Start Here

My name is Art Clarke and this is where I post thoughts I have about lots of different topics. In general, most have to do with transparency and my learning how to live the life I’m trying to live. I’ve used it alot in business management, and am now applying it to my personal goals as well.


I encourage you to come back regularly for updates, leave comments (I read all and reply to most), or send me e-mail at art (at) if you prefer to not publically post.

Here’s a summary of the major posts so far:

    This is catholism all over again – you are made to feel guilty for being imperfect, and you dedicate your efforts to improving yourself so that you can be forgiven.

    How about accepting yourself for who you are, warts and all?
