Safety First: Tips You Can Use Today!

I had a horrible nightmare last night. I was walking alone and was entering a tunnel. When I approached I could see the streetlight from the other side. Then, once in the tunnel, I lost sight of the light and I thought I was approaching a wall. I realized I was quickly being overtaken by a large individual who grabbed me and robbed me.

What I Learned About Productivity From Mt. Kilauea

What I Learned About Productivity From Mt. Kilauea

Recently, I was very fortunate to visit Volcanoes National Park and see first-hand the increasing activity in the caldera just prior to the recent eruptions and opening of new fissures.
Since seeing these sites in person and the updated footage on the evening news daily, the volcano is in my mind almost constantly.
I was awestruck by the volcano. What a large an area it covers. I watched the lava boiling near the vent - over 2000 degrees and shooting hot lava hundreds of feet in the air. It is remarkable to me that this volcano has been active for decades. Just as striking, there are other areas like the Kilauea Iki Crater a short distance away that are filled with cooled, solidified lava from eruptions in 1959. Quite a juxtaposition.
In a world where most days we hear numerous references about the awesomeness of this or that, let me say that when you use this word, you want to be referring to events like this one. I had many moments while in the park that moved me so deeply, the word awesome does not begin to convey those feelings.
What has all this do with business and productivity you ask?
