Procrastinations, Sabbaticals, and Excuses
Too often we get caught up in all the stresses of the day and forget what matters. Doing this podcast is part of of meditation. Sorry for the length of time between shows.

Purpose. Why am I doing this? Why am I making this choice?
This about purpose. Not so deep as life's purpose, but what is the purpose of the things, individually, that we do. Why am I buying this thing? Why do I associate with these people? Can I look at myself in the mirror and honestly ask myself, why am I making this decision, big or small? What is the purpose. This simple question opens up a whole new world.

Action and Completion
The simple ideas of action and completion and how important they are. We can often work for the shear sake of work, because we are supposed to. We are busy, make ourselves so because that is what we think is expected of us. We have to be self aware and listen to what is inside of us. In my case, acknowledging a creative bent and acting on it has opened a new world. I like to create. I can create. I am a creative. Words I have not spoken to myself until recently, but so glad I do now.

Don't look behind you, seeing the world through other peoples eyes

If we can see the world through the eyes of those we are working with, we have a greater chance to understand, empathize and succeed. Alot of anecdotes as we search together for some meaning to something that I have been trying to define for years.
