"Is this the best I can do?"

April 3, 2010...

"Is this the best I can do?"

I ask myself this question often.

Wealth, Power, Fame

April 2, 2010...

1. Wealth. 2. Power. 3. Fame.

When I was younger, those three ideals seemed to dominate my thinking
and effort.

"I want..."

"I want..."

We all wish it. We all say it. 

"I want..." comes in big forms and little forms.

Consistency...and the 10 second voice

A leadership tip...

What recommendations would I give to someone in a leadership position?

"Surround yourself with great people."

Too Many Shortcomings...

You may know one. Or two.

I met a guy today who had a tough start in life.

What happens next...

March 25, 2010...

I'm one of those people that have a hard time focusing on the lyrics
of entire songs. I start out listening to the words closely, but it
seems before long, I am captivated by an idea or phrase sparked by the
singer. It happened recently.

I was listening to a song by Natasha Bedingfield called Unwritten.
I can't even begin to tell you what the song is about, but I can tell
you that single word sent my brain spinning.
