Sum Greater than the Parts

When the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. Explaining synergy gets a little convulated, but basically, it amounts to this: you take two parts and together, they create something that’s worth more than the combined value of the two parts. Two plus two equals five. I learned of a practical example of this the other day. A co-worker was telling me … Read More Sum Greater than the Parts

Pages of the World Book

“The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.” ― Augustine of Hippo Travel, or otherwise explore the world. It is easy to dismiss the decisions of others, particularly those of people in other cultures, if one has never traveled more than 100 miles from their place of birth. Brief trips to a large city for business travel are … Read More Pages of the World Book

One step forward…I feed the cats. Another step or two…take a shower, brush my teeth, pull together the day’s clothing. Is everything clean? Yes. Does it still … Read More One Step

Being thirty was about the best thing that ever happened to me. I’d set goals and achieved them, and the world seemed like a welcome place, with manifold glorious destinations. My mind was likely at its sharpest (although admittedly, I still had much to learn), I’ve probably never looked better, before or since, and I’d started to make some money. Not a lot, but … Read More The Ideal(istic) Adult

So Onward

I have an idea of what I want to do with my life, where I want to go and how I want to be in this world, but getting there is hard. I’ve had these thoughts before, and pursued my dream. While I may have achieved my goals, that didn’t ultimately bring me happiness. Still, time has taught me so much. It’s possible this … Read More So Onward

Leap, or sit still

I sit these days, frozen, waiting for events to transpire before my next move. I’m plotting that move, knowing I have only partial control over how it will unfold. I could get out there again and face the odds I faced before, with likely the same results. Nothing has changed that would make me think otherwise, which is why I’m waiting. In the meantime … Read More Leap, or sit still
