It’s Time For A Jump-Start

Posted on Tuesday, January 15, 2013 in Emotional, How To, Spiritual, Values

Sometimes, I wrote yesterday, when our hearts are exposed we seem like a car in need of a jump-start: cold, (e)motionless and hard as steel.

I asked: How’s your character?

Does Your Character Need A Jump-Start?

Our music affects us.
Does yours lift you up or tear you down?

Our friends’ influence us.
Do your friends build your character or burden your conscience?

Our books teach us
Is  your reading list bad, neutral or helpful? Why settle for bad or neutral?

Our mentors guide us
Do you follow your mentor’s lead or make excuses and postpone progress?

Coming Clean. Staying Clean.

Posted on Thursday, January 3, 2013 in Emotional, How To, Relational, Spiritual, Values

I returned to my office following a week of vacation.  It was just as I left it.
– Books on the bookshelves organized, neat, and flush with the front of the shelf.
– CDs in the rack free of fingerprints and scratches.
– File folders in five file drawers alphabetized, organized, and current.

Lot’s of things were properly cared for before I left.

Coming Clean

That’s not all there is in my office.

My desk is a mess.
I had unsorted papers in bins.
I had unsorted CDs stacked.
