Gratitude: Give More - Get More

Who cares about being grateful?

Isn’t thankfulness just for losers?

I tend to be a respectful, and thankful person, but some days these questions do come to mind. Whenever I can, I thank people… and have made an effort to provide a personal and sincere note of gratitude to those who were deserving of it, especially on my work-teams.

It does not take much. A…

The Lord Helps Those Who Help Themselves

I'm not an overly religious person but that title seemed to be best for what I wanted to discuss in this week's community post.

A comedian (whom I've since forgotten) once said, "There are two types of people in the world, those who like to sort things into two groups, and those that don't." With that in mind, I would like to say, there are two types of people in the world, those who like to read 'self-help' books and those that don't. I guess this week's post is directed…

A great place for lunch in Ottawa

Okay, it is not a 'best trip ever' or an amazing lifetime experience, only a great place to chill and have a lunch in Ottawa.

I was lucky enough to be traveling for work to our capital with a colleague who knows the Ottawa area fairly well.  He suggested we take our guests to the Dows Lake Pavilion which is at the base of Preston Street where it meets Queen Elizabeth…

Turning a Triangle into a Straight Line

(Communication in a broken family)
Editors Note:  This is my first blog ... ever! I apologize in advance that it turned into a novel.
In 2006 I became one of the unfortunate members of the broken family statistic. Well ok, it wasn't just me ... obviously it was my whole family unit. At the time I had two young boys, 7 and 10, as well as an older step-daughter who was 20 and well on her way as a young adult.

Answering the age-old question ... cat or dog?

I am a dog person. Not a cat person.  I never really could trust cats. Two events turned me off  of them early in life. First, when I was about 5 or 6 I was scratched by one that I tried to pet while it was perched on our fence. The second attitude shifting event was watching our neighbour's cat Snowball toy with a mouse until she killed and ate it. And there you have it...cats are cold blooded violent beasts. Later experiences of the needy mewling, leg rubbing and aloofness only tainted…

What? No Vacation?

You know that feeling. You have just been on vacation for a week, and the Sunday night jitters start hitting you. Or maybe, as you are driving back from the cottage or vacation spot, you start thinking about all the things awaiting your return - like 1,500 emails, and half a dozen blow-ups that took place while you were away.

Having just taken a week's vacation with my…

The Magic of Presence

I've been following Kamazooie for some time but haven't done more than comment. However, while relaxing on Canada Day, while my wife had to work ;-(, I came across this posting on "presence" that I thought I would share.

Whether you're a minister, a politician, a salesman or a customer service person, or even if you just want to be a likeable person, I think…
