Productive Life….Guest Post for AWB

I just realized today as I was going through posts, that I wrote this guest post for AWB a year ago and I have never shared it on my blog.  How sad is that?

How sad is that?

What makes it worse is that this post has very special meaning to me, and I take great pride in writing it.  I hope you all enjoy.


***This post is dedicated to my father, James Scott Hutchins

How do you define a Productive Life?

Is it achieving all the goals you set for yourself?

Or is it just simply getting through another day?

Productive Life can be used to describe something that produces a positive result.

My father has every right to look at his life and be proud of the life he lived.

I have to choose whether what I do is going to affect me in a bigger way in order for me to have a Productive Life.
