A Purist Mentality to Green
We need to develop a purist mentality to the environment.
That’s because if everyone wants to have a piece of the pie (the environment) then eventually there will be no pie left! At least not any that we can enjoy or future generations can enjoy.
Staircases of Life
One way to look at our lives is like climbing the staircase of a multi-storey building without using the elevators. No matter where you are on the stairs, if you have not reached the top, there is always one more tread to climb. And, unless you’ve reached the roof, there is always one more level to go. The effort you used to get to the present tread won’t help you to get to the next, or the next, and so on. Each time you must summon up new motivation, determination and strength to get from one tread to the other and from one level to the next.

The process […]
We all have useful and productive things to do with our time…right? Yet, we’re bombarded with information from all angles and from many sources that must be sifted through each day or simply ignored. Because of the finiteness of life, we must deliberate the way we allocate our precious time—call it time management or even […]
The Price of “Green”
In the Beginning…There was Green We need to be mindful of the fact that the world as we see it now is not the way it has always been! There have been significant and remarkable changes that have brought with them “the good and the bad.” You may choose to focus on the good, but there may […]
Is the Cup Half-full or Half-empty?
Is the cup “half-full” or “half-empty”? A debate that has raged on for years. This debate has been examined from many angles. We know the views of the optimist and pessimist, but others have also weighed in on the matter. The pessimist sees the cup has half-empty, while the optimist sees it as half-full—simple enough? […]
