Soar like an Eagle. Run like an Ostrich.

Eagles are cool. People are always talking about soaring with them (soaring is even a cooler word when used in conjunction with eagles.) The eagle is majestic airborne creature whose is used to represent our country and appears in a lot of government buildings, on most of our currency, and is cast for use in numerous medals, […]

52 Weeks of Whensdays

January is an ideal time to adopt an “Everyday is Whensday” philosophy. By now you’ve probably noted the unique spelling (or at the very least realized the date of this blog post is most certainly NOT the weekday that falls between Tuesday and Thursday.) I first shared this concept last year after I’d spent some […]

Red Rubber Ball At Work

The Red Rubber Ball At Work is an excellent companion to Rules of the Red Rubber Ball! I was expecting to be a more of the original (which I also loved) but the author slightly shifted the approach in this wholly original addition to the Red Rubber Ball series. I thought it was going to […]

Rules of the Red Rubber Ball

As I scramble to add a few final titles to my list of books I’ve read this year,  I’m burning through some books that fall under the heading of “short and sweet”  — big on message, short on page count. One the books that fills that requirement better than most is Kevin Carroll’s “Rules of the […]

Tell Your Worries to Flock-Off

Worries flock together like birds. It starts with just one worry flapping its wings and squawking in your head, but it can quickly lead to other worst-case-what-ifs joining in. Soon you have an entire aviary of anxiety housed in your head. The thing about birds (and worries) is that any sort of quick movement toward […]

New Day. New Choices.

Did you know that you get exactly the kind of day you choose? Did you jump out of bed five minutes before the alarm went off eager to greet the day with a “God, What a good morning!” or did you blindly thrash out a hand to hit the snooze bar after it honked at […]

Profiting from Info Products

I am in the midst of reading a new book called “The Six-Figure Second Income” by David Lindahl and Jonathan Rozek, and I’m really enjoying it.  I just finished chapter 3: “How to create content cheaply and easily.” In Stage 3 of this chapter, the authors outline over 40 different ways content can formatted for […]

Killing Cats

I’m sure you’ve heard the phrase “Curiosity killed the cat” it’s probably one of the more morbid cliches out there. Imagine, curiosity actually proving fatal to felines. Meee-OW! The phrase doesn’t actually spell out the fact that it was the cat’s own curiosity that did him in. Perhaps it is a human’s curiosity that puts […]
