How frustrating is it when you make a list, and as you capitalize the words, the whole one-page list disappears? Some people would take it as a sign. So do I.
I take it as a sign that I can do better. And, someone from somewhere looking over my shoulder understood that and just wanted to help me out.
I’m a 68-year-old guy who’s worked his entire life in the military and contract manufacturing, helping others. So I gripe and grumble. I did not curse, so I think I’m getting better.
I moved on to do this blog and will return to remake the checklist after I complete this. In the meantime, I only have one question to ask.
Once you have laid out a plan of action to build the best checklist in the world and it disappears, how will you recover from it?

A retired Air Force Master Sergeant, Mike used to lay in bed at night and worry about what would happen if his plant closed or found himself without a job. One day his plant closed. Rather than panic and hysteria (OK, maybe a little) Mike found himself carried away on the adventure of his life. Mike started with the best job he ever had working at Home Depot. He spent 8 years working with job seekers at a local workforce center, helping them to find employment. He then started his own company developing courses, writing books and urging others to follow their own paths into the future.
Mike holds a Master of Arts in Adult Education and Training and a Bachelor of Business Management, earned through the University of Phoenix and an AAS degree in Electronics Systems Technology from the Community College of the Air Force. Mike is a member of the Delta Mu Delta Business Honor Society.
