Your iPad Makes You a Loser

The NCAA basketball tournament means millions of eye balls watching TV and, hence, new TV commercials from major brands. If I ran a company, I wouldn’t even bother with a ad in the Super Bowl that gets aired once, critiqued like crazy, and forgotten.… Continue Reading “Your iPad Makes You a Loser”


I’m not breaking any news, here, but my sister shared this video with me and I can’t stop thinking about it and, actually, can’t stop thinking about how it applies to my 13, 12, and 10 year old? Hell …how does it apply to… Continue Reading “Millennials”

To Agree or Disagree, Which Do I Notice?

I wonder if I notice quotes because they fit in with my thoughts at a certain time, or do I notice quotes because they conflict with my current state of mind? This is a bad example, but if I’m thinking, “I’m going to exercise… Continue Reading “To Agree or Disagree, Which Do I Notice?”

The World Revolves Around Me?

No. The world doesn’t revolve around me. Did you see the question mark in the blog title? Sometimes, however, I feel like the choices I make are completely egomaniacal and force the people I love (mainly my wife) to bow to my selfish demands.… Continue Reading “The World Revolves Around Me?”

A Good Ballad Can Still Be a Hit

Sometimes I wonder if we’ll never have crooners and ballads as part of the Billboard Top-40. I remember the ’80s (and early ’90s) when Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Phil Collins, Michael Bolton, Celine Dion, and Boyz II Men clogged up the Top-40 and Top-10… Continue Reading “A Good Ballad Can Still Be a Hit”

Mind Shift, Sleep Shift

Anyone have any thoughts on shifting one’s entire hours-of-operation? I ask because I seem incapable of sleeping past, oh, 4 or 4:30 a.m. Waking up at 4:30 a.m. isn’t the end of the world, but it means I have to head to bed at… Continue Reading “Mind Shift, Sleep Shift”

Time for New Shoes

If you know me, I’m an Adidas man. Always have been. Since I was in my late teens, all my running and athletic shoes have been Adidas, except for a pair of minimal Nike running shoe in the mid-2000s that mimicked barefoot running, and… Continue Reading “Time for New Shoes”

Time to Fix This Year

My Life: Q1 came and went and it’s time to look back, take stock, and implement action items for Q2 and Q3. Like a business, I’m going to review my goals and objectives and re-calibrate. The bad. Sleeping – I’m getting about 6 restless… Continue Reading “Time to Fix This Year”


At a staff meeting last week, the entire group was prompted to share their goals for 2015. Mine was lame – to write down a minimum of 4 specific goals each week and do those things. To make it public, as in, detail them… Continue Reading “Balance”

Things I Wonder: Could This Blog be Better?

Could this blog be better? Yes, of course. But how? As a guy who’s been blogging for nearly a decade (I’m rounding up), you’d think I’d have it all figured out, by now. I don’t. I feel like I should just go back to… Continue Reading “Things I Wonder: Could This Blog be Better?”
