Playing to win the game of life involves taking risks.   There are times, when we can create safe havens for ourselves, never daring to move out of our comfort zones.  These times might be followed by feelings of resentment and anger toward ourselves for playing it safe.  Then, a tug of war begins between staying safe and taking the risks. In my own life,

There Is Power In Presence

You never know how your presents will be wrapped... I’ve heard that Chip Kelly used to say to his players, "Be where your feet are.” Climbing Cadillac Mountain in Acadia National Park today, we set out for a hike, which is not a big deal.  How high can a mountain on the East Coast be?  I love hiking.  I have hiking shoes.  I’m covered in
