It seems as if fewer and fewer people create time to reflect these days."White space" on the calendar is a luxury, not a norm.  As I meandered through the Columbia Sportswear store in the Portland Airport last Wednesday, I stumbled across a new product that not only excited me, but serves as a perfect tool for people in search of a balanced life.

For all of you who are feeling tired, overwhelmed, and overweighted with too many commitments, I have found the perfect solutions to lighten your load.

C.K. Prahalad is one of those few global business luminaries who demonstrated a sincere willingness to support my new business initiatives. He lived and breathed innovation.

Last month, I met with Michel Kripalani, CEO of Oceanhouse Media in San Diego California. What an enlightening conversation!  I just had to share it with you.  His company offers three of the bestselling apps for the iPhone, and has developed more than 80 of them to date. (More on the way for the iPad).

Oceanhouse Media doesn’t just develop new apps for the iPhone and iPad–they truly model the traits of a wealthy company. …
