A Prescription for the Whereisits

Hi, Mike b. here, I am building courses and books. To get you the best information, I study and learn new methods from many different sources. I also work with people as a life coach, helping them get hired. You are right if you think it takes some time to do all this.

I am experiencing an even more significant problem right now. I am suffering from the “Whereisits?”. I have had something like this before, only that was “Wherediditgoes.” I know I am printing things out and making booklets which I can eventually email to people. I just cannot find what I did with them. By the time I tear my office apart looking for them, I have no idea where anything else is.

So I am building a new course, it is how to arrange your office to never lose another thing you need and have already made.

I will send you starting pictures, day-to-day work details, and a course at the end you can get.

In the mean time, please follow along and maybe try a section or two that will help you.


Sometimes we complain that each day is like the one before it, and the one that will come next. Fortunately, this is true only If we allow it to be. It is up to us to make each day, hour, and minute what we want of it.

We can often find ourselves trapped as we do now with Covid-19. Covid-19 is deadly. Other trappings could be financial or weather-related. They could be caused by people around us or those dear to us.

Yet, we are in control. We control what we want to do and how we want to do it. We cannot control anyone else, nor can others control us. Whatever others think of us is none of our business.

If we want to change our days to better ventures or at least better than what we think we have now, we need to start with the person in the mirror. What is that person doing to make each day better? What organization or planning has the mirror person put into place to do what they want to do?

And yet, No one is an island. No one person lives completely alone. We are all inter-dependent, one upon the other.

If the person in our story has other people, people they care for, or care for them, where those other people ask for input? If the people do not wish to provide feedback, that’s up to them. At least they were offered a voice and choice.

Thank you for being with me today. I hope to be with you again tomorrow.

Time to Breathe

Have you ever had a day where you’ve been on the run from the very start and yet very little you planned to do was accomplished? That seems to be my world today. It goes with the old adage of ‘the hurrieder I go the behinder I get.’

This happens to many of us from time to time. There are some things you can do to mitigate the problem of too much to do in a small space of time, and although it won’t stop the need for immediate actions, it can definitely help. All we can do is work at staying on top of where we are in where we need to be.

One thing we could do is keep a good schedule which tells us what we need to do and when, and where we need to be and when. This sounds easy, just remember we live in an ever-changing world. Things happen, appointments change, something gets canceled, or an emergency comes up. The next thing you know your schedule has problems.

On top of this, we seem to have minds who throw us thoughts whether we want them or not. Our minds are almost always active, and quite often all this activity just lends itself to getting even more in the way of our work to get everything done throughout the day. I have learned something new this week, and I have to tell you about it because it’s so counter-intuitive.

You need to take 10 minutes to clear your mind and breathe. The technique is not hard, just find a quiet place where you won’t be disturbed for 10 minutes. Dim or turn off the lights, and just concentrate on breathing. Take 3 breaths where you breathe in all the way. You hold it for only a second, and you then breathe out all the way. Hold it for just a second, and breathe back in again. After 3 breaths are done, just start to breathe regularly. If thoughts try to come into your mind, do 3 more breaths. And then go back to breathing normally again.

Some people will do this for 20 minutes when they first get up in the morning.   And, some people will do it in the evening to clear their mind before they go to sleep. You have to figure out when the best time is for you to do this exercise.

This is a form of meditation. No chanting is involved, neither are there mantras. This is just you,  focusing in on your breathing and clearing your mind. People who do this regularly claim a host of benefits.  

Some benefits people find by doing this include feeling better, a clearer thought pattern, less interruption of thoughts by the brain,  and more stamina. I can understand many of these attributes because of the breathing that goes on. Quite often when we get riled, or anxious, or worried, we have a tendency to stop breathing or breathe very shallowly.  

I am not saying that this is an absolute cure for everything. And if you have medical issues, you should check this out with your physician first. What I am saying is that I find some good in it, and I am also saying nothing ventured nothing gained. Please remember, when trying something new, start with small increments, and then build to what is comfortable for you.

If you would like more information or care to discuss this please leave a comment.

Thank you for being with me today. I hope to be with you again tomorrow.
