Trying to help isn’t always helpful

Sometimes the best thing you can do for a person is not to keep trying to help them, but to refer them to someone else who really can help.


I was going to write something about staying focused but I got distracted

It was a comment on my previous post that got me thinking about this. I do sometimes long for the days of the typewriter, when I could sit down and type something without a zillion other things vying for my … Continue reading
