Pyramids

We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them. Albert Einstein   I just returned from the AHA annual convention and our organization has many dedicated people who work very hard to keep everything working.  Love the tag line Connect, collaborate and create.  The most interesting thing about all [...]

Magic wand

After my post from last Friday this might seem a little harsh, but here goes and it is really a different topic. “How long will it take to train my horse” is the same as “how much is this going to cost me?”  The problem is you don’t know until you know.  I read (listened [...]

Power
