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 […]

I don’t mean that in a morbid sense but in a that’s-where-we’re-all-headed sense. It’s what Stephen Covey meant when he said to “begin with the end in mind.” Ultimately, our life goals […]

The Purpose of The Bucket List

The bucket list was made famous by the movie of the same name. The leading characters played by Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman created a bucket list to do the things they’d always wanted to do before they died. It’s a great concept but the magnitude of the items may overshadow the purpose. Essentially, a […]
