GOLF LESSONS IN 105 DEGREES
As a recent newcomer to the game of golf, I just finished my second round of lessons. My Mom and I signed up for a 6-week clinic that included a round of 9-holes of golf after our lesson. We quickly found out why the clinic, which was held at a beautiful golf course, (Deer Ridge Golf in Brentwood, Ca) was so inexpensive.

Vision is the snapshot or still picture. It is best described using nouns, not verbs. We use the metaphor of the mountain. Vision is the ultimate and final destination.

Does Kindness Impact Your Bottom-Line?

Kindness... is it a lost art because the impact and benefits are not immediately visible? Are we so rushed, overly-busy and emotionally exhausted that we no longer have the mental bandwidth to consider an act of kindness? And if so, what is the lack of acts of kindness costing us personally and professionally?
