The Bright Side of a Serious Situation
Linda shares a story about Joel Boyers and his fiancee, Melody Among. She had just earned her pilot’s license on August 21st. Her brother who lived in Waverly, Tennessee was trapped on a roof with his daughter. Could Boyers help? The floods killed 20 people that day. In many situations, helicopters cannot come into areas for a number of reasons, but Joel was cleared under these circumstances and with the help of Melody saved 17 people. Listen now as Linda connects how this story focuses on this scene. Being top-notch in your field means going beyond the normal routine; especially if it means saving lives or helping others.

Now scales help us know where we stand on pain and in different areas. Scale yourself between 1 and 5. 5 is the best possible. Being creative, planning, clutter habits at work or home, eating habits, sleeping, social media time, or staying connected with others can be evaluated. Enjoy Linda’s commentary.

Here are some of the questions. What inhibits me? Or what may help me to grow? Where are the props I need? Which people offer me the best feedback? Who are the ones that help me be creative? Who are the people that help me stay creative? What time of day am I the most inspired? Do I prefer ambient noise or silence? Does a computer help or hinder me when it comes to using my time well?
