Sunday SideLines: Rich Moments

Rich Moments

When it’s quiet, the stillness offers us more clarity.

And clarity helps us set goals.

And goals help us press-in with purpose.

And pressing-in with purpose helps us achieve our goals.

And achieving our goals allows us to meet needs.

And meeting needs is what it’s all about.

These are our rich moments.

Tell me about one of your rich moments meeting needs.

Sunday SideLines: Our Sound Bites


Have you ever thought about what kind of ‘sound bite’ would best represent your life?

Maybe it’s a catchy TV phrase.

Maybe it’s an unforgettable line from a famous speech.

Perhaps it's a cool youtube clip of your favorite song.

Maybe it’s a compelling scene from your favorite movie.

I had to think long and hard about mine.

It didn't click, until I heard Pharrell Williams' song: 'Happy'

And I found my sound bite 2:02 in!


How about you?

What's your particular sound bite?

Pastime Play

Ah yes, in the day to day…to play or not to play? This is the question. And I was ever so pleased that Jerry Reed used an old English proverb to get us thinking about it. His, ‘All Work and No Play…makes Jack (Jerry) a dull boy’ post was an important reminder that “…we all need diversions to keep life interesting and to keep us fresh.” So I stand in full agreement with Jerry that playing is a must do. Yep, pastime play is vital. And this reminder deserves a Debby Barnes Voice-Over Rah-Rah!

Admit it. We all tend to get a bit crazed about attending to task and ticking our various boxes. (Or is this just me?) And for those of us who are driven, playing is not a priority. We allow ourselves to get professionally caught-up in what we’re pressed to complete. And regardless of what it is, we are task oriented people that like to accomplish our tasks so we can move on to the next one. The problem is, some of us can easily tumble from one task into the other without taking a healthy break; like Jerry almost did.

Our warm-toned and talented colleague had been involved in some exciting long-form narration work when he realized he'd been holed-up inside his home studio for too long a stretch. This was enough to remind him of how precious life outside his studio was. And he needed to get out and play in it. After all, he couldn’t chance becoming the poster boy for an old English proverb, could he? Dull? Never let it be!

So he took his trusty camera outside to zero-in on everything from a Snowy Owl to a Sunrise at Silver Lake. And his healthy diversion proved to be a real pick-me-up. He has an eye for beauty, a real gift for capturing it and he also shares it with others. What a bonus. What a win-win!

We all needed your message, Jerry, because pastime playing is necessary and good. Rah-Rah! I'm off to ride my bike. 

What kind of pastime play do you allow yourself to indulge in?
