What Can I Do Today? #868 

Sometimes, I look at the state of our world and I feel helpless to change it.  When I see some of the realities we’re dealing with and recognize that basic safety and the opportunity to love freely are compromised disproportionately for many, specifically here in the US, I seek wisdom from history. I also recognize… View Article

Peaceful and Peace Full #751 

There is something wonderful about snowfall.  As I sit enjoying the steady drift of fragile crystals gently floating to the ground, delicately covering the bare spaces with a white dusting, I am peace full.   Filled with peace in a way Spring, Summer and Fall cannot offer. Stillness inside and outside, no sound, simply peaceful and… View Article

Think About It #741 

What will this cost me?  I was facilitating a session with a team and this gem of a question dropped from one of the wise leaders on the team.  She was explaining how taxing it can be when people react with high emotion to situations at work. Even when the message is spot on, you… View Article

Pressure Wash Yourself To Clarity #592

Who knew pressure washing would be gratifying? I sure didn’t.  At least not until I tried it.  Sometimes doing a task which is simple, mundane and productive is just what the doctor ordered.   Though I ended covered in dirt, pressure washing gave me the clarity on many things happening in my business and life.   When your thinking gets stuck, take to… View Article

We Don’t Need Leaders When It’s Easy #427

We’ve been watching “The Last Dance” on Netflix. If you’re a Michael Jordan fan, it’s a great watch.  I was struck with an impactful quote at the end of the seventh hour (there are a total of ten hours filmed, broken into one-hour segments for those who may not have seen this yet). Jordan says “Winning has a price…. View Article

Gandhi Gets It #421

Gandhi said there are 7 blunders of the world that lead to violence. They are:  Wealth without work.  Pleasure without conscience.  Knowledge without character.  Commerce without morality.  Science without humanity.  Worship without sacrifice.  Politics without principle.  I had this quote from a seminar I attended years ago. It was one of the slides shared and thankfully… View Article
