A 'Tweener

Friday, December 28, 2012

Friday, another day between the holidays. This time each year finds me doing catch-up stuff as business slows down. It is a good time for reflecting and planning. What worked last year and what didn't. What should we continue and what should we scrap. After today, it is nearly non-stop football until about 11:00 Tuesday night. I love watching football and have learned to do so without the obligatory beer and pretzels (and potato chips and cake and candy etc etc etc)

As AL Ciraldo, the legendary broadcaster for Georgia Tech used to say, "There's the toot of the whistle, kicker moves forward, TOE MEETS LEATHER and we are underway!"

    I agree, this is a time to reflect and a time to plan what and how to improve.
I enjoy the quite, but always hope it doesn't last too long.

Write It Down!

Thursday, December 27, 2012

Reduce your plan to writing. The moment you complete this, you will have definitely given concrete form to the intangible desire.

    For sure! If it isn't written, it's not real . . . at least in my world!

Merry Christmas to All

A Christmas Blessing

During this Christmas season,

May you be blessed 

With the spirit of the season, 

which is peace,

The gladness of the season,

which is hope,

And the heart of the season,

which is love

.


Somehow, not only for Christmas

But all the long year through,

The joy that you give to others

Is the joy that comes back to you.

And the more you spend in blessing

The poor and lonely and sad,

The more of your heart's possessing

Returns to you glad.

~John Greenleaf Whittier

Luxury is a State of Mind!

Monday, December 24, 2012

Everyone can have a luxury life. It's a state of mind. It's not necessarily about having the biggest house. It's about living life to the fullest.

    Just think what people who lived 100 years ago thought what luxury was compared to what we have today.
We have much to be thankful for.
