Just … Go.

People used to just go. Pursuing your dreams is a trending topic today, but, it’s not new. Perhaps it’s simply that we’ve moved too far away from our freedom. Bobby Womack’s father was a preacher who kicked him out of the house at age sixteen. He didn’t want Bobby to sing R&B, instead of Gospel.Continue reading “Just … Go.”

“The Big Picture” by Brittany Fichter

Brittany Fichter doesn’t just write about neurological disorders, education, and loving life by the grace of God; she lives them. Her blog posts are as thoroughly researched as any that I’ve come across, and they have a certain authenticity woven into them that you can’t miss.

Fear Of Freedom

I grew up as the fourth generation member of a family business, but my family hoped I would do … anything different. I had no idea what I wanted to do. Many of my peers were the same way; not sure what we would become. Why? I think perhaps one element is that we, orContinue reading “Fear Of Freedom”

The Flip-Side Of Depression

I’ve written extensively that trying to hold back your thoughts and emotions can lead to depression. First comes helplessness. Then hopelessness. Finally, despair. At that point, you’re probably in a depression and, suicide is the unfortunately common response to the problem. There’s a flip-side to that path. We are emotional beings.

The Greatest Super Bowl Ever

Super Bowl 48 was a let-down for many fans this year, a blow-out victory that was over as soon as it began.

For me, it was the greatest Super Bowl ever. I never thought that would be possible afterContinue reading “The Greatest Super Bowl Ever”

Sunday Share: Doing Business In America

I could complain about the stack of parking tickets New York City earnestly hands our drivers every week, the Affordable Care Act raising our small business’ health insurance premiums, or the fines and taxes that other regulatory agencies such as the FDA or DOT impose, but I don’t think that Ruslan Telkov would very muchContinue reading “Sunday Share: Doing Business In America”

Oh, You’re Not a Blogger?

Why do I have a desire to take the darkest, worst things about me; all of my failures, mistakes, and shortcomings – and blog about them? Because those make the best blog posts. Those make real blog posts. They make me want to live better. But man, it is scary to hit the PUBLISH buttonContinue reading “Oh, You’re Not a Blogger?”

Shut Down Your Email Inbox

Do you work with your Email open all day? This is a bit of a tough habit to break, but you have to realize that email is not a conversation or a chat. It’s a message exchange. People don’t always send, receive, or read things when you want them to. As a result, you end upContinue reading “Shut Down Your Email Inbox”

Unsubscribe From Time

I ‘turned 34’ today as I write this, though at the stroke of midnight, no gong sounded to signify this glorious occasion. This concise post by Seth nails the idea. Note the title: “Time Doesn’t Exist Until We Invent It.” Time is a concept we subscribe to. Can you change the fact that school starts at 6:57Continue reading “Unsubscribe From Time”
