Seeds of Time – The Difference in Success and Poverty


The Currency of Earth

To be aware of time is one of the biggest differences between people living in poverty and people enjoying prosperity.

Time is our greatest gift.

Time is the currency of earth.

When I go to the grocery store on a Friday afternoon, I observe people with carts full […]

Lesson From the Keyboard (think music!)


By now, most of you know that I’m involved in this 30-day blogging challenge, sponsored by my good friend and teacher, Connie Ragen Green, from Santa Clarita, CA. Being a lover of words and writing in general, the challenge isn’t about the writing, but about the discipline of actually doing it everyday. When we […]

Pursue Excellence – Not Perfection!


Most of us know, at least in theory, that the pursuit of perfection is harmful, and rarely achievable anyway. So do we just settle for mediocrity? No, there’s another answer — pursue excellence! And it does require pursuit. You won’t just casually bump into excellence while meandering along the path of life. Quality is […]

My Little Men

Strange question, huh? Here’s the story…

My son and his family were visiting the week of Easter. I have two “little men”, ages 2 and 4. Since they were leaving the next morning, I was packing in all the time I could with both of them. I had read […]

It seems that everywhere I look right now, I am aware of anticipation. When a thing is repeated, in my daily thought life or in actuality, I take that as a sign to think about it and study it…to see what life lesson is staring me in the face. I think I’m onto something […]

My husband and I love to ride our BMW motorcycles. One day I was riding alone on a country road. Everything was perfect – I could smell spring in the air; it was one of those glorious days for riding. Then, the ride became bumpy and I struggled to keep control, wildly looking around […]

We’re Not in Kansas Anymore! – A Crucial Understanding for Small Business Success


In the 1939 movie, The Wizard of Oz, Dorothy said to her dog Toto… “I have a feeling we’re not in Kansas anymore.” That statement has become synonymous with being put into new situations where we’re not entirely comfortable and we’re not entirely familiar with the landscape. That’s exactly where small business owners find […]

I Want to Play Like Phil (No, not golf!)


I always watch the final round of the Masters Golf Tournament, if for no other reason than to enjoy the beautiful setting…perfectly manicured greens and fairways, not a weed in sight, the azaleas in bloom and the birds chirping away, announcing that summer is just around the corner.

Today’s final round was as exciting […]
