I think I am going to work on getting my private pilot’s license. This seems like it would be a pretty useful skill to have.

10 Hours Today and Counting
I forgot to do my blog post this morning and don’t have much energy left for it now as I have been in the office since 8 am this morning and even missed my nap today.
Where To Live Long Run
Laurel and I continue to debate about where would be best for us to live long term:

Not Enough Time
I always feel like I don’t have enough time to work on everything I need to get done. I really want to spend some time finishing up my copy management toolset in Scoretask, but have been bogged down in employee and client meetings and hundreds of emails. Even my usual sacred time, the weekends, has been busier and hasn’t given me as much time as I want to build my tool.… read more “Not Enough Time”
