Because, It Just Makes Sense

As humans, we go about our day constructing our reality. We think we’re logical in our choices but not really. Consider these common behaviors. We have coffee because it wakes us up. We react a certain way to our kids because they make us react that way. We drive the speed limit because we don’t want [...]

How Blogging Can Make You A Better Human Being

What does it mean to be a good human being? I’d argue it means contributing to the world in a positive way and helping others. Can we agree on this? If so, then it stands to reason that helping more not only makes the world better…it makes you better as well. It is mutually beneficial. [...]

Look at unsubscribes from your mailing list as a good think – The Culling of the Herd

I know what you are thinking.  You spent a lot of time coming up with ideas of what you would send out to an email newsletter list.  You spent time setting up the mailing list functions in your auto-responder of choice.  And you spent some time maybe designing your newsletter with html. You set up the sign [...]
