Video: The Strangest Secret – Earl Nightingale

My team and I have been doing some professional development training recently and we've had some really cool curriculum. I wouldn't say that I've learned anything that I haven't heard before, but I think I'm able to absorb a lot of the information better now for some reason. This video is an archive of an old recording by Earl Nightingale from the … [Read more...]

Eisenhower’s Quadrant for Time Management…

I've actually seen this a handful of times in the past while attending seminars, training, etc., but I'm not sure that it's ever resonated w/ me as well as it did this past month when our company started doing some time management training through a 3rd party.

Successful -vs- Unsuccessful People

I recently ran across this graphic and thought it presented some valid points, some of you may have already seen it since I shared it on my Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter accounts. As I've mentioned before, the reason I blog these days isn't so much for me to exchange ideas w/ others as it is for me to leave thoughts for my son to ponder when he's … [Read more...]

Remembering Lance Russell

Note: If you were a fan of Memphis Wrestling I highly recommend my friend, Mark James, Books!

Man Tries to Steal a Purse… #hitpeoplewithsticks

Okay, so I've had a lot of people ask me where I came up with the idea for the #hitpeoplewithsticks hashtag. While I'm not 100% sure, if I had to bet it would probably date back a few years when this video of some goober trying to steal a lady's purse on a bus went viral. It's still funny to watch this video from time to time, every now and then … [Read more...]

Update on Donna’s Kidney Transplant…

The other day I made mention of Donna's "upcoming kidney transplant" on Facebook and my inbox and phone have been getting blown up --so I wanted to clarify a few things.
