It seems the new way of dealing with issues . . . begins with inflammatory posts on Social Media. I think this cheats the possibility of coping with the grief that comes in response to unexpected circumstances. For sure, things going your way is eminently important, isn’t it?

When inventory of available houses is near ZERO . . . Many Home Sellers get a little cocky. Some might even have the delusional thinking that this market is like shooting fish in a barrel. These unfortunate, misguided (or NOT guided) folks actually believe that they’ve got the Buyers by the horns...

Are you a Giver? Are you a Healthy Giver? Indeed, giving is noble and humbling when our gifts are received with gratitude. We givers don’t give to receive recognition . . . Most of us do this with anonymity. Is it possible to give too much or too little? Who’s the judge of gifting parity? Social ...

For many years, I’ve had a “love/Hate” relationship with #Comcast. Actually more hate than love for most of these years. I have only kept them as my internet provider because they have the best (most stable) product (FAST and reliable internet). My beef is that I had NEVER had a stellar customer ...

Most folks hate – yes – HATE accountability!  Many will shun accountability because they say it doesn’t work for them. So if accountability doesn’t work, what does? Are you just in that delusion cycle of chasing your tail – spinning in circles and not getting anywhere useful? Have you adopted the...

“IRL” = In Real Life Maybe I’m just a cantankerous curmudgeon, but I miss learning with other people in the same REAL place. For me, Virtual learning is less effective – less engaging – less “dimensional”. We miss the real nuances of the “material” sometimes because it’s so easy for us multitask ...

People who live low quality lives, by definition, underperform in their jobs. Stress, anxiety, exhaustion, always ON 24/7/365 are recipes for crash and burn. So often (especially in the Real Estate Sales Industry), I hear of “Professionals” who take great pride in the fact that they are working 1...

What if The darn thing isn’t doing what I bought it to do? When I buy a drill with all of the myriad bits, I expect each bit to reliably create a hole of the size promised on the etching. When the sole cashier gets in the weeds (too many people in line), we expect the management to do something a...
