The Mid-Life Question

The Mid-Life Question

I’ve never really had a mid-life crisis. It seems somewhat ridiculous to think that one could somehow reverse the effects of life by veering dramatically off course, as some do. Life is like a moving sidewalk and it’s hard to fight its forward motion. Even if we try to pretend we’re staying in place or […]

Happy New Year…uh…Day

It’s that time of year again. Even if you haven’t put away the decorations, I suspect you have spent the past few weeks putting away enough food and drink for the both of us. And I’m right there with you. Now, it’s time to get back to work, back to school, and back to the […]

Why Are We Here…or Anywhere?

When I was a kid, I remember riding in the car with my dad when we came upon an accident. A pickup truck had stalled on the railroad tracks as a train was approaching. Luckily the driver got out before the train hit the truck. Unfortunately, however, a dog had been chasing the truck and […]

The Power of Focus, Part Deux

In the last article, I spoke about my lack of focus. Many of you said that you could identify with my distractedness. And while the intent of that article was to describe a common issue in a funny way, there wasn’t much in the way of helpful tips. Sorry about that—I got distracted. As I’ve […]

The Power of Focus

I admit that I am not always laser focused. The one situation where I am focused is when I’m speaking in front of a large group of people. Give me an audience of 4,000 and my mind is sharp, my focus is clear, and my humor is hah-larious. But put me in a room by […]

Connections: The Key to the Holidays and Beyond

After replacing 150 burned-out bulbs on my pre-lit artificial Christmas tree, I was ready to toss the entire Faux Frasier Fir out the window and let it fend for itself among the real trees. But I persevered and ordered 150 more bulbs to complete the bulb management effort I had neglected over the past five […]
