Have you ever said yes to something you really didn’t want to do? I have. I’ve said yes for several reasons. I didn’t want to disappoint the other person, so I said yes. Sometimes, I’ve felt so darn guilty that I caved in. At other times, I felt put on the spot and pushed in a corner. More times than not, I’ve regretted when I agreed to do something that I didn’t want to do. Then there were the times when I did have the courage to say no, but my response was so abrupt that it came off a

Here’s a post from my Facebook timeline. See if you can relate to it. I asked life, “Why are you so difficult?” Life smiled and said, “You people never appreciate easy things.” If you’re anything like me (and I suspect we’re alike in many ways), you may get busy doing a lot of activity but not seeing a lot of results. You know what I mean? There is a difference between ACTION and ACTIVITY. Activity will keep you spinning your wheels but not making any progress.

Do you realize a tiny shift can completely change the course of your journey?

To understand this, consider the boiling point of water. At 211 degrees, water is hot. At 212 degrees, just one degree more, it boils. And with boiling water, comes steam. And that steam can power a train. So, what made the difference? The one extra degree.

I’ve also read that one degree off in your calculation in sailing will take you in a whole new location. A one degree shift might seem insignificant, but it can transform your life.
