Delaying Gratification

When you were a little kid, if they gave you a marshmallow and told you that you could eat it now, or wait four minutes and get a second marshmallow, which would you have done? They studied thousands of kids in the experiment, 1/3 of which waited for a second…

Paper or plastic? Neither. BYOB!

It's not so easy.  Here's how paper and plastic stack up side by side: To make all the bags we use each year, it takes 14 million trees for paper and 12 million barrels of oil for plastic. The production of paper bags creates 70 percent more air pollution than…

A World of Choices, A Choice of Worlds

There are so many lives we can lead; each with a (very) different experience of life on earth for us. Teacher, surfer, parent, missionary, engineer, athlete, traveller, businessman, bartender, archaeologist, goes on and on and include the variables of place (where).  Each is an entire world to be immersed…

The Unsustainable Water Bottle

People need to drink 8 to 13 glasses of water a day.  But if we get that water from plastic water bottles we have a big problem. Americans throw away 50 million plastic water bottles a day that ARE NOT recycled.  That's nearly 20 BILLION bottles a year - and…

“Ever Changing Truth”

As we grow, what we thought was true, changes.  If we keep growing and learning, this pattern becomes so obvious, that we learn to hold onto what we think is true quite loosely - because we understand we are likely to change our mind in the future. Are there things…

“Good with people”

You know a few - people who are half as smart as you and half as talented - but they get twice the results with others. Chances are they are just better with people.  Attitude, respect, communication, personality, caring, optimism - and just plain smiling. Are you "good with people"?


Years have passed and we learned a lot of stuff through experience.  We made some of it mean things about ourselves - "I can't", "we can't", "I'll never be...", "I'm just a...". But it's never too late to learn new things and make new decisions about ourselves. If you don't…
