"Many a false step was made by standing still." - Fortune Cookie

Time is my most prized and precious commodity - and I strive to protect it vehemently.

I often analyze the minutes that make up my day and scrutinize the value of my activities. Am I investing in what matters most? Am I living life fully? Am I giving my heart, soul, and mind appropriately?

These questions are probably what prompt me to not watch TV and to not attend home sales parties (think: gold canyon, mary kay, etc.). These same questions remind me to play with my baby, to hang out with my husband, and to write thank you notes.

I've been browsing through Timothy Ferriss' The 4-Hour Workweek over the past few days. Although I don't necessarily agree with his entire outlook on life, his experiences intrigue me because he has managed to pack so much into his not-yet-thirty years. He's traveled the world, started several companies, danced tango professionally, published a NY Times best seller, and learned multiple languages. This "do it now" attitude speaks to me. I totally understand that passion, that spark, that fire - and I want to embrace it.

I think everything published made a bunch of
sense. But, think about this, suppose you were to write a killer headline?

I am not suggesting your content is not good, but suppose you added a post title that
makes people want more? I mean ""Many a false step was made by standing still.
" - Fortune Cookie" is a little plain. You ought to look at Yahoo's home page and watch how they create news headlines to grab viewers to open the links. You might add a video or a related picture or two to grab people excited about what you've written.
In my opinion, it might bring your blog a little livelier.

First off I want to say great blog! I had a quick question that I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your head before writing. I have had a tough time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out there. I do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or tips? Cheers!
