1. Welcome Notes

I am on the road home today and will be back in my office
on Monday, August 28th. I’d love to hear how you’ve
enjoyed these 3 “vacation” CTJ’s. A bit lighter, a bit

I’m betting that putting fun in each day for the next week
will establish a pattern – and a fun pattern at that – that
you will continue one day at a time for as many days as
there are.
