I have been sitting about in my house for about a month. I am recovering from a surgery on my foot so getting around is using only 1 foot. I have learned that there are some good shows, that teach and help you learn only durning daytime. Night time TV basically stinks. I made it for this last month and it wasn't all that bad to do this. I have been working all my life since I was 16, so taking off this long is something I have never done. I am a hard worker, but now I…Continue

I came to the realization that I need to leave my current industry right before I was recently laid off. In fact, I realize that what I hate most is exactly what I've been doing for eight years. The…Continue

The Great White Shark lives the strongest life on planet Earth. Its strengths, and its deliberate use of them, are extraordinary and unmatched. For sensing, it can detect electrical currents of as little as .005 millivolts that are generated by every living creature in the water. Its extremely acute…Continue
"What I have done I have done, because it has been play. If it had been work I shouldn't have done it.
Who was it who said, 'Blessed is the man who has found his work'? Whoever it was, he had the right idea in his mind. Mark you, he says his work - not somebody else's work. The work that is really a man's own work is play and not work at all. Cursed is…Continue
I have taken the Strong Life Test. Results - Teacher and Pioneer.
Teacher falls into the profession I'm currently attending college for Social Work.

I will need to learn more about the Pioneer!

I've been busy finding out who I am for a very long time and in essence the thing that comes out is I'm nice, I'm also very smart which isn't immediately apparent because I'm usually busy listening to others.

My goal is to find a way to combine what I have learned recently about maximizing strengths with my job as a supervisor of a small crew in a government office. The…Continue

I don't really know what this means, but it at least proves that there is also work being done and captured when I am doodling.
I got a lot out of this short article: On the benefits of praise, why criticism gets overblown, and calming an angry driver from the October 4th edition of Maclean's (Canada's national news magazine- equivalent to Time in the US). Clifford Nass is a professor at Stanford and an expert on how people respond to technology. He then takes those findings and relates them to common…Continue
I'm finding that as I get older, I seem to get more and more out of touch with the new hires reporting to me. I don't want to sound like an old man ("when I was your age, we didn't expect everything handed to us on a silver…Continue

"What we can borrow from Ronald Reagan... is that great sense of optimism. He led by building on the strengths of America, not running America down."
Whenever you quote a political figure, chances are someone who reads it will shoot the messenger. But I quote Rudy Giuliani not to make any point about American politics, but to note that for him, optimism goes…Continue
