Action > Intention

Ever notice that words semi related to each other are vastly different? For instance, the dictionary tells us that “should” is the past tense of “shall”- how is that possible? To me, there are huge differences between these two words. The word “should” expresses...

Tech Rage

Technology has had some incredible advances in the last century… decade… year…month…and even day. It makes us more efficient and more connected.  We can do things with cell phones today that we could not do a few years ago, or even a few weeks ago.  Every time a new...

Higher goals = Higher results

Goal setting is a powerful exercise and its effects are tremendous. When setting goals, how high do you aim? When you set goals that are easy to achieve, not only are you not giving it your all, but you’re ultimately cheating yourself. I was recently reading an...

The Answer is Simple

Ever call tech support for an issue and have the representative start asking you dumb question like:  “is it turned on?”Or, “is it plugged in?”. There is a reason for these questions. They are trying to eliminate the simple issues.  To many of us it may seem like tech...
