Hopefully we are all taking some time this summer to spend time with family, refresh and recharge. Plans are made and hopes run high. Sometimes, however, our vacation takes an unexpected turn at a fork in the road, and we find ourselves in less than pleasant circumstances.
How the rest of the…Continue

In every town or city I am always searching for that hidden restaurant. Not hidden like an underground gambling party but a place that is mostly only known to the locals. I find that these joints usually have great food and a wonderful atmosphere.
I found such a joint in Holladay, Utah. I grew up here but have since moved closer in to Salt Lake. This location was a couple of other failed restaurants. I didn't know a third place would give it a try until I drove by. It truly is…Continue

Eleven years ago on this day my wife and I were bless to have Elijah Mark Cundiff born into our family. This great event changed forever my leadership responsibilities. At that point in time I had no idea how much this event would change my life and change me forever. Having a child forced me to grow and develop as a person and a leader in ways I could have never of done without having a child…Continue

I seem to spend a lot of time talking with people about what they hope to do career-wise. I'm not sure if this is because there are more and more people who are lost in the changing world of careers, jobs and finding their calling or if I'm so interested in this topic that I seek it out on my own. Probably a bit of both. In any case I was talking with a family recently that included a twenty-four year old daughter and her mother. I asked the daughter if she was…Continue
My Daughter was sitting next to me tonight and asked what I was doing. I told her, I was working on my ebook. She asked how many chapters so I told her possibly 30. Her answer, that is really really long. I am not sure anyone can write that much. I love it!
The other fun thing is that since I made my whopping $.50 sale online she now wants to know how to make money by selling things online. She wants to design shirts to sell at…

Sounds like an appropriate title for this week’s update. Quite a week that’s for sure!
If you’ve notice, I have not posted any new blogs since Monday and for good reason.
I’ve been practically off the grid it would seem the past couple of weeks. When Cheryl got injured, there went my entire…Continue

Inflation and National Debt
We hear about inflation and the national debt so much in the news and on news talk shows that we get to where we tune it out and assume we understand what they are talking about. We also may not care what they are talking about and just worry about what is going on in our own little world. I will try not to bore you with too much nerdy information but hopefully explain it better than the news. I will start with inflation first. Inflation is an…Continue

“‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.’” Sounds pretty straightforward, right?
It isn’t. I encourage you to read Jeremiah 28-29. You…Continue

Being served...brings up all kinds of wild thoughts. Could it mean legal documents filled with information that is about to change you life forever? Makes your heart start to race, brings a dry feeling to the mouth and a shortness of breath just thinking about it. Thankfully I have never had this particular scene happen to me. But, I did have the same kind of reaction and symptoms when I was told by my co-workers and other volunteers from the church I have the privilege to work with that we…Continue

Most of us have occasional times when we're concerned with something. Some of us spend almost every moment consumed with anxious thoughts and uncertainty that create a crippling state of unease. Many of us (me included) have funky days/weeks when our inner compass keeps pivoting between those two…Continue

I attended Coaching With Excellence at the end of May and have blogged daily. I checked all three major Search Engines after the first week. I was finally showing up under "learnactshare" on the first page of hits.
I looked again today and I'm the top 2-3 hits on all three!
Now that I have a name with some traction, it is time to really get to work!

What do (or did) you want to accomplish by age 40?
I remember as a kid thinking 40 was "up there." Like close to retirement.
A friend's mom had an all black funeral party and placed a bumper sticker on the back of her van:
40 Isn't Old if You Are A Tree
On Tuesday I realized that as of…

Every few weeks we are getting together with some Foodies to eat, chat, and get lost in the work of delicious food. I have recently named us the Society of Divine Foodies. Some of the members don't know yet but they will soon enough (when dues need to be paid).
A couple weeks ago, we hosted one such event at our home. There were blue cheese sliders, caprese salad, homemade chicken caesar with homemade dressing-anchovies and all. We also got together this week for the 4th of July. One…Continue
