Need help?

How is your life going?  If I'm not willing to help myself, there is not much anyone can do for me. Habits, eating, learning, effort, and attitude... Are you doing what you can to make things better for yourself and keep them that way?

"IDK what IDK"

When we don't know something, we tend to fill in information gaps with what seems probable and likely.  We literally make stuff up.  This creates blind spots where we thought we knew something. You know less than you don't know. You know less than you think you do know. Ignorance…

The Life and Times of YOU

When it's all over, (and it almost is), would this be a book worth reading? Would it be a tale of overcoming adversity?   Of love? Of commitment and honor and loyalty? Would it be a triumph or a tragedy? Would you be proud of it? Will you be missed? The…

How do you respond?

Two young boys were raised by an alcoholic father.  They grew older and each went his own way in the world.  As adults, they were interviewed by a psychologist who was analyzing the effects of drunkenness on children in broken homes. One was a clean living tea drinker and the…

Be happier this month

Do more of what you love, less of what you tolerate, and none of what you hate. What do you want to do more of?  Less of?  None of?

Create change quickly

A saw a friend the other day and he looked different.  He had lost a LOT of weight in a short period of time.  He said he just got sick of it and made a decision.  He was at a cookout with us, and he stayed on his plan.  He…
