Day 3 and Still Going

Just a quick update… I am completely out of shape.  I used to run 5 – 10 miles with no problem, but that was half a lifetime ago in college.  I am building toward running the entire mile, but for now it is run/walk for the mile.  Each day I have been able to increase my running distance by .1 of a mile.  But, lot’s of pre-marathon training left to…

Moving Forward in 2007

I like New Year’s Resolutions and Goal Setting.  I remember doing it back in high school and college.  In fact, one year I remember in particular was New Years of my Freshman year in college back in 1984.  I was at a New Years party at the Fellowship House in Springfield, IL.

One of My Main Career Goals

All the major gurus are always asking, “What are your goals?”  Well, a guy whose newsletter I read reminded me of my goal this week. Colin wrote in his newsletter that he traveled all summer in his new RV (driving an RV is not my goal).  He basically took the summer off and logged a total of about 30 hours of work… for the entire summer!! My career goal is…

All I Can Do

Art Williams wrote a book, “All You Can Do Is All You Can Do, But All You Can Do Is Enough.” In the fall of my sophomore year in college I was to give a 20-25 minute speech.  I was terrified.  I was procrastinating.  I felt I was incapable.  On that day of class I skipped.  The guilt, the defeat, the dissatisfaction with myself all but did me in that…
