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.

Deep-Sea Goal Fishermen

April 23, 2009...

Sometimes...heck, often times...things just don't go as we'd like.

The new job isn't what was expected. The revised marketing plan falls flat. The once-promising relationship grows cold. It's just life.

I went "Wow!"

April 22, 2009...

I received shipment of a few thousand books today. It was MY book. It went something like this...

There was a knock.

Will tomorrow be better?

April 21, 2009...

I was sent an email today that when melted down to its core simply read: "I hate my life. Can you guarantee tomorrow will be any better?"

Hmmm...can I really guarantee tomorrow will be better?

Garage cleaning

Yesterday, I did some big time garage cleaning.

Charlie was right.

I went to a used book sale today.

If you've never been to one before, they can be a lot of fun. I love picking through the collection of biographies, psychology, historical, and self-improvement books just to see what treasures I can find. Today I came away with eleven such treasures and spent a grand total of $14.68.

"Just survive!"

April 18, 2009...

The events and circumstances of our individual lives can take a toll.

From them, it is easy to grow weary and make much less effort to dream and push ourselves. Our biggest goal simply becomes coping. At times, most of us have fallen victim to this "Just survive!" mentality.

212 degrees

The smallest difference can make a big difference.

"An Attitude of Gratitude"

April 16, 2009...

I have two kinds of goals in my life. External goals. And internal goals.

The external goals? Well, they give my life purpose. They are the goals that are tied to making my life count. They are the goals that can be seen. They are the "bricks" of my life.

"It is what it is."

April 15, 2009...

"It is what it is."

That's how I have learned to deal with news. The bad kind.

Instead of creating an emotional frenzy for myself, I accept it.

Again, "It is what it is."
