Description of Story: People like to talk. And some people like to talk like it's going out of style. They talk about the weather, the news, politics and all sorts of other stuff.

Greg Hickman Looks Can Be Deceiving. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: January 10, 2010.

Looks like you're not going to make it.

Greg Hickman Look Both Ways. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: January 2, 2010.

When it comes to living life to the fullest, it pays to look in all directions. After all, you never know where your next break or great idea will come from.

Description of Story: December 22, 2009.

It's been said that 90% of getting anything done is just getting started. However, that may actually be understating the case. In a world in desperate need of people willing to work, there's a desperate shortage of people willing to do exactly that. That's not to say people aren't willing to put in an appearance or go through the motions, because there are plenty of folks that fit that bill.

Rather than focusing on what the future has in store for them, these folks stay stuck in the past, unable to let go.
