Your place for community & resources to find or create work you love
We are so glad you're here and ready to take the next step! We created 48days.net as a place for community. For people to encourage each other and help each other in finding or creating work that is meaningful.
But frankly, we've outgrown it, so we're moving to provide you new resources.
48Days.net will be closing as it is today on November 30, 2017. Until then current members can click the button below to access groups and resources.
If you're new to 48days.net, connect here for a close up look at our thriving 48 Days Eagles Community and to get weekly free resources and motivation as you find and create work you love.
You speak to me. But those words you say, are they meant for my good or are they spoken out of your fear, some baggage from your past?
Do you really think that because something happened to you, it will also happen to me?
Why don’t you let me be me, and I’ll let you be you?…Continue

Funny thing, my daughter Alena, she’s three years old. She likes to hold onto my legs while I’m walking so she can slide around the house. I use to have Nicholas on one leg and Alena on the other, and that gets kind of heavy. Nicholas is eight now, and starting to get a little too big for this kind of stuff, but he’s not stopping evidently!
Now, I’m not saying they are burdens to me at all, as matter of fact I enjoy it! It drives me crazy sometimes, especially when I’m…Continue
I am in the midst of a job search that began in early November when I parted ways with a large corporation. I am finding openings through the website Indeed.com which is sort of a search engine for jobs. Some job openings have a long list of responsibilities which I read and re-read as I craft my cover letter. As I write, I actually start to believe that I can do those things. Then later, I wonder if I am bitting off more than I can…Continue
I was doing some research avoiding work this weekend during some downtime a major meltdown and my virtual ship rather aimlessly came to rest at Karol Gadja's site, Ridiculously Extraordinary . Noodling around, I found, read and was absolutely convicted by a post titled…Continue

I had a 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee that I had kept in immaculate condition. One Sunday afternoon, it would not start. After looking it over, I found that there was no fuel getting to the rails, and that meant to me that the fuel pump was not operating properly. I had the Jeep towed to the dealership I…Continue

I suppose I should give an explanation of the title. Pretty sure it's french and I'm pretty sure it means that everything is in it's place. I took the idea from Peter Reinhart's Bread Baker's Apprentice. He lays it out in the book as gathering the ingredients measuring everything out and having it ready to go. In this stage of the business process; Here I stand.
I spent the weekend investing in family a Bro-&-Sis-in-law that are scarily like my wife and I. I jokingly…Continue

While I am sure her mother had the best of intentions, Jean was pushed, academically, in a way she didn’t want to go, and cornered, into a career, that gave her little room to breathe. (Jump to the blog)…Continue

Whoops! Google wanted me to learn a Biblical truth: "Pride goes before the fall!". Some of us with websites have learned that Google is fond of animals, this time their favorite pet is a Panda.
Simply put, traffic took a nosedive, with income this month being half of other month's earnings. New algorithms by the search engine with a name seemingly made by a baby learning to talk (GooGoo) have placed many of my pages deeper down on the results.
My websites needed to be updated…Continue

A good deed is never lost. He who sows courtesy, reaps friendship; he who plants kindness, gathers love; pleasure bestowed on a grateful mind was never sterile, but generally gratitude begets reward.
- St. Basil
There is a law in the universe and it is called sowing and reaping. A farmer plants a seed of corn and expects a stalk, if he plants an apple seed he expects an apple tree. He would not expect a tree to…

Imagine for a moment your inner self, being like a large ocean-faring ship at sea. Pick for yourself some ship, maybe huge like a Cruise ship, or maybe something older and larger like the Titanic. Maybe something like the old triple, or four mast sailing ships you’ve seen in pirate movies. Maybe a high-tech cutters, like the ones that win world cup races… Alright, got the ship fixed in your mind!?

Ahhhh, the turkey is now in casseroles and most of us are getting ready to head back to school or work tomorrow.
Well, in my last blog, I made this very bold statement, and I quote, "I am also going to make it a point to ask each family member at each family get-together at least one question about their dreams, their goals, their pet…Continue
It's the Sunday after Thanksgiving. The football games are still going. There may still be turkey, ham, salmon, or a veggie dish left in your house. The last piece of cake or pie might just be "calling your name". Right now, the scale is probably not your friend. You've already begun to think of all the variations of "left-over" meals you can. There is turkey casserole, turkey salad, turkey gumbo (why not?) and of…Continue
I don’t know who said it first, but I’m saying it now, so I shall take the credit. You are my witness. Experience is often called the best teacher. Hogwash! Experience is the last teacher. Other people’s experience is the better teacher. (Andy Andrews has said something similar, I know:).
Books are probably the best way to learn from others’ experiences. And, as I rarely read anything that isn’t at least close to great nowadays, most of the books I read are “one of the most important…Continue
