ITEM A.  Mind Over MatterThis is a great title and I am going to have to go into a stream of consciousness thing to develop it...We all know...what is really important.  What we should do next.  What can't wait to be done.  You have an inner voice that speaks to you.. and another that throws out ...
Don't worry, I am not here to sell anyone snake oil.  Just sharing a lesson learned.Yesterday I was bouncing around YouTube and one of the adverts got started that had to do with health.  So I listened for a few minutes and thought that the voice over sounded very honest and compelling.  The vide...
If you've waited too long and lagged behind somewhat If you think that there is no more left to do If you feel defeated because things don't seem to be working out If you've wasted opportunities and wish you could get your game back If you feel it's over at this point and there is no way to keep ...

Ever wonder where that 7 tap door knock routine came from?It was in a vaudeville play around 1899.  In musical terms it is a 'call and response' couplet of 7 notes.  It was used in many comedic routines and light music fare at the start and end of a tune.More seriously this shibboleth was used in...
No, this is not about a branding moment...We tend to do a lot of couch potato TV watching over weekends --especially if there are no good movies out.  And so we ended up late last night watching the original b/w film about Charles Dickens' classic "A Christmas Carol".  I think Charles titled his ...
I played football for only a short while in high school.  I did not follow it after that.  I preferred baseball and basketball.  Sports is a good analogy to assess your abilities to 'play' any game or operate a business and to judge whether you will succeed.Something is very clear in football: th...
I really haven't been much for motivational posts.  But after being on AR for several months now, I think I am a believer...A few weeks ago a good friend of mine here in Orlando - Carlene Julian, real estate agent of many years - mentioned the 2 ft. rule.  I had never heard of it.  We were talkin...
