This process is ever going and growingSome six hundred odd days ago I wrote a little reflection about listening to myself.

I WAS actually a … Continue reading Knowing When To Really Listen and To Whom

Day 16 – What I Want To Do- 30 Days to Clearly Defining It

Now that I’m not watching as much TV, I find that the conversations & readings of that day come more readily to mind during day dreams, whereas they were only part of my sleepy dreams before… I haven’t been very good at remembering dreams in the past. Free the mind from passive input and big ideas grow. … Continue reading Day 16 – What I Want To Do- 30 Days to Clearly Defining It

Odds & Ends – What’s Next

I kinda didn’t take the day off yesterday… I just couldn’t sit still, so I started putting some order to the list of projects I want to add to my blog and I started to see connections… First, I want to thank my friend Richard Tardiff for planting seeds of connection throughout what I’ve been … Continue reading Odds & Ends – What’s Next

Day 28 – What I Want To Do- 30 Days to Clearly Defining It

On day 2 I admitted being at a loss for what to write and I haven’t been without a topic since… until today. I feel that I’ve been a little off the last couple of days…. not sure what to do with this desire to write, where to aim the energy and uncertainty about what … Continue reading Day 28 – What I Want To Do- 30 Days to Clearly Defining It

Day 19 – What I Want To Do- 30 Days to Clearly Defining It

Today, I want to inspire someone to pursue their dreams, no matter what those dreams consist of. So, today I’m talking about what so many of us confuse with our dreams or our purpose, and that is the pursuit of success. As always, this is my experience and my understand of all this, and I … Continue reading Day 19 – What I Want To Do- 30 Days to Clearly Defining It

Day 17 – What I Want To Do- 30 Days to Clearly Defining It

It’s possible I haven’t said everything I wanted about telling stories yet. Stories can be told in many ways and about so many things. Of course this realization comes to me from another Ted talk. Please take a few minutes to listen to Giles Duley’s  transformation from observer to storyteller, and how he discovered he … Continue reading Day 17 – What I Want To Do- 30 Days to Clearly Defining It

Day 15 – What I Want To Do- 30 Days to Clearly Defining It

Well, it’s been leading up to this, hasn't it? A few days ago, on Day 11 to be precise, I concluded that I want to tell stories. Not just any stories, but other people’s stories. Stories about the amazing things people do, even when they don’t realize they are amazing. More on this later… Can … Continue reading Day 15 – What I Want To Do- 30 Days to Clearly Defining It

Day 14 – What I Want To Do- 30 Days to Clearly Defining It

I want the courage to make a difference. I want to be as passionate & purposeful about this as Linda Cliatt-Wayman is with her call to action: “If You Are Going To Lead, LEAD!” Yesterday, I focused on starting a revolution in education. Educating people is a great & worthy challenge, and it requires action. … Continue reading Day 14 – What I Want To Do- 30 Days to Clearly Defining It
