Home transformation pictures; Make an hour every day YOUR hour.

I’ve been getting a few emails from people who would like me to post some pictures of all the house projects I’ve been working on. I’m not going to post anything yet, but once all the projects are completed I’m going to work on a detailed “house transformation” photo journal. I’ve taken a ton of “before” pictures, and will take a bunch of “after” pictures once all the projects are completed. We still have about another month of work ahead of us before that happens, so look for something in early to mid-June. I’ve owned my own home for 11 years now, and I’ve learned a lot along the way. Home ownership is expensive and can be a real pain in the ass, but it’s also a very rewarding experience. When I was younger I didn’t fully grasp the importance of maintaining and improving my house, but over the years I’ve come to realize that a well-maintained home is a great source of enjoyment and a huge financial asset. If I could give one piece of advice to new home owners, it would be “take care of your home!”

It’s interesting to note that one could substitute “body” for “home” in the above paragraph and it would work almost as well. Of course taking care of our bodies is more important than anything. Without good health, nothing else really matters, does it? That’s why is so sad to see how many people make health and fitness one of their lowest priorities. A few months ago my boss tried to Nextel me during my workout. When he couldn’t get me, he called a co-worker of mine and complained a bit. My response was simple: “I bust my butt for you, and I’m available pretty much any time you need me. I’m not going to apologize for taking 1 hour for myself each day to workout and maintain my health. That hour is mine. You should be thankful to have an employee who’s dedicated to remaining healthy and fit. If you have a problem with the 1 hour that I’ve claimed for myself, then I’ll move on.” It’s not been a problem since. 🙂

I’d better get going. Thanks for dropping by, enjoy your day!
