Tasks & Chores Remind Us of How Life Never Stops

Today, I confess that I don’t feel well. I slept a lot during the day. Over the past three days, I fulfilled an active, fast-paced schedule. This led me to be “rundown”. Interestingly, no matter how I felt, the garbage needed to be placed by the street for tomorrow’s pickup, and dishes needed to be washed. Life never stops, no matter what stories we tell ourselves or how...

The Art of Clear Choices: Embracing Binary Decisions

A binary decision is one where there can be only two choices. The definition of binary is “relating to, composed of, or involving two things”. Early computer machine languages worked off of a system of the numbers 0 and 1 (another binary system). Binary decisions present us with two options that are opposite each other. They present themselves as “you can do this or you can do...

Explaining Others’ Behavior

I find it amazing how people seem to easily explain other people’s behavior. They did it because of this or that. He or she knew what they were doing or wanted to do it. They even jump to say that they know what is coming next. Connecting the dots (whether they are true or not) makes our stories more credible. Never considering whether our explanations are “close” to being...

Necessary But Not Sufficient

Nuance is defined in a web search as: “A subtle or slight degree of difference, as in meaning, feeling, or tone; a gradation”. We survive in our daily lives by pattern-matching to respond to the world around us quickly and leaving us little time or practice in cultivating the skill of seeking nuance in important and impactful decisions. “Necessary but not sufficient” is an...

Testing the Value of Ideas: Why Rushing to Applause Can Be a Mistake

We attach importance to our ideas without realizing that without any tests, we don’t know if they have any value. They always sound good. Worthy of applause from others. Ideas need work and implementation before you can objectively determine their value. Life excels at objectivity. It demands tests and time to determine the value of any work we do, born of an idea. It never picks sides nor...

What Problem Are You Trying To Solve?

Tonight I had an interesting experience. Let me preface my story by saying that I am not very handy although I am not afraid to try to fix things when needed. My problem started as “Our shower handle was loose”. I had tightened it once before but it came loose just a few months later. It took me about 45 minutes to loosen the handle so that I could remove it. The issue was I could not...

The Wake-Up Call of Busyness: Finding Balance in a Hectic World

No time for our breath. Busy from morning until night. It makes it easy for us to forget. Things we need to do that are in plain sight. . To be caught in this trap Reminds us not to stay We need to step back To once again see the light of day. . Our work becomes half-done With little energy left to give. To be caught in this trap Turning our minds into a sieve. . It’s good when this happens...

Finding Clarity Amidst the Chaos: A Path to Impactful Productivity

In today’s fast-paced world, we regularly seek new apps and tools promising to enhance our productivity and make life easier. It’s easy to fall into the trap of downloading app after app, believing they hold the secret to unlocking our true potential. I was guilty of this mindset, thinking that the more apps I had, the more productive I would become. However, reality taught me a...
