Dog Forced to Sleep on the Couch

Ben and Blue were sleeping on my bed tonight and all was going well, until Ben started passing gas.

If you have never gotten a whiff of gas from a 120 pound Great Pyrenees, let me tell you it can curl the paint off the wall.  It smelled liked a sewage tank was leaking foul odors into the room.

I told Ben, “I love you boy, but you are going to have to sleep on the couch.”  I walked into the living room with Ben and made sure he was situated and ready to go back to sleep.

The poor dog looked so disgusted.  He was kicked off the bed and forced to sleep on the couch.  Life is hard sometimes.

During the Orange Conference, Craig Jutila lead a breakout session called, “Seven Habits of Emotionally Healthy Leaders.”

The presentation was interesting and funny at times.  I could relate to a lot of what Craig Jutila had to say, so I decide to share my notes on my blog.

Seven Habits of Emotionally Healthy Leaders by Craig Jutila:

  1.  Forgetfulness – Forget your past failures, forget negative comments, and forget your past successes
  2. Connectedness – Connect with people, connect with a champion that encourages you, connect with a friend that knows you and still loves you, and connect with a mentor that can speak truth into your life
  3. Allness – Be here now, be all here, and be present in the moment
  4. Lightheartedness – It’s ok to laugh and have fun
  5. Awareness – Be aware of your internal narrative, be socially aware, also be aware of the feelings, needs, behaviors, and concerns of other people
  6. Selectiveness – Be selective in what you do each day, because saying yes to the good things, may cause you to say no to the better things
  7. Adaptableness – Be willing to change and adapt, also shift your thinking from what will I lose to what will I gain
