Year In Review “Thank You”

Year In Review “Thank You”

I love this time of the year.  It's the time we look forward to the year to come with awe and excitement and wonder.  We dream and we vision what we will make.  We also take this time to look back.  What did we do?  What did we fail to do?  And hopefully, how did we...

During this time of year I try to look forward.  Not only do I look forward to the parties and the get-togethers with family and friends.  I also look forward to the coming year...and what I want that to look like.  So with that in mind I have given some thought to...

The Value is in Doing

The older I get, the less I value ideas. Don't get me wrong.  Ideas are fun!  There is something truly fun and magical about that time when you (or your team) has an idea that is exciting.  You get to take the idea out and consider the possibilities.  It can be...

Be The Change

I heard hundreds (nay thousands) of the people say it.  "I can't wait for this election to be over."  Hell, I said it...a lot.  But let me ask you something.  In the days after the election, "does it feel like it's over?"  Does it feel like the hate and anger and...

I saw this image today at church.  It's a great image and it always makes me smile.  It's a great reminder, the pastor said, that we should always be grateful.  No matter where we are, we probably did not get there on our own. It is a good reminder. But then something...
