Start with a Plan!

When you’re feeling overwhelmed by the barrage of demands that each day brings, when your goals seem out of reach – heed this good advice: Start with a plan!

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!

Is It Time for a Sprint Or Maybe a Fartlek?

We’re coming up on year-end… is it time for a sprint to the finish line?

‘Nobody Beats Us!’ According to our plan, when I said these words toward the end of the race, we would immediately shift into our final sprint, rowing as high and hard as possible, straight through, until we crossed the finish line.

— Brad Alan Lewis
from Assault on Lake Casitas

It’s that time of year when many of us take a bead on how we’ve done on the goals we set for ourselves. And, with the holidays now in full swing, it’s also time to figure out how to take care of Continue reading » Is It Time for a Sprint Or Maybe a Fartlek?

Ever give yourself the gift of rejoicing when you’ve hit the mark?

I like a teacher who gives you something to take home to think about besides homework.

I love it when a plan comes together!

This last weekend I taught a class that I’ve taught a couple of times a year for the last six or seven years… AND I taught a totally new class – Huh??? Well of course, part of the riddle is that the group of students is always new to the class and new to me.  But this time I was also teaching to a new text and a new set of objectives and a new syllabus – all selected by Continue reading » I Love It When a Plan Comes Together!

The Power of Exhaustion

Men tire themselves in pursuit of rest.

— Laurence Sterne

It’s been six months since I started my “new” job.  One of the interesting things is how differently I view this job.  When I was “going somewhere” (and there’s some debate as to where that was), I didn’t mind getting up in the dark and driving home in the dark.  I was “going somewhere” and that meant paying the price.

Now, I am doing a job I enjoy – most of the time – and because of the one hour commute in each direction, it seems a bit of a Continue reading » The Power of Exhaustion

I need a bye so I’m going to indulge my lazy; hopefully my bye will work for you and for me.

Bye: when a participant advances to the next round without playing.


Our family celebrated Mother’s Day on Saturday afternoon/evening so that all the Moms could enjoy a real-deal-day-off on Sunday… but I forgot to make real-deal-day-off plans and, as a result of this lack of pre-planning on my part, I also didn’t prepare any posts for this week.  And now it’s Sunday, the “for real” Mother’s Day and I’m in the midst of Continue reading » Byes Make Lazy Work
