I'm a prolific reader of fiction. My average over the past 35 years has been around 60 books per year. I will admit that my recall of material is not that great as speed reading doesn't really help my retention, which is why I have certain books that I read over and over again, I … Continue reading Reading Goals

When Priorities Change In An Instant
I've always known that I love my wife more than anyone else in the world - even my sons, who I love deeply. I've always known that I need my wife more than anything else in the world. I didn't realize just how important she is to me until she had a severe medical crisis … Continue reading When Priorities Change In An Instant
Pre-printed, BuJo, DIY?
It's the time of year when many of us gasp as we realize that we didn't get all of our stuff done. Last January we just knew that 2019 was the year we were finally going to get our act together and our magic planning tool would help us keep all of our poop in … Continue reading Pre-printed, BuJo, DIY?
Goal Setting and Planning
I recently received a request to take a closer look at goal setting and planning. I ask for your indulgence as I attempt to explain the process I follow. "Goals are dreams with a deadline" "Goals have to be big" "Goals drive productivity" I've seen so much information about goals over the years that it … Continue reading Goal Setting and Planning
My Son Published a book!
Culled is the first effort of my oldest son Ross. Of course I'm biased, but I think it is extremely well written. Check it out sometime. Of course I paid for it and receive nothing in return for this blatant promo. You might like it. I know I did.

I'm sure they don't mean that they are proud to be 'separated by a distance'. Drives me batty! (Auto-correct wanted to make that Barry not … Continue reading A Part

The left side book is for calendars and planning out in the future. I do rely more on Google Calendar, … Continue reading What My 2 Book Modified Bullet Journal Looks Like
What If I’m Wrong?
I know that I’m probably the only person who has ever made a decision about planning materials/supplies/systems that turns out to be wrong. Since I am, please indulge me and read along so that you can avoid the same sort of mistake. One of the real keys for any planning system for me is that … Continue reading What If I’m Wrong?
Just a thought…
I've been using the same basic planning method for around 30 years. I've veered off a time or two to try digital methods, other "systems" etc. But I've always came back to the old Time Power system. Of course, I've adapted it to take into account that I am likely exposed to 100 times more … Continue reading Just a thought…
The end/beginning of the month is an opportune moment to take a snapshot of what you accomplished last month and to take stock of what you want to accomplish in the upcoming month. I understand that time is more of a continuum and that the flow of events doesn't necessarily pause until a certain calendar … Continue reading Monthly Planning
