If you think you can, you can!
Saturday, March 21, 2009      1 comments

Henry Ford said that whether you think you can or you think you can't, you're right! Much has been written on the Power of Positive Thinking (N. V. Peale) and Positive Mental Attitude (WE. Clement Stone & Napoleon Hill). Positive thinking by i... Read more
Time is the currency of life, spend it wisely!
Friday, March 20, 2009      1 comments

If at the beginning of every day you were handed 1,440 ten dollar bills and told you could spend them on anything you wanted but at midnight they became non-negotiable and worthless, you would be careful what you spent the money on and you woul... Read more
Be the best you that you can be!

I believe it was Wayne Dyer who quoted one of the older self-help philosophers that we each must account for our lives but when called upon to do so, we will not be asked "Why didn't you find a cure for cancer?' of "Why didn't you set a new worl... Read more
Don't Worry!, Be Happy!
Wednesday, March 18, 2009      0 comments

In a song that was popular several years ago, Bobby McFerrin advised us "Don't Worry!, Be Happy!" This is about as good advice as you can get. People who have studied worry have discovered that over 92% of the things we worry about fall into f... Read more
Erin Go Braugh! Ireland Forever!
Tuesday, March 17, 2009      0 comments

The raucous celebration of St Patrick's Day has perpetuated the perception of the Irish as a group of hard drinking partying people and that they are. The Irish are also hard working industrious people without whom the railroads in this country... Read more
Thoughts on Huddling
Sunday, March 15, 2009      0 comments

It is easy to pick one of the pre-programmed thoughts in the team huddles each day but this does me no good. Like the response to "how are you doing" which I addressed yesterday, for the most part the only one who reads my posts in the huddles ... Read more
Get Off of First Base
Saturday, March 14, 2009      0 comments

The "thought" accompanying one of my Spark People e-mails today was that you cannot become what you can be by remaining what you are. This is similar to the adage quoted by the self-help gurus that you cannot reach second base with your foot on... Read more
How do you do? Terrible or Terrific?
Friday, March 13, 2009      0 comments

We great each other in this country and ask How do you do? What a dumb way to ask a simple question. How are you? When most people ask you one of these questions, it is because they think it is expected of them. They do not care! If you don... Read more
Act as if!
Thursday, March 12, 2009      1 comments

Students of the human mind tell us that our minds cannot tell the difference between what actually happens and what is vividly visualized. Therefore, it is imperative to fill your mind with positive thoughts. Abraham Lincoln said it was his ob... Read more
Wonderful Wednesday
Wednesday, March 11, 2009      0 comments

I've used this title before but it bears repeating. Wednesday is popularly referred to as "Hump Day". This is a bad analogy because once you get over the hump you are going downhill. Maybe it is a little easier to coast downhill but the benef... Read more
Springtime in Georgia

Last Monday schools were closed because of snow. Friday it was 70, Saturday and Sunday 75, yesterday and today 80. Springtime in Georgia is a tease. I know there will be at least one more brush with winter before spring gets here for good but... Read more
Glorious Monday!
Monday, March 09, 2009      0 comments

Monday is a day of new beginnings. Most people look at Monday as having the whole week in front of them challenging them to last until Friday. Monday is the beginning of another chance to excel. Frankly, most weekends are periods of stagnatio... Read more

The home computer took a lightening strike. i had an extra at the office so I brought it home. Then I had to install the modem and some other stuff that wasn't necessary at the office because it is wired differently. I soon learned that this ... Read more

Fridays are nice days. people tend to be nicer on Friday. they think because it is the end of the work week, that is reason to feel better about the day and themselves. i am a beneficiary of their beneficience. While I do not subscribe to th... Read more
