Our Kids Are Getting Older, But We’re Not

We find it funny… our kids are getting older, but we’re not.

How do we know they’re getting older? Here are the clues…
1) Our oldest son left home to take his 3rd year of university in Germany. He’ll be there for a year.

2) Our second son is starting university at home this year. No more high school for him.

3) There are no more hockey games to go to where we get to watch our sons play. Yes, we could go watch our second son play beer-league hockey, but he’d probably be embarrassed.

4) Our daughter is still enrolled in dance classes, but we don’t need to drive her there anymore.

5) Our daughter is in grade 11 this year.

That’s definite proof that our kids are growing up… and mighty quickly too!!

How do we know that we’re not getting old? Here are the clues…
1) We don’t feel old. (That should be enough… but OK… here are more clues…)

2) We still do a lot of the things we did when we were “younger”… like biking, running, hiking, etc.

3) We can still remember being our kids’ ages. (Yes, that does scare us)

4) We still have dreams and goals. (No dreams and goals = not living)

5) We’re still learning. (Again, not learning = not living)

There you go… proof that we’re still young.

If we look at life this way, then age truly is a state of mind. Yes our kids are getting older… but they’re still young…. and yes, our “age” counted in years may indicate we’re not kids anymore… but darn it, we’re definitely still young too.

So get out there and do things. Tap into your goals and dreams and take action on them. Make plans for your business and set your sites for the horizon (remember to enjoy the journey along the way). And learn… learn more about what you’re passionate about…. become an expert in it and grow your business around it… then it’ll be play and not work at all.

Play = Young. The fountain of youth isn’t a place, it’s living your passion. And that is well within all of our reach… so go for it!! We’ll see you all out on the playground.

Drop us a line in the comment section and tell us what your passion is. We’d love to know.

Top 5 Reasons to Organize Your Social Media Relationships

Social Media
.

You, like most everyone else, have a ton of contacts you’ve met through Twitter, Facebook, your blog, and numerous other Social Media networking sites. And that’s where any information you have regarding those relationships stays… on Twitter, Facebook, etc.

You need to organize and manage those relationships… for your benefit and theirs. So now you’re wondering… how beneficial can that really be?

Well here it is (drum roll, please)… the Top 5 Reasons why you need to organize and manage your Social Media relationships:

5) Facebook, Twitter, etc…
With all the contacts you have today, some seriously potential relationships can slip away without you even being aware of it. You need to keep track of your major relationships… at least have the names of your contacts, their Twitter page, Facebook page, and website or blog.

4) Joint Ventures
You have a great idea for an amazing online or offline business venture. What you need is someone else with specific skills to make the idea work and rocket to success. If you’ve organized your Social Media relationships, and have basic information on those contacts, your joint venture partner may be as close as your keyboard.

Old Cherokee Lesson of Life

.

.

.

One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people.

He said, “My son, the battle is between two wolves inside us all.

One is Evil – It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.”

The other is Good – It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.”

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather: “Which wolf wins?”

The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one you feed.

So what wolf are you feeding right now?

Cool Tool – Visual Thesauras

Online dictionaries are a dime a dozen these days, but can that also be said about the online thesaurus?

Visual Thesaurus provides a  little more innovative and high tech use of displaying words and it’s relationships to Nouns, Adjectives, Verbs and Adverbs.

This is a one of a kind experience where you can actually visually see the different related words. For those visually minded people, you will see the words spatially.

Visual thesaurus is $20 per year. It can increase your brain power and give you a whole new outlook on your vocabulary. Great for both children and adults, the Visual Thesaurus is the best online thesaurus resource on the web.

So get rid of that outdated old Thesaurus that is taking precious shelf space (and collecting enough dust bunnies to start a farm) and opt for the best online thesaurus resource at your fingertips.
