This past week I spent some time in the Denver, CO area with a great friend of mine who lives out there. My wife bought me the plane tickets for my birthday saying that I needed to "go have the adventure of a lifetime!" Boy, did I ever have the adventure of my life! If you… Continue

I'm often asked to review online learning courses and provide feedback to content owners. My feedback almost always includes this sentence:
Your video is a lecture … and it is too long!
According to researchers, adult learners hate lectures. Lectures also are educationally ineffective. Yet, classroom and online "teachers" continue to use them while expressing… Continue

We all are products of our educational experiences. Those experiences influence the way we teach other people. It's safe to say that our view of learning is limited by our personal learning experiences. Whether you are a blogger, author, speaker, entrepreneur, homemaker, craftsman, business leader, employee, or anyone I left out, you have numerous opportunities to teach and… Continue

Are you full of hope? Hebrews chapter eleven shows people of faith are people of hope. That makes sense, doesn’t it? Those who trust God have more reason for hope than those who don’t. But problems with no visible solutions test our faith and challenge our hope.

Many people will leave cleaning supplies under the kitchen and bathroom counters. But often this results in multiple bottles (glass cleaner in each area, multiple toilet cleaning bottles, bleach wipes in each area, etc), extra sponges, and increased clutter. Not to mention the cleaning supplies tend to be down in a lower area where younger hands could inadvertently get into them!
My solution –...

I quit my job at the end of the month a week and a half ago. I left for a handful of reasons: Continue
1. Salary 20% below par for experience and background
2. 1 hour commute each way and owner will not allow more than one day remote per week.
3. technology is disparate and legacy (I'm a software engineer)
4. I'm working on a team of 1
5. The company is not growing--since I joined 18 months ago most of the meetings are about how the company is not…

Oh no, Not the Pokemon-Go type games or anything like those. These are games we play when we stay at a job far too long for all the wrong reasons.
One of the things I hear consistently from many clients is how long they have been unhappy at their jobs. Many have stayed working in an area where they no longer experience joy, a sense of purpose or any contentment. They play Bored Games, Frustration Games,Blame Games and… Continue

God, with His amazing sense of humor, has given me close friends who are more of the “clean-freak” types – you know what I mean. Vacuuming the mattress every… Continue
