November 22, 2022NewsWe all want to get things done and have more time to do what we want. One way to achieve that is by increasing the way you are productive. Here’s a thought on achieving greater productivity in any area. It’s the first and the biggest mountain to climb: Digital Gadgets. Yep, it’s that phone of yours. It can become another appendage to your mental state. It really is imperative that you make time to shut the cell phone down, not on mute, but OFF! Most people are unwilling to actually track how much time they use on the phone or using its apps etc. You would be startled. Most mobile phone users spend 3.5 to 5.4 hours on the phone, and they check their phones some 60 plus times a day. That accounts for tremendously lost productivity. Even while driving, 63 percent check their phones. Forget techniques, the only way to increase your productivity; personally or at work is not by doing 3-step methods or trying to trick yourself. It may work for a bit but doesn’t last. You must decide to cut back on things that eat up productive time. That’s the only way to achieve control. No gimmicks or pop psychology. You must make the decision. Summerfields Friendly Village: you want to talk productivity? It isn’t just the home designs and affordability. It isn’t just the lovely environment. There’s also a spacious clubhouse, Olympic size pool and variety of recreational opportunities such as golf courses, historical sites, and attractions right in the surrounding area. Plus, Historic Center City Philadelphia and Atlantic City are only a short drive away, as are boating and fishing along the famous New Jersey inland waterway. It’s quite a high productivity lifestyle. Make today productive by calling to meet us. 55 Village Pkwy, Williamstown, NJ 08094 (856) 885-1219 [...] Read more...
October 26, 2022Goings OnTurns out we love nicknames. They are casual and easy to remember. It’s as though we find it too taxing to call Nicholas, Nicholas. Nick or Nicky is smoother and faster to pass through the lips. In ancient times name were much more important than they are today, and the name usually meant something. We come up with nicknames for people not just to shorten the name but to represent them. Our football team had a linebacker called “Stump.” He was unmovable on the line. Nicknames are everywhere and all over people. • Charles: Chuck. • Joann: Joe. • Allison: Ali. • Robert: Bob. • Richard: Dick. • Michael: Mike. • Jennifer: Jenn • Emily: Emmy. • William: Will. • Rose: Ro. • Louis. Lou. Nicknames are more prevalent in the sports world, • Michael Jordan: Air Jordon. • Earvin Johnson: Magic. • Joe Frazier. Smokin Joe. • Florence Griffith-Joyner. Flo Jo. • Dale Ernhardt, Sr. The Intimidator. So, it seems to me that the most likely reason we nickname people is a way of showing appreciation and/or love. Of course, some nicknames seem outlandish. Elon Musk named his son, X Æ A-12 Musk. No one is quite sure how to pronounce it. Summerfields Friendly Village, All Age Community, a proven name with trust. Summerfields Friendly Village could easily gain the nickname that has something to do with,, “Freedom Variety.” Homeowners here enjoy freedom from high monthly costs and a variety of home designs. Here is another benefit. Instead of buying the land on which your home is sited, you lease your homesite. Generally speaking, you have the same rights of enjoyment on your leased site, and you’ll enjoy all the amenities, and services of a conventional adult community, with no upfront property costs. There’s no real estate taxes, or association fees. You simply pay an easy monthly land lease fee; simple. You must consider this benefit now.

September 14, 2022Ask the ExpertSorry Mt. Everest, you’re not the tallest. It’s the highest mountain, 29,029 feet, but not the tallest. The winner is Hawaii’s Mauna Kea Volcano at 33,476 feet. Lakes Exploding? Africa has volcanic gases rise to the lake surface like explosions. Below Lake Nyos sits a 950-mile chain of volcanoes. Gases came to the surface, an exploding 1.6 million tons of carbon-dioxide in a 160 feet high cloud. Watered down gold. Scientists estimate that the oceans contain 20 million tons of gold.

August 30, 2022Goings OnExpectation is a real force, an energy that one can use in life challenges and opportunities. It’s not magic, but rather a way to drive us toward something we want. When your mind locks in on expecting something you will find that you begin to set and achieve goals. Studies have shown that expectation is more than a thought or feeling, it triggers action on your part. It’s not a wish sandwich Years ago I heard someone make the statement; “The last thing you need is a wish sandwich. You have a slice of bread in your right hand and a slice of bread in your left hand, then wish you had something to put between them.” Expectation isn’t some magic formula that materializes what you want. You can “expect” all day, but without some effort you will keep on expecting. Expectation is form of accelerant, it keeps you going, pursuing, and finding. It’s really about determination which is what expectation ignites. Summerfields Friendly Village: Expectation Delivered. An all-age community of beautiful homes designed to take homeowners beyond the typical notion of home ownership. Spacious rooms, lovely, styled kitchens, and true low maintenance exteriors. All you need now is to expect to be here in person and see for yourself what home ownership can really do for your life. Summerfields Friendly Village is located just off the Black Horse Pike in Williamstown. Call to see how we can exceed your expectations. 255 Village Parkway, Williamstown, NJ 08094 856-885-1219 [...] Read more...
July 14, 2022Goings OnThey say that business, work, and life never get easier. That can be both true and false. The outside world is relatively the same all the time. There’s good times and bad times. The real key to what happens to us, at least for the most part, is our outlook, our attitude. Of course, one must be realistic. You cannot fix every challenge that life brings out. But overall, the best thing is to get through it relatively well mentally. Everything begins and ends with our state of mind. They say that you are what you eat. They also say you are what you think. And that is much more powerful. As time goes on one gains wisdom, which in practical terms means using knowledge very well for the right outcome. In other words, you become sharper based on gained experienced. That allows you to deal more effectively with those unexpected challenges in life. In other words, someone said it so powerfully, “We cannot change the wind, but we can adjust our sails.” Now that is a wonderful way to live and face what comes whether good or bad. The way we respond is going to have a lot to do with how situations go along and end. It really is our responsibility to be prepared to saddle our minds and direct our reactions. When this becomes a practice, life will seem simpler, because it is, because you are alert and in control. Summerfields Friendly Village –it’s always been sharper. If you build something to last and hold value you have to be sharper than the other guy, as they say. You’ll find Summerfields Friendly Village to be stunningly well-thought-out. Now isn’t that a welcome home! The homes are designed to support families of all sizes and ages. The homes include blinds and a drapery packages as standard features and many other options.

June 29, 2022NewsThere are more books and seminars on leading than one could consume. Proven leadership principles apply in all situations, whether leading a family, team, company and especially yourself.  There is a need for effective leaders. When I conducted management seminars, I taught on the 4 areas of leadership:   Leadership of self. Leadership of others. Leadership of things. Leadership of circumstances. It really isn’t effective leadership unless one can deal with all four. In terms of a few key basics, leaders should work at the following: State of mind. That is to say, your attitude. Are you fixed on adding or bringing value to what you are involved? Respect. There are, believe it or not, people around you who are smarter than you and may have insights that can bring improvement, but that means  moving your ego aside. Eliminate Excuses. There can always be some  unexpected hindrance and in some of those cases there may well be a reason for some delay or challenge, however there can never be an excuse. Always Learn. No matter how high you rise in any position, you haven’t “arrived,” because new challenges require new thinking and approaches. So, always be open to learn and grow. No Imposters. Don’t ever try to be someone you are not. The actress and singer, Judy garland said it right: “Don’t ever be a second rate someone else when you should be a first rate you.”   Accept Reality. Reality is not what you prefer it to be. It isn’t what you think it is. It isn’t what you expected. It is what actually is. Deal with that and enjoy success.   Summerfields Friendly Village, a Place of Leadership Someone had to step up and take the lead when people wanted something more than a mortgage and maintenance and high costs. The Temple Companies stepped into that leadership role and created a way to live well with low overhead. The idea was to provide a community that offered more than a house and picket fence. It is truly about a lifestyle for all ages. Frankly, all the photos and wording on the website are helpful, but there’s nothing like seeing it for yourself 255 Village Parkway, Williamstown, NJ 08094  856-885-1219 [...] Read more...
May 16, 2022NewsOne of our greatest and most popular myths is alive and well. The notion of an overnight wonder. If you read their bios, you will find that in almost every case these people worked and failed and had setbacks many times over. They didn’t have luck but they had passion. If anything, these folks are a source of inspiration to us. Colonel Sanders was in his mid-60’s when after over one thousand tries to sell his secret sauce finally succeeded. They propelled him to a world-wide franchise of fast food restaurants. Oprah Winfrey, one of the richest and most successful women in the world. She endured  a hard road to get there; from abuses, to being fired from TV, and was even told she was unfit to be on TV. Today she is at the top but it required years to get there. Seinfeld, the TV series is familiar with almost everyone. His first stand up appearance at a comedy club turned out to be a disaster and he walked off the stage. Macy’s Department Stores. R.H. Macy founded seven businesses that failed before Macy’s New York became iconic. Failures do not mean you are done and over. They are lessons that make you smarter and then success becomes a reality. Summerfields Friendly Village, proof of passion as reality. The Temple Companies preplanned this amazing community and in doing created a successful opportunity for all age  homeowners. As a land-lease community there’s no real estate taxes. Forget water bills or sewer fees to pay. Plus, manufactured homes are energy efficient and use less material without compromising a building’s structural integrity, so you support green initiatives.

April 26, 2022NewsScience has discovered that your brain houses some 100 billion neurons which can each potentially support as many as 100 thousand synaptic linkages with neighboring nerve cells. That means, theoretically, a quadrillion connections are possible– the mind is nothing short of astounding, staggering, and sobering. That little 3-pound grapefruit in your head can optimize, maximize and potentialize everything around it. This fact is often underutilized, underappreciated, and for the most part overlooked. Consider this; a little 3-pound brain directly affects a 6 trillion-ton planet” Earth that is!   I am convinced of this: Opportunity is a special way of seeing spiritually. Nothing happens in the human state unless it begins with a thought. A thought is an unexpressed word (or words) while words are expressed thoughts. Everything physical begins with the spiritual. Build a home—it begins as a blueprint which is translated to lumber, metal and nails and you have a physical object which derived its existence from the spiritual. The blueprint is not the building, it’s immaterial. The scientific community determined to investigate the unseen world; the elements that comprise the physical. In the 1860s  about 60 elements were catalogued. The Atomic Table of  Periodic Elements now covers over 100 material elements that make up everyone and everything. The question is what do you have your 100 billion neurons working on? Think about it—that’s what you and I have to work with, the single mightiest tool in this universe sitting atop your head.   Summerfields Friendly Village, formidable thinking Summerfields Friendly Village is an amazing idea that became reality. This all-age community offers design, amenities, low cost, low maintenance and low concerns because so much has been thought out. Here’s a short list. Take a look and then call us for a tour of your tomorrow. As a land-lease community you’ll have no real estate taxes. No water bills or sewer fees to pay. There are virtually no closing costs.

March 30, 2022Goings OnFor those of you who have, or are working in the marketplace, reaching for the impossible is a factor that quality companies strive for.  Creating better products, new technologies and services, making drastic improvements in order to advance success. But it will remain merely a concept until a transfer occurs. Superiors, subordinates, coworkers, and customers are all direct participants in, and responsible parties to, the ability of an organization to achieve. Company culture must apply dignity to its only true assets—their people. An ongoing, high level of dignity transfer is at the very heart of a business, flowing innovation, and productivity, throughout the organization. Dignity transfer between people brings miraculous results. How often through history have great achievers said, “I succeeded because you believed in me.” Belief in others begins with common respect. This is not merely top down. Workers must demonstrate dignity to those who supervise them: a reciprocal principle. The application of dignity achieves boundless results. Of course, this notion applies to relationships and home life as well. Each of us must give dignity to one another in order to develop meaningful relationships and strong families.   Summerfields  Friendly Village, built on dignity! The notion of dignity is one of the drivers behind the concept, design and construction of Summerfield’s Friendly Village in Williamstown, New Jersey. Beauty enhances dignity Dignity respects home quality with low maintenance and low overall costs. Living well is a key component and you’ll find it here. Plus, there’s no real estate taxes, or water bills. And those are just a few of the tremendous benefits. Now is the time to experience dignity in a physical place.

February 22, 2022Goings OnOver many years of working with CEOs, business owners, and executives in various businesses, I consistently found a recurring myth. When I ask about missed opportunities, the response  usually points toward external issues: Equipment problems System problems Inventory problems Technology problems And so on. In fact, there are no problems except people problems. All excellence and all mediocrity are manifest results of human interaction. People are untapped goldmines of brilliance. Life provides the setting, just as the jeweler does. The quality of the diamond is not up to the jeweler; he does not produce the diamond, but he does provide its setting to present its brilliant value. And “jeweler,” (metaphorically), is what a vision is about. So, why is vision critical: when people come to work with no sense of vision, they are merely doing a job. Vision provides a person, a business, a family with purpose. “There’s an important reason why I am doing this job or activity.” It makes all the difference between mediocrity and excellence and between just getting things done and doing something for a vital reason. Summerfields Friendly Village, the vision and the reality. Summerfields Friendly Village, all-age, in Williamstown, New Jersey offers a unique option that is beautiful in terms of design and savings.  Style, design, comfort, low maintenance and overhead and a wonderful neighborhood community. In fact, homebuyers save money by leasing the land that their home sits on, and still own their home. We believe in the excellence our community offers and that will be evident when you visit.

January 21, 2022House to HomeThe Right Moves to Move I have a friend who is an executive with a large firm. He has moved 5 times in 8 years, both nationally and internationally. We had lunch before the holidays, and I asked him how he deals with the moves.  “Stay organized,” he said. I asked for details. Here are aa few sensible and practical ideas he shared. First and foremost, he keeps his most needed items accessible so if they are needed in the move, he can get to them. No one wants to dig through cartons to locate something that’s important. He also has a special carry bag he hand-carries for most critical items he needs close at hand. Next, he concerns himself with fragile items to be certain they are correctly packaged. There are some items like paintings and photographs that he ships himself in advance. Who thinks about that? Insurance! I never even thought about this, but when moving, my friend contacts his insurance agent. He ensures that his valuables are covered in case of damage while being moved. My friend ended the conversation by saying that is you get these few issues right; the rest is fairly easy. One of my take-aways was that we can use this line of thinking and preparing in  anything we do, it doesn’t have to be a physical move to another home. It’s just a basic way to be prepared and organized. Maybe it’s time to move to Summerfields Friendly Village Think about it. You could be living in a graceful and elegant community. You’ll find Summerfields Friendly Village just off the Black Horse Pike in Williamstown, New Jersey.

December 16, 2021House to HomeThere’s really something about the wintertime holidays. In a general sense, everyone can enjoy the lights, colors, and festive attitudes all around us. Here are a few holiday thoughts to brighten the expectations: Christmas Trees: There is a sense of excitement in going out to select a tree, whether it’s purchased, assembled, or cut down. You’re with people you care about and there’s always chestnuts roasting on an open fire. And oh, don’t forget the hot chocolate, and bring on the marshmallows. Lights: It’s hard not to smile and feel good while walking around and seeing all the sparkling lights and the glow they offer. Everything, including ornaments just seems to glisten more during this season. Snow: There are songs and poems about it: who doesn’t dream of a snow-white covering to put the finishing touch on the holiday. You can just feel it in the air, that unique sense of cold that tells you it’s about to snow. Snowmen: It makes you feel young again, thinking back to when the snowman you built might become “Frosty the Snowman.” Building snowmen is great fun, and often artistic. Sweaters: Over the years it’s become a new tradition: sweaters. But not just any sweaters, these put the “U” back in Ugly. Nothing like an awful, ugly sweater gathering to lighten things up. Presents: In reality, the holidays shouldn’t be about presents, but with the notion that giving is better than receiving, it all works out. Time: Friends and family are wonderful, and holidays help us gather and remember how fortunate we are to have people around us who love us. More than cheer at Summerfields Friendly Village It’s wonderful to be cheerful, but joy lasts much longer. As we close the year out all of us here at Summerfields Friendly Village would love to have you visit. And as importantly, we do wish you the very best of a joy-filled holiday season. 255 Village Parkway  Williamstown, NJ 08094    856-885-1219 [...] Read more...
November 8, 2021Goings OnSundays were always special days in my family. Being at my grandmother’s house provided amazing meals and wonderful visits. The aroma of tomato sauce cooking filled the air as a climbed the stairs to her apartment. Once inside, you would see strands of pasta hung over wooden racks, and tables tales, drying. I would quickly sneak a piece of bread to dip into the sauce. But somehow, she knew, “Now get out of there before you use up all the sauce,” she would say in broken English.   A Kitchen Full of Memories Kitchen is so much more than a place to prepare meals, it’s a gathering spot to talk, catch up and appreciate grandma’s work and love produced every Sunday. Great memories are created in the kitchen. Family traditions are passed on by generations, and the kitchen is usually the focal point. Family members could also learn a few tricks about cooking and preparation, and if you were luckily, grandma would eventually share her secret ingredients which made it all taste so unique. Younger children also had the chance to cook and have a sense that they contribute. They had fun, a lot of messiness and gained a sense of confidence. In some cases, as with me, one of my sons went on to become a chef. Being seated at her long table we enjoyed a feast for the senses. Yes, my friends, kitchen is an experience!     Kitchen is Theatre at Summerfields Friendly Village. Select from distinctively designed homes including kitchen designs to provide a gathering place for family, friends, and memories that last. Plus, you will enjoy financial savings with low maintenance exteriors, and the benefits of a land lease. There are so many ways to enjoy life at its finest.

October 26, 2021NewsIt’s easy to fall in love with the idea of something but not the something itself. I developed marketing programs for a client in the trade show business. I was developing a new copywriting platform to focus on value-difference for event promotions. During a lunch meeting with the manager, she began asking me questions about writing—really probing about it with great interest. I mentioned that I had no idea she was so interested in writing. Mean it or just think it? “Oh, I love writing,” she said, “it’s something I’m really interested in.” “That’s great,” I replied, “what kind of writing have you been working on?” She spoke at length about her love of writing and her hope to move into full time writing, but never answered my question. Then she asked, “Are there good opportunities to write for ad agencies?” “Yes, but tell me what kind of writing you’ve been doing?” She explained how busy she was and hadn’t written anything recent. I asked her to send me some of her past writing samples. I finally asked, “Have you ever actually written anything?” She responded,” I’m 8going to have to make time and get going. All I know is I want to be a writer more than anything.”   It can drain you   The occurrence is common. It can happen to any of us and often does. Falling in love with the idea of something but not the something itself is a time and resource drain. But its magnetism is strong. Loving the something means effort and commitment. Finally, loving the idea of something and not the something has sidetracked success more often than you might think. The idea may sound wonderful, but it’s not the language of reality.   Summerfields Friendly Village: The idea is Reality. You’ll find Summerfields Friendly Village to be a well-thought-out idea made reality. The homes are designed to support families of all sizes and ages. Summerfields Friendly Village homes include blinds and a drapery package as standard features and many other options.

September 23, 2021NewsWith all the things that are happening in the world and around us, the ability to believe in yourself is a key factor to your mental state and your overall well-being. The value of having faith in yourself and your abilities and experiences is significant but can be fogged in the face of turbulence. One of the very first things you might want to do is cut back on consumption of news. Many people have become depressed because of the constant feed of disturbing news. Therefore, strong self-belief with the faith to empower it will go a long way. That should not be confused with the fantasy that you can do anything. That myth has been perpetuated for centuries. You may have the greatest desire and the boldness of faith to become a Top Gun pilot. If you are a senior citizen there is absolutely no chance that you’ll be flying an F-22 military jet: so much for the myth. Believing in yourself is not magic nor is it speaking out affirmations into the air repeatedly. That will get you a sore throat. Self-belief is deep confidence in your abilities, expertise, desire, and commitment, and passion. It’s what’s inside The belief, the sense of knowing, that deep confidence of what you can accomplish through your talent and drive is where your pure energy rests. One of the most effective ways to assure your self-belief is to do an accounting of the successes you have been a part of and how they were able to make something good happen for others as well as yourself. Your history is your future and with that in mind be certain to stand strong against the array of difficulties that you may encounter. Tapping your potential will always take you beyond being your best.   Seeing is believing at Summerfields Friendly Village You’ll find Summerfields Friendly Village just off the Black Horse Pike in Williamstown, New Jersey.
