Dear Son, Use Caution When Dreaming

Dreams, Like Sand Castles, Can Be Easily Washed Away

What If Only 3% Of Male Baby Boomers Did Something Great Before They Died?

The Physical Setting Helps Set The Stage

Hard to believe a business trip to the beach could be an amazingly productive writer’s retreat. Why? Because so many business folks think they understand human productivity?

Execution is the name of the game. So is the size and reach of the plan – vision. What if 3% of 40 million male baby boomers, 1.2 million elders, did something great before they died. What if?
