We Need More Life

It is an incredible time right now for a profession that sometimes can be overlooked and undervalued by many, yet few can argue the positive impact from the expertise, products, services, and results produced by it. I have been biased about this profession for well over 50 years, even long before I ever knew it existed. I am forever indebted to my parents, grandparents, aunts, and uncles for the ritual that happened every spring as the rototillers, hoes, string lines for making rows, seed packages, seed potatoes, tomato plants of all varieties, onion sets and sweet corn were all assembled and positioned to be planted in the garden. At five years old, I lived on a gravel road in Northern, Ohio, where there were seven houses in a row all occupied by my parents, my mom's brothers and sisters, and their families.

Building Your Attitude

on 4/24/20 10:59 AM By | Jim Paluch, President, JP Horizons, Inc. | 0 Comments | Choices Attitude
A Zillion Choices I am always a little hesitant to write about attitude because so much has been written and spoken about it in the past. We all know its effect on our success or failure, contentment or discontentment, happiness or despair. We all know what attitude does, and yet there always seems to be some old idea that whips us back into shape with a quick attitude adjustment or something new that helps it all make sense, one more time.

As I write those two words, I think how they could be the beginning of numerous newsletters that would emphasize a variety of emotions, struggles, victories, frustrations, breakthroughs, and memories, all coming as a result of the challenging time we are traveling through. It could be a newsletter with the opening line something such as, "HOLD ON to happiness anywhere you can find it, and use it to build other positive emotions to keep you motivated."

No Easy Way Out

"Jim, don't talk to me about plans right now. Things are crazy!"  I would like all of us to stop for a moment and read that statement again . . . go ahead, we've got time. Before I go any further with this newsletter, I want to make a few disclaimers. The person who made this statement over the phone was not a client, never has been, and probably never will be. They do not read this newsletter, never have, and probably never will. If they did read this little intro, they would not recognize it as their own and, if they did, would probably want recognition for the great advice they gave me.
