A few years ago, I started doing some serious evaluating of my life and how well I was providing for my family. I started reading anything I could get my hands on in regards to finances. I made a choice to start living my life a little more intentionally. I wanted to stop feeding Today Me (the dude that keeps me from planning for the future). The result: I can honestly say that, for the first time in my life, I have 5 and 10 year plan for myself and my family. I think this is what determines which Me wins. This is also probably true for all of us. Continue reading “Plan For Your Future”
My pastor made a comment recently about how many individuals make the same New Year’s resolutions year after year after year. You might initially think to yourself, “Wow, that person is goal-oriented. Way to go, person.” However, there is a problem here. If the goal is the same every year, that means they’re not actually reaching the goal. Continue reading “How To Keep Your Resolution”
I woke up at 5:45 this morning with two tasks to complete today. One of them will put the finishing touches on my current career while the other one potentially opens the door for my next one. Continue reading “Life is Strange…”
Nobody likes Mondays. I think that is pretty much established across the board. After a weekend of rest, it seems like everything that can go wrong will go wrong on a Monday. The problems that a long Monday present are so cliche at this point that we actually have t-shirts now that chronicle their pain. Continue reading “Handling Hard Days”
Elisa and I have been watching old episodes of Friends lately and it got me to thinking. As ridiculous as those people were (and it was pretty bad), they always had each other’s backs. Through thick and thin, they were there for each other. This show was so popular. It is very rare for a tv show to last ten years. Continue reading “Friends”
I have always thought that any man’s appearance is instantly improved when they are in a suit. I don’t think this is debatable, really. You will hear men who will comment about how they never get in a suit and that it makes them look funny. I just don’t buy it. There is something very distinguished about a man in a suit that you simply do not get from a pair of cargo shorts and a t-shirt (which happens to be my outfit of choice).
A person should never stop learning. Our education should be a lifelong adventure. Sure, I get it. You finish up 12 years of lower education and push yourself through 4 to 8 years of college. You’re ready to quit learning. You feel like you have more information packed into your head than you might ever possibly be able to use. At this point, you are ready to just sit back and attempt to put what you have already learned to use. Continue reading “Learn Some New Skills”
It can often be difficult to establish what parts of your life or parts of you that should carry over from one part of your life to another. We all pick up habits and preferences along the way. However, what works in your twenties might not work in your thirties and could be holding you back from being successful as you move into your forties. Continue reading “Moving On”
