Perfection

“This is perfect.” I have heard that a million times, heck I have said it a million times.

Bringing Focus

Six meetings today, schedule someone to fix the garage door, prepare information for the Board of Directors next week, start looking at colleges for my oldest, try to work in some time for exercise this week, work through my backlog of tasks, work with my team on the 2016 strategic plan and remember I have a dentist appointment on Thursday.
