Good Monday morning! Last week, I had the opportunity to reconnect with a friend of mine that I had not spoken with since college, save a couple of emails. We picked up as if there hadn’t been an 8 + year lapse of communication; as if we’d just been hanging out in the dining hall or the dorms […]

Good morning! Last week I started typing one of these messages, and it went completely off track into another message that I was not ready to send, so I didn’t. As I was typing yesterday, I almost spawned off into a completely different message as well toward the end, but decided to erase it and save it for […]
Good Monday morning! Maybe I’m wrong. I’m pretty sure that there was a time in the past (possibly a past life) where I could really sing. I mean, I could drop notes like it was my business. In fact, I’m not really sure why I was never awarded a multimillion dollar recording contract. I guess […]
Good morning! I just need one little thing to cheer me up. Anything. That’s the tweet that popped up in my timeline last night minutes before I fell asleep. We all hit rough patches; times when we need a little something extra to get us through a situation. Some patches are brief. Some are lengthy. The thing to […]
Good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen! To whom, or for what are you responsible? If our “friends and family” is the best that we can come up with, I think we’re very shortsighted. I don’t expect that we’ll each shell out hundreds or thousands of dollars for every admirable cause on the planet, or hop on the next plane to […]
Happy Friday! Whenever I speak to groups, especially student-athletes and other young people, I make sure to mention that we all have a platform and an audience that pays attention to us each and every day. Whether our audience is 5 people or it’s 5,000 people, we have the opportunity to influence somebody’s life. Does that […]
Good morning! If you have no faith, you’ve lost your battle. – Bill Cosby
Good morning, ladies and gentlemen! As we get older, we tend to move from relying on the advice of others to seeking the opinions of others. We make decisions based on sifting through the the information that we gather from a variety of sources, and then figuring out whether or not it is in line with […]
Happy Friday, ladies and gentlemen! Unfortunately we don’t always control the environment that we are in at the moment, the goings on of that environment, or the people in the environment. We only control the way we react to or handle our environment. Fortunately none of these things is permanent. Eventually we’ll leave the environment. […]
Small disciplines repeated with consistency every day lead to great achievements gained slowly over time. – John C. Maxwell
Some people require more praise than others. – 8,789 Words of Wisdom
Good morning! A friend of mine passed these two quotes on to me, a month apart almost to the day. Interestingly enough they fit together nicely.
When I was a freshman in high school, I tried out for the varsity basketball team. Just before our first scrimmage two of the upperclassmen got into some kind of trouble and weren’t going to be allowed to compete.
Happy Friday! Last night I watched a high school football game. It was a game. I’m not sure that I could call it a competition since it wasn’t very competitive. Although … as in most sports, there are little competitions inside the game. In lacrosse, who wins the ground ball battles? In basketball, who wins […]
