Becoming Our Best

In 1998 a number of friends and clients suggested
that I write down some of my thoughts about various topics.
Since we don't live forever, that seemed like a good moment to get started.
The concept was that this is an opportunity for an ongoing conversation
between people who are climbing the wonderful mountain of life.
My part is to pass along what I know about topics like life itself, health,
relationships, leadership, communication, coaching and conflict resolution.
The reader's part is to use the information in the best way possible;
and respond to me when the feeling moves you.
