TRUE STORY — He Saved the Lives of 669 Children!

If you were alive in 1969 when Neil Armstrong captured this image of Buzz Aldrin, you probably remember this event, too (if you were at least 5-6 years old!). Prior to July 20, 1969 the feat seemed impossible. Still, human ingenuity and determination proved several times that President Kennedy's goal of putting a man on the moon and returning him safely was indeed possible. We've…

SHARE this post if you like it! “Don’t underestimate the value of Doing Nothing, of just going along, listening to all the things you can’t hear, and not bothering.” -- Winnie the Pooh First, I hope this shocked baby photo made you smile and forget about "productivity" for a moment. Most likely, you are either guilty or you feel guilty (or both), and the guilt is disruptive in your life, impacting your relationships with family and friends and driving you crazy!

Don’t Miss YOUR Opportunity of a Lifetime!

Share this post here if you like it! “Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans.” -- Allen Saunders (often attributed to John Lennon) How many times have you passed on a "once in a lifetime opportunity"?  If you didn't jump at that once in a lifetime opportunity, it wasn't the end of the world, was it? "Opportunity" is not scarce.  I've seen multiples of "one of a kind"; more and better offers than the "the best offer ever", and grand re-openings after "final going out of business" sales.  There's a large discount furniture store in…

"When one door closes another door opens, but we so often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door, that we do not see the ones which open for us." --- Alexander Graham Bell   We've all heard the "door opens" part of Alexander Graham Bell's famous quote, but have you heard the part about NOT seeing the new doors…

It’s Just a Flesh Wound…Attitude Is Everything!

"The problem is not the problem. The problem is your attitude about the problem. Do you understand?" -- Captain Jack Sparrow << Share this post here if you like it! << The optimist says: "The glass is half-full." The pessimist says: "The glass is half-empty". .............  And while they are arguing, the pragmatist takes the glass and drinks it! Alright, I know that there's nothing new here.  The answer to the question about the glass being half full or half empty is irrelevant. The facts are: 1.    You have made an observation; 2.    You have processed the information based upon…
