So What? #365

Published on July 10, 2020 Written by

We all play different roles. Don’t assume your role should look like anyone else’s, it shouldn’t. When I’m in new territory, what I’ve noticed is I am willing to ask for help, admit what I don’t know, make mistakes, and be humble about the journey. The good news is that is where learning happens. The […]

What Conversation? #364

Published on July 9, 2020 Written by

That conversation you’re having, it’s a distraction.   What conversation?   The one you’re having almost constantly with yourself. (And the one you heard when asked “what conversation?” above.) Sometimes it’s so loud you’re not present for the people, conversations or life events as they’re happening.  Beyond that, you’re getting limited input, you’re focused inward and you’re missing opportunities.   If you’re wondering why people stop talking […]

Maybe It’s Okay #363

Maybe it’s okay.   Maybe it’s okay to speak up, to be unpopular, to interrupt the patterns, comments and systemic wrongs built into our world.   Maybe it’s okay to unlearn, to struggle with your own ignorance, to realize your racism and behaviors that harm, hurt or at the very least distance and perpetuate out of silence.   Maybe it’s okay to feel ashamed, maybe it’s […]

We Need To Act Like It #362

Published on July 7, 2020 Written by

What’s happened to us, the US that is?   It seems as if “us” (the U.S.) has turned into WE and THEY. I am challenged with how communication is shared on social media, where it seems to be a free for all of opinions and division. It’s challenging to be online and see the barrage of constant commentary tearing down our leaders – which […]

Living The Future Backward #361

Published on July 6, 2020 Written by

Years from now, when 2020 is in hindsight, what should we remember about it?  A week from now, when the events overwhelm us, what should we remember about the meetings we had?  Tomorrow, when the day gets busy, what would you like me to remember about you and the discussion we just had?  When we […]

You Never Know #360

Published on July 3, 2020 Written by

You never know.  When I’m doing something to grow and learn, I’ve found making it public gives me the drive to succeed. My need to keep my word to others exceeds my ability to keep my word to myself, so it’s often the reason I push myself to complete what feel like challenges.  Writing a blog every day […]

Only Three Answers #359

Published on July 2, 2020 Written by

I read a simple quote today. It says:  “God has only three answers to your prayers,   Yes  Not Yet  I have something better in mind for you”  There’s no downside.   Do I have the presence to pray as if it’s up to God and act as if it’s up to me?  Today, this is my framework for success as I do […]

There Is No Middle Ground #358

Published on July 1, 2020 Written by

This is a time of relationships.   If there is nothing else apparent with the challenges of 2020, this is it.  When we look back at 2020, the year started strong in business, not just a few industries, most of them. By the spring, we had learned to work at a distance, live on Zoom, deal with […]

When Nothing Changes, Nothing Changes #357

Published on June 30, 2020 Written by

2020 is certainly one for the books. One many people are calling it “a year to remember.”   Depending on the person you’re talking to, they may also refer to it as “a year to be forgotten.”  What determines which statement is true? Is it purely outlook?   In my experience, the answer depends on what you intend.   While we can’t control the […]

We Have Work To Do #356

Published on June 29, 2020 Written by

It’s interesting to me to see how perception shapes reality. I scarcely view social media these days, as I’ve noticed my peace of mind and happiness are more accessible when I spend less time online. It’s also less desirable to spend time on a screen as that seems to also consume many work days.  When I do visit social media these days, it seems […]
