We usually can come up with an explanation but that explanation is frequently post-action. So what's happening? I'm not sure but here are three tips that seem to me to be related. The ear worms are hear to give us time to ponder the "Why" of it.


Pursuing Personal Excellence

The pursuit of Personal Excellence is a lifetime journey and never merely an event. What's more, it's a journey that many start but only a few sustain.

Mind Over Madness

Most of the time we have no need to make that extra effort to relate and to get along. Our worlds are fairly calm and predictable. There are those times though, those times when, as the country song says, "People are crazy." Sure, it's not clear whether it's "people" or just maybe us who are crazy. It is at those times when today's tips come in most handy. It is a matter of mind over madness. It's us or them.
