How Much is Enough?

How much is enough? How much property? House? Money? That question got my attention as I was running today. I've managed to expand my possessions over the years.  We live on 80 acres, with multiple buildings and vehicles.  It's beautiful and I love my life!  Still, as I look forward and ask [...]

The Law of Freedom

What appeals to me about running is that there is no good reason to do it.  I mean, jogging a few miles for fitness' sake...that makes sense.  But 26.2 miles through mountains, rocks, tree roots, mud and nasty weather?  There is absolutely no reason to do that.  Yet, I want to do it.  This is fun for [...]

Do you fantasize about pitching it all and running away to Costa Rica? Do you doubt your ability to make the business a success, to make it WORK? On [...]

It’s easier going the other way…

Greetings! You go to the local meet-and-greet of business owners. Everyone is complaining about how hard business is because of… * the economy * a family member __________ (name) * cheap customers * rotten employees Sigh. Let them run against the wind. What if you turned around and went the other way. Just because if [...]

When the tide turns…

Greetings! I just put a training schedule for a half marathon on my calendar. It helps me actually GO running instead of talk about running when I am training for an event. I know this for sure: There comes a point in the training where it gets easier. If I have been slacking off, the [...]

The Challenge…are you willing to do what it takes…

...to build a winning business? Really? I started running when I was 13 years old. It was just about that time that I stop growing tall and started growing...out. Running was a good way to keep my weight down. I liked how I felt when I finished my run. So, I stuck with it. I [...]
