The Origin of Success

The water was clear, there was a lot of beautiful coral and many varieties of tropical fish. On top of that, you didn’t even need a boat. There were numerous places where it was ... continue reading
The Power of Purpose
Some time ago I read a news report that was, actually, quite disturbing. It seems that there was a grossly overweight woman who was so immobile that she, literally, could not get up from the couch. That couch had been her home for about six years. She couldn’t get up to eat or even go to the bathroom.

Passion Pays
The house we live in is on a
half acre lot with lots of trees. It is a beautiful setting, but the

sticks. Since the sticks look bad and can do damage... continue reading

Get Your Employees Flying High
Years ago, when
I was in high school, I played running back on the football team. I was an OK
player - not great, but maybe a little better than average. I remember, though,

1 - 3 - 2? Three Steps to Success

There
is a Necessary Order




As
hard as it is to believe, I have heard of teachers who were willing to let
their students do the math wrong. Apparently the idea was to never do anything
that would hurt the child’s self-esteem. Even wrong answers could not be
counted as wrong.


Of
course, no one likes... continue reading
