Drama Drama Drama.

My bride and I love going to the movies. These past couple of months we’ve been to watch a few. Thinking about the movies we’ve seen, there seems to be a common thread with the way the sequence of a movie goes, whether it be drama, romantic comedies, or an action film: most movies are […]

Rent is Due.

I’ve heard it said, “Success is never owned; it is only rented – and the rent is due every day.”  People who are successful embrace the idea that the rent is due every day. I don’t think you ever arrive at a place called “success” and that’s it. Ironically, “successful” people are always re-adjusting their […]

Free vs Cost.

I am a big dreamer. I’ve always been and I’ll always be. I dream big so that if I don’t achieve my dreams, I’ll at least be much further ahead than I would be if I didn’t dream at all. There’s nothing wrong with dreaming, however, dreams are free but the journey costs. People look […]

Secret Weapon.

I love what former Prime Minister of Israel, Golda Meir (1898 – 1978), once said, “Our secret weapon is NO ALTERNATIVE“. I see too many people give up on dreams. I see too many people give up on projects, careers, and goals way too prematurely. Sometimes we give up just before we get our breakthrough. […]
