Opening remarks and comments about the Impossible Question.
Health and Wellness Wednesday
For almost two years, our lives have been frozen in time with the ongoing pandemic, but the irony is that we’ve continued to age. What if there was a way that we could get those two years back?
Health and wellness expert and author of the upcoming book, Younger You, Dr. Kara Fitzgerald explains simple yet effective changes to incorporate into your life that are scientifically proven to reduce your age, meaning you CAN actually age backwards and reclaim the past two years. She discusses ground-breaking new scientific research that proves a combination of diet and lifestyle alone can influence gene expression and reverse the process of biological aging—just in time for the new year.

How Can We Leave the Pain of the Past Behind and Create New Beginnings
“As another year comes to a close, it’s a good time to reflect on and even evaluate what has happened,” Dr. Brad says. “It’s also a good time to look ahead and determine what you’ll want to create now to affect the future.” Try these steps:
Reflect & Evaluate: Before making your New Year’s resolutions this year, think for a moment. What is it that’ll bring about the changes in your life that you really want to see? What actions will you need to take? Do you have a vision of what you want? Do you have strong enough reasons to work for your goal, to sustain your effort when you feel tempted to give up? How will you feel about yourself and what you have accomplished if you make your dream a reality? How might you feel if you don’t?
Journal & Visualize: Whatever your goals, identify them, write them down, and then visualize their creation. If you keep a goal journal, it will give you a place to keep track of things. Besides recording your goals, you might also record reasons for your goals and resolutions, how you might overcome possible challenges, and what happens as you work through the problems. Then as you progress, you can write what you discover about yourself, what you learn, how you change, and how you feel.
Ask Questions: If you find that you are setting the same weak goal year after year and you aren’t seeing your reality change, it might be helpful to look at things more closely. Questions to ask include: What are you missing? Is there a lack of commitment? A lack of excitement about the goal? Is there a lack of knowledge about what it’ll take? Are you making it enough of a priority, scheduling time for your goal? Do you have a good system and plan to help you to accomplish the necessary steps to achieving it? Is your plan divided into parts that you can realistically do? Do you seek the support that might be necessary to accomplish some of those steps?
Clear Trapped Emotions: Trapped Emotions, commonly known as emotional baggage, are unresolved negative feelings from difficult and traumatic experiences that can become lodged in our bodies, affecting our health and relationships. If you have been struggling for a while and feel stuck, it is very likely that you have Trapped Emotions to clear. Energy healing with The Emotion Code® and The Body Code™ can help you let go of those emotions and create space for new possibilities.
Clear a Path: The Emotion Code is a great tool to help you to allow the problems of the past to fall away and to move toward your potential. As you seek new opportunities in the year ahead, it can help your resolve Trapped Emotions that you may face from losses during the pandemic and ongoing struggles.
“New beginnings are wide open with the potential for whatever we can dream of wanting and have a hope of achieving,” Dr. Brad says.

Better.com CEO to take leave of absence after Zoom layoff disaster. Article Here.
Why are Some Leaders Oblivious to Their Negative Examples?
When will corporate CEOs learn their every action is under the microscope resulting in disproportionate impact, whether good or bad?
Not since Richard has written about Radio Shack laying off 400 employees by email in The Four-Letter Word that Builds Character in 2006 has a more tone-deaf personnel action occurred than the one by Better.com CEO Vishal Garg in December 2021.
Radio Shack (RS) released 400 employees by email in 2006.
- Poor leadership inflicted the following damages, and who knows how many more?
- How many affected employees would buy from RS again?
- How many affected employees would recommend friends buy from RS?
- How did the insensitive execution of the layoff affect remaining employees?
- What impact did the misstep have on the executive’s credibility?
- When RS need everyone positively contributing to the business, management chose:
- Expediency over empathy.
- Short-sightedness over strategic thinking
- Total failure to utilize long-proven successful business practices.
- Continued poor leadership resulted in a significant reduction in the size and success of the business. From 7,000 to about 500 franchised stores
Better.com fires 900 people on a Zoom conference call in 2021
- CEO reputation (my opinion he is insecure and his actions attempt to mask it)
- Layoff execution
- CEO met with remaining employees
- Three executives resigned quickly after call publication and blowback.
- CEO issued an apology for “how” he executed layoff a few days later.
- Better.com public offering was pulled from Q4 2021
What are the easy, practical lessons we can learn from these two events?
- Experience matters.
- We must learn from our mistakes.
- How one terminates, an employee is as important as the decision to do so itself.
- Positive motivators are much more effective in achieving company goals than negative ones.
- From entry-level to CEO, teamwork means every employee deserves equal respect and consideration.
- Confident leaders hire executives better than they are and listen to their advice.
- Leadership selection for boards of directors and investors is critical.

Go Home Biden!
The Gas Prices Trends of 2021 Are Not Behind Us
There is no reason why asking OPEC to increase energy production. The US produces cleaner energy yet we are going to foreign sources when they have a higher carbon intensity. It’s time to celebrate and elevate the US energy worker.
It’s a new year, but unfortunately, the gas prices trends of 2021 are not behind us. GasBuddy’s 2022 forecast shows that this year may bring more sharp increases in the price at the pump, with a national average of $4 per gallon possible by the spring.
This comes after prices rose from a low national average of under $2.25 at the start of 2021, to the highest Christmas gas prices ever recorded.
The reason is simple, there is not enough supply to meet America’s growing demand. The solution? Increase production to meet demand. The Biden Administration agrees, which is why they have continually (albeit unsuccessfully) begged OPEC+ to increase production – regardless of the fact that oil and gas produced by most OPEC+ nations is worse for the environment than oil and gas produced in the United States.
In another failed attempt to lower gas prices, the Administration began releasing 50 million barrels from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve (SPR) last year, even though the President himself told the nation that tapping into the SPR would only temporarily cut the price of gas by about 18 cents per gallon.
Unfortunately, the Administration’s energy strategy has done everything but help lower gas prices and reduce this ongoing financial burden plaguing so many Americans.
