What’s Nagging You?

No one likes nagging and we get pretty tired of naggers as well.   As a tool in a relational, social, connection based society, nagging has a limited ROI (return on investment) with diminishing returns which, when things dip into the negative, have dire consequences.  All of which means that nagging works once in a great…

I don’t wanna

You know that saying “You always find the thing you’re looking for in the last place you look”?  Well it’s true…snarky, but true.  In that same vein, many of us struggle on and on in our lives, looking here-there-everywhere for an answer to why things are the way they are and what they can do…

Am I Too Late?

Each moment of our lives is unique.   Which makes them all the same, doesn’t it.  LOL……ahem…sorry…   The circumstances of each moment of our lives is made up of decisions and choices, experiences and circumstances.

Who Said That?

Every notice that some people are like those dolls with the recordings in them?  You know, the one with the button in the back that you push and they say things?  Sometimes funny things, sometimes cute things, sometimes sarcastic things…  My favorite has always been the Silent Bob action figure.  It was (is?) about 12″…

Knowing What You Know

How do you know when you’ve found yourself?  That’s the snide question that people ask those who are “trying to find themselves.”  It’s a valid question, snide as it is.  How do you know?  Let’s put it another way.  How much seeking do you need to do until you decide to act on what you’ve…

Motivational Stories

When we think of motivational stories or speakers we think of the things that inspire us.  The memes and quotes and anecdotes which get us fired up or at least make us feel better about our day.  And for most people these are like sparkling stars in the night sky.  They are the exceptions to…

Missed Connections

If we’re doing it right our lives are a tapestry of interconnections.  “Everything’s connected” and alla that.  Being connected means that our actions affect not only us but others in big and small and every size in between ways and not everyone is going to like the effects of our actions. The easiest way to…
