gain psychological freedom by slowing and reflecting
Valuing your spirit requires you to connect to your spiritual journey and recognize the element of time. Specifically, you will need to rethink your approach to time in the context of how you care for yourself and how you manifest your spirituality at work.

turning obstacles into opportunities
Thank you for being patient with me as I finished my book Success under Stress, I've missed you!

the corn in King Tut's tomb
When archeologists found King Tut’s tomb in November of 1922, they scored the most amazing archeological find ever at that time.  Everything was left just as it was more than 3,000 years before in the boy king’s final resting place.  There was a lot of stuff in there–including Tut himself.  The thing that intrigues me more than anything else found in that tomb was the corn....
