Friends

Friends. I am sure that you have many of them and each one has a different relationship with you. There are friends that you go to lunch with. There are friends that you gossip with. There are friends that you go to the local ballgame with. There are friends that you...

If I Had A Million Dollars

Have you heard the song, “If I Had a Million Dollars?” by the Bare Naked Ladies? It is a song that talks about what they would do if they had a million dollars. Have you ever thought about having a million dollars? What would you do with it? Yea, I know, in today’s...

Do You Have A Vision?

How many of you out there dream of a better tomorrow? How often do you sit around and dream of a better life than you have right now? We can always think of something better than we have right now. It does not mean that we do not like what we have today, but we always...

Writing

On the weekends, I make my way to Starbucks, have my Chi, and write. I like getting up and writing as part of my day. I never know what I am going to write about and sometimes the writing makes its way to my blog. Why only sometimes? Well, there are a few reasons;...

Whose Happiness Are You Responsible For?

Think about it. List all the names of people that you are responsible for their happiness. Let’s see, your spouse or significant other, list all your children. Are their family members on that list? How about co-workers, or people you manage? Should I keep going? Are...

Shine on Me!

Since the early days of the Internet, I have had at least one website. They have been filled with useful information and were very functional, but they have never really looked beautiful. When people ask me if I can help them with a website, I say yes, and that it...

Urgent or Important?

How many of you are sitting at your computers right now waiting for that next email? I know that I am guilty of that. I will sometimes sit there and just stare at my inbox waiting for that next email to arrive so that I can act on it right away with urgency. When did...

Happy Father’s Day

Happy Father’s Day to all those fathers in the world! Yes, I am a father as well. I have had the pleasure to be not only a biological father, but also a step-father. As a step-father, I never tried to replace my step-children’s father. I just tried to be me and have a...

Happy Birthday Mom

Today would have been my mother’s 75th birthday. It is hard to believe that just about 5 years ago, we lost my mother. I think about her often. Somedays more than others and today is one of those days.  For her 70th birthday, we planned a surprise birthday party...

Are You Watching Your Thoughts?

Have you ever taken a moment and thought about your thoughts? Yes, I know that we have thousands of them every day and I have a hard time remembering even a few of them, but your thoughts have an impact on your interactions with others. If you do not believe me, sit...

What Do You Want?

Have you ever sat down and thought about what you wanted? I know I have several times and I believe I have probably written about it at least once. I know that life is really what you make of it and what you want. I have had a hard time defining what I want from life....

Happy Birthday to Me

Today is my birthday! Happy Birthday to me! I am 52 years old and, most days, I do not feel old. One thing that I have realized over the years is that time goes by very quickly. When I was young, I could not wait to grow up and now that I am past the “grown up” age, I...

How Often Do You Judge People?

After writing last week about being responsible and Hoʻoponopono, I really started to notice my judgements. During my long commute to, and from, the office, when somebody cuts me off, my judgements start to flow and calling them a “jerk”, and jerk is the PG rated...

Are You Responsible?

Are you responsible? That is a pretty broad question. One of the first questions that comes to mind is, “responsible for what?” And I think that is the question. I have been pondering the question of responsibility a fair bit this week. So, let’s start simply. Are you...

What Do You Feel About Money?

What is money to you? Is it something good? Is it the root of all evil? Is it something that just flows for you? For me, I have always seemed to have enough money to get by. Yes, there have been times where I have lived paycheque to paycheque and really wondered where...

Who are you at work?

When you show up to work, do you let your role define you or do you define your role? If you are just an individual contributor in the organization, do you let your role define you? Do you only think in terms of individual contributor, or do you think greater than...

What were your experiences in 2014?

2014 is about to end and I was sitting here thinking about what happened for me in 2014. The first thing that comes to my mind is all the travel that I did for work. I travelled a lot. I might have been away from home more than I was at home. If not, it sure felt like...
