Ask For Help

Ask For Help

I had to ask for help today. A few years back, it probably wouldn’t have happened and if it did, it would have been two or three days after it should have happened. And, by that time, I would have missed the opportunity to check myself before I wrecked myself. Yep....

“Down Day”

“Down Day”

Everyone has a “down day.” I had one yesterday. I wasn’t really feeling sad or depressed, I just couldn’t get focused on what I had planned and written down in my calendar for the day. I was definitely distracted. I allowed that to set my mood for the day but I...

Life Long Learning

Life Long Learning

I’m not your traditional college student. Not at all. But, I am a life-long learner. My high school had three tracks of study; business, academics and vocational. Since I didn’t really know what I wanted to do after high school, I opted for the business track. Yep....

Your Page. Your Chapter. Your Story.

Your Page. Your Chapter. Your Story.

Your life is a story. Have you ever thought about it in that way? I like to think of my life’s story as a book. A book I can author. The pages of this book can be what happens in a day, a week or a month. Chapters can be years or decades. But, it all matters because...

The Bucket List

The Bucket List

End Your Year Intentionally

End Your Year Intentionally

I always love cracking open my new calendar/planner for the year. The blank pages remind me that anything is possible. Or, to say it another way, the possibilities are limitless. But before I start filling in the blank pages in my new planner, I have a few more things...

Life Begins at the End of your Comfort Zone

Life Begins at the End of your Comfort Zone

Every so often I come across “The 2% Mindset” graphic. It is a theory that implies only 2% of us are pursuing our dreams and living life without limits. The other 98% are stuck inside their comfort zone. That makes me a bit sad. You see, to join the ranks of the 2%...
