"The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results".
I have mentioned the above definition of insanity to my kids so many times that they now finish my sentence. I use the phrase often because it stops me from making the same mistake over and over again and hopefully my kids will learn a life lesson.
How can someone expect to lose weight when they keep eating the same diet that caused them to gain weight?
How can someone expect to be rich when they stick to the same work routine and spending habits?

My wife always says to me that my standards are too high. She says that I am never satisfied and that is why I am so hard on myself. Perhaps it is because society and peer pressure places so much value on pushing forward and trying to get ahead all the time; being happy for what we have can often be construed as laziness.

So it's done. Finished. Settled.
The real question is...Read More

My birthday is usually a time to reflect. A time to evaluate. A time to measure my goals. Today is my birthday and I have been giving much thought to what money represents to me.
Money means a lot of different things to different people. Money can represent potential stuff. It can also represent potential experiences. For some, money can represent power or social acceptance. Others might see money as a corrupting or evil influence. Still others might see money as a tool for promoting social change.
