  • COLUMN: Clean up paper clutter

    Despite our best attempts at home organization, many of us are constantly bombarded with paper. Paper is the most common type of clutter. When you think about it, this is not really surprising considering the amount of junk mail, bills, coupons, completed schoolwork and publications that many of us have lying on tables or stuffed in drawers at our homes.

    You can get a handle on this type of clutter by following these tips:

  • TOUCHPOINTS: Don't make promises

    We should never make promises. Keeping a promise is the basic foundation for trust in any relationship.

    I believe we are all guilty of breaking a promise. Jesus said if you are a person of your word, you shouldn't need to strengthen your promise with a vow. Keeping your promises will establish your reputation as a person of your word.

     How many times have we said we would do something, and then not follow through?
