realm.
Consider making everything you touch, something more excellent than it is now.
Yes, the worn carpet beneath your feet, the door knob old and catches on your way
in and out, and whatever else, that you touch. Yes, your pillow, the bed, the clothes
you wear. Then everything you see within your realm... The pictures on the wall, the things
that surround you every day, the view outside... Then further, everywhere you go, what you
touch on your way, what you see on your way....
Then, once you encounter too many projects to handle, prioritize and select
the best projects that suit you.
This practice of excellence in action can become a Lifetime System, a way to live.
Be like the sun, on a dark and dreary day, suddenly the clouds part and the sun
appears, there you are, spreading a warming radiation, and amazing the world.
23. Comment: Extra Effort Boundary
Humans struggle to meet their day to day responsibilities and set some kind of
standard to their existence. After that any further efforts are something more,
requiring a greater struggle. It is reaching for more, instead of resting with good
enough. This is the Extra Effort Boundary. This is where good enough is
good enough. Most people slide up to this boundary and are comfortable
there, knowing that they could try harder, but are happy enough for now.
Most of us live at this boundary. A place were the world demands certain
things, we demand certain things for ourselves, and we reply and meet the
demands and suffer the consequences of our day to day lives, just the way
Now you may expect something to be said here about encouraging you to
try harder and struggle further, but of course, and you should. But of course
and you probably won't, because we all enjoy resting at the Extra Effort
Boundary. Nothing wrong with that either, or right with it either, for that matter.
The real point here, is to first acknowledge the Extra Effort Boundary, how it
behaves, and like water, seeks its own level That this is where we normally
come to rest. This is the hum of the planet, thousands and thousands of
humans, animals, even plant life, and another day for planet Earth.
Excellence often requires going through and beyond the Extra Effort
Boundary. However, you can come to realize that instead of forcing your
way to do more and to be more, to take on one more project, instead of
the EE Boundary being some concrete wall that requires an immense effort...
That you can apply small efforts, and small steps, and do so within your own
time frame... Like painting a picture that does not have to be finished by Friday.
Play with it, try one small thing, experiment with the idea, etc.., and in this
freedom, know a greater creativity and a greater joy. A way to cross the
Extra Effort Boundary without the anxiety generally thought to be required
or demanded, without nagging at yourself, without others forcing you, and
without the immense time and energy that others tell you, that it requires.
Keep an Excellence in your methods and your manner, attempt as many
projects as you see fit, and don't let the Extra Effort Boundary bully you.
Seek your own level, gaze beyond, and be free to attempt any honorable
goal, easily crossing back and forth through the Extra Effort Boundary.
24. Comment: When The Opportunity Calls, Ex It Up!
Once we are engaged in some issue, whether it be roof repair, new phone,
new work project, etc., the opportunity exists to really concentrate on a
A possibility to upgrade, update, renew, expand, and take it the way it is at
the moment, consider the typical and normal way to approach it, but then
do something more or different, and make it something more excellent !
Most of the issues that we consider, a problem that comes our way, or
a challenge, a new project, or whatever, often takes a few hours, a few days,
maybe a week of days, of intense concentrated effort, to get it done,
Sometimes longer of course, but we become little experts about it for
that length of increased focus and concentration, and for the amount
of time that we spend there. Expert at it for a time, then forgetting most
of what we know, until the next time a similar need presents itself.
Use the time and effort to consider how things might be made more
excellent, not just addressed, but considered in an excellent fashion!
Not just finishing the task, solving the problem, starting something new,
but doing it in some kind of excellent way!
25. Comment: OH! Be Organized Happy!
There is a certain calm and satisfaction to being somewhat neat,
clean, and efficient about your life and the way you live...
People and the world in general tend to be sloppy, both about
themselves, and in their thinking and their lives...
However understand that not all people can adopt the best
methods, keep the best attitudes, or Try To Be Excellent.
It is simply not in them, simply not possible for them.
So be happy with your surroundings of which you have no
control and no other choice.
Then, as for your own life and Lifetime Excellentway Method,
you might keep 4 spaces:
Use a lockable fire resistant filing cabinet:
Within keep pocket file folders of your life and your dreams!
Separate it into ITEMS, METHODS, PEOPLE, PLACES.
and PROJECTS. Keep organized, knowing what you have,
what you treasure, what your goals are, Lifetime Systems,
flow charts, etc., about your life !
Assemble a display set of Large Ring Binder Folders:
Within keep laminated three hole punched pages of
your finished projects, photos, poems, etc. that which
you are proud of, a museum or archive of sorts, showing
your good works and project accomplishments !
Create And Use A Project Lab:
A place where you can work on and which by
itself, encourages you to master a thousand or
more projects !
Create a SIAT: (Store It All Together) Master Storage Area:
Within keep metal storage racks of plastic tool boxes
that hold the items of your life, stocks of extra things,
everything from food to grooming and cleaning
Separate it into:
- Project Racks, (Ideas, Priority, Current, Ongoing, Archive. etc.)
- Personal Racks, (Grooming, Clothing, etc. Personal Items).
- House Racks, (Tools, Food, Emergency Supplies, etc.)
- Business Racks, (If you have a business, etc.)
In such manner and method, you can become more
efficient and more excellent about your life !
Try to Be Excellent !
26. Start With The Excellent !
Generally, most people work from the bottom up, within their
Standard Format. You know your strengths, how much money
you have, how much time you have available to spend on a specific
project, etc. The design starts from within your Standard Format
Parameters, you commit yourself to it, and the project is off and
Nothing wrong with this method in and of itself, but consider
climbing some stairs to sit on top of your Standard Parameters
Box, climb right up there on top of it,
Then imagine what would really be excellent for this project
while you gaze at the stars above you for answers, or while
gazing out across the waves...
If your possibilities were endless, that anything you consider might
Contemplate your project in some kind of excellent boundless
manner from beyond your normal Standard Format box.
If you then compare your two views, while the most excellent
may still not be possible for you, suddenly your Standard Format
Box is larger, filled with more excellent furniture, and more excellent
Start With The Excellent And Compromise Downward As You Must,
Instead Of Working From The Bottom Up, Just Getting It Done, Or
Creating Nothing More Than The Good Enough.
Imagine The Good, Then Demand The Excellent !
27. Know What Is Yours, And What Is Not, And What Makes Your World,
A More Excellent Place !.
It was August, 2019, and a man was wandering around a local casino, when he comes
upon a slot machine with a money ticket hanging out. He pulls it out thinking that
someone had left a few cents in the machine.
Wow, it was 980 dollars!
He immediately looks around for the person who must have just been there, and sees
no one. He asks a woman nearby about who was just sitting at the machine, and she
gives him a vague description. He tells her that if she sees him again, to tell him to sit
there, that he wanted to talk to him. He then walks around and asks a few people who
fit the description if they had been playing over there. None of them were.
So he decides to turn the money in to security.
He walks over to the counter, pulls out the money slip and hands it over.
Of course he had mixed feelings about the money. He and his 99 year old mom could
have really used it since they were deep in debt. It was tough deciding, but he knew
the right thing to do, even before finding this little treasure. The money although in his
hand, was not really his, and perhaps the man that lost it somehow, needed it even more.
The security manager looked up at the man and said, "Ninety Eight Cents?" and handed
The man thought of what an idiot he was, that he had pulled the ticket out of the
machine and misread it, thinking it was 980 dollars ! WOW ! LOL!
So he retreated sheepishly over to a 5 cent machine, pulled out some few cents worth
of tickets and started to play the machine. But the video screen showed a few hundred
thousand worth of credits instead of just a few, which was surprising to him. He was not
used to seeing such a large number up there... He pulled out the ticket and it read 981
dollars or so! Back to security!
The funds were turned in so that the owner might be found, and if not, they would be
donated to the Casino charity. Subsequently that year for the first time, the charity
exceeded 1.2 million. He was pleased that maybe he had helped in some small way.
He seriously wondered if someone was testing him, his reserve, his motives, his very
essence, if he was worthy of the man that he thought he was.
Knowing how karma is a real thing, he was mostly convinced that he had done
the right thing, and that he would do it again, perhaps the world a better place
for his actions... And he a better man perhaps, for doing what it takes, to be a
better man. A little proud of himself he was.
Then he found a lucky penny on the ground ! LOL !
28. A GALAXY IN THE SMALLEST OF THINGS:
Since we are all distracted by problems and troubles, many of which we can do little about
anyway, when it feels like the world is against you, either once in a while, or, sometimes it seems,
all day long...
Look and find a galaxy of beauty in the smallest of things, that there may be an infinity of hope
and kindness, there just beneath the surface of some small, tiny, and normally insignificant thing...
It may be a piece of jewelry, a coin, or a grain of sand... Find a galaxy never seen and never
known, but for your belief that it is there at all... Perhaps it is God to you, or something else...
But when the world distracts you to distraction and everything is a blur of hopelessness....
Find the smallest of things and concentrate your mind to find a larger galaxy there, normally hidden
and never seen. Not denying the reality, nor running from it, nor hiding from it, but finding a different
kind of place, a different view from afar. Now something larger than your troubles, seeing an entire
galaxy in a pebble in your hand. Stand there with this single pebble in a timeless fashion, and feel
the different galaxy all around you, until you become something whole again, and taking a little of
its hopeful presence with you, back to this Earth world, and be refreshed and new again...

29. GERM WAR 2020 SOP:
Since the dawn of man, we have slowly learned that the cleaner we are, the healthier we are.
That the separation between your day to day life and the other dangerous bacteria and virus around us,
the better our chances.
Of course some bacteria and living organisms that surround us are friendly or cooperative in some manner
and these are embraced for our benefit, and for theirs.
Some day we may be able to tell the difference between the hazardous or mundane, the helpful
and beneficial organisms or the deadly, before we allow them close to us, however, this is not the case today.
Sadly, today, we must irradicate all of the unknown and invisible bacteria and virus around us as much as
possible, and repeatedly and completely, to ensure a clean and safe living environment.
Again, it is not just knowing the wisdom, but having the tools and the attitude, the power, to do the excellent.
"We must use the wisdom we know, not just gaze at it" - Hawk
First understand that germs, good, mundane, or evil, are all around us.
They may be in the air, water, or ground. Passed from one human or animal to the next, constantly changing
and adapting, trying to live and survive, destroying other life forms to survive and make room for themselves.
So, we are just like the germs around us, LOL!
This is why balance is so important on a competitive life filled planet. The more harm we do, the more we
may be destroyed by the natural Earth mechanism that surrounds and engulfs us, that we are a part of.
We should be kind to all of the life around us, and the Earth itself, but keeping a separation between our
artificial pristeen living spaces and a natural Earth, and keeping a good Karma.
So, a definite separation between the good and the possible evil must exist, both in the smallest of things like
bacteria, germs, even chemicals, and larger more complicated things such as people and animals.
Being in a germ war where humans are involved, some of course will be ignorant, stupid, arrogant, or crazy.
This also means you have to take care of yourself and the ones you love, and defend against the idiotic and
stupid people that walk this Earth among us. In other words, count on no one else. Depend on no one!
1. No Clutter. You can't effectively clean unless you can get to every square inch and every tiny corner of a
2. More Space. Open up your living spaces such that there is a minimal amount of stuff that has to be
cleaned, moved, or dealt with, so cleaning efforts can easily and completely reach the surfaces around you.
3. Multiple Weapons. Three main types of cleaners:
A. Benzalconian Chloride types.
B. Sodium Hydroxide types.
C. Alcohol types.
Multiple Methods. Whatever you do, it has to be clean before you sanitize it. No dirt or material there.
Never use a cloth towel or rag repeatedly. You are just moving germs from one place to another.
A bacteria or virus is not destroyed immediately on contact most of the time. It will survive on your rag long
enough to be moved from item to item.
USE LARGE DISPOSABLE PAPER TOWELS:
Use a single large sized thick disposable paper towel for every 6' square space or item.
Any rag or cloth towel will help spread germs from place to place.
When mixing formulas, use the cleanest and most pure water possible, not necessarily sterile, but at least
Reverse Osmosis treated water, to help make the disinfectant or cleaner as effective as possible.
On soiled or dirty surface: SPRAY AND WAIT, THEN SPRAY, WIPE AND DISPOSE. Repeat until looks clean.
On clean looking surface: SPRAY AND WAIT, SPRAY AGAIN TO WET, WIPE AND DISPOSE.
Waiting is required because most organisms are destroyed by time and intensity, not just spraying.
USE MULTIPLE CLEANER TYPES:
BAC cleaners are good, but also use bleach, the Sodium Hypochloride type and the Alcohol types. Each
disinfectant is effective on a certain bacteria or virus, and less effective on others. Of course make sure the
surface can withstand the cleaner you intend to use.
Never mix a bleach type of cleaner and any kind of acid, vinegar, etc., or it may produce dangerous gases.
Otherwise, combining cleaners may or may not have an increased effectiveness.
Clean ceilings, walls, and floors, doors and windows.
Clean carpet, tile, vinyl, concrete, etc. Yes, a lot of work. Germs go everywhere.
After any mess, immediately. Twice a day, morning and evening, perhaps not the entire living space, but
one or two sections every day. Kitchen and bathroom one day, Living room one day, Bedroom one day, etc.
Clean on a whim. Clean when waiting for something. Shampoo carpet using disinfectant at least once every
SET UP THREE CLEANING STATIONS:
Keep one cleaning station, a 350 paper towel roll in cabinet with dispenser and spray bottle of disinfectant
next to it., ready at a glance in the kitchen.
Keep a second cleaning station somewhere else, Bathroom, Closet, etc.
Keep a third but portable Cleaning Station in a closet. This would be like the Hawk Cleaning Bucket, with 200
paper towels, 4 spray bottle holder, and some tools, ready to transport to mess or cleaning area in an instant.
Keep one large plastic cookie container with wide mouth lid filled with vinyl gloves and disposable masks in
your vehicle, and one in your residence.
Use an N95 mask or P100 without exhale valves and hang on your rear view mirror so the sun
can hit it and possibly help disinfect it between uses.
Keep a Hawk portable clean station, paper towels, spray bottles, etc. also in your vehicle. Clean your shoes
on entering the vehicle and constantly clean the inside of the vehicle.
Also clean your shoes on the bottom and top with disinfectant, and remove shoes before entering your
residence and wash your hands immediately when entering your residence.

YOU MAY NOT FINISH ALL OF YOUR PROJECTS, BUT REMEMBER THE ENDLESS BEAUTY TO YOUR LIFE AND YOUR WORK... WISE IS THE MAN OR WOMAN WHO CAN FIND PURPOSE AND JOY IN THE SMALLEST OF THINGS, AND IN THE GREATEST OF THINGS...
LIVE DELIBERATELY AND FULLY AWAKE AND AWARE, TO FEEL THE PAIN OF IT ALL, BUT THEN THE GLORY OF IT TOO!
HAVE A BEAUTIFUL TIME, ENJOY THE RIDE DESPITE THE HILLS, FEEL THE WIND AND THE RAIN FALLING ON YOUR FACE, AND THEN THE WARMING SUNLIGHT THAT FOLLOWS...
MULTIPLY THE GOOD THING:
When you have searched for and then found, something that is excellent, say for example, a workbench, multiply the good of it, the excellence there. Instead of just a single workbench, buy a second one or a third, or even more. Call it Tablemania! Take this one excellent thing, and assemble more of them, either together, or spread out through different rooms... So then, as you walk your world or your place in the universe you are surprised by these things, these physical items that reach out to you in a way, that sort of speak to you. They encourage your efforts, make you smile, make you feel confident and content... Spread the excellence! Multiply the excellence! There is a happiness to having things that is part of our human nature. Holding something close that we see a value to it, makes us feel better, makes the world a nicer place!
There is always something you will want or need. Try to enjoy what you have, anticipate new things that you are working towards, and be discerning, only keeping the most excellent in your world! Then multiply excellent things into even more excellence! LOL!

Choose Carefully. Choose Wisely.
Your life is nothing more than one minute at a time.
Each minute on the dial like a separate project of yours.
Assemble a plan, move in an unstoppable direction like time and the hands on the clock.
Set your projects like the minute marks on a clock.
Be like the hands of the clock, applying intense focus and determination to the minute at hand.
Trying to make that project as excellent as possible, in the most excellent way!
Then turn your attention to your next project, and so on, and around the clock we go...
When you see a clock, let it remind you of all the wonderful projects you have going, and the endless options you have for new projects!
Let it also remind you of the endless beauty to work and to hope, envisioned in this timepiece, this force of good.

Time, may not be on your side, but where else would you have it? LOL!
We are a part of the universe which is shown to us an instant at a time, try to enjoy the view!
Somewhere in the universe, it is 10:08AM.
Stop everything, check your excellence gauge!
Are you working something excellent? Are you having an excellent time? Are you working towards an excellent world?
Great! Good for you! Otherwise put some time and consideration into what would be excellent! Make a note to plan your next steps, to start a new project, or finish something ongoing!
Now, past 10:08am. Keep moving!

I-94 East-West Freeway Comment Period
Wisconsin Department Of Transportation
Federal Highway Administration
Dear Good People!
Thanks for making Wisconsin roads and driving them, mostly a wonderful experience!
I am Hawk, from The Excellentway Society.
I believe that driving and walking spaces can be better made, both by product and by design.
Our major roadways should be like grand monuments, not “just a road”! We should build them with intent on their permanence and dedicated to excellence. We should build them using designers and contractors who are not required to constantly cut corners, but who are trying to improve them every time they are made, striving for excellence! LOL! Why, people should come here, just to see the Milwaukee Super Freeway, with souvenirs being sold to remember the experience!
Since as long as Lake Michigan exists, there will probably be a city here with an east to west travel path for the foreseeable future, such a pathway should be better designed, stronger, and more permanent. It should be Earthquake and natural disaster resistant from design to construction. A path worthy of fine sunny days, and still worthy for escape use and travel during bad weather or any other possible disaster.
A freeway can be more than just a solid roadway for vehicles to travel. It can be a statement of better safety in modern times, and a beacon of hope for the future, more than just a place for speeding cars.
Let us consider first, the raising of our attitudes and opinions that it can be something wonderful and hopeful to all who use it! Not just a roadway! It is something more valuable than dollars per square foot, for it represents a way to safely live and work our work and manage our projects, our very lives, in this area.
It can be a better well-made path, indeed a monument of sorts, a pyramid sideways, LOL! It can be much more excellent than current designs.
At the very least, a mere 5% of every new project should be devoted to experimental sections that would constantly attempt to improve our efforts, instead of stupidly just repeating our past flaws.
This should be a Standard Operating Procedure for all projects, big and small, within the United States. An excellent view, we think! An excellent idea, we think!
Of course I understand the difficulties and problems associated with such ideas, but that just indicates some little additional work, not that they are without merit or value or consideration, and must be dismissed out of hand, which we of course, routinely witness.

I would ask you to consider the following, if you are going to spend an enormous amount of money and design effort to improve the Milwaukee area East/West corridor;
Add a covered walkway/bike path along the length of the freeway, a few trees, flowers, picnic tables, etc.
Create a safe person/bike solid concrete walkway along the south side of the freeway, such that it is exposed to the sunlight, not in the shadow of the freeway. A path for people, pets, and bikers that runs the length of it, wide enough and of the same strength to possibly fit tracks or a monorail system in the future, keeping the walkway, but as may be required someday, planned for in advance of the need. Cover this with clear polycarbonate rounded panels using stainless steel frames. Possibly heat this area. Use solar cells on the south face of walls or structures to help provide lighting and heating.
Find a safe way to allow access on or off the nearby freeway, but always a wall between pedestrians and vehicles. A safe place to wait if vehicle is broken down, yet restricted by gate or some manner, so that a pet, toddler, or confused person, could not enter the freeway.
Use the best concrete, something that might last 1000 years. Consider building it in blocks that could be replaced in entire sections. The Greeks created concrete that lasted more than 5000 years, and we just use the cheapest materials possible, provided by the lowest estimated cost with contractors cutting every corner, just to get it done. It is a monument to the absurd, demonstrating that humans and human movement, are not worth the effort. Use stainless steel rebar and better designed shapes of rebar to better hold concrete together.
PLEASE, at the very least, keep it all the same light gray color, and as flat as possible.
A new roadway should at the very least be capable of the same exact color, and flat. Not uneven and full of bumps, different colors, and failing at the expansion joints within traffic lanes. Keep the expansion cracks out of the lane itself, being placed center of the lane markings when possible.
Also keep the concrete strong and resilient by not burying anything in it, possibly then needing to be dug out later. All utilities surface mounted, stainless steel conduit or piping used, this infrastructure being kept a part of the overall design view, with an ease of maintenance assured.
Light it from the sides. Lights can be built into sidewalls or raised areas on the sides and/or middle of the freeway. Remove overhead lighting and light poles, which can contribute to accidents and deaths on the freeway. Increase the lighting. Use solar cells on south facing surfaces to help power the lighting.
Use the lighting method to warn traffic of slowdowns or accidents, having it flash backwards from the accident or slowing area, to warn approaching cars, especially helpful during fog and drivers speeding during foggy conditions.
4. CLEAN IT:
Consider methods to use pressurized air and/or water to clean the surface area, virtually wiping the surface clean, into a collection area, to be used automatically during off hours. Possibly use small tubes and openings in the concrete to drain rain water away, and then later, reverse it to spray cleaning liquids over the surface.
Oils, gas, hydraulic fluids, parts of vehicles, rubber pieces, litter, are constantly being left on the freeway, some heavier parts or pieces being a danger to vehicles as one drops it and the next spins it up into a windshield.

Yes, such a roadway or freeway must be large enough to handle expected traffic for at least the next 100 years.
Now is the time to improve for the future, since at any time past the present, the opportunity and even the will to do so, may not exist, and even the supplies necessary to build it, or even the space needed, may not be available.
6. HEAT IT:
Somewhere in the world, humans are heating the pavement of roads or runways so that they can be used in the most challenging winter conditions, and help prevent accidents. If not, we should be the first! Not one person should perish on the freeways due to snow or ice. In times of bad weather, it should be the best place to travel, not the most dangerous. We are heating the bus stop concrete for a few travelers so they won’t slip or fall, and yet allow hundreds of thousands of people to travel on ice and snow at 60 miles an hour!
There is no excuse for not heating the main roadways, no matter the cost, to keep them safe and to keep salt and chemicals from entering our lakes and streams, which are also used for our drinking water.
7. HONOR/WATCH IT:
The freeways have become a place of dishonor and lack of respect, and it will only get worse, since it is not being addressed. It is actually being encouraged, since violators have little reason to expect to be apprehended.
If you create such a space or medium for humans to use, you are also responsible for keeping it a safe and honorable space.
Increase the video observation and create an immediate response. Set a speed limit and auto ticket anyone going more than 10 miles over the limit, or being reckless. Repeat offenders not allowed on the freeway.
Any person driving on to a freeway should know that their every move is being watched. But, then more than that, if they deliberately drive like an idiot, or try to hurt people, or even if they drive without two readable and correct license plates, or if they are driving a stolen vehicle or just involved in a crime, that an instant response will happen, and before they have the time to exit.
Possibly have law enforcement stations with slat garage doors that would suddenly raise and two squads emerge to apprehend people built into the sides of the freeway, behind safe walls, a safe place for the officers and a warning to drivers. This would place officers in a safe place nearest where they are needed the most.
Drivers would not know if there were officers manning such stations or not, and their existence by itself, might provide a deterrent effect.
Possibly add trouble stations, having a semi-covered roof on the side of the freeway to cover the vehicle, and then a wall with a safe covered space, picnic table, etc. next to it, other side of the wall. Encourage persons with a disabled vehicle to wait behind the wall, instead of in the vehicle which could be further hit by traffic.
If you litter, drive recklessly, drive faster than 10 miles over the limit, are drunk and go the wrong way, or if you have an accident, are injured, require some kind of help, there should be an immediate and automatic response. Consider private companies to monitor and patrol the freeways, or paid volunteers, in cooperation with law enforcement. Watch every inch of it, every day and night, and bring some honor back to this space, this roadway, instead of the lawless wild west it is now. Years past, you might go months before noticing some idiot driver. Now at almost every use of this freeway, you can witness an idiot and dangerous driver.
Give the freeways the respect that we deserve.

8. EV CHARGE STATIONS:
Yes, since electric vehicles are here to stay, create safe, off to the side, EV charging stations, funds from which would help pay for the freeway. Make the prices higher than average to encourage only emergency stops, not day to day usage. Possibly next to the law enforcement stations suggested, also able to use them.
Since money is the one reason cited most often, as to why things must remain the same, the mediocre and the same flaws repeated. Since even deaths from accidents are not enough to persuade the use of better designs over the cost. Since money is the God of our society, and basically runs our lives…
We would ask that you consider that wisdom is more valuable and worthy than money, that good design should be used despite the cost, that people are more important than this tool called “money” that we invented to barter for things. That money is money, but the good is priceless.
Since somewhat ironically, only those who have some amount of wealth or ability to change things, can really actually do so;
We beg you to consider the wisdom of using volunteers, donated efforts, public praise and acknowledgement, and every other possible honorable method instead of dollars, to improve our roadways and our lives in general, and remove the idea that progress and better lives cannot be improved since only limited funds are available. We must proceed with more wisdom, despite the lack of dollars, or because of the lack of dollars.
All around the world, the impossible is being accomplished despite the lack of funds. We should do the same.
Some of the money collected from speeders should be used to fund costs, solar cells used to help provide free electricity, and even use business sponsors and let them name sections of the freeway for their support, or sell advertising space on certain walls for small and neatly done simple advertising, etc.
Yes, we should be wiser and as excellent as possible, creating the best kinds of roadways, bar none.
Instead of working from the present and finding ways a more modern and safer freeway is impossible, we should imagine what would be excellent and work backwards from there to make it happen!
Nowhere else in all the world should there be a better roadway, or place, for that matter.
If we can help, count us in!
We hope that you keep in mind that we are proud of the efforts of the DOT and associated designers and workers, and we thank them for their efforts, and submit these comments to encourage an even more excellent place, for this Milwaukee, Wisconsin and these, our United States Of America.
