Reflections for the Day - March 19, 2010
Friday, March 19, 2010      3 comments

So the SP calendar today recommends starting a journal, using it to track progress, record success and learn from mistakes. Frankly, that's what I use SP for - the website rather than a journal. I have all of my goals laid out. I know when I ... Read more
