Thank you for sharing a few minutes of your day with me. This blog is updated every Thursday, with the occasional extra thought or insight posted on an off day. My goal is to encourage you to remain focused on any pre-retirement goals you’ve set for yourself (debt management, health and fitness, relationships, home clutter, etc.).
I’m sorry… Do you mind if I ask you a question? I know I should probably know the answer…
Has anyone ever asked you a question that starts with an apology? Do you start your questions with an apology?
In today’s episode, I talk about how that diminishes your power as a learning individual…
Share this episode with someone you know who loves to ask questions, but always seems apologetic about it. She probably isn’t aware of how it diminishes her power and the intelligence reflected in those questions!
Yikes! Did I actually type “Moments matter as much as goals” in the subject line?
As a self-proclaimed goal setting/goal getting superstar, that is saying a lot!
But yes, I do believe it is true. In this week’s video I share how I stepped away from my computer, and my goal for the afternoon/evening to go for a walk on the beach.
I definitely made the right choice. If you are focused on achieving your goals, I encourage you to be mindful of the “moments” that you may be missing out on if you are too focused on your goals. As the saying goes, “There is a time and a place for everything.” Make time for moments!

Last weekend, Earl and I hiked a 5.2 mile section of the Appalachian Trail here in Maine, USA. We have been “section hiking” the AT for a few years now. This year we hope to finish the final miles in Maine.
When we made our plans to hike this section, we were hoping the day would be clear and cool. The weather forecast was for rain and clouds.
We had two choices:
Watch today’s video to see what we decided! 🙂
Whatever goals you are working towards, be aware that the conditions may not be perfect, but you can still move forward with your plans.
