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 … Read more

The Slight Edge

Have you read Jeff Olson’s book, The Slight Edge?  If you haven’t, you are missing something HUGE!! I truly believe, before you buy any other book, any other motivational tape, any other seminar, CD, or DVD, you need to buy this book and read it… whether you just read 10 pages per day or you dedicate the next 3 days to devouring this book (my … Read more

Becoming a Boring Person

Great stuff from Seth Barnes’ Blog today: “As people get older and more specialized, their creative, open-ended right brain that ran the show when they were children playing in the sand box, begins to wither and die. The orthopedic surgeon who has developed a certain kind of knee replacement is paid to do it a thousand times over. The carpenter builds variations on the same … Read more

Ideas for a book

One of my long time ambitions is to write.  I write all of the time.  For my M.A. degree I wrote a 165-page thesis.  I have started several books.  On the archives of my computer are several unfinished (and probably never will be finished) books. However, this time is different.  I have been sketching out a book that I would like to publish.  I was … Read more

When do you know it’s time for a change?

One of the toughest things to discern is when it is actually time for a change.  For me, the factors are: Should I persevere through a tough time? Is this opportunity for change merely a distraction? Is this the right time? Is this change exactly what I need at this time in my life? Has God brought this before me now? They aren’t easy questions … Read more

A company that can stand on its own

One of the things I have been disenchanted by the whole network marketing industry, multi-level marketing, or whatever you want to call it is that 99% of the companies couldn’t exist if they didn’t have some kind of “business opportunity” attached to it. In other words, would most of the travel, nutritional, and technology companies exist if they didn’t have an associate base?  Would the … Read more

I Can Retire Now

Just started my son in golf lessons.  He has his 2nd lesson today.  5 years old.  He is a natural I tell you.  In fact, I think I can go ahead and retire because he is now my 401k. Check out that form!! FYI – at the age of 5 he is hitting the ball almost 100 yards from the tee on some of his … Read more

A Nice Weekend

It was about 104 degrees in Dallas on Saturday.  A dry heat, though, so it makes life a bit more tollerable… except for Friday.  My transmission blew on my red car in Corinth, TX.  That is about 50 miles away from where I live.  Rather than getting my car towed, I decided to try and drive it home…. in 1st gear (the only gear that would … Read more

Let’s Get Started

Alright, we are under way.  The blog is officially open.  There aren’t going to be any real guidelines about what we talk about here… just a whole lot of this and that.  However, if you want to break down the posts, I suggest you click on the different categories over on the right. As we get rolling here, I will be posting some of the … Read more
