Which comes first?

May 14, 2009...

To the ancient baffler:

"The chicken or the egg...which came first?"

I wouldn't even begin to pretend to know the answer.

To a more relevant-to-my-life dilemma:

"Extra Mile" People

May 13, 2009...

I am really lucky.

Why? I am surrounded by total "extra-mile" people.

I don't know about you, but when I am around an "extra-mile" person, I flat out get better. My productivity increases. My energy raises. My vision soars.

One of THOSE Days

May 12, 2009...

Today was one of THOSE days.

Pieces were not falling into place. Results were slow. Items on my "TO DO" list seemed to be piling up exponentially.

It was one of THOSE days.

So what did I do?

Do you know "The Secret"?

May 11, 2009...

So much has been written everywhere about the "Law of Attraction." With its mythical packaging, the book, The Secret, brought the concept front and center to the world.  

Your Chance

May 10, 2009...

Today is a special day.

It's a day when mom's are celebrated.

Especially Today

May 9, 2009...

An Added Bonus

May 8, 2009...

I was reminded today of one of the great bonuses that come with choosing a self-improvement path.

Tugging on the Reigns

May 7, 2009...

I had a conversation today with someone going through an extended period of depression. It hasn't been just a few days. In her case, it has turned into a number of weeks...soon to be a couple of months.


Under promise. Over deliver.

May 6, 2009...

It is very important to me to follow-through with what I tell others. I am a big believer in "under promising...over delivering." What I say I will do...I will do.

My friends and business associates know this.
