December is here and the Christmas season is no doubt underway. This time of year can be both very exciting and very stressful. I love the idea of buying a loved one something special and then wrapping it up and giving it to them on the greatest day of the year. It’s fun and very rewarding to bring that joy to them. But I’m starting to wonder, have we taken it too far?

After trying to straighten your live Christmas tree in the tree stand or trimming the branches to use around the house, now you have that sticky tree sap all over your hands...Try a spoonful of mayonnaise rubbed on your hands (like you're rubbing in hand lotion)...The sap (and the mayonnaise) should wash right off.

There is so much 24/7 “static” coming our way.
How do we expand our knowledge? How do we take ours lives to the next level?
I put together a few steps that might help:
Is Your Thinkin’ Stinkin’?
Mark: The beginning of June, we were back in Michigan. My son-in-law was taking some vacation time and I would be driving solo for the next two weeks. I would be taking runs from
the Detroit area to different points in Canada. That first day with him off…

Instead of making/purchasing a gift, you may already have something special tucked away that should be handed down to someone...Christmas is the perfect time to give "family heirlooms" as gifts...Imagine the look on the recipient's face when they open a gift of a treasured "family heirloom''...What a priceless memory!

I want to cut to the chase here. I know we're all interested in finding or creating the work we love. So let's hear some success stories. Personally, I'm interested in hearing from people who have taken their passion and created the work they love, in large part because of this community (48Days, FAA, the Millers, etc.). I see a lot of people here who are very inspired, and that's great. I just want to see the people who are actually doing work they love because of this.
The time to get ready for the journey is not once it starts, it is before.

Is your life a brand? It’s a strange way to think about life, and I don’t want to cheapen life by calling it a brand, but in today’s Facebooked world where people tweet about brushing their teeth, maybe it’s not so strange to think about our lives as our brands. More and more people are sharing more and more of their lives online. With the acceptance that it’s nearly impossible to protect…Continue

Would you want to be a superhero like Spider-man, Superman, or even
Shrek? Yes, I consider Shrek a superhero. (I personally would love to
fly.) Where would someone find out how to become a superhero? How
would you ever become a superhero?
There really is a simple way to finding out if you would like a particular career. Informational interviewing is a…Continue
