Becoming More Effective By Slowing Down / Accountability Challenge

There is so much power in going slow and steady. We have all heard of the turtle and no doubt seen it in action many times. I often wonder if anyone has ever seen a turtle go fast, but that's another story. My concentration though, is making a conscious effort to really slow down and become even more effective than I am already. So the question becomes, how much of what I am doing in my life right now is feeding me and how much is just artificial filler? We all say that we have so much to do at one point in our day or week or month. However, recently, I have been asking myself more and more, how much of it can I shave off and just zero in on productivity in a way that truly rewards me and those around me?

What Does Christmas Mean To You?

What does Christmas mean to you? Each and every one of us has a sensation that goes through us on the day before, as well as the actual day. Does it bring up happiness or sadness?

The reasons are simple, it makes us concentrate on appreciation of others and what they really mean to us. I can see the difference in people during these holidays. I of course am only speaking of the positive side at this moment.

  Being here in NYC, the city lights up and the bags are in every person's hands that you see. My question is, why does it seem to be a burden? Let me explain. If you buy a gift for a loved one, why can't you get a gift that expresses what they mean to you? Why does it seem that people are trying to out do the last gift that they gave or not come across as cheap or so many other things that I see an…
