The Appointment

More writing to do but this week I have an appointment with a couple of rivers, two puppies, four nieces and nephews, 3 kids and a few fish that will meet their demise on my pole and in my belly.

(Photo taken last summer. I must say traveling with 40 less pounds feels great.)

Question: if all you do is work, do you ever wonder why you seem to be less and less productive? It is because you are. Take time and make time.

The best appointments don't cost much. Just listening to ambiance on my iPad helps but there is nothing like the real thing.

Friend, make THE Appointment. When you have burnt out it is too late.
