Maybe it’s because of my hectic schedule lately or maybe it’s because I’m feeling the desire to be somewhere else or maybe it’s because I’m in a bit of a holding pattern when it comes to my trip – not able to leave, but definitely ready to leave.  Whatever it is, I’ve been contemplating bigger issues about [...]

Two years seems like a long time.  That’s 730 days.  730 sunrises.  730 sunsets.  104 weekends.  That’s a lot of BBQs with friends, festivals, hikes, concerts, emails answered, hours commuting, trash pick up days, bills paid, phone calls returned, lunches with co-workers, and papers pushed. 

But in the context of our lives, it’s a short time.  Let’s say you live [...]

I know, I know, I’ve been pretty much MIA the past month or so while I’ve been getting my house ready to list for sale.  I can blame it on that or that I’ve been working my behind off and haven’t had time to breathe or sleep let alone write.  I wish I had a better [...]

The past couple of years I’ve made it a tradition to [...]

When people think they’d like to work at a non-profit, they have certain perceptions of what it would be like.  They think it’s more fun than working in the corporate world.  They think it’s always fulfilling and satisfying.  Some think every non-profit is innovative.  They think it’s easy.

Recently I found myself talking to a friend of a friend about his desire to do something [...]

If You Had The Time…

On November 13, 2011 By

If you had the time, isn’t everywhere within walking distance?

I saw this saying painted on a board hanging at a restaurant this summer and it’s stuck with me since then.  For me, it’s a good reminder that I can go anywhere and do anything and there is no excuse for not making it happen.  All it takes is the time [...]

The Cost of Big Dreams

On November 10, 2011 By

When I taught Junior Achievement classes in the Atlanta Public School District, one of the lessons was about understanding the different kinds of costs inherent in doing business.  I remember thinking 6th graders are not going to comprehend sunk costs or opportunity costs, let alone know how they relate to running a business.  I [...]
