Troubleshooting Is A Lost Art (by Casey Mullis)

When we run in to trouble in life, we have a couple options. We can change direction so we do not have to deal with trouble. We can deal with trouble head on and beat it or it beat us. We can find an option that solves the trouble at hand, in a manner that we do not have to fight.

Where is your head? (by Casey Mullis)

Where is your head? Is it where corporate world tells you? What about Big Brother tells you? Get your head out of the cloud and take back control and ownership of your data.

What does and does not fit in a Box? (by Casey Mullis)

When you put stuff in a box, it is limited to the space of that box, is it not? We put all kinds of things in boxes like clothes, books, and dishes. What we try to put in boxes that may surprise you, is humans. People do not fit so well in a box. When we do this we put limitations on those people. Why would you want to put any limitations on a person? Some may do it because they are scared you are going to get their job. Others may do it out of vengeance. How about “Greed”, if one can keep another in a box then they can claim everything outside the box for their own. DO NOT let someone put you in a box! The only limitations you face are the ones you set upon yourself. All others in your life brought on by outside source(s), are not limitations but obstacles! Obstacle equals a thing that blocks one's way or prevents or hinders progress. You were built to over come these things!
