Albert Schweitzer was asked, “What is wrong with men today?” He replied, “Men simply don’t think.” That is how Earl Nightingale started one of his talks. I loved listening to his daily comments when I was young. Nightingale talked about success and goal setting. I recommend reading the talk by clicking here. The key is that…

Judgements or Accurate Thinking?

Ever find some thought keeps going through your mind and you can’t get rid of it? That is one of the biggest challenges we have. Often it has to do with our desire to be right – our desire to be better than someone else. People who can live without judgement impress me. As my…

The Easy Way

“Well, there are two ways we can do this. The hard way or the easy way. Which do you want?” You’ve probably heard that in a movie or something similar. The investigator is asking for information and implying that either way the outcome will be the same. Why not make it easy on yourself? Life…
