Nothing Changes Until YOU Do

I am writing this on my way to China for a week.  Twelve hour flights, great for getting some work done.  For me, not so much.  They feed you 3 times, you watch two or 3 movies and then you sleep.  But I am giving this a shot. I spent last week in Phoenix visiting…

You Only Get One… Need Reminding? I Don’t!

One Life One life.  That’s all you get.  No dress rehearsals.  No do-overs. No second chances (at least for most of you without a near death experience).
