I used to fly fairly often, but since I’ve changed careers, it’s been years. I flew frequently enough that I didn’t bother to listen to the schpiel at the beginning of the flight. “Blah blah blah… phone in airplane mode… blah blah blah… exit row…may be required to assist… blah blah blah…snacks available for purchase…blah… Continue reading “Secure YOUR Oxygen Mask First”
I had a nice (normal) title for this post. But, I made this mistake of discussing it with MY trainer. His title won out, obviously. Why?

My bestie does this annoying thing where he recommends a movie with lessons neatly tucked into them. He's good.

I get slapped in the face by a character who has to learn whatever it is he's been trying… Continue reading Phoenix Promise
