What the Most Successful People Do Before Breakfast: A Short Guide to Making Over Your Mornings–and Life (A Penguin Special from Portfolio) – I thought this was a fascinating and inspiring little ebook.

The Power of Telling Your Kids “Why” – this is a recent guest post of mine at Family Your Way. If we want our kids to take ownership of *what* we do, we need to help them own *why* they do it.
100 Things I want to teach my daughter – Beautiful words from Lisa-Jo.
I was thinking the other day that it would be fun for us all to take action together each week. Little Random Acts of Kindness that can change our perspective and bring smiles to others.
This Week’s Challenge: Call People by their Names.
There are few things we love more than the sound of our name. It’s not about vanity, it’s about being known and mattering to others. As you go throughout the week, I challenge you to call people by their names.
Here are a few ways we can be more intentional about calling people by their names:
- Say your children’s names and follow with encouragement rather than just instruction.
- If a worker has a name tag on, use it. Call your barista by their name. Say thank you, by name, to the grocery clerk.
- Thank someone, by name, on Twitter or Facebook.
Go throughout your week, using other people’s names as often as you can, as a simple way of showing love.
