The benefits of being “TOO BUSY”  You get to be choosy! When you’re “TOO BUSY”, it’s much easier to say “No!” to “Got a minute?”s. Suddenly the IMPORTANT things become more clear. Focus shifts from “doing what’s on the list” towards the things we “get” to do because they matter (more). You can un...
Who is this about?I took a deep breath (and a walk around the office) before sitting down to write this. I am a member of MANY on-line forums . . . and “real in-person” gatherings. All of them have clearly defined themes which serve a variety of populations. The ones relevant to me are about Open...
Always remember that every new week provides new possibilities. This is vibrant thinking . . . that you might not ever have thought of goals commensurate with your human potential.

FIGHT? – BLOW UP and Blame it on someone else and make a scene. FLIGHT? – Practice denial and ignore it in hopes it...
I see far too many people choosing this path of most resistance. These folks age MUCH faster than those who opt for the path least resistance. Not being who you are is exhausting. As is true with all lies, whether they be “innocent little white lies” or “persona/lifestyle lies”, the most difficul...
Pay attention to your surroundings. Be aware of subtle shifts and recurring happenings. Be curious when new and different ideas surface. Be a great “defensive driver” always honing your peripheral vision. Notice new patterns and themes showing up in your life experience. Often, the best opportuni...
Some folks might think this happening to be unconscionable!

Rather than “recreat...
