Distractions: How to Get Past Them

Distractions are everywhere. Lately, after binge watching a television show and suffering with a headache for two days, I realized I am way overstimulated.

Motivation: Don’t work so hard at the wrong things.

Motivation: What’s Yours? What works? A comment about motivation being “all that matters” really got me going this week. It didn’t motivate me. It irritated me. Worse, it was in the first line of a self-help book.

Choices: the Good, the Bad and the Ugly

Choices Must be Based on Good Data In my continuing quest to make better choices (a la Do the Thing) I need data. You probably need it, too. Let’s talk about some things you need to know to make those improved choices. I got quite a blow last week. The tax bill came due and, after too long at the accountant’s, the hammer fell.

Is it time for your next vacation? What if you can’t afford a vacation. Pop quiz, hotshot! What do you do? What do you do? (I love me a very dated reference from the movie Speed.
