Are You Pre-paving a Smooth Road?
They’re putting down new pavement on Scottsdale Road in front of my community – what a mess at first as they roughed it up to get rid of all the old bumps and cracks in the pavement. Now, it is smooth and quiet – a total joy to drive on it. Isn’t that just…Read More
COMPARING & SHOULD-ING Part 2
When I wrote last week’s blog about Comparing and Should-ing, I knew there was a Paul Harvey. . . the rest of the story moment that is so rich it needed to be a stand alone blog. It’s all about how we relate and communicate with each other. I’m calling it the comparison syndrome. We all…Read More
