We buy many things by the pound. Meat, Cheese, Dog food . . . or by the volume . . . Beer, Milk, Gravel . . . Pricing houses is more art than science. Sure, many REALTORS will initially do Price/Square foot analysis when working with a home Seller to determine a “great” listing price, but that on...

I know 2017 isn’t over yet. We have 60 days left to finish strong AND to begin the creation of a WAY better 2018. 60 days is just the right amount of time to debrief our progress and performance throughout 2017. It’s time to get clear on where we were January 1, 2017 and where we are now, and how...

Tomorrow is HALLOWEEN! That means that we have 2 months to “finish” 2017. For some folks, finishing a year is all about the passage of time. The ball drops, and we enter the new year with a “good riddance” nod to the outgoing year. January 2, it’s “back to work” at more of the same as the year be...

Saturday, I spent the entire day manicuring Owen Hollow. At the end of the day – with great satisfaction – I looked at the results of my hard work. Before I started working that morning, this entire property was covered with a blanket of fallen leaves and tree limbs. I gathered all of the “debris...

Do you show up when you say you will? If you don’t, what do you say to the person whose time you wasted? When you know that you’re not going to show up on time (or at all), do you call the person or people you are to meet and tell the truth or do you blame it on someone else or on “circumstances ...

When an ice storm hits Nashville, everyone in town understands the importance of traction. Without it, you’re gonna slip and land on your butt (or worse) . . . Your car will not change directions when you turn the steering wheel (If it moves at all), and very little productivity happens because l...

How difficult can this be? Seriously! Do we need to add complexity? Is it a human requirement? If it’s not complicated, is it less worthy? Ah yes . . . I see now . . . Really intelligent people conflagrate simple things so as to be able to swoop in and earn their “HERO” badges by helping others m...

Turn away from the mayhem and put all that energy to good use. Will I end up under Federal investigation because of my wish for Twitter to die? I hope not because despite what some people might think, twitter is NOT a human being. Twitter IS a force to be reckoned with. After all, it is being att...

Recommended Dietary Allowances (RDA) aren’t just for food consumption. How much good can you day today? How many opportunities to do good each day do you suppose the average person passes without pausing their frenetic lives long enough to lend a hand? A better question: How many do YOU pass up?...

Seth Godin says: “We call a brand or a person authentic when they’re consistent” His blog post inspired me to write just a more about this not because I think he didn’t say enough but because I’d like to punctuate a few things that he said without saying Oh!

Just when you think you’ve “got it” some upstart innovator moves your cheese. How frustrating is it when you FINALLY settle into comfort with all of your technology (Cell Phone?), and the provider sends an operating system update that changes EVERYTHING?
