    The last fifteen minutes of the day, head on the pillow, good nights stated and its just you the pillow and soon slumber. This is that time when doubt can creep in or when sugar plumbs dance.

    Within leadership you always are looking into the fog of future outcomes. Doubt or healthy doubt is a good thing. It refines our thoughts, energy and shows us the path of least resistance.

    Our market is changing constantly. New ideas and budgets tend to redo the landscape every three years. Doubt coupled with courage to wade into the fog is the only answer we have.

    Doubt and avoidance is the key to failure.

    Great thoughts.

    When two people of different backgrounds fell in love, they were discouraged by being asked, “A bird may love a fish but where would they build a home together?” (Joseph Stein) I'm glad the bird and the fish were not discouraged to find a way. See the results in this video. Thanks @Randall Burns for the link on your buzz,Tales from Paradise Pt. 4.
