Is There Ever Any Doubt In Your Mind Who’s In Control?

The right equipment helps us perform better. In line at the Apple Store last week.

The more we talk about being organized, the more we preach it, the more we practice it, the more we teach it – guess what happens?

Exactly.

I work on it every day (even when I don’t feel like it), because…

Apathy and self-pity never take a day off.

West Orange Times

What motivates and inspires people to take action?  Words, and phrases.

Here a few from last Thursday’s West Orange Times.  Our small town newspaper is mailed once each week.  There was a center page section full (13 total) of ads.

  • Building Life-Changing Christian Relationships (Church)
  • WELLTRAX (Wellness Center)
  • Reinvent Yourself! (Education)
  • your next level (advertising)
  • Elevate Your Image (advertising)
  • Strengthen Your Brand (advertising)

Phrases and words have some sort of magical power to travel to the part of our brain that says, “You can do better.”

With New Year’s Eve six weeks away, people begin asking, “What can I do better?”

What is one of the craziest , or perhaps high impact New Year’s Resolutions you’ve ever made?

Happy Saturday To Everyone

Do you have weekends off?  I do not.  Never have.  Don’t get me wrong, sometimes I do have Saturday and Sunday off together. However, it’s nothing I can count on.  And I’m okay with that.

Why?

Because I work in Central Florida, and many people here have a job that revolves around the world-class Orlando Destinations – Disney World, Universal Studios, Sea World, Florida beaches.

In fact, our home is next door to Disney.  Our Church is next door to Universal Studios.  Sea World is not far either. Our Cub Scout Pack is currently camping at Fort Desoto Beach on Florida’s west coast.

Interesting to note though, my wife Cheryl has had weekends off her entire life.  We, like many Families, just have to figure it out.  And when we do get to have a Saturday off together, we try to balance all the stuff we need to do, with all the stuff we want to do.

The fact that it’s going to be sunny and 82 degrees today should make it easier to decide.  Carpe diem.
