Q-Tip 10/9/17

Q-Tip 9/18/17

Happy Monday My Friends, Do you wake up some mornings and think, "OH NO, here I go again, another day, wonder what is going to happen today.” Thinking about the day ahead negatively?  But what if you were to wake up each morning and think, "what a great day this is going to be," instead. That first thought as you begin your day may change the entire outcome. Do you want to approach it in a good frame of [...]

LEARNING FROM MISTAKES “To make no mistake is not in the power of man; but from their errors and mistakes the wise and good learn wisdom for the future.” (Plutarch) Our resume doesn’t show the mistakes we’ve made, which is unfortunate, because our mistakes tell a story of their own.

Q-Tip 7/17/17

Happy Monday my friends, Hope everyone enjoyed their weekend. This is a special tip for all my friends that may be going through a difficult time.

Our boss tells us we’ve [...]
