Learn to Forget

Learn to ForgetWhat's behind me is not important.  That was a great line from a comedy I saw many years ago. The line was delivered by this gregarious man driving a convertible sports car at break neck speeds around hairpin turns down a mountain road while being chased by the bad guys. Without warning he reached up, tore off the rear-view mirror and tossed it over the cliff. At that ...

The Deception of a Best Friend

Best FriendWe all need friends.  We all need people in our lives to talk to.  To reflect with.  To share ideas with, to laugh and love and experience great moments and challenges with.  We are also all disappointed and deceived on a regular basis by the one closest to us.  They deceive you, lie to you, beat you down, steal away your dreams and still you keep going back asking ...

The Lender Of Time

The Lender Of TimeWe often lament the prospect that there are just not enough hours in the day.  Too many tasks and too few hours. Much like the adage that we have, "Too much week left at the end of the money".  Sadly, one of the first tasks to get tossed off of the priority list when pressed for time are those activities that actually allow us to grow as ...

The truth is that the ...

Now I See It, Now I Don't

So much of the mystery of life centers around the discussion of the comparative of nature/nurture.  "Is who I am today the result of birth or experience"?  There is no question that certain aspects of life and behaviour are rooted in who we were when we drew our first breath but I expect the majority of what makes us who we are comes by way of the information we take ...

The Neurosurgeon Without Training

Doubt is a horrible affliction of the mind.  Doubt is what walls are built of.  Doubt is the essence of potholes and boulders.  Obstacles and roadblocks.  Doubt is everything and in an instant can be proven to be nothing. Nothing because its not real.  It does not exist but only in the mind as a thought.  I share the question as often as I can that I found as a young ...
