Searching for Answers


You know how sometimes you may be about ready to give up and someone gives you a word of encouragement that keeps you going? A big Thank You to Chris Brogan for writing the post about the Daily PlanIt at! Now the pressure is really on to keep coming up with ideas! I’m reminded of the moment in the movie “Joy Luck Club” when the mother tells the daughter, “I see you.” That’s an important part of love, to really see and be seen. I feel loved today!


I guess it’s time to come forth and share a little more information about me. I’m a pretty private person, but it is important to be your authentic self. Like many of us, I’ve been through some struggles in life, and have searched for answers along the way. I’ve learned from psychology and personal development as well being interested in goal setting and productivity.

I’m encouraged when Dr. Phil McGraw says that we do not have to be defined by our past. That leads us back to change, and it ain’t easy. But is the alternative working for you? A definition of insanity is doing the same thing and expecting different results. But so many times we keep trying anyway, because we don’t know any other way to do it. That’s why Steve Pavlina is so helpful as he focuses on awareness and choosing love over fear.

You know how sometimes you just happen on to the thing that you need to see or hear? When I was cruising at I discovered Phil Gerbyshak’s Make It Great site and he’s an incredibly positive person with awesome things to say! Now I need to re-title my article Top Ten Eleven Time and Life Management Blogs. 🙂 My hope is that you can find something that you need to see or hear on The Daily PlanIt.

I seek to create order from the chaos of complex information. Join me at the Daily PlanIt to gain insights, inspiration, and information to increase skills for a better life. I unlock the power of teaching reading with phonics in the pursuit of literacy at In my spare time I explore books and movies, often choosing titles available on both screen and page.

  1. Well lookie there. I put both you and Phil on and now you’ve connected. Woohoo!

    My name’s Chris Brogan and I’m one of six or so writers at You can usually tell my pieces from the other folks because either a.) I put a weird blurb at the bottom stating who I am, and cajoling you to come to my projects, or b.) I write in a weird style about weird things in a way that makes you wonder.

    Get in touch via the email you see in this reply. I have something to talk with you about. : )

    –Chris Brogan…

  2. BTW, “I see you” is the very first lesson in the introduction to the fieldbook of The Fifth Discipline, by Peter Senge. It’s a greeting for an African tribe. Instead of “hello,” they start with, “I see you.”

    I see you.

  3. Thanks to Chris Brogan for connecting the two of us. I’m glad you stopped by Make It Great, and hope you’ll come back again soon! I’ll be hanging out here for a while too!
