Create an Experience

As we creep towards the end of the year and the holidays are looming, I’m wondering how many of you are thinking of times past instead of present. As we get older, it seems more about remembering what was rather than what is. I think back to the holidays when...

The World of Possibilities

Here you are–in the over 50 crowd. Some say you’re halfway through your life and others say it is just beginning–but what do you say? There is so much opportunity out there and even though you are often considered the “new unemployable,”...

Happy Veterans Day

Hopefully, you all remembered to celebrate yesterday and honor our veterans. These are brave men and women who put their lives on the line for all of us. Sometimes I think we only focus on them when there is a holiday or a terrible event that happens. And I believe we...

One More Hour of Sleep!

We are now back in the sunlight of early morning and the getting dark early and not being able to see where you’re going! And although I love getting up with light, I don’t like it getting dark so early. But now you have no more excuses for not getting in...

Push Yourself

As you go through your day,do you do it by rote? Are you so used to what your day is like, that there are no surprises? That happens when you aren’t invoking anything new into it. It’s certainly easier when you do that as it doesn’t take much effort,...

Remember Your Why

So many forget why they started what they did and just keep doing it out of habit. Have you ever noticed that when you learn a new skill or find a new technique you begin to use it but when you are in a rush or need to get to an answer quickly, you revert back to your...

Get Uncomfortable

What would you have to tackle to feel uncomfortable? For me, it’s anything to do with technology. What is it for you? Could it be learning a new language, or studying a new subject, or going for a new job or even meeting a new group of people. As you get older,...

Possibility Starts With Imagination

I just got back from the Veterans Speakers Retreat, where I was named as a Legend of the Speaking Profession back in 2007. Our last session was one where we picked a key ring with a saying on it. We had no idea what that saying would be until we opened the package....

Be The Change You Want To See

Gandhi said it best didn’t he? There are some doubts as to whether he did or didn’t, however I am one who is happy to give the credit to him. So many are ready to delegate to someone else rather than take on the responsibility themselves, We all talk a...

The Power of Nice

It doesn’t take much to be nice to others. A simple smile, a thank you, a helping hand now and then, and really just paying attention to others. I am also amazed and impressed with the generosity of the people who are helping out with the fires by providing for...

Do You Test Yourself?

Take The First Step

This is from an article I wrote 20 years ago. It’s scary how the theme is the same. Here’s part of it. Life is a golden ring. It’s opportunity waiting to happen. It can be whatever you want it to. Do you believe that? If not, you definitely should be...

Never Give Up!

Most of you know how important mindset is to me. And hopefully it’s a positive one. I so believe that how you think, act and treat people are all results of how you live your life. And the result it provides. I meet so many people who are defeated. And...

Are You On Autopilot?

I hope you are having a great Memorial Holiday. Sometimes we forget what the holiday actually means. Memorial Day is a great day of remembrances and if my dear friend Conni were still with us, she would be celebrating more than anyone. She was a WW2 Marine, and never...

Do You Love Your Life?

To all you S.O.B’s out there, this is a very important question.  Once you hit the mid-century mark, you start asking questions. Where did the time go? Now that I’ve taken care of everyone, is it my time–yet? I have worked all my life to get a...

A Slip Is Not A Fall

Someone said that as I sat in a meeting for the Ambassadors Board of Nova Southeastern U. It really struck a nerve. So many times just a little thing goes wrong and we beat ourselves up over it. When all the while, we have worked hard, done a really great job and yet...

Spring Has Sprung?

I say that with a question mark because of all the crazy weather that has been going around. However with that in mind, and as we start the month of May, some of you might have been wondering when the new tide will start. The start being your business taking off, your...
