The Gap Between Stimulus and Response is About a Foot!

Viktor Frankyl’s quote states: “Between stimulus and response there is a space.  In that space is our power to choose our response.  In our response lies our growth and our freedom.” In that gap, which is usually tiny, there is enough room for one’s foot as well!  Has that ever happened to you?  You’ve heard something…

Strategies for Working from Home – Part 1

Wow!  What the hell just happened?  There we were and now here we all are – like this!  There have been plenty of times over the last 12 years of self-employment that I’ve said “I wish the world would stop and allow me to catch up..”, however I never thought it would happen!  Heck!!  Thank you universe…

Do you ‘know’ or do you ‘do’?

When I talk to people about how we relate to one another through talking and listening, I often see their eyes glaze over.  I’ve yet to figure out what the ‘glaze-over’ is about though … whether they’ve heard it before?  They know it already?  They think it’s not important?  Or if they’re okay and everyone…

Tick Tock Tick Tock

How come some people achieve lots and others don’t?  How come some people can work ‘on’ their biz as well as ‘in’ their biz and get everything done?   How come we talk about ‘time management’ and really, there’s no way to manage it?  The term ‘time management’ isn’t one of my faves, as I don’t…

You can’t always get what you want … Really?

Is that true?  If we listen to the rest of that chorus line that Mick and the Rolling Stones sing it goes like this:  “…you can’t always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you might find, you get what you need …”   I have no idea what was in the minds of these…
