Lean and Simple and Easy!

Lean is something that helps me both at work and at home. For years I have been educating myself and learning so much. During my time with lean I have become a student of Paul Akers. He runs a company called FastCap and does lean videos. He has written a book called 2 Second Lean. Below is a link to a great podcast that gives a pretty good overview of 2 Second Lean. Enjoy!

A Challenging Year!





This has been a challenging year. In late 2013 I was diagnosed with a brain tumor called a Vestibular Schwannoma, or more commonly an Acoustic Neuroma. Thankfully the tumor was benign and treatable which was a tremendous relief. My surgery was in February of 2014 and after 13 hours under the knife the tumor was removed. This was the first time I had ever been a patient in a hospital so everything was new. What I hoped would be a short easy recovery turned out to be more of a challenge than I expected.


Over the next few weeks I will be sharing some things I learned from the experience. Even though it was a tough time there were some great lessons to be learned.
