Do Something…Even If It’s Wrong!

Do Something…Even If It’s Wrong!
Too often, people stand frozen in life, unable or unwilling to make decisions out of fear. I'd have you believe that making decisions and "doing something" is what will allow you to live the life you truly want. Read More

The Super Hero Test

The Super Hero Test
My guess is there’s a moment in most people’s lives where they audition to become a super hero. Mine came in fourth grade, when I donned a mask and cape, climbed onto a roof, and jumped skyward, only to quickly end up on the grass below. Unfortunately my attempt didn’t end with applause and the Mayor presenting me with a key to the city. In fact, it was filled with intense leg pain and loud laughter from my friends. But, what it wasn’t filled with was regret. Read More

The main rules were, “Stay where you can hear me, and be in before the streetlights come on.” Now, before you begin to tell me children and the times have changed, I want you to ask yourself…
”When did I change?” Read More

What's Your Perspective?

What's Your Perspective?
In the movie Ratatouille, which happens to be in my top 10 list, the food critic Anton Ego sits down to eat at Gusteau’s restaurant and says to the waiter, “Do you know what I’m craving, a little perspective. That’s it. I’d like some fresh, clear, well seasoned perspective.” As a noun, one definition of perspective is, “a way of regarding situations, facts, and judging their relative importance.” Another is, “ to clearly perceive,” and in the art world it’s, “having the ability of providing dist Read More
