10 Days in May

In my last post, One of 250 Million, I wrote about my first impressions of Zig Ziglar and the peace of mind his words have brought me over the years and the second most impactful book I have ever read, See You At The Top. This post picks up about 8 and a half years later.

Ten Days in May 2000

A lot happened in the 10 days between May 10th and May 19th in the year 2000. Continue reading 10 Days in May

One of 250 Million

Let me introduce you to a friend of mine, Zig Ziglar. 

You may or may not know that name. You may have heard the name and never really knew anything about the man or the message he shared over the 40+ years he was sharing it. I hope I can help answer both of those questions as I tell you my Zig story. You may have heard he is a sales trainer, a self-help author, a goals trainer, an attitude changer, and positive attitude evangelist. All those descriptions are accurate but not complete when considered individually. Continue reading One of 250 Million

Still Peculiar…Still Here

Belated Happy New Year Greetings!

I hope your 2018 is off to a great start and it becomes your best year so far.

2017 was a slow one here at Peculiar Perspective. I only published 7 blog posts. As most of you probably know, I do this in my spare time and there didn’t seem to be much of that last year and my writing brain shut down from lack of use. I did get more reading done last year than previous years. I actually set a new high for me for the years I have been tracking this – since 2012 – and am on track to set another new all-time high in 2018. I expect to share more about that later. Reading does help with ideas for writing.

Still peculiar after all these years

I wanted to send out this short post to remind you I am still peculiar, I am still here and do plan to write more in 2018. My goal is to average 2 posts per month but that can fluctuate up or down based on many of the factors mentioned above and as 2018 unfolds.

Unsubscribe? I hope not

If you received this post via email, unless it was forwarded to you from a friend, at some time in the past you subscribed to this blog with your email address. I know everyone’s time is valuable and limited and don’t want to clutter your email inbox with another message you don’t want or have time to read. If you no longer want to receive emails when I publish a new post, use the Unsubscribe at the bottom of that email and let me know.


On the other hand, if you want to make sure you do see all the peculiar prose that escapes my head and ends up being published here, you need to make sure you are subscribed. You should see a popup asking you to do just that or if you are viewing this on your computer there is a subscription box in the left sidebar.

I do normally share on Facebook and Twitter as well but with all the changes always taking place on those platforms I never know who gets to see the posts and who doesn’t. So, if you normally do get to this blog from a Facebook or Twitter post or forwarded from a friend please sign up with your email address to make sure you don’t miss a thing in the coming year and beyond. You can always unsubscribe at any time. There is no long-term commitment required.

You never know what you may see here

I hope if you do read I will be able to share something that makes you laugh, makes you cry, makes you think, makes you reminisce or might even make you mad from time to time. I have found in doing this over the past almost 5 years now my perspective is often not as peculiar as I once thought it was. It often matches up with many of your thoughts, but I do have my peculiar, along with senior moments.

I love YOUR feedback

Well I said this was going to be a short post, so I need to stop rambling. As always, I love getting your feedback so if you have any please leave a comment below or send me an email and let me know what I am doing right, what I am doing wrong, what I can do better, what you agree with and what you disagree with.

Happy New Year!

Until next time…
