Opening Weekend, a Split Decision for Rutherford County

Week one of high school football is in the books and things went halfway  right for Rutherford County on the gridiron.

R-S Central (1-0) took the biggest win of the week, finally getting over the McDowell dry spell with a 26-15 road win. The Hilltoppers had an inauspicious start, but flipped the script by dominating the second half.

Do you multi-task at work?

    Monday is Labor Day in the U.S., that day when you celebrate the American worker by taking a day off.  Workers, not just American ones either, are often rewarded for multi-tasking, i.e., doing more than one thing at a time.  Supposedly you’re more productive when you keep several things going on at once.

    Lately, I’ve been wondering how true that is.  Think about it for a minute: the football receiver who drops a pass or lets the ball go right between his hands oftentimes tries to run without the ball, turns his head to look up field before he catches the ball in anticipation of what’s ahead.  But it really doesn’t matter what’s ahead since he didn’t catch the ball.  His coach tells him to focus on the fundamentals—catch the ball, then run; do one thing at a time.

    That’s great coaching to Live Positive, too—focus on the fundamentals.  When you do one thing at a time you concentrate more deeply, experience less stress and more success.  So Live Positive and Work Positive by paying attention to what’s most important, and do one thing at a time.

Outdoor Truths
    Seventeen and one-half miles. That’s the mark. That’s when the hill starts. That’s when I go from a comfortable ride to a heart-pumping, sweat-drenching climb. It only lasts about a half of a mile but that one-half of a mile seems to stay in the forefront of my mind until I begin my coast down the other side. Yesterday I began to notice this truth and was amazed. I had pedaled up this hill many, many times. It’s hard but not too hard. It hurts but not that bad. But for some reason, I just kept looking at my watch and counting down the miles until the hill was in front of me. I struggled to enjoy the first seventeen miles. I struggled to keep my eyes and mind on the beautiful surroundings. Instead I fought a mental battle that had buried itself from a previous time when that hill was much more difficult.
