I Am A Blind Man

Where did my time go? Where did my money go? I have often asked myself these questions without being able to answer it. I am like a blind man wandering aimlessly. A responsible man is a man with sight and knows the answer to these questions. This gives the man with sight the advantage because he can make informed decisions instead of wondering what just happened. The man with sight does not beat himself up at the end of the day for not getting anything done. And he does not look in his wallet to find that $20.00 turned into a pile of change. I am learning that there is a way to get might sight back so I can take control where my time and my money goes. If you want to take control of your time and money follow these steps: 1) Track where it goes now. For one day write down everything you do and how long it takes you. To track your budget, look at your credit card statement and see what products and services you buy. 2) Group like activities or costs together so that you can get a complete picture. 3) Plan where you are going to spend your time and money. This means you make a budget and you plan out your week in advance. 4) Cut out extras. After tracking my activity, I found that I was spending too much money on Coffee and too much time planning. I changed that. 5) During your day look at what you are doing and what you should be doing. At the beginning of each week look...

You Are Invited But You’re Not Welcome.

You are invited but your not welcome.    Recently, I had a party and invited over an entire group of 80 people. I know almost everyone in the group but I am friends with only 20%.  I thought it would be a big party because there were many people saying they wanted to do more group activities.  At the height  of the party there were 11 people. All of which were part of the 20%.  To my surprise I had found that there is a clear difference between an invitation and being welcome. People need to know and feel that they are not only allowed to come but there presence is anticipated. They also want to have a connection to the familiar. Both of these I failed to do.  As I think back, all 80 people in the group where connected closely with one of the 11 people that did come. If I had framed the party as a community event that happen to be meeting at my house rather then a personal party I bet it would have been bigger.  What do you think is the difference between an invitation and making someone both feel and know they welcome?    Originally posted by Spencer Field  Photo credit: Nana B Agyei Blurring added with...

“How’s that working for you?”

“How’s that working for you?” There are things in life that I want. Some of them I already have and some I don’t. The question becomes how do I get the things that I don’t have yet? From my understanding of life the answer is simple; I can keep doing what I have been doing or I can start doing something different. At this point in the conversation with myself, I pull my one and only Dr. Phil line: “How’s that working for you?” If I have been doing something for awhile and I have not gotten what I want it might be time to start doing something else. To steal a line from the singers Mary Mary “If you wanna get what you never got you gotta do something that you never done.” What do you want and what are you going to do to get it? Comment below. For further academic research on this topic I would recommend this video:   Originally posted by Spencer...
