Do you follow the posted speed limits on roads and highways in your community (most of the time)? Why? How attentive would you be to those speed limits if there was no law enforcement present to inspect your actions? Be honest. Are their people on your team that routinely roll in to work 15 minutes late? How attentiveRead More

I left the house the other morning early for a 90 minute drive. Driving time often generates the topics for my weekly emails. This trip was no different. Driving into a sunrise – well that was just a bonus, inspiring, and thought provoking. I got to my destination, pulled out my journal, and did a quickRead More

“Do not wait; the time will never be ‘just right.’  Start where you stand, and work with whatever tools you may have at your command, and better tools will be found as you go along.”                                          Read More

How many times do you stress about your calendar?  Do you sit up at night wondering if you have remembered all of your appointments?  How often are you double-booked . . . . on accident?  Have you ever missed a meeting because it didn’t make your calendar or it was the wrong time?  Me tooRead More

A while back I was playing a board game with my great nieces (ages 2 & 5).  To kids this age rules are somewhat irrelevant – it’s really about the dice (and finding them after the roll – or throw) and moving the pieces around to pretty spots. This can be pretty frustrating – even withRead More
