[00:00:00] David Wood: I get really moved by service. And it took me a long time to realize that because I’ve always seen myself as so selfish and in many ways I still am. But. I I’ve always compared myself to people who are trying to save world hunger and, you know, Theresa mother Teresa and Gandhi and Martin Luther king, I’m like, I guess, selfish.

I am in, in my life. It took me a while to realize that I have dedicated my life to service. I get, I get paid for it. Um, but it doesn’t mean. That’s why I’m choosing this path. If I wanted money, I’d been an investment banker and I’d be so filthy rich right now, but that’s not my highest value. So pay it forward.

Um, Groundhog day another one. Okay. Yeah. Oh yeah. You know, it’s that movie is a comedy, but to me, it’s ultimately about someone who finds their way to service. And so, um, yeah, this is a hot topic for me.

[00:01:04] Chris Bellow: Awesome. Thank you for sharing. I don’t think I’ve really seen Groundhog day. I need to watch it. I just saw a clip of it, where it was repeating the same day and I never saw the full movie.

[00:01:12] David Wood:

Funny as hell, but I get so moved. I’m also. A bit massive geek about time travel. And so something like Groundhog day where they get to do the same day over again, and then change things and work out what they would do for systems and making different moves. So I lie a Groundhog day.

There’s one with Tom cruise. Um, if you, if you Google. Tom cruise and a travel. There’s a movie where he gets to live the same day over and over. And there’s also, um, I just watched one, uh, I’m just teasing listens now. Cause I can’t call up the names. I just watched a scifi movie about a guy on a train lives, the same eight minutes over and over and over again.

Uh, love that stuff

[00:02:03] Chris Bellow: because 51st dates I think right where she

[00:02:06] David Wood: all mines a good one. Yeah. Well that’s not.

[00:02:10] Chris Bellow: Did I really about living the same day,

[00:02:12] David Wood: but in a way it is for her and yeah. You know, no one ever brings up that movie, but that might be my favorite movie of all time. 51st dates. I I’m a big romantic and I that’s one of the most romantic movies I have ever seen.

And I was sobbing for, uh, at least 30 minutes. I was unable to hold a conversation with anybody. I went up on the roof and I just bawled my eyes out. ’cause um, that movie 51st dates is about pure service, pure service. He’s dealing with someone where he’s not going to get any reward for what he does. And another example of that is the notebook.

If you’re a romantic in your love moving movies, then that’s another one where he’s not going to get anything out. You know? Um, so yeah, I, yeah, I never get to geek out on service movies with people on a podcast. So this is fun.
