Thinking Is Encouraged, Believing Is Optional

Perhaps it’s ego driven or perhaps a sense of purpose, but after much time scrolling the threads of others on Facebook and Twitter – and participating to a degree – I have a need to express my views in a forum of my choosing.  And while other forums provide opportunity to discuss issues, they also cater to a hit-and-run mentality.  Post a photo of morning breakfast, provide an update on traffic, and lob a “grenade” of discourse – whether or not you understand the subject matter.

As I…

Problem With The Two-Party System? It's The Voters (Part 1)

I was in elementary school when my father started my preparation for life as a registered voter.  He was watching the 1968 republican convention and took time to explain the concept of ballots, roll calls, delegates and candidates.  I can’t say I remember much but I do have recollection of a roll call as Richard Nixon battled Nelson Rockefeller, Ronald Reagan and George Romney (the guy born in Mexico) for the nomination.  History tells us others were on the ballot but those four are…

What Your Vehicle Says About You

A bit back I contacted the alumni association at the University of Florida.  Why Florida?  For the same purpose, I could have contacted Miami or South Florida.  I also could have contacted Florida State or Central Florida.  But as the Gators are riding a hot streak - March Madness and all - they seemed suitable.  Perhaps it’s a Maslow Hierarchy or Manifest Destiny thing.  Go forth and conquer ... or at least be entertained.

So I called and lodged a complaint.  Not…

Where are the Voters? Where is the Community Discussion?

Jurisdictions long have abandoned the plying of voter registration rolls for potential jurors.  More than likely, if you receive a jury notice, your name has been pulled from the rolls of drivers licenses - the identification card you proudly flashed when you were 21 years old, conveniently misplaced when you were 45 and, if you happened to have aged well, once again proudly flashed when you were 65.

And why would jurisdictions change their approach?  Because many…

Can You Reconcile Your Beliefs With Your Life?

Our tendency to embrace views seems as common as breathing.  And while columnists of the print media and talking heads of television cry of the volatility of today’s political       environment, the nation’s newspapers of 1800 reveals times haven’t changed though the methods of addressing issues continue to evolve.

I’m most entertained, or perhaps frustrated, by those whose beliefs cannot be reconciled with their lives.  I speak of those who take a stance on an…

Self Help

Self Help is something most people will look for at different points in their lives.

There are so many ways for you to be able to help yourself in any part of your life.  One of the ways that I would like to mention is being aware of your energy and your emotions.

Most people are not aware of their energy and how it affects their communication.

Have you every walked into a room and immediately thought you do not like someone even though you have not met them or…

Anger & Stress during the Holidays

Anger and stress are two of the main emotions people express through the Holiday period.

Why do you think this is so?

Families get together and most families have some sort of dysfunction.   Some of the family members do not want to be there but will because the 'should', this leads to stress, resentment, anger and general unhappiness.

Children expect to receive the best,…

Perception is Reality

Perception is reality.

My ex boss used to say this to me all the time. He said no matter what your intentions are if others perception of you or your business is the opposite then that is reality.

What do others perceive of you or your business, are you projecting what you think you are projecting.
