Playin’ It Safe

I’ve been thinking about risk. Life is boring if there’s no risk involved, right? After hearing Christine Crain speak about living life and the inherent risk in living. I am inspired to live life without worry of being “safe” and...

Not Fitting In

Okay, so most of us, if not all, know what it’s like to not fit it.  We have all at one time felt that we stuck out, in the wrong way.  I must apologize that my site is not yet perfectly polished.  My logo does not quite fit.  It doesn’t quite “fit...

How Do You Like Your Ice Cream?

I know, this is perhaps a silly title to a blog post, but it tells you a lot about a person. For instance, one night when my wife and I were out on the town having some ice cream. I listened to the man in front of us place his order. Now, this guy was a big man, over...

Composure – Lesson # 2

Okay, so in my first post on composure I spoke about the idea that every person has a breaking point at which they no longer present a calm, masked presentation.  Now I revisit this thought/idea because I continue to experience this in my life.  Presenting a...

In the Weeds – Lesson # 1

In the restaurant biz there is a phrase they call “in the weeds”.  I have worked in fast food, but have never waited tables.  So let me be the first to say that I have never personally experienced this in its place of origin. (pause)  When waitstaff get...
