You Gotta Love What You Do.

Never continue in a job you don’t enjoy. If you’re happy in what you’re doing, you’ll like yourself, you’ll have inner peace. And if you have that, along with physical health, you will have had more success than you could possibly have imagined. ~Johnny Carson Who inspired you? Who encouraged you to dream about a […]

Do Your Past Job Skills Point To Something New?

Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved. ~Helen Keller Combine Your Skills Into Something New Doug and I learned a lot about our current marketable skills when we reviewed our job history. We discovered that we possess […]

Have You Ever Had A Career Path?

Basically, we’ve grown up very focused on the institution. The institution tells me what to do. It tells me where to go. It tells me what my career path is, and then I, sort of, attach my own personal desires, my own personal interests. I think we’re living in a time where we’re going to […]

What Is Your Work Style?

I think the person who takes a job in order to live – that is to say, for the money – has turned himself into a slave. ~Joseph Campbell Where do you fit in? Do you fit in? Doug and I decided to focus on our work style. Career-wise, we all know what we’ve done […]

Men admire the man who can organize their wishes and thoughts in stone and wood and steel and brass. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson Wish And Make It So. How many wishes do you make in a day? Is it enough to keep your fairy godmother driving her Mercedes, paid for with consultation fees? As children, […]

Complaints And Unfulfilled Needs.

What do you complain about?

Doug and I noticed that we sometimes start feeling agitated for […]

Tweaking The Monkey.

It may be hard for an egg to turn into a bird: it would be a jolly sight harder for it to learn to fly while remaining an egg. We are like eggs at present. And you cannot go on indefinitely being just an ordinary, decent egg. We must be hatched or go bad.~ C. […]

Enlightened Monkey Knows Himself.

A human being has so many skins inside, covering the depths of the heart. We know so many things, but we don’t know ourselves! Why, thirty or forty skins or hides, as thick and hard as an ox’s or bear’s, cover the soul. Go into your own ground and learn to know yourself there. ~Meister […]

Interview With The Roadblocks

If you’re trying to achieve, there will be roadblocks. I’ve had them; everybody has had them. But obstacles don’t have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don’t turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it. ~Michael Jordan We’re all ready to strike […]
