Day 26: Alignment, Huh?

Alignment. It has a word I have been hearing about a lot lately in my search for meaning…or rather my search to get more of what I “want” out of my life. Dictionary.com defines it has “arrangement in a straight line, or in correct or appropriate relative positions” or “a position of agreement or alliance.”Continue reading “Day 26: Alignment, Huh?”

Day 22: Does surrender make a difference in your career?

I wrote in my post yesterday about Eckhart Tolle’s perspective on presence in the your work or your career.

Day 21: What is a Meaningful Career?

I have become a pretty avid listener of Eckhart Tolle. He has some great advice that resonates with me, so perhaps it will resonate with you. Start with where you are. Accept the moment. Surrender.

Day 20: The Mind Needs Problems

I just went for a walk to break up the work day, lamenting all of the things that annoyed me about the day.

Day 18: Pizza and Ponders

Last night, I ate a lot of terrible pizza and cheesy bread. Pizza, even when bad, it’s good. This was kind of like that.

Day 14: Writing Outline? Just kidding!

Well, I was all set and primed to start my outline goal today…But, there is a gigantic problem. Actually, there are two problems, one of which is gigantic. The first problem, the small one, is that I don’t think I can attach an outline document here as though I were attaching a document to anContinue reading “Day 14: Writing Outline? Just kidding!”

Day 8: What is copywriting?

Copywriting is the creation of text surrounding the publicity, sales, or marketing of a product or service.

I found myself asking what exactly copywriting was after a conversation thatContinue reading “Day 8: What is copywriting?”
