Happiness is an attitude. We either make ourselves miserable, or happy and strong. The amount of work is the same.

— Francesca Reigler

When do we get old? I think we get old when we think that there’s no more possibility of success, that one day’s struggle leads nowhere but to tomorrow’s struggle. And life can do that to you. We all hit rough patches that wear us out. And sometimes we get so worn out that we forget to see the beauty and possibility around us.

Last week I met a young woman with so much energy and hope and promise and possibility that she floored me. Her name is June and she is a:

  • Day trader
  • Disney character (one of the chipmunks – no, I didn’t ask which one)
  • College student
  • Ebay vendor
  • iPhone application programmer
  • Wife

We’re stilled amazed by some of the creative, immersive and, yes, down right wacky things to be found on the internet.  Today’s find is all those things and just a little bit more:

Ain’t got a plan?  Create one! Even one as vague as “place the big rocks first and then work around ’em to get the little stuff done.”  You’ve probably heard this little ditty before: Continue reading » Start with a Plan!

Frustration, although quite painful at times, is a very positive and essential part of success.

— Bo Bennett

Everybody gets stuck occasionally.  By its very nature, being stuck is uncomfortable.  It feels like being out of control because we don’t choose being stuck.  Sometimes, we don’t even realize that we’re stuck until a significant amount of time has passed.

That’s what happened to me.  This last weekend was a holiday weekend for me.  I had been looking forward to three whole days of catching up on sleep, relaxing reading, and studying.

Then, the weekend came… and I couldn’t seem to get any Continue reading » You Don’t Need to Stay Stuck – 5 Ways to Get Unstuck

Mt Rushmore - Presidents Day

Wacky Wednesday #40 – Presidents’ Day Holiday — The Big Lie

Did you get the day off for President’s Day?  Hah!  Got you!  There is no federal holiday called “Presidents’ Day”, and there never has been.  Oh sure, a few States have adopted that name, but once you go down that road you have to start including non-presidents in the celebration list (see the Wikipedia article on Washington’s Birthday, Arkansas’ observances in particular).

So who’s responsible for the Continue reading » Wacky Wednesday #40 – Presidents’ Day Holiday — The Big Lie
