I chose to look at Mondays as Motivational Mondays. Some of us may be thinking that we need an extra cup of coffee or an extra hour of two of sleep. I choose to say, give me an extra shot of motivation and set me on my way. With 10 months left in the year, I choose to look at a March into Victory...
I was far too vague in my earlier post. Many misunderstood. Many focused elsewhere. So I will be more clear. This is a special week. A Holy week. A week where good news became grief and grief became immense joy and hope. For all eternity. For all that came and sought. Maybe this makes it all much...
The year was 1985. I wasn’t expecting it. It came a complete surprise. I had no idea that it would happen. But I got wrapped up in the moment. Adrenaline pumping. Mind racing. Emotions at a fever pitch. And there it was. Even then I didn’t understand the impact of my actions yet. I wouldn’t reall...
As Stephen Covey once wrote, “Begin with the end in mind” and yet, how many for get just that? How many forget to create an exit strategy? After all, life is more than making money. And no, I don’t mean “there’s spending it too”. There are experiences the world has to offer. Family. Friends. Char...
Okay, so I couldn’t go cold turkey. I had to find another way to keep a few more Friday Funnies going. So, for a few weeks, the Friday Funnies will be the TV edition.

Then on the way out instead of someone trying to arrest you, they stop you to give you an award for taking someone else’s money. Sound cr...
How many times have we allowed this to happen? When someone paints their fears on us and we accept it? Or someone paints their judgement or condemnation upon us and we believe it is real? Ever wonder how much more could be done or how much happier we could be if we weren’t feeding the fears?
Ronald Reagan hired a brilliant economist for his cabinet name Paul Zane Pilzer. I was fortunate enough to read his books and hear him speak in person in the early 1990s. One belief he has always stuck with me. “Resource times Technology equals Wealth” or “RxT=W”. As I pondered how this has becom...
Just a pondering random thought. Seriously. I got to thinking about remixes. I will do that with songs that I play. Take a country song and sing it in a Bon Jovi style. Or take a rock song and twist it into funky version or maybe country. You can place your own flavor on it. Now true, you may be ...
I got a comment from George Souto recently where he said, “winners not only do not need excuses, they don’t need to make excuses”. That hit me. I realized that winner don’t always win, but when they don’t, they don’t make excuses, they take responsibility. The label we place on ourselves or even ...
