"You will find the road to your future by exploring the backroads of your past" We are all the sum of our experiences up to this point. That doesn't mean we're destined to follow the same path into our future. But instead, we can look back into the past and determine where it is we want …

“The heart may believe in itself, but the ears will believe what others say.” Back in the day (we won’t even discuss how long ago that was) the neighborhood bully was usually that kid that would punch me in the stomach and take my lunch money. I knew exactly who it was and I had choices. …

“We can learn a lot from a box of crayons. Some are sharp, some are pretty, some have weird names and each one is a different color. Yet they all have learned to live in the same box.” When I was a young manager of people I believed that everyone had to do things my …

“You will witness a miracle.”  Most of us will read these words and think to ourselves, “Yeah right. Miracles, if they exist at all, only happen once in forever.” I know in the past when I thought about miracles, I believed it had to be some great event. Like aliens landing and bringing us world …

“Make ‘living’ your dream and you won’t have to dream about living.” Our family gatherings have always been filled with nostalgic glimpses into a much simpler life.
