    It Always Seems Like Less on Paper

    It Always Seems Like Less on Paper

    Whenever we take on a project it always seems so much bigger when it is in your head than on paper.  Putting it on paper frees your brain up to work on specific tasks instead of worrying about it all.

    The Value in Thinking About the Day to Come

    The Value in Thinking About the Day to Come

    I have recently started to see a lot of benefits to starting the day by thinking about how I want the day to play out and what I need to do to make it play out that way.  Call it the daily pre-mortem.  I think it helps.  Try it.

    What Did You Do About It?

    Next time you want to blame someone else for being ____ ask yourself - what did I do about it?  We are quick to blame others when we could have done more or done things differently.  It's often partially our own fault, more than we would like to admit. Admit it and be better.

Instant Fan!

I have just discovered your podcast, and I think it is brilliant! You are personable, knowledgeable, and succinct in you presentation! Well. Done. Sir. I am a long time practitioner of horticulture and agriculture, and have managed to produce an abundance of food on an 8000 sf lot in burbank CA. Beautiful gold Pineapples being my pride and joy. I am looking to move way north and purchase several acres in a region I am unfamiliar with. But rest assured I will be leaning on your podcast, Enthusiasm, and wealth of information. Thank you very much!
