05/17/2017 – Gratitude Challenge Day 7

05/16/2017 – Gratitude Challenge Day 6

I am so grateful for music.  It has the power to change moods in seconds.  I cannot imagine a world without music.  I think back to the movie The Shawshank Redemption when the main character Andy locks himself in the wardens office and plays a record that costs him time in the hole.  He makes a commentContinue reading “05/16/2017 – Gratitude Challenge Day 6”

05/15/2017 – Gratitude Challenge Day 5

05/14/2017 – Gratitude Challenge Day 4

Gratitude day 4 is all about support and community.  The journey is so much harder when you try to go it alone.  I know this first hand as my default is to isolate and attempt to figure stuff out on my own…what a fantastic waste of time!  It takes at least twice as long ifContinue reading “05/14/2017 – Gratitude Challenge Day 4”

05/07/2017 – If You Spot It You Got It…

Wow what a revelation, All the things that I get upset about in others are things I am seeing that I am guilty of myself more than I know.  Being impatient, not cleaning up after yourself, judging, poor communication, etc.  I did not realize until I heard the phase that is also the title ofContinue reading “05/07/2017 – If You Spot It You Got It…”

05/01/2017 – Repost “The Stoic Entrepreneur’s 7 Maxims of Personal Growth”

JULY 18, 2016 Philosophy’s absence from the business world is a crucial mistake. By and large ignored by popular culture and forgotten by the media, modern philosophy has been delegated to the classrooms by its own doing.
