I'm okay with keeping things simple. There's been a shift in my life over the past few years from being and doing complexity to being and doing simply. Maybe Solomon was right, there is nothing new under the sun.
Life is not meant to be analyzed to death. I've spend my fair share of time pondering and contemplating things. I want to get on with it. Say what I have to say and move on. This blog is certainly a part of that. I don't propose to be a published author or great writer, although per Seth Godin, I guess I am published because I have this blog.
I simply want to find simple ways to influence, inspire and encourage others in their live and leadership. I want to find ways to point people the right way, using my thoughts, quips, experiences and story to act as guideposts.
Along that line, I've been doing some research on blogging and in the past day have found some great resources.
