Looking For the Good in Every Day

December 20, 2012…

Something matter how big or small…must have happened for you today. It could have been as small a gesture as a simple smile from a stranger, but most assuredly, there was a "feel good" moment.

Was it a comment you received at work? A wagging dog tail when you came home? Was it that you exercised, kept your patience, or shared a positive word with a friend?

Do you have a "highlight of the day"?

Be a Doer. Not a Talker.

December 16, 2012…

People talk all the time. They talk about what they're going to accomplish. They talk about all the great goals they are going to achieve. They talk about writing the book, going back to school, going on a safari, or starting a business. And as so often happens...all the talking leads to little action being taken.

Be the opposite. Be a doer…not a talker. Be the model of what it means to take action.
