Tim Kolodziej: Five reasons why life really is like a banana boat ride
For those unaware, a banana boat ride is essentially tubing on steroids. A jet ski or speedboat pulls you around a lake and you do your best to go along for the ride. Instead of an inner tube, you kneel on a raft with handles.
Tim Kolodziej: Unleash the process during ‘dog days’ of summer
If you’re a young athlete, these really ARE the dog days for your workouts. You’re stuck in-between right now. Summer is on the decline, but you still have a few weeks to go before the fall seasons officially begin. So what should you do?
Tim Kolodziej: From son to father, a ‘Field of Dreams’ reunion
Next year will be 25 years since “Field of Dreams” appeared on the big screen. Although I had seen it just once, that was enough. It became one of my favorite movies, probably in the top five. Maybe even top three.
Tim Kolodziej: Are we ignoring our ‘best selves’ as we pursue success?
Do you make a to-do-list? I do. Even on the weekends. Yep, I am one task-oriented son of a gun. There is nothing more freeing than scratching an activity from my list. And there is nothing more weighty than a task I just can’t seem to erase.
Tim Kolodziej: We know what to do — we just don’t do it
Do you really believe that you can lose weight, grow in wisdom and knowledge, improve your performance and enhance your friendships? It’s really pretty simple, actually. It really is.
Tim Kolodziej: There’s a Hero in our home movies — and it isn’t me
So we were watching old home movies the other night. There was our daughter, Carly, bouncing around the house in her jammies. She had just finished a breakfast of “pan-a-cakes” and was about to head out to “gymagics” for some tumbling practice. Then there was our son, David, responding to questions about his typical day.
Tim Kolodziej: What if we fought dependency with ... dependency?
Had a deep, deep thought this morning. Here it is: We are all dependent. Every one of us. Every day. In pretty much every way.
Tim Kolodziej: It’s summer, so rise and grind before you shine
Every day we make deposits into our talent bank. The more we invest, the more we have to draw upon as our challenges loom larger. Do you want to become excellent at your sport or vocation or hobby? Then I’ve got just one word for you.
Tim Kolodziej: Yep, New Kids are STILL on the block — here’s why
Milli Vanilli. Tone Loc. Taylor Dayne. Tiffany. New Kids on the Block. OK, let’s play the old “Sesame Street” game: One of these things is not like the other. One of these things just doesn’t belong. (With a concert photo gallery.)
Tim Kolodziej: For the Class of 2013, there’s no looking back — promise?
Congratulations, Class of 2013! You made it. Your last history lesson is history. Your last final — final. The unsure children who once needed help to climb the school bus steps will now stride confidently across the stage to receive their diplomas.
