March 15th, 2006 · 2 Comments

Lately, I have been reminded of something I knew, but had temporarily forgotten.  The more you have passion, enthusiasm and engagement with your work, the more everything in your life works.

Passion

January 25th, 2006 · 2 Comments

Did I get you in with that title? Even though today is our 20th wedding anniversary and passion obviously plays a big part in THAT achievement, that is not the subject of this posting today. Anyway. I have been thinking about passion as it relates to our work.  To what we do with our hours [...]
