4 tips to having and keeping an empty email in-box

 

4 tips to having and keeping an empty email in-box

If you are like many people out there, your email inbox(es) are so full, you often feel overwhelmed.  How many of those emails will you ever actually read or act on?  I too used to struggle with this problem.  I had multiple email accounts with thousands of emails in each.  For awhile now, though I have been ...

Life Liberty Happiness

 

The United States presidential election was yesterday.  In the U.S. there are elections throughout the year within individual states.  People vote on policies of state and local governments. Every 4 years, the people of the United States elect a President.  Few countries in the world have a system of government whereby the head of the country can change every 4 years.  It is one of the beauties of the system in the United States.

However, this system is not without its ...

True Colors, Real Beauty

images-6

Fall is truly a beautiful time of year.  The crisp cool air. The smells of chimney fires. The colors of the leaves…I was walking with my youngest daughter the other day.  We collected leaves for her science lesson that week.  She was excited to share with me things she was learning about leaves.  How chlorophyll in the leaves made them appear green during the ...

October 30, 1946 in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, my father George Robert Graf, entered the world. The youngest (by over a decade) of 3 children born to Alexander Karl Graf and Johanna Graf he made quite an impact!

I was first introduced to George Robert Graf in 1971 when he was 24 years old, although my memories of our first few years together are practically non existent! My first memories of my dad, are of him playing clarinet in the living room, ...

Generous Generosity

 

GENEROSITY. Ever played a word-find game? I loved playing them as a kid. My brother and I competed fiercely at coming up with a series of smaller words from one larger word or combination of words.

I attended a vision-casting event this week for a new church called Emmaus Road starting in Stanwood, Washington.  Mike Satterfield, an exceptional, engaging Bible teacher, is the senior pastor of this start-up.  If you live in the area and are looking for a church home ...

One Life, One Story

One life, one story.

In remembering September 11, 2001 this past weekend I was reminded of the heroic stories of the people who did what was necessary despite the circumstances in which they found themselves.  The first responders who went into the burning buildings to save others, while most likely knowingly giving up their own lives.  The people who diverted and crashed the plane which had been on course to the White House.  The people on the ground who help escort ...

Dear Younger Self, Changing Life’s Ending

 

Dear Younger Self,

 

Do you have regrets? Do you wish you had done things differently in life?  Do you wish you had made some better choices?  Pursued a different career? Taken up a different hobby?  Gone for that earlier promotion?

Yes I do.  Opportunities of which I have failed to take advantage, relationships I have failed to maintain, words spoken I wish I could take back, words held back I wish I would have spoken.

What if  though, we could change the outcome ...

Remembering – Kon Tiki

On this day in 1947 the Kon Tiki raft reached land in the Pacific Ocean as it ran up on a reef off the Raiora Atoll in the Tuamotu islands! This project was conceived and executed by Thor Heyerdahl, a Norwegian explorer and anthropologist and his crew of 4 other norwegians and a swede.

The purpose of this expedition was to prove Heyerdahl’s theory that the pacific islands were inhabited by peoples from the americas, centuries ago.  Heyerdahl believed that these ...

Commuting Sentences

 

Today, President Obama commuted the sentences of 214 inmates! It was the largest single day on record for commuting sentences!  I want to applaud the president for this action.  All presidents have this ability and traditionally do carry out this action of commuting sentences of inmates who they feel are being incarcerated for their crimes longer than necessary.

As a Life Coach, I want people to see their value in life and to pursue the dreams they have to become some ...
