"The End"

May 3, 2009...

It's something we all have in common.

In fact, it's something that every life form on earth...plants, animals, people... have in common. It's "The End."

And so can we.

It's race day.

I watch one horse race a year, and today's the day.

The Kentucky Derby.

Appreciating Routine

May 1, 2009...

Some people are not exceptionally fond of routine. I must admit, I am guilty of falling into that category. However, there comes a time when even those of us who dislike routine need to appreciate its value.

Routine has value?

Write a Happy Ending

April 30, 2009...

Today, I heard a story of another person losing her job. Although what I felt upon hearing the news was deep compassion and frustration, I know it wasn't 1/10 of the pain this person was feeling.

I only heard the story. She is living it.

Learn and Practice

April 29, 2009...

Think of something you're good at doing.

No. Erase that.

Think of something you're GREAT at doing. (If "great" is possible..."good" just seems so darn mediocre, doesn't it?)

The other end of the phone...

Courtesy and kindness go a long, long way to making life better.

Everyday Lessons

April 27, 2009...

I was asked where I get my ideas for my newsletter and my blogs.

The answer is easy: I get ideas from everywhere.

In conversations. From books. From the news. From a movie. From something I see while running.

"Later" Starts "Now"

April 26, 2009...

Later, when the dust clears and you can see the consequences of previous individual decisions, you'll notice a trend: It feels better to have made the hard choice.

1. Later, you wish you had had one less drink.

"Choice" Awareness

April 25, 2009...

Choices. They surround us every day. Little choices. Big choices.

When to get up? Choice.

Your toothpaste this morning? Choice.

What to eat for lunch? Choice.

Look around you for the answer

April 24, 2009...

If you want to know your current potential, look around you.

Look at the people in your life.
