Groundhog Day, February 2nd, is a popular and fun tradition in the United States.

"You can't build a reputation on what you are going to do."  ~Henry Ford
Here we are at the end of January.  Isn't it amazing how fast this month came to a close?  It seems, or is it feels, like it   just started and now it is finished, done, completed, over.
I got all dressed up at the end of 2010 in my finest.  I had all of my plans and goals setup and was enthusiastic about getting started.  How about you?
Then things happened.  All that snow and I couldn't get out of the house and the … (10 comments)

A Time To Reflect,
This afternoon I was going through my emails when one caught my eye.  Well at least the subject did and it cause me do a little reflecting on what I would call the good ole days. 
The days of being able to go out and play from sun up to dinner time, and we always knew when that was or else.   Those were the days when you would walk to school 2+ miles in the snow uphill both ways. You wouldn't be concerned about people bothering you or something bad happening.
School days, for me, were … (17 comments)

Two Heads Are Better Than One!!
Guys have a bad rap......You know, the one that the ladies say that guys NEVER ask for help or directions to the restaurant,etc..  Well I am guilty just ask my wife.  I can read directions and I can put ‘A' into ‘B' or I can insert the ‘cd' into the computer and then click ‘next'.  I just have one problem.  When I am through clicking the ‘next' button and click the ‘finish' button I expect what I am installing to work like the box says it will.  You know, like when you put an address … (12 comments)

Saying goodbye for three years,
Yesterday January 25, 2011 my son and his family were deployed to Germany for three years.  Being in the military things like this happen, sometimes more often than parents like.  Well it could be worse, some might say, he could be going to Iraq.  He's been there.  He could have gone to Afghanistan.  Yes he could have.  He has also been in Saudi Arabia during the first gulf war.   So he is familiar with heading to places outside of the country.
Maybe I have been spoiled having him within two hours away for the last five … (15 comments)

Things can get tough and at times they will,
"When everything seems to be going against you,
remember that the airplane takes off against the wind, not with it."
~ Henry Ford
 
There are times in our daily business that things seem to be coming at us faster than we can get out of the way or tackle them.  The same holds true in our personal lives, we no sooner take one step forward then we find ourselves taking two steps backwards.  Ever have one of those days?
So how do we handle these opportunities?  How do we start moving … (9 comments)

Kids are always thinking,
When our kids were younger, much younger, we would never know what would come out of their mouth when we ask them a question.  Now with them in their 30's & 40's it still isn't much different.  When they were younger this little story reminded me of my middle child.  Now that they are older it sounds more like my youngest.
An exasperated mother, whose son was always getting into mischief, finally asked him, "How do you expect to get into Heaven?"  the boy thought it over and finally said, "Well, I'll run in and out and … (9 comments)

Are you ready for some Football?
This is probably just one of many posts today talking about playoff football.  I am sure all of them will have something to say and the writers probably have a lot more knowledge than I.  But that is alright I at least know the four teams that are playing today and the times they will be playing.  And I will be in front of the one eyed monster watching!!
These four teams are the cream of the crop; they have risen to the top of their divisions and are playing for the AFC and NFC … (8 comments)

Have you lost your enthusiasm for the job?
"Enthusiasm glows, radiates, permeates and immediately captures everyone's interest."  ~Paul J. Meyer
I have a friend that, in my opinion after several talks, has lost his enthusiasm for the job.  A past Broker/Owner that just a few short years ago was full of excitement and love for the real estate industry.  You could see and feel that enthusiasm every day.  As Paul Meyer says he would capture everyone's interest with his enthusiasm and the energy that came from his excitement.
If you have ever watched someone lose their excitement or enthusiasm about their … (18 comments)
