The conversations you have with yourself…

…impact what you do and how you feel.  What have you told yourself lately?  Have you been an encourager or a life sapper?  Do you hear justification or warning?  Do you bargain with yourself or hear, “you can do better?” The inner voice is a powerful influence on our lives. This is why you must […]

path not plan

I’ve been thinking about this a bit lately.  We’ve all heard the phrase, “Those who fail to plan, plan to fail.” Right, but also wrong.  I’ve seen people who are terrible planners succeed, and people who are meticulous planners fail. Yet something else, seems to work.  Path.  Those who have a path, who have a […]

What’s your inspiration?

What gets you up in the morning?  What is it that you look forward to doing/seeing/engaging in the most? What makes your heart beat a bit faster and your mind spark? Your inspiration is your fuel.  When’s the last time you filled that tank? Go do it. Now.

Where did everything go?

Don’t know what happened but I just noticed today that had something wonky going on and no posts were displayed.  I have NO idea how long the site was down as I’ve been so busy that I haven’t had a chance to post anything here (thinking my life may be too busy). At any rate […]

I often find myself looking at all the things I have to finish (because of my obscenely large todo list) and it overwhelms me and I shut down.  I’ll end up procrastinating and wasting time because I don’t think I have enough time to get started and finish something in the time I have in the […]
