You can’t produce different results until you generate positive actions. People make things happen by taking clear and calculated steps. It’s easy to over-think your next move, to debate options too long, to linger with ideas, and to wait for ideal conditions. Some people spend their entire lives this way. You can prepare all day long, but if you never make it to the field and actually start using the skills you’ve acquired your chances of succeeding are slim to none. By Liz Wendling

Your home's hidden treasure
With today’s low interest rates and rebound in home prices, homeowners may have greater opportunity to borrow against their equity. Another notable advantage with a home equity line is making purchases with a HELOC debit card. Using the card enhances the ease of paying for unexpected and needed purchases by providing a type of rainy day fund. Nobody plans for the furnace to break in the middle of winter, but it does happen. There is also a flexibility factor – the home equity line is something that can be accessed over and over as long as the credit is available. By Eric Craine

 ColoradoBiz EXTRA       
If the Rockies are able to compete in the National League West this year, the team will have to pull off some serious Billy Beane magic by overachieving from a payroll standpoint. That’s not because the Rox are skinflints. The projected 2014 payroll – around $90 million – would land the team near the midpoint of MLB spenders; but because of what’s happening in Los Angeles.
