Are You Making A Bad Situation Better (Or Not)?
We see it all the time. Someone in the world drops the ball, and doesn’t do something they most likely should have. Didn’t do their job. Didn’t finish a task. Did something incorrectly. You name it. Someone else comes along and does the job, finishes t…
Make ‘Em Wonder What You’re Up To
I was watching a TV show last night when one of the characters said to the other, “I can take care of myself, I need you to take care of you.” That works I suppose. Of course, there’s another approach too. One where you never have to think of yourself, or …
Writing Helps Thinking
Rarely has there been a time in my life when a situation hasn’t been made better by writing my ideas down. There is something about putting the pen to paper that helps sort things out, and brings a certain clarity that would be elusive if those same thoughts were just floating around…
The ‘No Regrets’ Formula
Whether we realize it or not, we are in a large part, a product of every single experience that has been a part of our life up to this point. The good, the bad, and the ugly. All of them. Most of them we probably don’t even remember, but put them all on the table and roll them in to …

Could You Be Catching A Cold Right Now?
I haven’t had a cold yet this season. I know its only October, but I didn't have one last year either. No sniffles, sneezes, coughs, body aches, fever, chills. Now here’s the question. Be honest. As you read this, are you thinking to yourself, “Well, t…
Why Hitting ‘Reply-All’ Is Just Bad Idea
In all the technology, and all the progress, and all the communication options, in all the world; all the buttons, all the devices, all the apps; Facebook, Twitter, email, instant messaging, texting, iPads, laptops, phone calls, VOIP, Skype, iPhones, Android, and on and on and on – there&Close…
The Best Insulation
What’s the best way to insulate yourself from ridicule, being unfairly judged, and being gossiped about? Ok, let me rephrase that because there’s no way to stop ridicule, judgment, and gossip in the world. So, what’s the best way to insulate yourself f…
Please Pass The Poison
If what we think about expands, then we want to focus on thinking about good, positive stuff right? That’s what we want to see growing in our lives. If we think about negative things, then that is what we will see happening around us. Not good. Now if our own negative thoughts can ha…
