Quick Question for 2015.......

Take Control You Have Alternate Options...what will you do differently this year?

Answer in the Disqus comments section below this entry -- I'll start it out!!

In other words.... Don't be THIS GUY in the video below! :) :) (In truth there's a lot to be learned from this little comedy sketch!)

Curating Reality for Happiness and Hyperproductivity

The absolute beginning of the biggest improvements in my adult life came when I started imagining not just what would be "good enough" but what would be "ideal".  Thing is, you can always scale back from the ideal, or work up to the ideal--but the act of thinking of the ideal at all can help (at least it helped me) remove some self-imposed barriers I had no idea even existed!   I was "driving with the parking brake on" so to speak.   And I think this is in some degree human nature, especially in "these trying economic times" etc.   But let's not limit ourselves...   The key to this exercise is
