    "After almost 34 years in our Shaker Heights home and untold contractors, painting companies, and individual freelancers, we have finally found the Reilly expertise, innovation and follow through that make your mother-in-law's testimonials sound modest. Your team was outstanding. The next time I need an out-of-the-ordinary project, I will be sure to call both you for repeated work and your mother-in-law for new recommendations."

  • Gretchin Rubin On Staying Happy

    [caption id="attachment_3536" align="alignleft" width="402" caption="Staying Happy"]rubin[/caption]


    Gretchen Rubin, a writer for Forbes, has started the Happiness Project, where she gives advice on staying happy. I know this may seem a little cheesy, but her articles have a lot of great tips and advice. Take it away Gretchin:

    For many people, making and keeping friends is one of the most important (and challenging) elements of their happiness project, and being part of a group is a terrific way to make new friends, deepen existing friendships, have fun, create a sense of belonging, and spend time thinking about a subject that interests you. (For tips on making friends, read here and here). It sounds odd to talk about “efficiency” in the context of friendship, but belonging to a group is a very efficient way to build and strengthen relationships — especially if you have a hard time making time for friendships.

    I’ve heard from lots of people who want to launch or join groups for people doing happiness projects together, so I created this (free) starter kit, to help folks get the ball rolling. If you want a copy, email me at gretchenrubin1 at gretchenrubin dot com.

    People all over the world have started groups for people doing happiness projects together. These groups swap ideas, build enthusiasm, give encouragement, and – perhaps most important – hold each other accountable. (Think AA and Weight Watchers.) Some of these groups consist of people who know each other already — colleagues at a law firm, a sorority, a church study group, members of a family — and some of these groups consist of strangers who come together just to work on happiness projects.
