Your Parents Were Wrong

They were wrong about a LOT.

A young girl walks out of her bedroom down the hall and smells a lovely aroma seeping from the kitchen. She decides to investigate and walks in to the kitchen to see the familiar sight of her mother cooking intently.

She closes the lid on the stove and prepares the large ham to go in the oven. Before she places the ham in the oven, she cuts the ends off of the ham and ...

Guessing One's Future like a Fortune Teller

It was at the crack of 10 O’ clock one morning this week when I found myself catching a plane to go speak across the country. I’ve always preferred flying over driving because, while on the plane, it allows me to concentrate on whatever it is that I wish to concentrate on, be it email, reading a book, typing a blog, writing in my journal, writing notes, reviewing documents, organizing my fast paced life, listening to a podcast, prioritizing tasks, communicating with my assistant or whatever else...
