Just like Penelope Trunk said, spring is a great time to find out who you are and where you are going. When I was a child I loved playing with play dough. Getting to form a boring ball of dough into something creative and fun was exciting to me. When you stop and think about […]

My Face-Plant, Sir Isaac Newton & Clearly Defined Goals – Lesson Learned

I recently attended a conference out of town and while traveling; I typically arise early and spend 40-60 minutes running on the treadmill.
