There seems to be an awful lot of unnecessary debate these days.
It’s happening in the sales bull pens!
It’s happening on social networking platforms!

I’ve seen this one go round and round and round (and get this) […]

It had […]

Warning: I’m going to be blunt today! Leave now and come back tomorrow if you’d like when I will return to a kinder gentler Uncle Paul

The “Teacher” appears.
The “teacher” can be an actual person who can help you and . . .
it can also be something that people miss all the time . . .
Our willingness to accept a lesson.

In that moment of acceptance […]

As I look back on 2011, I can’t help but think about some of the challenges that I faced.

The pallbearers brought my coffin slowly down the aisle as the organist played “Lighter shade of pale” She played it with just the right amount of sadness and I must say I was proud of my entrance for a change.
