On Friday I went to the Mighty offices to participate in a Goal Setting session with Jim Rohn. I’ve done the exercises before, but not in a couple of years. Every year I write goals for myself and then I review them at the end of the year, […]

Freedom to Choose

Sometimes we need a little reminder of the basics of life. Listening to Covey as I write for Sammy … some highlights: Don’t you feel better when the weather outside is great? What if you could carry your own weather with you? You could always feel great no […]

Sweet Talk

Of course in the computer crash I lost all my music again, except for what’s on my mp3 player, so I haven’t been really quick to load up again, have taken instead to listening to the radio. Virgin Xtreme is right up my alley with Kate Nash followed […]

Happy Christmas!

I’m so over Merry y’all. It’s days past the big day and I’m just getting into it. Well, maybe I’m not getting into the Christmas thing at all, just the New Year thing, but no matter my belly is fluttery with butterflies and I’m excited about life! Maybe […]

What A Morning!

I’m having a great day! I packed my backpack with scribblers, books and pens, strapped it on and headed off over the hill. Even though I was going to the Goodie Shop restaurant, I went through the Ritchie Wharf and walked along the water for a way. Just […]

Fuel of Achievement

Listening to Brian Tracy this morning as he speaks about the fuel of achievement. Determine all the reasons why you want the goal, Brian says before quoting Nietzsche: “A man can bear any what if he has a big enough why.” If you want it badly enough, you […]


Would you cut off both your arms for a million dollars? Five million? Ten? How about your sight? Would you give up your eyesight for ten million dollars? What about the ability to walk? Would you trade your legs for twenty million dollars? Forget about the physical stuff […]

Faking It

“Fake it until you make it.” This phrase has been hitting me over the head today. This morning I have read this or some version of it about six times. I’ve only been up four hours! That’s a lot of times! Just last week I reaffirmed this advice […]

2 AM Just Breathe

So this getting up at 6 every morning and still staying up all night may be getting to me during the day with fuzzy brain sleepiness. Today, I might even nap. It’s not that I’m not tired at 9pm. It’s not that I don’t desperately want to go […]

Walk Away Kel

I nearly pissed myself laughing last night. I’ve started listening to Podcasts while I have dinner. It helps to kill two birds with one stone. First, it keeps me from popping in a DVD and mindlessly vegging in front of the TV for two hours while I eat. […]
