Did you hear that?

Day in and day out.

Committed. Relentless. Focused. Confident.

Ice Cream For Everyone

Christmas is filled with Joy. Do you exchange gifts this time of year? How about for birthdays?

There are many who think gifts are only physical items, usually bought, but sometime handmade, items.

The real gift at mid life is a cumulative book of wisdom.  People at mid life have varying degrees of self-confidence in the value of their “wisdom book”.

All mid life adults have something to offer.  And most of us have a unique chapter we could add to Life’s Wisdom Book.

Toughest Thing About Being A Success?

“The toughest thing about being a success is that you’ve got to keep being a success”.Irving Berlin

Ask a mother, a father, a school teacher, a doctor or a nurse.  Ask a street sweeper, or a cook.

We all should consider where we stand on this issue.  And if we like our answer, awesome.  If we don’t…..

Rich Man?

“A man is rich in proportion to the number of things he can afford to leave alone”.   — Henry David Thoreau

This one is particularly painful for me to read.  Why?  Because more is better.  Right?

I mean, five blogs a day?  Are you kiddin’ me?  Who does that?

Me.  Guilty.  Rut roe.

More is not better, except in a few things.

While visiting the West Coast, maybe there will be time to do less, think less, read less.

Probably not.
