Our 2019 Urban Garden

Early this year when I was recovering from back to back heart procedures to address some major blockages that had snuck up on me over the past few years I made up my mind that I was going to plan and execute on a garden this spring / summer. Honestly, it's something I've always enjoyed but just haven't had the energy the past few years to even … [Read more...]

Once Bitten, Twice Shy

As I'm sure most of you that follow me on instagram, twitter, or facebook are already aware. This past weeked I got bit by a snake. If you ask my son, he's quick to tell you that it was a "dangerous brown cobra" and that he's planning on dealing w/ him later (true story, out of the blue he said that). As far as snakes go, I was pretty lucky … [Read more...]

New Year, Better Outcomes!

I don't know about you, but I'm excited to put 2018 behind me and get a fresh start on 2019. I was driving through Arkansas and Mississippi this week and saw several unharvested fields of cotton and soybeans. I've also seen more ruts this season than past years, putting a lot of people behind the eight ball in preparation for 2019 planting. My … [Read more...]

Kindergarten, here we come!

I’m sitting here eating lunch and thinking about how quickly this day has snuck up on us, we meet his kindergarten teacher tonight and he begins his educational journey. I hope he takes it seriously and acquires an appetite for learning. He has a blank slate right now, it won’t be much longer —and that’s exciting as a parent to watch. … [Read more...]

Manageable Email Volume w/ Unroll.me

There's an old saying that you can't teach an old dog new tricks, well that's probably true in some regards --but I haven't quite hit that point in my life yet where I can't still improve upon or become more efficient in things that I do daily. Well, chalk this up to being more efficient. I've had friends tell me about unroll.me over the years but … [Read more...]

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. The "Eisenhower Method" stems from a quote attributed to Dwight D. Eisenhower: "I have … [Read more...]
