The other day I had assigned a task to a new hire, a pretty junior developer. The task was to do some work on a web site. I was talking to him at one point in the day and he said "I am going to go work on that double click you want on that web site".
At the time I did not think anything of it. He went off to work on it and I got back to whatever I was doing.
The next morning, in the shower it suddenly occurred to me, "double click, why did he say double…Continue

Hi all - I'm new here. Been listening/reading Dan's stuff off/on for a couple years. I encorporated a lot of it into a biz idea last year, which was moderately successful: End The Fed Coin Project. I learned a lot there, one of which is I need to find time to build community, etc.
Currently I'm familiarizing myself even further with blogging, and ALL the ins and outs - social media, analytics, SEO, podcasting,…Continue

A number of years ago, when hubby and I were dating and I was still a poor college student, he valiantly volunteered to make repairs to my car, which had a dead heater core. (If you’ve ever replaced a heater core, you may be chuckling at this point.) It’s a good thing he was smitten with me, because by the time he reached the heater core, his conclusion was that when the car was manufactured, the heater core was mounted into the empty frame, and the rest of the vehicle built around…Continue

"I’ve always told people you can make a living selling things that people need; e.g. washing machines, transmissions and light bulbs. But you can get rich selling things that people want – chewing gum, vacation trips, motorcycles and ladies panties."
Dan's blog about panties really struck a cord with me this morning. I am building a website to explain how to get software developed to people who don't know a 0 from a 1 (or why that…Continue

This was part of my daily reading today:
The LORD says "I will guide you along the best pathway of your life. I will advise you and watch over you. Do not be like a senseless horse or mule that needs a bit and bridle to keep it under control."
All of us pray for guidance and direction from God, we want to fulfill his purpose. When the way isn't clear, he will guide us, but we must not force his hand by our senseless ways. We must be wise ourselves so that we don't stray off…Continue

I just read a statement from Daniel Tardy that said Valentines Day is usually the time that people have already given up on their New Yeas resolutions. Wow we give our life changing goals a whole 45 days to be complete. On top of that we quit in the middle of the shortest month of the year! I want to start a new business on Jan.1, but if I am not profitable and able to leave my current job I will be done Feb.14. Or…Continue

Sorry I've not been active so far to this point. Today is the first time I've logged in since joining this site. So far, I find this site very informative, but also very overwhelming. I find there's a great deal of information here, and this causes me sometimes to get distracted..by browsing the site, etc.
So....in an attempt to actually ACCOMPLISH something here today...LOL I'd like to ask a few questions...
ONE: Is there maybe a chat session…Continue

Ever heard the expression, “colder than it looks outside”? Well, I encountered some nice people today that made things seem warmer than they might have otherwise appeared to be. The Midwest along with other areas of the country got hit with an ice storm on February 1st and…Continue

Are you in community?
My wife and I are involved in several different ‘communities’. There’s the community of our church. There’s the community of our family. There’s the cross-cultural Latino community that we work with. There’s an online community that we interact with every day.
How are you spending your time? We’re already in the second month of the year, and many of you have had some very exciting goals set to go after. So, where are those goals now and are you still pursuing them?
It’s still early, so if you’ve given up on them, try to use this write-up to help motivate you and get you back on track.
Think about this…
If you are still sitting on a plan, or an idea, and haven’t moved then perhaps the…Continue
“You run our family like a business,” my son told me yesterday. He gestured to the large white board we have mounted on the wall.
It was a compliment to me but I know he wasn’t saying it with appreciation.
But it’s part of effort to keep disorganization and Shiny Object Syndrome (SOS) at bay in our home. So here’s just a few things I’ve found to help manage ADD in our home.
Use a white board. I use it to write down goals and their rewards. Hubby Jay…Continue

I will have to admit, I like Paula Abdul. She is very talented and hard working.
Saw her last night on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno. She described her technique for becoming a Laker dancer. She was passed over more than once. When asked how many times she was rejected by the L.A. Lakers, she said "No is always the beginning of negotiation". Incredible way to look at things.
I know I have heard talks about getting past a "No" response when you are asking. I…Continue
