What are reblogs?

Well..

I’d call them trailers for blog posts.

Let’s say you write a blog post. So, I choose a short snippet of that post (usually the first lines) then add a link to your post. I put this on my blog.

This way, over 139, 000 people get to see this short preview. Those who want to read more, click on the link and go to your blog.

It’s a way to gain exposure.

Connect The Dots

“You can’t connect the dots looking forward you can only connect them looking backwards. 

So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. 

You have to trust in something: your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. 

Because believing that the dots will connect down the road will give you the confidence to follow your heart, even when it leads you off the well worn path.” — Steve Jobs

Fourteen years ago someone read one of my stories.

They didn’t like it. They told me to give up and do something else.

And this made me angry.

15 Insanely Easy Ways to Get More Done in Less Time

It seems to me that the last couple of years have been all about the grind.

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson famously works out twice before we even wake up. Elon Musk sleeps on a couch in his office. Everyone is either working hard or telling everyone else to work hard.

But what about working smart? What about becoming more efficient? Getting more done in less time. Isn’t that something worth looking into?

Well, lucky you, here are twenty ideas to help you work smarter, not just harder. Continue reading

Nine Reasons Why You Must Fall in Love With Working Hard

“The most important thing about art is to work. Nothin else matters except sitting down every day and trying.”Steven Pressfield

What is art?

What has art got to do with life? With working hard?

Well, isn’t art just a way of transcribing a strong feeling? What is life but a series of feelings?

Art, life, love, war… they are all so close that sometimes they even touch, and the truth is that one doesn’t live fully until one becomes willing to get their hands dirty doing the hard work; one is most human when facing the inner resistance that begs for Netflix and chill.

Here are 9 reasons why you must fall in love with working hard.

On the news this morning, I watched as a giant Christmas tree was brought to a local shopping center for raising and decorating. The radio is already playing Christmas music full time, and my choir is fully immersed in preparations for our Christmas concert music. For any of you who have read my blog in the past, you also know that for me, this season is a time of reflection and contemplation on what the year has been and what the future could possibly hold. Not uncommonly, this reflection and contemplation has directed me down some difficult paths.

You see, this year for me is a season of “without”. It’s the

The Edge

Once or twice in your life you find yourself at the edge of everything you ever believed, felt, or trusted. It’s such a terrifying position to be in. Fear, guilt, and doubt cast a dark shadow on your freedom, and it does seem there’s nothing to do.

Of course, the irony is that you can’t spend too much time in this position without understanding some (or most) of the things that need to be understood. Continue reading

You Can Have Anything You Want

People always get what they want. But there is a price for everything. Failures are either those who do not know what they want or are not prepared to pay the price asked them. The price varies from individual to individual. Some get things at bargain-sale prices, others only at famine prices. But it is no use grumbling. Whatever price you are asked, you must pay. – W.H. Auden

We want what we want, and we must fight to get it.

That is all.
