So Its been my kelly week this week.

I have to share that I would much rather be outside working in my yard than sitting on the computer.

Just to write this email, I had to force myself to sit down and just do it.

There something about being outdoors doing physical things that makes everyone in my household happy.

So lets make this quick.

Lesson of the Day:

Sharing our experiences and lessons learned helps the next generation.

Not everyone experiences the same thing.

Not everyone has the same training.

Not everyone has had a leader look out for them.

Every department has its problems and knuckleheads.

We can make it better.

Share what you know with those around you.

Put on drills.

Coach poor performance.

Make a positive impact.

Boy what a week it has been. It was a busy kelly week. And I learned some valuable lessons. I have decided to take on real estate as a side job. So I'm learning something new which makes me uncomfortable. It tends to also stress me out because there is not enough time in the day to learn everything. I've been reminded on the importance of being patient. A person can only do so much. I've learned that having this new goal has made me excited on overcoming these new obstacles. I've been...
