"45 Minutes to take out the garbage?"

Yes, this is something my wife asked me over a year ago. I did take out the garbage and it took 45 minutes. Well, the garbage didn't take that long but talking to everyone did. Since then, she doesn't even ask.

I am a high "I" on the DISC personality profile and feel like I am a party just waiting for a place to happen. My association with others is my greatest strength and I have spent years nurturing it.

My daughter is almost 3 and her & I love to "wander" the…

FYV 174 An Introvert’s Greatest Gift

Having bought into the myth that professional success is reserved only for those persons with a hard-drivingtake-no-prisoners style, she diligently tried to bend, shape and contort into whom she thought she was…

Will the Supreme Court Take Away Your Right to Sell Your Stuff?

The right to sell your own stuff on eBay, Craigslist, at pawn shops, and garage sales is as American as apple pie, right?  Not so fast!  This year the U.S. Supreme Court will decide whether you really do have a right to sell the stuff you own.

And no, I’m not kidding.

A case before the Court, Kirtsaeng v. John Wiley & Sons, threatens what is known as the “first-sale doctrine”or “the right of first sale” in copyright…

Intentional Living and Realizing Our Dreams

Today I had lunch with a new friend who is in the process of making a major life change by jumping out of the corporate world into business for himself. He has had a very successful corporate career for the past 12 years climbing the corporate ladder to obtain VP and Director positions with different companies over the years.

He has had a dream for 10 years to launch a coaching business so where he can have an impact on men's lives as they strive to be all God created them to be in…

Mission Possible!

This blog entry is longer than I prefer. Thanks for your patience – it was something I had to express!

As a young boy in the mid-60’s, Saturday evenings at home were periodically greeted with the TV show, Mission Impossible.  The phrase, “this message will self-destruct in 5 seconds!, began the episode for the evening.  For those of you old enough to remember this, I know you are either audibly humming or mentally hearing the infamous theme…

Pretty Things

I love pretty things.  Making my house beautiful is something I totally enjoy.  When I can sit in my chair, look at my surroundings, and smile, well, then I am a happy camper.

This is a picture of my kitchen counter this week.  All the components came together quite by accident.  The mirror and large plate in the background are always part of my counter.  I like the way the mirror reflects the back of the plate.  The black basket with vegetables has recently…

You Must Be 21 to Enter

On Monday evening I was with my nephews. In my food blog they are often referred to as Sous Chef Sam & Sous Chef Jesse. They love to cook with me and also have a deep love of finding great restaurants. We were hungry and I said that I saw a place advertising Garlic Burgers and Bleu Bacon Burgers. There is nothing like a good burger to hit the spot.

Driving to the restaurant, I drove a route that I rarely take. As I turned into the parking lot, I saw that it was a Bar. What? It…

SMR 028 – Unhealthy Expectations

When she entered into her first marriage, she took with her the goodwill, the passion and the desire to create a healthy, happy home. Unfortunately, because of past programming and misunderstandings experienced earlier in life, the Covenant of matrimony turned into misguided efforts…

How does your leadership reflect upon your organization?

Recently I have been dealing with an insurance company trying to settle a claim I recently filed. During the course of dealing with this company I have learned a lot about the leadership of this company through the actions of their employees that have dealt with me directly. Today I spoke to the boss of one of these key people and I immediately understood why I had been getting the kind of treatment I had been getting. The person I was dealing with directly the  past several weeks was a…

The Power of NOW!

The past is full of memories. The future can only be created in our minds. But NOW is when we can decide what kind of life we live.

Momma And Her Juggling Career

Exercising the brain is important for us at every stage of life.  This is true even when dementia becomes part of the picture. We have often heard instructions to work crossword puzzles, Soduku puzzles, and jigsaw puzzles. This is good advice IF doing these things is a challenge.  Then the brain is getting a good workout.  If doing these things come easily, the brain challenge is less, and, therefore, the benefit to the brain is decreased.

Success Journal

Pei and I had a wonderful time this weekend at the three-day Millionaire Mind intensive. If you’ve read T Harv Eker’s book “Secrets of the Millionaire Mind”, you’re no doubt familiar with it. We walked through the arrow and broke it with our throat.…

Risk or Opportunity?

Since I stumbled upon this nugget of wisdom from Mr. Zig Ziglar, I have often used it to promote others through my writing. My first book was based on this philosophy. I wouldn't be surprised if the next book is written for someone special or the audience attached to that person.

You may read the story…

Excuse my If's And's & But's

Please excuse me if I take a short cut on this weeks blog.  I almost skipped it altogether.

A lot of things have been keeping me extra busy.  See if this reminds you of you.

I've been traveling a lot for work and had to do a presentation on Friday.  The kids were each under the weather in the last few days and I had to take one to the doctor.  I've had meetings at church and soccer…

Keep It Simple

This week my son shared a simple way to remove outdoor cobwebs. Our house is built into a hill, and the basement opens under our front porch. Spiders decorate this area every Halloween, and they keep their decorations up year round.

Cleaning this area has been a nightmare. I approached it with waterproof shoes, bucket, extension pole, gloves,…

Coming Back to 48Days.Net

Hello all in this network.  I feel as though I should provide some explanation as to where I've been since I last posted on this site. I got married in 2010, worked hard to pay off a debt and a loan, and haven't had much time to devote to our community. I now am working as a consultant with Pink Papaya.  I have shelved my dream of being a Life Coach in favor of this for a time.

This dream is still very much what I would like to get to, when time permits and when my first book gets…
