Aspire to Inspire

Mindfulness and positivity are prerequisites to personal and professional success! That’s why I have decided on a blog page that encourages you to “Aspire to Inspire.” Select a topic (or topics) that appeals to you and share your thoughts, experience, or wisdom.

We have all had unique experiences, troubling times, and soul-searching moments. How we channel and use those moments to improve ourselves builds character. Only then can we truly help and inspire others! These blogs inspire reflection, offer inspiration, and encourage self-improvement.

New skills (or learning) work best when you have taken care of YOU! I encourage you to join this journey with me by sharing YOUR experiences.

Good deeds happen in every society all over the world, but we rarely read or hear about them. What are people doing to help make their societies a better, safer, and kinder place? This should be front-page news! If good news was receiving the lion’s share of the print page or

Books versus Electronic Devices for Learning

Books versus Electronic Devices for Learning

Recent Headline: “Schools are increasingly replacing textbooks with hand-held tablets to sustain students’ interest and keep per-pupil costs down.” How does this compare with businesses’ usage of print versus tablet resources? Certainly both have their strong points. A tablet is easier to carry than a stack of books or paper printouts, and it’s easy to read in just about any setting, indoors or out. On the other hand,
