Lessons from some bottom of the bag pumpkin seeds 🌱

After munching through a bag of tasty trail mix, I got to the bottom of the bag.

Everything “big”, including walnuts, almonds, 🥜 and even dried fruit chunks, were gone.

Left were all the pumpkin seeds that had settled to the bottom. ⬇

Which got me thinking. 🤔

Why I Wrote My Book (and Why You Should Too)

Why I Wrote My Book (and Why You Should Too)

In July 2017, I published my first book, "Becoming the New Boss".

The book, a guide for folks transitioning into and within leadership, is the product of three plus years of effort, including settling on a topic, identifying a target audience, doing lots and lots of writing, testing my content online through regular leadership posts, finding an editor and publisher, and working through the complex, lengthy publishing process.

Without question, it was an exhilarating feeling. Not only am I proud of what I have achieved, but I am super excited to know that I can now share my ideas and experiences with so many others.

Learn to measure, measure, measure 📏

Learn to measure, measure, measure 📏

My eyes can deceive me quite a bit.

Over the past two months, I have embarked in some house-related projects. One was to redo our front walk. The other was to level the area underneath an over-ground pool.

Because my home 🏡 is on a hill, an optical illusion is created that makes flat surfaces appear sloped.

When I saw our completed walk, something just didn’t look right.

And after adding substantial top soil to one end of the pool 🤽 site to even things out and prevent water for building on one end, it still seemed uneven.

However, when I used a level 📐 (a tool that indicates how flat a surface is), I saw that the surface is in fact flat.
