mini victories

i feel the same way dean. chip away chip away chip away and when you look at what you've done you realize you've actually accomplished things and that feels great. all too often i feel like i haven't gotten anything done at the end of the day. now that i'm tracking what i'm doing, i'm not only seeing how much i do but i'm more aware of the time i spend and better able to say no to the things that aren't important. i get more done. i can see it now.
keep moving forward, rob

This is a beautiful picture. You don't even need instagram for this picture. You made it come to life. This is one of the most important lessons I have learned so far. I have to admit that I was overwhelmed. But I will try to pick off one thing at a time until I can make this work for me. Thanks.

Slow & Steady wins the race!

You are so right - Thanks Dean!

Thank you for the insight. One step at a time is alot easier than feeling overwhelmed with it all at once!

Another group that I hang out with sometimes says this too... Another good one to remember is,"Easy does it - but DO it!"

Pick off one at a time

That's a wonderful lesson you observed from your daughter Dean. I think lessons are all around us and we just have to be open to see and learn. God speaks in that "still small voice". We have to be quiet in our spirit to hear it. Thanks for sharing what you heard! One step, one day (one deal) at a time!

Instagram has new policies-just an FYI

You MAY want to review the new policies of Instagram. You may be giving up rights to your pictures-even if they are you. I'll let you interpret their TOS. There was a backlash but I don't believe it has been clarified. Rather than debate the details here, do a search and read the buzz.

Check out Minneapolis St Paul Homes at my Twin Cities real estate site.

Thanks Dean
