Opinion

Listen To Life
Dr. Joey Faucette
Listen To Life

Is your light on?

   Do you remember the first jigsaw puzzle you tried to put together?  You probably sat down with a parent or older sibling or maybe even a grandparent and stared at all of those pieces.  You wondered to yourself, “How in the world are we going to get all of these tiny pieces to fit together and make that picture?”

   I mean, the task seemed impossible, didn’t it? 

   But then your friend or family member gave you the secret to putting together jigsaw puzzles:  Find all of the pieces with straight edges, the outside pieces, and put them in a pile.  Put them together first, the four sides to the puzzle, and then you can begin to fill in according to colors.

   It was like a light came on!  Rather than trying to figure out how to put a million pieces together all at once, you had a manageable task with insider information that gave you key to success.

   Today, when you’re overwhelmed by an enormous task, ask someone to show you one part that you can do immediately and well.  Watch the light come on for you as you listen to life and live positive and work positive today.

Outdoor Truths
Gary Miller
Outdoor Truths
    One of the tools of those who love the outdoors is a knife. There has always been something special about getting a new knife. I see that same satisfaction in my son. He owns several and is never unhappy when he receives another. It’s almost a rite of passage when a young man gets his first.
