100 Good Ideas


I write a lot of ideas on this blog. I’ve written over 300 articles and dozens more for other sites. Two e-books and a software program, there are even more ideas I’ve tried to give some depth to.

This list doesn’t just represent links to posts, but it gives a broad stroke of my entire philosophy towards life, who I am and what this site is about. Even if you can’t possibly read the hundreds of thousands of words of text contained in these posts, hopefully the ideas should give you a glimpse of what to expect in the future and what has been written in the past.

Debate is fine, flaming is not. Pretend that this comment form is a discussion taking place in my house. That means I enjoy constructive criticism and polite suggestions. Personal attacks, insults and all-purpose nastiness will be removed especially if it is directed at other readers.
