Is it “THE” economy or “YOUR” economy?
One of the biggest excuses for lack of success is this thing called the “economy.” Turn on the news and they talk about the financial markets and whether or not the economy is booming or not. Most people don’t even know what this thing is. They just know that it’s big, and the television tells…Read More
There Is No “Life Participation” Trophy
But I got a trophy when I was younger…? When I was a kid, one year I got a trophy for playing soccer. Our team sucked. We were last in our division, and I think we won maybe two games out of 10 or 12. At the end of the season, we all got a…Read More

Then, I considered the source of the question as someone who does not pay close attention to their…Read More
Why I Shave My Head
I feel the need to make it public about why I shave my head. A lot of uninformed people stay (un)informed by “popular” social media and the television. There is a lot of irresponsible, divisive “journalism,” and a lot of hate in both places right now. I get dirty looks occasionally (and not-so-occasionally) when I…Read More
Whose Life Are You Living Anyway?
Have you ever started a project, business, or any undertaking and then caved to the criticism from others? Did you ever wonder why you caved instead of living your life the way you wanted?

My Year-End Review of 2013
Now that the Year is Finished, It’s Time to Review My 2013 I think it’s kind of strange to review the past year before January 1, 2014 because the year isn’t over yet. Before I can review my year of miscues and triumphs, I feel the need to finish out the year first. I guess…Read More
