First, my latest T. T. Mitchell Consulting Newsletter, Dealing With Grief, is available.

Back in March 2005, I introduced something that my friend Sue T hooked me onto. It was called the Reserve Index, which can be downloaded at the link above.

Basically, it's a personal survey you "should" take which will give you an idea of things you might want to achieve towards the goal of reaching your inner peace. The thing is, it's not as easy as it looks when you first start taking it. When I first took it in 2005 I could only check off 11 items out of 100. When I took it the second time and wrote about it back in 2006, I was up to 27 items, which felt pretty good. Unfortunately, taking it today, two years later, I'm back down to 18, which means I'm not progressing anymore, but at least I still have the list to look at.

Anyway, I hope all of you have the guts and take the opportunity of trying out this test for yourself to see where you are on the scale, and how you might improve yourselves, which is still my goal.
