How Did We Get Here?

We get this all the time: “How lucky you are! I would love to live your life!” So how did we get here? Vision. We get a vision in our heads and it consumes us! (Or me anyway…) Hope this article helps someone. I don’t remember where I got this, but I have taught it for a long, long time – from the days when I was a personal and business coach… Why vision works: The need to grow is a basic human need. When you grow, you satisfy your highest need to accomplish and contribute. The vision is simply your own view of how you want to grow. Vision works because humans want to move forward which requires that you see where you are going. Questions to help you develop your vision: Answer these three questions, starting with the ones you checked. Each question is designed to help you […]

Title to My Life (Sort Of)

Saturday someone had come over to buy one of the last things for sale – a 12 foot fence gate – when we got to talking. After I told him my last five things to sell, he wanted to see the Saab that wouldn’t run. Long story short he wanted it and went home to get more cash. Come time to swap title for cash we couldn’t find the title for the car or the truck! Lost in the moving process I guess. I have to throw in here that that very morning I had watched a video by one of my favorite people Nic Askew where I was reminded that instead of we the human race being humans looking for spiritual experiences -in fact we are more likely spiritual beings experiencing human life for a short time.

Leaving Ain’t Easy!

I have spent half a day trying to separate myself from the land. It is extremely frustrating. I bought a chromebook (Samsung) which is pretty cool as almost everything I do for paws4people foundation is online and on google, and that with my mini ipad should work as an office! Phone service will be sketchy at best (does Tmobile work offshore?) so the plan is to port the phones to google voice and use skype or google hangouts to communicate. But setting up these machines to communicate is not a walk in the park. I have spent hours just trying to get Feedburner to work on the blog. (Another google product. Hmm do I see pattern here?) All this just to test the feed! And then to bed! (Wish I could hear the sound of the water rippling against the hull as it rocks me to sleep!)

Life is Good VS The World Is In Trouble

I get asked a lot  – why if you think life is so good do you post so much negative stuff? Good question. In my admitted small little self centered world, life is awesome. I have a wonderful wife of 27 years and counting, two great boys who are now both young men,  and we live on a beautiful horse farm in a great place. On the other hand, I have watched the country I grew up in change in ways it is hard to believe. So although my life is good (anyone want to buy a beautiful horse farm so I can go sailing?) – the world around me seems to be very screwed up. It is two different things. Does that make sense? It does to me.
