I had an amazing weekend with the family. Watching the kids hunt for eggs brings back so many childhood memories. It’s amazing to watch children play and do make-believe things. There’s not a care in the world for a child, and in their world anything can happen; anything is possible, and every moment appears to be brand new for them. Nothing seems to get old for them – and I say that very loosely – as we’ve heard the cries of a kid not getting their way…Continue

I recently attended the "Write to the Bank" event. Of course, I came home super excited, and I still am. WTTB was awesome and exceeded my expectations. I decided it's now or never to work on the "work" I love. I'm have an abundance of gifts that need to be shared with the world. However, I only have 168 hours in the week like everyone else. I'm sorry but even in this high tech age, you can not buy, borrow or rent anymore time. We all get the same amount. When I…Continue

Life can get pretty overwhelming at times. We all have those periods where you feel like everything seems to be going wrong. You may get a little depressed. You may feel a tightness in your chest due to the constant pressure and stress closing in on you. And often, during times like this, it's nearly impossible to clear your mind enough to figure out how to start moving beyond the stress and chaos.
If I could go back in time and give myself some advice during a time of major stress…Continue

What Does It Mean To Be Re-tired?
Most people would view retirement as a slowing down period but most who have retired find out it means having a bunch of new bosses needing your "free" services.
I kind of like the idea that a company like Firestone or the tire center at Walmart have for their customers, not their employees, that re-tirement is adding the potential for a lot more miles by getting new tires for your…Continue

When a company becomes as large as Toyota they need to try to predict and create plans for outside forces. With the earthquake in Japan and the radiation leaks, Toyota has been forced to close one of its major parts manufacturing plants. This has caused them to put all of their American production plants on a three day production run.
Large companies need to be…Continue

Stay on Target
Mark: Saturday January 2nd 2010, Susan, her kids and I were on our way down to Tennessee. I drove the first half and then gave way to Susan. We made the trip in good time even with stopping to see family in southern Michigan.
Sunday morning we went to church at The River; service time had changed and we were about half hour late and missed praise and worship. We were just in time for the lesson. It felt…Continue

So yesterday was my daughter’s 4th birthday, which we are celebrating today, and I am forced to include the cliché mantra all parents know and say… “Man how time flies!” I am reminded of the hours spent in delivery 4 years ago (although we all know I had the easy job) and the brutally magnificent reality that from that moment on I am and always will be a father.
The lessons I have learned as a father have been extremely valuable, and not always easy to learn. …Continue
Our possessions are things we earned or we are still paying for because we wanted them. When we leave this earth, none of these things will go with us. Our rewards in heaven will be earned by the things we do on earth not by the things we have on earth. It’s time we looked at what we have done rather than what we have. It’s time for us to make a change to make a difference. Rather than looking at what else we can get, let's look at what we can give.

Don’t be afraid of the impossible. You know that the impossible is what we all want deep down, but we need that as our vision regardless. This gives us direction, a place to achieve, or aim for. What matters is how we are approaching that target today; or what’s realistic now. Typically, you’ll find that the further you approach your vision along the way, the more possible it appears to become.
Knowing the impossible, we can make “possibles” happen right…Continue
So my competition is tomorrow and I'm still not doing much about it.
I just spent the past 30 minutes surfing and talking to myself trying to practice on my presentation style.
I believe that our product that my team and I are gonna compete with is completely innovative and fun!
But we're all afraid that our presentation will pull us down and as a result, we won't be able to win the competition.
Anyway, It's Good Friday and I gave Church a miss today.
