Comparing you to me

Do we learn to compare ourselves to others, or is it an in-born trait?  Perhaps you were told “I wish you were more like your sister”, or “look at Johnny, he managed to get his homework in on time.” I guess that might lead me to believe somewhere along the line we were trained to identify our …

It’s Impossible

What is impossible?  In my world nothing is impossible, it just has perhaps not yet come about.  It was once common knowledge that it was impossible for a man to fly.  Not that long ago the idea I could sit here in my office and type a message which could be read all over the world …

Let’s rehearse your troubles

OK, let’s begin the rehearsal.  Let’s say you have planned a flight  across the country. What if the plane is not on schedule?  What if you are late, will the rental car be there?  What if it is snowing when you get there.  What if your bags get lost, what are you going to do?  What if there is turbulence in flight, will …

What If

These two words, What If, can be our greatest supporters, or our most sadistic jailers.  If the term What If is the beginning of a train of thought which will create a new vision, open us to possibility, move us forward from a place where we are stuck, well then, you have a friend in What …

Is it Good or is it Bad?

I really enjoy the lower gas prices I pay today, lower prices are good right?  But wait, my son does repairs on drilling rigs in North Dakota.  Many of those rigs are shutting down because oil prices are falling too low. This means his income is going down.  Bad right? But those who do have jobs can …

I want it MY way

Hey, it worked for Frank Sinatra, didn’t it?  Seriously though, I really do want it my way; I want the computer to work the way I want it to work, I want my driving to be my way, I want my relationships to work the way I want them to, and so on and so …
