In late 2008, I finally decided to do something about my lifelong debt. As with most things that I become interested in, I immersed myself in this process somewhat obsessively. I read Dave Ramsey’s plan for becoming debt free. I read the Early Retirement Extreme blog. I read a bunch of blogs and books on … Continue reading "Follow The Money" ...

I am an organized guy. Or as my wife likes to say “obsessive compulsive”. I like to have things in order. I embrace minimalism because it makes it easy for me to know exactly what I have and where it is. When I exercise, I follow a system. When I make dinner, I take certain steps every … Continue reading "My Grocery List System vs. My Marriage" ...

Many years ago I read an article by the legendary Mike Royko where he listed all the jobs he’d worked before becoming a writer. I was fascinated with how many different jobs he had worked that had nothing to do with journalism. I’ll never forget one of them was stevedore. Although it was never my intention … Continue reading "Jobs That Took Me from Poor to Middle Class to Semi Retired" ...

Mentoring is the single most rewarding thing I ever did as a manager. A few years ago, I announced I was leaving a company where I had managed a large team. Over the next few weeks,  a number of people dropped by my office to wish me well. Each thanked me for mentoring them. Most … Continue reading "Thanking My Mentors" ...

I’ve been obsessed with time ever since I was a little kid and my father gave me his old Timex bullseye watch. I loved that watch and wore it everywhere! It displayed “normal hours”, military time and even counted the minutes. It’s hands also glowed in the dark (sort of).  I would place it under the … Continue reading "My Obsession with Tracking Time" ...

Some experts say the best way to give “constructive criticism” is to use the compliment sandwich. I disagree.   Urban Dictionary defines this best, Compliment Sandwich: When someone tries to ease the blow of a criticism by delivering it between two insincere compliments. I’ve been served both this and the half-compliment sandwich – aka the open-faced shit … Continue reading "The Compliment Sandwich is a Shit Sandwich" The post The Compliment Sandwich is ...
