Walk A Mile in His/Her Shoes.

Wednesday, July 25, 2012      10 comments

I really like the SP program and I like to read other people's blogs and comment. Before I comment on someone's blog that I don't know I try to read their Spark page and get a sense for the person. Even if I have a sense for the person I usual... Read more

Back In My Day!

Thursday, July 19, 2012      6 comments

I saw a commercial and Dad started his statement to his son with "Back in my day" and I realized that it's a phrase I have never used. With a son and seven grandkids I never used that phrase. I have told them about a few things in the past but... Read more

My Ups and Downs

Sunday, July 15, 2012      9 comments

I don't know about you but I occasionally have times(days or weeks) when I'm not very productive. I first noticed this when I was in my forties and when I hit those down times I would try everything to increase my productivity but I knew I wasn... Read more

Rewards - Do We really Need Them?

Friday, July 13, 2012      13 comments

I just read a Daily Blog about vacations as a reward. As I read it I began to wonder if personal rewards for things we need to do any way are a post TV thing created by the psychologists of the world. I had totally dismissed the idea of a rew... Read more

One Step at A Time

Sunday, July 08, 2012      8 comments

I started to blog about not even being close to succeeding with the SP program but I thought about how that would be a real downer for some. Instead I'll practice what I preach and talk about what I've accomplished at this point in the journey.... Read more

Qualities For Success

Monday, July 02, 2012      3 comments

While setting up my new computer and checking out the included word processor I came across a document. I can't positively state that I am the author but I thought it was worth sharing. There's a note at the end to Mike and in 2004, the year ... Read more

Wednesday, June 27, 2012      4 comments

Yesterday's daily blog was about 4 metabolism mistakes we make and I took exception with the one that said "Exercising in The Fat Burning Zone" is a mistake. I commented there that I disagreed that that blanket statement was wrong and I said wh... Read more

You've Got A Friend!!!

Sunday, June 24, 2012      10 comments

It's my nature to work hard at getting good at whatever I try. When I don't do well I look at what I've done and try to figure out what I can do to get better. When I do that I'm focusing on me and I don't like focusing on myself too much. It... Read more

I Like Father's Day

Thursday, June 14, 2012      7 comments

For most of my life I wanted everyone to ignore Father's Day. I considered it a silly holiday and I really don't like being fussed over. About 8 years ago I decided that I would enjoy Father's Day a lot more if I did the fussing so I began by ... Read more

Family First

Friday, June 08, 2012      4 comments

This week has been a series of high points. Today was the last day of school for my 10 yr. old grandson and that means my schedule isn't tied to his until August because I get him ready for school, drop him off, and pick him up. Now he and I c... Read more

The Lessons We Didn't Learn as Kids

Tuesday, June 05, 2012      7 comments
