Episode 127 - As Cyclists, With Rights Come Responsibilities
Tragic story today about a pedestrian killed on the Macomb Orchard Trail after he was hit by a cyclist. As a cyclist for many years, including on that trail, I have seen many examples of high risk behavior by cyclists, and need to admit to taking those risks myself. The price of harming another person is never worth it. Cyclists are the first to complain when drivers don't respect our rights on the road, yet we often justify ignoring the rules of the road ourselves.
Episode 126 - Planning Meals Prevents Wasting Money (And Food)
By structuring meals, you can save a lot of money because you won't have a pantry or refrigerator full of food you may or may not eat. It also helps prevent food being wasted because it goes bad, and gives you the freshest food to eat instead of something that has been sitting around losing flavor.

Episode 124 - Take Some Time To Socialize

Episode 123 - How Badly Do You Want That Outcome?
If you want something to be different in your life, get very clear on what you want the outcome to look like. Then decide how badly you want that outcome. Because if you really want it, you'll create and follow the fool-proof steps necessary for insuring the outcome. If that seems too much or too restrictive to you, be ok that it isn't something that you really want. Or wake up to the realization that unless you change your actions, your outcome will stay the same.
