Wag the Dog is a film by Barry Levinson that was released in Dec. 1997, exactly 20 years ago. The great thing about old movies like this is you often recognize most of the cast.

Procrastinate on Purpose: 5 Permissions to Multiply Your Time

July 03, 2016 -Steve Hays


I have to admit that this book came in a while back and after reading the title I double-checked to see if it was addressed to me or the magazine. I’ve put off looking at it for a while, “purposely” of course, but now that I’ve looked at it I wanted to present it to TLC readers right away.  When I first scanned through it, I immediately saw he challenged the idea that time management was all about balance. I’ve always thought that balance might work for someone with lots of time and not a lot to do, so was with him on that. What about when you feel like there is always more to fit in than you can reasonably get to? Perhaps I found someone who was going to find me more time without forcing me to balance. (... read more)

How to Let Go of the World and Love All the Things Climate Can’t Change

July 01, 2016 -Steve Hays


Film director and environmental activist Josh Fox has released a new film that explores exactly what he says in the title of the film. “Can a person stop a wave,” he asks rhetorically. “Can we stand on the shore and stop a wave from crashing?” Well, what can we do? What is important?

“What are the things,” he asks in the movie, “that climate change can’t change? What are those parts of us that are so deep that no storm can take them away?” (... read more)
