Kindergarten compassion or PhD compassion

Share this:

Kindergarten compassion or PhD compassion  It is relatively easy to have compassion when a natural disaster strikes or when a tragedy hits people that we don’t know. And hey, compassion is a great response to those sorts of things. And, that’s the kindergarten level of compassion. It is easy. But what about those situations where […]

Effort to Encourage

Share this:

Effort to Encourage  I had a discussion with some friends this morning about how often people are starving for a word of encouragement. This made me think of my favorite proverb: An encouraging word is like a honeycomb. It strengthens the body and sweetens the soul. It also made me think about – how willing […]

The Discipline Group

Share this:

The Discipline Group As long as words like: discipline, structure, routine, tracking, rules, time-blocking, accountability, etc. give you the heebie jeebies. You will be forced to underperform because you will be avoiding the things that will help you to do better. Greatness stands on the shoulders of those words. So then, the thing to do […]

Just Get Started

Share this:

Just Get Started Just do something – no matter how small. Just get started.
