Pareto’s Law – 80/20 rule

Friday, September 20, 2013

Stay focused on the 20% that matters. Those tasks in the 20% will likely produce 80 percent of our results. So, it’s critical to identify and focus on those things. When the “crisis of the day” begins to eat up precious time, remind yourself of the critical 20% you need to focus on. If anything on the list of activities and action items has to fall by the wayside – left undone – be sure it isn’t listed in that […]

Password Mania

Wednesday, September 18, 2013

Are you tired of ‘trying’ to remember passwords?

I recommend Dashlane, a password protection & encryption program.

I have been searching for a password program – Dashlane does all the work for you.  I heard about it on CBS This Morning (a terrific program).

Wednesday, September 18, 2013

The orphan child, the garage. He’s detached, lonely, cold and gets absolutely no respect from his siblings or parents. He’s gained tons of weight from empty carbs and junk food. He stinks; hasn’t been bathed for years. He’s the forgotten, the silenced, bloated and unhealthy; Le Garage. He starts out with a promising future full of hopes and dreams.

Curve-Balls and Transitions

Sunday, September 15, 2013

LIFE THROWS CURVE-BALLS; an unexpected death, a forced move, health issues. We don’t know when or where they’ll land or how we will deal with them until circumstances arise.

Transitioning is difficult and stressful – it’s wrestling with the unknown.  Some of us are fortunate to have families that can assist, but sometimes they live far away. Some of us don’t have families and we feel alone. Having an advocate for you and your loved ones is the first step.
