1,488

Going back to work
Requires more than just distance
A mental journey

Sunday, December 30, 2012

1,487

Let’s take down the tree
It is never as much fun
But more important

Saturday, December 29, 2012

1,486

Things you’re ashamed of
Will always be around you
For others to see

Friday, December 28, 2012

1,485

Won’t you hire me?
I write real good and avoid
All apostrophes

Thursday, December 27, 2012

1,484

Three days of Christmas
Will mean more presents for them
And less time for me

Wednesday, December 26, 2012

1,483

A day for fun is
Often a day for fighting
We’re dysfunctional

Tuesday, December 25, 2012

1,482

Another year ends
Don’t forget to look forward
While you’re looking back

Monday, December 24, 2012

1,481

Time to clean the room
And get rid of ten percent
There is no debate

Sunday, December 23, 2012

1,480

Some folks take a break
And others slow down. For me
It’s full speed ahead

Saturday, December 22, 2012

1,479

Day before Christmas
And there’s just as much email
As any old day

Friday, December 21, 2012

1,478

They retweet your stuff
And adopt your prescription
But will they pay you?

Thursday, December 20, 2012

1,477

Eleven years old
Never would have imagined
That this day would come

Wednesday, December 19, 2012

1,476

You are who you think
That is a revealing fact
That’s both good and bad

Tuesday, December 18, 2012

1,475

Talk about yourself
When there’s nothing else to say
You’ve always got you

Monday, December 17, 2012

1,474

It’s not just my job
It is as much yours if not
Actually more

Sunday, December 16, 2012

1,473

Just throw it away
Why do we cling so tightly
To that which has served?

Saturday, December 15, 2012

1,472

I can’t talk to you
With them screaming behind you
Nor can I fix it

Friday, December 14, 2012

1,471

I’ll learn the guitar
And write all those great novels
In all my spare time

Thursday, December 13, 2012

1,470

Are these getting old?
Do I have some fresh ideas?
Do you see value?

Wednesday, December 12, 2012

1,469

They want fun and games
You want to get your work done
Let’s try to do both

Tuesday, December 11, 2012

1,468

He is getting good
Not just at feats of skills but
Controlling himself

Monday, December 10, 2012

1,467

Look but never touch
You will embarrass me or
Someone will get mad

Sunday, December 9, 2012

1,466

Did they let me win?
Sometimes being alone will
Make you think crazy

Saturday, December 8, 2012

1,465

One thing at a time
Only works if you do the
Most pressing thing first

Friday, December 7, 2012

1,464

Don’t sweat over it
First draft is never perfect
And time will bring change

Thursday, December 6, 2012

1,463

Tell them who you are
The beginning and middle
They will write the end

Wednesday, December 5, 2012

1,462

Some folks deliver
And others will let you down
How will you respond?

Tuesday, December 4, 2012

1,461

I am not your boss
We serve on a team where I
Choose the direction

Monday, December 3, 2012

1,460

Dinner with old friends
Makes you feel young and aware
Of your long journey

Sunday, December 2, 2012

1,459

Don’t say what you think
Keep your spirit well contained
You’ll embarrass me

Saturday, December 1, 2012

1,458

Let it drop and see
If it shatters or bounces
You might be surprised

Friday, November 30, 2012

1,457

When you are angry
That is usually your cue
To be generous

Thursday, November 29, 2012

1,456

It will wake you up
When you finally realize
You can tell them no

Wednesday, November 28, 2012

1,455

Careful what you ask
Your problem may be deeper
Than it first appears

Tuesday, November 27, 2012

1,454

On holiday break
You should take a holiday
And enjoy your break

Monday, November 26, 2012

1,453

To serve and protect
Bygone mission replaced with
Restoring order

Sunday, November 25, 2012

1,452

It’s not math they love
Don’t mistake their excitement
It’s the computer

Saturday, November 24, 2012

1,451

Someday you’ll just stop
End the ritual and find
New ways of being

Friday, November 23, 2012

1,450

Support the things you
Believe make a difference for
The world you live in

Thursday, November 22, 2012

1,449

They say it’s bad, but
Sometimes, “Not my job,” is the
Only thing to say

Wednesday, November 21, 2012

1,448

When no one’s in charge
You do what you think is best
Not just for yourself

Tuesday, November 20, 2012

1,447

Hard to stand your ground
When you are the only one
Who feels like you do

Monday, November 19, 2012

1,446

Didn’t watch the game
And neither did my children
Did we miss something?

Sunday, November 18, 2012

1,445

Don’t shave on weekends
Makes me feel like someone else
Who doesn’t care as much

Saturday, November 17, 2012

1,444

Can you stop selling?
They don’t want to buy something
Just know who you are

Friday, November 16, 2012

1,443

Another meeting
Four on today’s calendar
I’ll just prep and talk

Thursday, November 15, 2012

1,442

Some days stagger forth
Others run at breakneck speed
Can’t they balance out?

Wednesday, November 14, 2012

1,441

I may be a bull
But at least I am aware
The china will break

Tuesday, November 13, 2012

1,440

The kids, they grow fast
Faster than you will believe
One day they’ll be gone

Monday, November 12, 2012

1,439

Going to a play
And then out for a nice meal
With both kids in tow

Sunday, November 11, 2012

1,438

Decide for yourself
You’re full of your own ideas
Keep your own counsel

Saturday, November 10, 2012

1,437

Spyware and malware
We’ve pretty much got them down
But what’s ransomware?

Friday, November 9, 2012

1,436

Your schedule us off
No sense trying to keep it
Do things that are new

Thursday, November 8, 2012

1,435

Another plane ride
Four more hours to think in an
Cramped and tiny chair

Wednesday, November 7, 2012

1,434

One book, two authors
One offers praise, one takes swipes
Still the word of God

Tuesday, November 6, 2012

1,433

When will they open?
November second or fifth?
Why can’t they decide?

Monday, November 5, 2012

1,432

You will say I lost
But I’m not playing the game
You may think I am

Sunday, November 4, 2012

1,431

The struggle of will
Is never fought with the head
Always with the heart

Saturday, November 3, 2012

1,430

What is his problem?
He’s singing and tapping toes
I think he’s happy

Friday, November 2, 2012

1,429

Just pick up the phone
Speak plainly and with respect
You’re all just people

Thursday, November 1, 2012

1,428

Pretending you know
Can be a dangerous ploy
But it often works

Wednesday, October 31, 2012

1,427

When he starts to cry
Help him see the long struggle
Not the task at hand

Tuesday, October 30, 2012

1,426

She’s now eight years old
Full of herself and her toys
One day it will change

Monday, October 29, 2012

1,425

Don’t know what to do
And don’t know if you can help
Can you just listen?

Sunday, October 28, 2012

1,424

Give them what they want
Never what they need. That’s how
Politicians think

Saturday, October 27, 2012

1,423

Hello and goodbye
You were here and now you’re gone
Our thoughts still remain

Friday, October 26, 2012

1,422

In order to fight
You need only know yourself
Know others to win

Thursday, October 25, 2012

1,421

What are they asking?
If you don’t stop to listen
You will never know

Wednesday, October 24, 2012

1,420

Watched all the debates
And never heard a question
That matters to me

Tuesday, October 23, 2012

1,419

Run and keep running
You will never catch those dreams
If you don’t run fast

Monday, October 22, 2012

1,418

There comes a time when
A man must stop pretending
And admit he’s wrong

Sunday, October 21, 2012

1,417

Stuck in the middle
Don’t understand either side
But need to translate

Saturday, October 20, 2012

1,416

It’s only failure
In the minds of those who hate
To you, you’re learning

Friday, October 19, 2012

1,415

Always more to do
Measure what you’ve accomplished
Not what’s left undone

Thursday, October 18, 2012

1,414

Time to change again
No need to plan when events
Conspire against you

Wednesday, October 17, 2012

1,413

Don’t have to be mean
But do have to be direct
There’s a job to do

Tuesday, October 16, 2012

1,412

Writing poetry
Out loud in the car with him
Brings me so much joy

Monday, October 15, 2012

1,411

Take a day for you
Do what you need to do
Refresh your spirit

Sunday, October 14, 2012

1,410

Another new phone
This one like a computer
Still need a memo pad

Saturday, October 13, 2012

1,409

What’s your commitment?
Do you care deeply about
The goals we have set?

Friday, October 12, 2012

1,408

They’ve got their ideas
All good but can’t all be done
You must make the choice

Thursday, October 11, 2012

1,407

When they misbehave
You wonder if they will change
Or always rebel

Wednesday, October 10, 2012

1,406

Change the order and
Change your stress level. Funny
How ordered we are

Tuesday, October 9, 2012

1,405

They will play outside
But only when they’re done with
The video games

Monday, October 8, 2012

1,404

Give them what they want
Or say what you want to say?
How can you do both?

Sunday, October 7, 2012

1,403

Run a little more
Five miles, now six, then seven
Sticker at thirteen

Saturday, October 6, 2012

1,402

I’m the tooth fairy
And your mom is Santa Claus
Let’s stop pretending

Friday, October 5, 2012

1,401

It’s not a debate
And it doesn’t matter—wow!
What a performance!

Thursday, October 4, 2012

1,400

A very big step
Happens when you’re least ready
Learn to deal with it

Wednesday, October 3, 2012

1,399

Thank you for your time
It’s been a delight to help
Now, give me my check

Tuesday, October 2, 2012

1,398

Tell them what to do
And then tell them what to think
Make sure they align

Monday, October 1, 2012

1,397

If you don’t know ask
If you can’t ask look it up
Never stop learning

Sunday, September 30, 2012

1,396

Need to write one more
Keep it going even if
Nothing else gets done

Saturday, September 29, 2012

1,395

Five hours in the car
And five hours in the office
Makes for a strange day

Friday, September 28, 2012

1,394

Another morning
Alone in a hotel room
Trying to connect

Thursday, September 27, 2012

1,393

I’ll make the coffee
Small ritual I enjoy
In a hectic day

Wednesday, September 26, 2012

1,392

They just keep growing
Whether you are there or not
Treasure each moment

Tuesday, September 25, 2012

1,391

Time to myself can
Be a blessing and a curse
What will I achieve?

Monday, September 24, 2012

1,390

Students and teachers
We know we’re one of the two
But why not be both?

Sunday, September 23, 2012

1,389

It’s time to focus
There’s so little of it you
Must steal what you can

Saturday, September 22, 2012

1,388

It all seems simple
Until the phone rings and you
Have to explain it

Friday, September 21, 2012

1,387

Patterns of thought lead
To patterns of behavior
Change the way you think

Thursday, September 20, 2012

1,386

Unavailable
Always this thing or that thing
Never what we need

Wednesday, September 19, 2012

1,385

Tell them what to do
And hold their feet to the fire
You’re the boss, ain’t you?

Tuesday, September 18, 2012

1,384

Look at the system
Never just a single piece
They’re all connected

Monday, September 17, 2012

1,383

We built it, thank you
With just our hard work and our
Government contracts

Sunday, September 16, 2012

1,382

Screaming and cheering
The whole neighborhood joins in
I close my window

Saturday, September 15, 2012

1,381

Before you complain
About not meeting your needs
Make sure you have asked

Friday, September 14, 2012

1,380

Go in and wing it
It’s scary but easier
When you have no choice

Thursday, September 13, 2012

1,379

A group of colleagues
Chosen by a matchmaker
To become good friends

Wednesday, September 12, 2012

1,378

What will you do when
There are no more hills to climb?
Nothing left to prove?

Tuesday, September 11, 2012

1,377

Notice how they talk
About God and Government
As if that’s our choice

Monday, September 10, 2012

1,376

Running for office
But don’t worry. My husband
Says it is okay

Sunday, September 9, 2012

1,375

Now he loves to learn
A new school and new teacher
That’s all he needed

Saturday, September 8, 2012

1,374

You can shield yourself
Or you can learn from others
How do you do both?

Friday, September 7, 2012

1,373

There’s simple and there’s
Over-simplification
Few know the diff'rence

Thursday, September 6, 2012

1,372

A confusing mess
Cannot be resolved just by
Working from within

Wednesday, September 5, 2012

1,371

You are paid to serve
But if you act their servant
You will not help them

Tuesday, September 4, 2012

1,370

Listen to them talk
Not to you but to their base
Then make up your mind

Monday, September 3, 2012

1,369

If you’re so human
Why is your robot sending
Emails I can’t stop?

Sunday, September 2, 2012

1,368

When you fight make sure
You disagree on something
That really matters

Saturday, September 1, 2012

1,367

Think about leaving
Sometimes it’s all you can do
To stop going mad

Friday, August 31, 2012

1,366

You write what you must
Not for others to read but
For you to grow up

Thursday, August 30, 2012

1,365

If you don’t tell them
They won’t know you are making
It up as you go

Wednesday, August 29, 2012

1,364

Waiting to begin
Worse than starting to fail
One you can correct

Tuesday, August 28, 2012

1,363

If you’re not happy
You must give your pain a voice
How else can it change?

Monday, August 27, 2012

1,362

If you can’t define
Your expectations, they won’t
Know how much they fail

Sunday, August 26, 2012

1,361

What do you reveal
About yourself when being
The person you are?

Saturday, August 25, 2012

1,360

Tell them what and why
Give them a chance to respond
Then adjust and move

Friday, August 24, 2012

1,359

Tough conversations
Get much easier when you
Forget you’re human

Thursday, August 23, 2012

1,358

Out for your birthday
With the people you love and
Watching those you hate

Wednesday, August 22, 2012

1,357

Write under pressure
Good or bad it won’t matter
You must fill the page

Tuesday, August 21, 2012

1,356

In order to think
You must stop what you’re doing
No one can do both

Monday, August 20, 2012

1,355

Up before the dawn
Drive through the dark of strange town
Join the hurried mass

Sunday, August 19, 2012

1,354

Don’t know what to say?
Try saying nothing instead
Of blathering on

Saturday, August 18, 2012

1,353

Up and all ready
Rather be at the airport
Than sitting at home

Friday, August 17, 2012

1,352

What do you protect?
With your thoughts and words and deeds?
Does it need your love?

Thursday, August 16, 2012

1,351

The kids are so spoiled
They have everything they want
And think it is earned

Wednesday, August 15, 2012

1,350

I have a system
It both binds my actions and
Liberates my mind

Tuesday, August 14, 2012

1,349

Back from vacation
Ease slowly into the pool
Or dive in deep end?

Monday, August 13, 2012

1,348

I’ll work when I can
And do whatever I must
Otherwise I’ll rest

Sunday, August 12, 2012

1,347

Personality
Tests don’t test you so much as
Who you think you are

Saturday, August 11, 2012

1,346

On vacation means
That I am on vacation
No work will get done

Friday, August 10, 2012

1,345

Like it or not there’s
Only so much I can do
And it won’t please all

Thursday, August 9, 2012

1,344

Work on the weekend
And work while on vacation
Because I want to

Wednesday, August 8, 2012

1,343

Family bike ride
More time prepping and cleaning
Than out on the trail

Tuesday, August 7, 2012

1,342

Make your decisions
In context of the long game
Do, listen, adjust

Monday, August 6, 2012

1,341

Not knowing what you’re
Doing is okay if you
Know where you’re going

Sunday, August 5, 2012

1,340

Two kinds of values
Those to which you aspire
And those you practice

Saturday, August 4, 2012

1,339

Give me your content
So I can make money and
Share nothing with you

Friday, August 3, 2012

1,338

Let me be the first
To congratulate you on
Your stunning success

Thursday, August 2, 2012

1,337

You are in control
Of nothing you think you are
And one thing you don’t

Wednesday, August 1, 2012

1,336

Stop looking outside
For the source of your struggle
It resides within

Tuesday, July 31, 2012

1,335

Get up early and
Get things done. It makes you feel
Much more productive

Monday, July 30, 2012

1,334

What was it I said
That made you think I meant that?
Will I ever know?

Sunday, July 29, 2012

1,333

Facilitation
Means creating the outcome
Not deciding it

Saturday, July 28, 2012

1,332

I play the long game
While they rush from square to square
I watch the whole board

Friday, July 27, 2012

1,331

Have some confidence
You are experienced and
Can offer wisdom

Thursday, July 26, 2012

1,330

You won’t get it done
No matter how hard you try
You won’t get it done

Wednesday, July 25, 2012

1,329

You live in the clouds
But they must stay on the ground
Or nothing gets done

Tuesday, July 24, 2012

1,328

Read, think, write and share
Believe it or not, that’s the
Path to expertise

Monday, July 23, 2012

1,327

Here’s the first question
Do they do what you tell them
Or what needs doing?

Sunday, July 22, 2012

1,326

They’re all pushing you
To do what they need doing
It’s time to push back

Saturday, July 21, 2012

1,325

Make your decision
Only when you know what’s right
Then deal with fall out

Friday, July 20, 2012

1,324

Think of the worst thing
Hold it firmly in your mind
Does that make it true?

Thursday, July 19, 2012

1,323

They love his picking
More, I think, than her singing
I will just listen

Wednesday, July 18, 2012

1,322

Stay above the fray
See the destination not
The frantic journey

Tuesday, July 17, 2012

1,321

People define love
In so many different ways
What they say and do

Monday, July 16, 2012

1,320

The beast will distract
Make you think you’re progressing
When you’re stuck in place

Sunday, July 15, 2012

1,319

Need to write haiku
Two each day or even more
Keep feeding the beast

Saturday, July 14, 2012

1,318

I don’t understand
Why people think the home team
Is always better

Friday, July 13, 2012

1,317

Ready for the test?
How much can you achieve just
By talking to them?

Thursday, July 12, 2012

1,316

Procrastination
Is an art not a science
Do it by yourself

Wednesday, July 11, 2012

1,315

Woke up with a migraine
The pill makes it a dull ache
Be top of my game

Tuesday, July 10, 2012

1,314

There’s what’s good for me
And there is what’s good for you
Not always the same

Monday, July 9, 2012

1,313

Thought we had a deal
I look the other way and
You bring cans of worms

Sunday, July 8, 2012

1,312

When you’re not looking
He grows in ways you don’t choose
You can’t control it

Saturday, July 7, 2012

1,311

Tell them what you think
But don’t tell them what to do
You must pull not push

Friday, July 6, 2012

1,310

Talking on the phone
Riding my bike and trying
To find a bathroom

Thursday, July 5, 2012

1,309

Everything will change
Slowly, right under your nose
Your life not your own

Wednesday, July 4, 2012

1,308

In repair or in
Transition? A key diff’rence
Not easily seen

Tuesday, July 3, 2012

1,307

I want to succeed
And don’t mind if I work hard
Can you just be fair?

Monday, July 2, 2012

1,306

Please take my advice
Always think before you act
But always do act

Sunday, July 1, 2012

1,305

Filled with confidence
I really am in control
And it just feels great

Saturday, June 30, 2012

1,304

A bunch of bad choices
What do you do when there’s no
Clear path to follow?

Friday, June 29, 2012

1,303

I’m rolling the dice
And taking a great big chance
It feels like the time

Thursday, June 28, 2012

1,302

Falling behind while
Charging ever forward is
A key to success

Wednesday, June 27, 2012

1,301

It’s all a puzzle
The pieces fit together
In multiple ways

Tuesday, June 26, 2012

1,300

It’s just plain messy
