A Picture Says 1000 Words: 4 Simple Lessons from 1 Cat and 20 Dogs

The first time I saw this picture I couldn’t stop looking at it. I was getting so much visual feedback that I thought my head was going to explode. Here are a few life lessons that stood out to me.

I’m no Fat Bastard: Are personal goals the cure for the economy?

What if we inspired more people to want more out of life during a recession? Better relationships, better education, better family time, or a better lifestyle. How valuable are those dream?

Allow Your Dreams to Develop

I can recall coming up with a great idea and thinking about it for a few minutes and while I’m thinking about how I can try to make this happen I begin to doubt myself.

But despite all of the potential distractions its still our responsibility to achieve our personal, family and professional goals.
