Stuff comes up and sooner or later you are deep in the fight.

Are You Busy?

I can’t do that. I’m busy. I’m too busy to see your play. I’m too busy to meet our cousins at the picnic. I’m too busy to cook dinner. We’ll pick up takeout. Busy, busy, busy. Then at the end of that busy day, we collapse on the sofa with our takeout watching a...

Be Epic

This is my last lesson from the surf. And it’s fitting given my release of the brand new EPIC Office Transformation service. You know that whole life is about the journey stuff your grandma taught you? Well she was right. My surfing wasn’t always perfect....

Surfing – wow the lessons.

Once I got up on the board, I found I kept getting a bit better at surfing but more importantly was learning more about my business and myself.

On Vacation

I took last week off from the ezine. Hope you didn’t miss me too much. We took a two-week family vacation to Europe. Bob and I were last there in 2003 for our luna de miel (honeymoon) in Italy. Doesn’t honeymoon sound so much better in Italian? We wanted...

Last Friday, March 1st, was the National Day of Unplugging. Sounds like a foreign concept for most of us, yet there are many religions who value turning off everything for the Sabbath or more frequently. The Sabbath is about a ritual day of rest. Rest is...
