Questions I ask during my daily journaling practice.

A few questions I ask myself each morning and try to answer. My goal is to live each day with intentionality. This only takes about 15 to 20 minutes per morning. I do this while enjoying my coffee.

– How did I sleep?
– What happened yesterday?
– What were my biggest wins from yesterday?
– What lessons did I learn that I don’t want to forget?
– What am I thankful for right now?
– How am I feeling right now?
– What did I read Today?
– What stood out to me in my reading?
– What are my plans for today?
– How are my finances?
-How are my relationships?

My Favorite Desktop Speakers

Over the years I have tried several types of desktop speakers and after much searching I have chosen the Bose Companion 20 Multimedia Speaker System.
I have always been a fan of Bose Products. I also have the Bose SoundLink Mini Bluetooth Speaker II I use for outdoors in the summer.

I have the Bose Companion 20 speakers attached to my custom built PC (more on that side project later) and my MacBook Pro.
They have a nice warm, rich sound for playing music at a low to moderate volume. I also use them for playing the one game I play. Call of Duty.

Here is a picture of the speakers mounted next to my monitor. Drop me a note if you have questions and Share you favorite desktop speakers with us in the comments.

My Birthday is today. So I share a blast from my past!

Today on my birthday I want to share a blast from my past. This is a song the band I was in recorded in a 16×16 sweatbox we practiced in. Affectionately called “The Barn”. This is about 1994-95. We all have our passions. Remember to live yours. Enjoy or laugh! But it was fun. Click here to listen to the song. “More Power”

Do Over: Rescue Monday, Reinvent Your Work, and Never Get Stuck (Blackstone Audio)

The current audio book I’m listening to!

Publisher’s Summary

The get ready, get going guide to navigating career change and doing work you love!

New York Times best-selling author Jon Acuff has drawn millions of online fans who love his refreshing mix of humor, honesty, and wisdom about the world of work. Now he offers his most important audiobook yet, a guide to making big career changes – by choice or necessity – and escaping the horrible feeling of being trapped in the wrong job.

Acuff finds it amazing that people spend more than 18 years studying and preparing for college but little or no time honing their careers between graduation and retirement. He offers an empowering tool he calls the Career Savings Account, which will change the way you think about your skills, relationships, character, and work ethic. He also shows that if you’re on the wrong track, you already have what you need to change it – even if your family and mortgage mean you can’t simply pick up and move for a new opportunity.

Throughout the book, Acuff features inspiring and funny true stories – not merely his own but those of friends who restarted their careers after a layoff, an extended maternity leave, or simply the realization that they were suffering 50 weeks a year just to pay the bills and enjoy two weeks of vacation. Everyone can benefit from Do Over, from new graduates to 50-somethings and beyond.
