How are you going to use the time that you save?

I love the AT&T wireless plan with rollover minutes - wouldn't it be great if it applied to life? Wow, I have 800 unused rollover minutes this month - I think I'll use some tonight after midnight, after the regular 24-hour period expires - maybe do some more typing or get a couple extra hours of sleep.

What if we were able to save an extra 10 or 15 minutes each day and keep it in a rollover account or under the mattress for an emergency when we need some more time?

As tempting as that sounds, we know that we all have the same amount of time each day and that once it passes, that's it. All of us have the same 24 hours, 60 minutes, 1,440 minutes, and 86,400 seconds - depending on how you want to look at it.

It doesn't matter how old we are, where we live, or anything else - we all get the same allotment each day. We can be more efficient, but we can't really save time.

Whose idea was it to put the comma right next to the period?

Take arguably the two most used punctuation marks - the comma and the period - and put them right next to each other on the keyboard. Not too smart if you ask my opinion. Why can't there be some space between them so you can intentionally choose the… more
Posted hours should reflect actual hours of operation

Last night I took my wife's car for an oil change. I have been there before so I know that they are open until 8:00. I felt that closer to the end of their day might be less of a wait. I arrived a little before 7:30 and was told that they were… more
Actions speak louder than words

Coaches of professional athletic teams are human, but we demand a lot from them. Everyone's entitled to a bad day - but coaches only have a few opportunities each season to do well - 12 games in college and 16 games (not counting palyoffs or… more
No news isn't always good news

Isn't is interesting how we go through life sometimes ignoring things that we maybe should know about but figure somehow it's better not to know - or that no news means everything's OK? Like when you haven't heard from a lender for a couple of weeks… more
Momentum is powerful

Sometimes we need a little extra boost, some encouragement. Other times, we seem to be doing everything right. Occasionally, nothing seems right. Ever notice in a baseball or football game how one team can make a great play and then seem to be able… more
Business casual - blame it on us Boomers

There was a time not too long ago that a businessman would need to wear a suit and tie, or a jacket and tie, or a sweater and tie - or something and a tie - if they wanted to make a good first impression. Then we Boomers grew up and figured out it… more
