(#407) Are You Just Doing Stuff?
We can easily get caught up in the “noise” around us if we allow that to happen. The wrong things end up pushing the right things to the side. An upcoming speaking engagement reminds me of a truism when it … Continue reading

(#270) Have You Spent Time With Ida Ownly?
