S.U.M.O.

a Biblical thought...
Let us acknowledge the LORD; let us press on to acknowledge him. As surely as the sun rises, he will appear; he will come to us like the winter rains, like the spring rains that water the earth. (Hosea 6:3)

a Book thought...
It is possible, by 'changing the shape of your time' to create extra time for the children without necessarily losing any work time. (p68)
a Dave thought...
The fourth S.U.M.O. (Shut Up Move On) principle is ‘Remember The Beachball’ which explores the different factors that influence people’s perspective on life. One of those factors is our personality. This exercise will provide more insight into our personality type and how it may differ from that of the people we deal with on a regular basis.

If you want to give it a go http://www.thesumoguy.com/personstyleinto.php it only takes five minutes and if you are willing post your profile in the comments section. My profile is...

Cheerleader - 40 Carer - 30 Commander - 56 Thinker - 34

Commanders are results orientated people who thrive on challenges. Patience is not a virtue that they are blessed with naturally and they have a strong need to feel they are achieving things or making progress in situations. They can have a tendency to overlook the ‘people issues’ when a task needs to be completed and active listening is something they have to work on. Commanders tend to be decisive people who feel more at home with taking action than with lots of time taken up with discussion and debate. They make tough demands on themselves and expect others to meet their own high standards.

Just a thought.
