What do you learn from others?

In other words, where do you get your stories?

Stories that are worth telling others.

Meaningful encounters are so much more than small talk.

Talk. Ask questions. Real questions. Not “how’s it going?” with no real intent to find out.

Go beyond the norm. You might be the only person that actually talks to that cashier, or that person at the store, or that person walking down the sidewalk.

Learn something interesting about them.

How do you treat the people you’re allowed to mistreat? Sure, you can say what you want to most people and it won’t affect you negatively, but it also won’t affect you positively.

You might end up as someone’s story today. Make the story a good one.

The Agony of da Feet!

The Agony of da Feet!

Do you have back pain? A lot of people do. Mine wasn’t as bad 3 weeks ago as it is today. I’ve done a LOT of walking (probably 4 to 5 miles a day) as I’m in the process of building my legs back up after a couple of weeks of being on the road and driving a lot. The...

You can’t win ’em all

You can’t win ’em all

Playing the hand you’re dealt doesn’t mean you’ll win. Sometimes you win. Sometimes you lose. Sometimes you have a really good hand and get beat by someone with a better hand. Sometimes you win with a hand you shouldn’t have. It all depends on how you play what you’re...

It’s all about perspective

It’s all about perspective

Well, which is it? 1/2 full or 1/2 empty? The answer is all about perspective. Recently, I poured a 1/2 of glass of orange juice for my youngest daughter and she completely threw a fit. She was in no frame of mind to be short-changed as her heart wanted a full glass!...
