Can you see where you are going? Do you know where you are? If you don't know where you are you have little hope of getting where you want to be.

Part of 4-part recipe - vision, purpose, mission, goals - vision is the broadest of all. Crafting a vision is about seeing a picture of something you want to exist in the future. It is a target you intend...

Cognition - or thoughts - are what determine how persons understand the world around them and act (or react) within it. At their root, cognition is based on one's belief system.

DTLC Radio 008 – Handling Job Stress - DTLC Radio

Job Stress at Home To one degree or another, we all have to deal with job related stress. Even those who serve in their areas of passion and vocation have to deal with job stress. One of the biggest challenges is keeping it from interfering with our home life. We live in a world of paradox. One one hand we have technology at our fingertips promising an easier life.

DTLC Radio 007 – How to Find Your Passion - DTLC Radio

Passion Passion and vocation (i.e. what you are meant to do with your life) often go hand-in-hand. They are frequently viewed as synonymous - two peas in a pod - though that is not necessarily true.

Some people know what they are passionate about and quickly find a way to live it out. Others, the majority, need to understand that...

Job, Career, or Vocation? Which one of those sounds like what you have? Which one sounds like the one you want to have? There is a difference you know. A job is not a career is not a vocation...these words are not synonymous, contrary to popular opinion. Part of what differentiates one from the other is your attitude and perspective toward work in general. Do You Like To Work? If you were to ask most people, "work" is a dirty 4-letter word that many are trying to get out of. Statistics...

Back to the Beginning – DTLC-Radio-001 - DTLC Radio

In this kick-off edition of DTLC Radio, I go back to my roots in wanting to be Dr. Johnny Fever, disc jockey for ficticious radio station WKRP in Cincinnati as a 10-year-old kid.

This episode simply presents me, Dr. David Turpen, as one who has lived a little life, made mistakes, and learned some...
