I’ve tried the chore thing before with the kids. Assigning tasks that they’re each responsible for but it’s never really worked out. They’re all very thick-headed, and plus it seems giving orders has always prevented things from getting done more so than it did allow for them to do their best work.
After-a-while, the kids were never motivated to help out. They just wanted to play, and any sign of chore duties would put them right back…Continue
There once was a couple whose life-long dream was to board a cruise ship and sail from New York to London. They dreamed of walking along the River Thames, visiting Big Ben, and taking in all the grander of Buckingham Palace.
They saved for two years for the passage and, wanting to keep all of their money for London, packed a suitcase full of of crackers, cheese, tuna fish, and…Continue

We have heard this statement since we were kids; you have to take responsibility for your life. There is a lot in life that we have to take responsibility for. It is easy to get on cruise control and let the status quo take over and run things. For example, we can depend on the government to take care of us with social security. We all know how good the government is at handling money! Do…Continue
I would like to say that I really like the 48 Days Podcasts. I can download and listen to them at my leisure. They are interesting in themselves although I use them to search for answers to specific questions. What is reallly great about the podcasts is they open my eyes to possibilities I had never even thought of before. These insights come from podcasts I am listening to in order to answer another question usually. So my advice is don't just listen to those that seem to attract you but…Continue

I’ll admit my mind is thinking about the Ocean this week. We have a trip coming up to the Gulf, and I’m like a kid waiting for Christmas! The Ocean is my guilty pleasure as we were made for each other. My wife feels the same, which is awesome!
What's on your "to do" list today? I'm not talking about doing laundry or taking out the garbage, what are the really big items, like write a book, go to Africa, open a business? And a better question, perhaps, is how long has it been on your list?
Author Rory Vaden of "Take the Stairs" has dissected…Continue

Each day presents new choices. My goal daily is to be open and ready to whatever God wants me to do with those choices. Often I think we don't allow ourselves to dream big in fear of failure. But, why not me? Why can't I write the best childrens book in the industry and changes the way that kids think about their future? Why can't I be a revolutionary teacher that motivates her students to make a difference in the world and fearlessly chase their own dreams? I can! I can do all things…Continue
On June 1, I reached a major business milestone -- my one-year anniversary as a full-time entrepreneur. I wish I could say it has all gone smoothly, but just like the ebb and flow of the ocean's tide, so goes business (and life for that matter). Right now, I'm in the ebb and it's not a comfortable…Continue
