Losing Weight Thanks to Diet Pills

A number of months ago, I wrote about how I was trying out some diet pills to see if I could lose weight.  Just like many people that work, I just didn't have time to work out, or go on a diet - I needed something that wouldn't affect my lifestyle.

Well, I am happy to say that so far, the pills have been working well.  I have lost about ten pounds so far, and I am feeling much better than I used to without having to change my lifestyle one bit.

I think I will keep taking them until the end of the year and then maybe see if I can work some exercise into my life somehow - the thought of taking pills all my life just doesn't really appeal to me.

Bad HDMI Cable

Even though I would like to think that each time that I go to the store that I would be guaranteed to buy something that works properly the first time, I know that it really won't work out like that.  In fact, when it comes to electronics, the chances of it working out like that are very unlikely.

That is exactly what happened to me today when I went to the store to buy an HDMI cable.  I needed one to hook up my second monitor to my computer as it didn't come with one in the box.

I bought the cable and headed home to hook it up, only to find out that the cable I purchased didn't work.  So, I headed back to the store to buy another one, but thankfully the second one worked perfectly.

Did I get mad?  No.  I realize that it wasn't the store's fault that the cable didn't work - sometimes these things just happen.

Buying the Best Golf Clubs

Over the years, I have had the opportunity to try many different golfing products.  You see, I worked at a golf club for many years and therefore had the opportunity to try out all the products that our pro shop sold.

One of my favorite brands of golfing products would have to be the line from Cobra golf.  They not only provide great value with their products, but I would have to say, that I love the price the best.  There is just something about getting professional quality clubs at a reasonable price.

In fact, I am going to go buy some more clubs today - the golf store here in town is having a sale right now.

One Night of Freedom

Ever since I became a parent six long years ago, I have had a lot of growing up to do.  Perhaps the biggest change for me was to realize that it wasn't just about me anymore - far from it.  In fact, that was perhaps the biggest change for me - the lack of free time.

But, my wife and I were able to take a moment out of our lives as parents and take a break last weekend.  We booked a hotel in las vegas and flew down there for the weekend.

Though it was short, it was a much needed break - I just can't wait for the next one.

Focusing on Performance in a Corporation

One of the biggest reasons that large corporations succeed where they do is because of their ability to manage their resources.  This can include everything from personnel to inventory, and by successfully utilizing these elements to the fullest, a corporation can become an earnings powerhouse.

Many companies take advantage of cpm software to keep track of their performance.  The software helps to dissect different aspects of the organization so that progress can be tracked effectively.

By focusing on performance within, a corporation can excel.  How is your company performing?
