All That Glitters

Beware shiny objects.I have a friend who's easily distracted.In fact, two friends like that.

Their distractions can derail … Continue reading All That Glitters

Ah January. The month when resolve meets reality. For those making resolutions January is the cold slap of truth as well as weather: resolutions are often grand in scope and promise yet weak in design and strength. We give up on most in days. But what if you could take just one step and turn … Continue reading Wasting Time

Many a person has won back a measure of self-discipline and dignity by returning to work or through advancement. Work is a good … Continue reading Working
