Living in the Moment

By Duane Krip

Living in the moment can change the entire dynamic of your career, relationships and life as a whole. Have you noticed how much time you spend looking at what you are upset or disappointed about in the past or how much you think about what might or might not happen in the future? I know I am guilty of both of these habits. When we focus on either the past or the future we miss what is happening right here. Only in the here and now can we experience the juice of life.

Robinson Crusoe

By Duane Krip

To help alleviate the tedium of my daily commute I have been listening audio books on CD. Last week I spent my windshield time soaking in the hot sun on a tropical island as I immersed myself in the adventures of Robinson Crusoe.
