How Much of Life Will You Exchange for It?

December 19, 2015   •   Posted under: Mind, Spirit, Career, Lifestyle

I suppose the first question to be answered is what the “it” is in the title. I can say that the it varies from person to person and is determined by our life circumstances, to some degree. Thoreau is quoted as saying that “The price of anything is the amount of life you exchange for it.”   No. I’m not hanging around on this rainy day reading Thoreau, but I do appreciate…

Second Chances

July 24, 2015   •   Posted under: Mind, Spirit, Career, Finances, Relationships

It is clearly past time to put my pinkies to the keyboard for 4060men. I see by the date of the last post that it has been over two years since I’ve written here. In fact, I feel a little bit like Neo from the Matrix when he enters the dingy dark room to meet Morpheus for the first time. Remember? Red pill or blue pill. Was definitely not an uplifting environment for a life-changing decision.…

Old and New Year’s Resolutions

December 29, 2010   •   Posted under: Mind, Spirit, Career, Finances, Lifestyle, Relationships

I guess there is something in the human psyche that views endings as distinctly different from beginnings.    Now that I’ve read what I just wrote, even I want to go ‘Well, duh!”  But hold on to your Victoria’s Secret catalog here a second!  Or as my buddy says, ‘before you get your panties in a bunch,’ give me a little room to work here.  …

Better Spent than Saved

December 02, 2010   •   Posted under: Mind, Spirit, Career, Lifestyle

I suppose when we were younger, statements like ‘Someday I'm gonna be rich’ or ‘I’m going to travel the world someday’ seemed realistic goals.    But at some point as we work our way through this life, we find that we either really didn’t care all that much about such aspirations, or more likely, we simply conclude that these goals are less and less likely…

What is My Name

November 25, 2010   •   Posted under: Mind, Spirit, Career, Lifestyle

I suppose it seems a bit strange to be wondering what my name is.  I mean, my name is Kermit.    How hard can that be, for Pete’s sake.  Let’s not turn every little thing in life into a big deal.  My name is Kermit.  Not real complicated.  But hold on a second.  I’m not talking strictly here about what people call me, or the name on my birth…
