As I sit here at Madonna Rehabilitation hospital, I am reminded virtually every minute that life is ever so precious, and things can change forever in a split second. As I have been telling people, if you think you have it bad, just spend a couple of weeks here, and you will rise and shine every morning with a big smile and make it a habit to give thanks to God for your many blessings!

I sit here this morning, as we now are getting very good sleep and I am getting ba...

After last week’s blog post, there were some comments, and some communications to me as to why we don’t ask for help, and after some further stimulating thought, I think we should talk about some of the reasons why we don’t ask for help. The following are what I believe to be our top reasons as to why we don’t ask for help!

1. We don’t want to look stupid to anyone we may reach out to. How many times have you sat in a meeting or a classroom and had a question on your...

Man is it not some of the craziest wacko times you have ever seen!?! We have the uncertain times of a virus, and then on top of that, we have the protests, destruction, and occupations taking place. I have always said that we need to pay attention to our surroundings, daily events, and be aware, but the reality is, most of the “noise” out there we can’t change. Reality is, almost all of us don’t have the answers. It’s confusing, and if focused on enough, it is well...

The other day I was having a meeting with a group of people about helping shape conversations and the culture of our small town into something very positive as words create worlds. And gossip creates suspicions, and suspicions create distrust. But deeper than that, this group of people help shape and create our world in our small town, and it was a group of people that I knew may disagree with what I had to say, the perspective and thought process I was prepared to...

Most of us have many thoughts every day. We could be thinking about what errands need to run today, or what all activities do our kids need to be delivered to, or what phone calls need to be made today. You then commingle those with the thousand fleeting thoughts a day on your creative and imaginary genius of new ideas creating small positive fires in your mind and soul.

For me, I was able to keep my life its calendar of events, my Rolodex, and to-do lists all in my...

We as humans often fail as we “fall for the free stuff”. There are free goods around every corner and some search out those free goods. If you have gone to college in the last 25 years, you have likely been told you could get a free t-shirt if you “just fill out this credit card application”. And I fell for it! In return, I got a credit card, which for virtually all college-aged kids and epic fail decision. The card brings no value or upside potential to your life....

We have all heard the saying "Patience is a virtue."  It is said often enough, but I’m not sure we truly know the meaning.  So to dig a little deeper, the definition of patience is one’s ability to wait for something without frustration. It's a useful skill and an important aspect of a leader’s personality.  My own impatience has literally cost me thousands of dollars, whether it is me walking through the grocery store and making too many impulse purchases, or think...

It was a while back, but I was listening to an audiobook and it was discussing the tangible aspects of achievements.  There are many awards given out today to adults, kids, the Hollywood crowd, Nashville crowd, sports figures, etc.  There seem to be more and more awards, shows, and opportunities to receive a tangible award to honor the achievements of many different avenues in life.  We also discuss the insight into the kid’s sports world and the effects of the prev...

Our breadth of work as we go about our days is always limited by our knowledge and our abilities.  Much like growing up as a kid playing sports, our playing time was based upon and on our ability, the coach thought we had to help win the game.  Sports has a unique way of typically bringing to light the level of competence and ability to “fill the role” expected of the person in a certain position.  And when push comes to shove, 80% or more of coaches put a product o...

We all make decisions for a living, be it at work, at home, in life, or as a family.  Sometimes we make good decisions that allow positive progress to be made and sometimes we make decisions that negatively affect our personal or family progress or progress of ideas, work, or new ventures and adventures.  If the decision made doesn’t work or does work, regardless of success, it is called sunken cost.  And a sunken cost is a cost that has already been incurred and ca...
