The Discipline of Discomfort

I just have to admit it. I’m a wuss. I love being comfy. Snuggling in warm blankets, drinking warm cocoa, sleeping in, curling up with a good book and some tea, doing what I want, when I want… I’m also spoiled.

Choose to Whine or Choose to Win.

I’m not really big on politics. I’m somewhat ignorant of the situation in the world – I admit.

A 4HWW Business

A few weeks ago I hinted that we were working on something that would enable us to meet our financial requirements in only 4 hours a week (or zero hours a week, depending on whose book you were reading!)   This is still part of our “Lifestyle Design” experiment as we work through Tim Ferriss’ book The 4-Hour Workweek. Today I reveal our plan!  The...
