The real winners in life are the people who look at every situation
with an expectation that they can make it work or make it better.

Some days, doing
THE BEST WE CAN
may still fall short of what
we would like to be able to do,
but life isn’t perfect–on any front–
and doing what we can with what we have
is the most we should expect
or anyone else.

Thanks to several hundred new Ripplers who joined us this week after attending time and stress management workshops on at S.P. Richards’ fantastic Las Vegas extravaganza, we are back over 15,000 subscribers! Woohoo!
After exploring many practical techniques, the major hurdle they face is returning home and IMPLEMENTING the strategies they were most excited about. I want this to be a reminder that ANY attempt at experimenting with one small improvement this week could have a big impact on their life and/or work.
I think all 15,000 of us should take a moment right now to close our eyes, take a deep breath, and promise ourselves to do THE BEST WE CAN this week and be proud of our best efforts!
