Scratch to do lists. What’s on your not to do list?

Chances are if I ask what’s on your to-do list you’ll be able to pull 1 (or 10) out of your Blackberry, IPhone, daytimer and/or nightstand.  Or out of your brain matter if you’re not the scribing type.  Chances are your list is long.  Chances are it weighs you down.

What’s real? Take a second look to find the White Hot Truth

What appears real in our hurry flurry world often isn’t.   Authenticity is big.   Being real is in. Not being true is passe.  Being fake is to be a flake. How do you tell the difference though?  What appears shiny and true can either be a golden nugget or a trashy piece of styrofoam. […]
