Under the Weather, Literally

Fellow viewers and listeners of the podcast, I've been under. Not only is the weather giving me a beating, but I've had Bronchitis for the last two weeks. My voice is shot, thus the reason for no podcasts. In my part of the country the windchill has hit an unbelievably cold -60 degrees. But, at... Continue Reading →

Work It!

Yesterday's post (Quote Roulette #8) talked about the power of small habits stacked or chained on top of one another. How they can create over time some incredible changes towards achievements we want. There are systems in use all around us. Ones we can see or feel as well as ones we cannot. Think about...

One of the ways that I find peace is to pay debts. Not the credit card kind. I don't think anyone really enjoys paying those back. There is some time in your life you've had to feel a debt owed you had to pay back. The tug that you need to pay someone or something... Continue Reading →

Planning November Learning

As the snow begins to fall for the first time this season the change is happening rather quickly from fall to winter months. I love it. I'd like to take a little of this post to close out October's learning and results, then give you some ideas into November I am going to play with.... Continue Reading →

Been a Bit

Hello. I'm back! After some down time and some country traveling (which I totally should have been blogging during) I'll be getting back into my regular rhythms of posting for you. I got one post out during that time of travel, but for the past couple of weeks I've been dormant. It was so good... Continue Reading →
