The Rest is for Someone Else #854 

Published on May 26, 2022 Written by

Are you a doer?   Me too.  The world loves a person who will bury themselves for accomplishment.   We cosign the deal out of need, lack, and the vacancy in our wholeness (which doesn’t exist).  Don’t bury yourself out of lack.  Find another way to do only that which feeds your soul.  The rest is for… View Article

Find Out #853

Disengagement is a thing.  When you’re disengaged, it’s often because you’ve lost connection with your purpose.   When we think of living purposefully, it’s in the word, purpose fully.   If you don’t know your purpose, it’s worth your time to dig in and explore. Without it, you can pass time, yet it can feel shallow, hollow,… View Article

Defining Success #852 

Published on May 24, 2022 Written by

How do you define success?  We all measure it differently. Some say, it’s completing something, and you’d sign up to do it again. Others measure in money, material wealth, possessions, and stuff. Others measure by the accolades and awards they collect, and some measure relationships. How many and the quality are up to the person. … View Article

Misunderstanding Begins Here #851 

Published on May 23, 2022 Written by

Our work and our leadership teams depend on trust. Really, all relationships depend on trust.  You can call it psychological safety and many other things, but Patrick Lencioni nailed it when he said the base of all great relationships begins with trust.  It seems underwhelming to say, but it’s where it all begins and what… View Article

Grow Your Good #848

I recently had the pleasure of learning with Ella Bell Smith at the Women Presidents Organization conference. Her workshop was both sobering and inspiring. Here are some thoughts to ponder from her:  Have you paused to consider followership? In other words, are you worth following as a leader? In what ways are you, in what ways… View Article

How To Improve Your Culture #847 

Published on May 17, 2022 Written by

Culture comes from the top of the house.  If you’re a leader focused on your team, your first job is to develop yourself and them. The mode you’re in sets the tone for your team. What’s your day-to-day mood, mode, and behavior?  What I recognize is moods, modes, and behaviors I’ve consistently displayed include versions… View Article

Do You Really Know What You Want? #846 

Published on May 16, 2022 Written by

When you look up, do you know what you want on the other side of any venture?  I find when I ask what I’m seeking, what outcome I want, or what results I’m expecting, I could be more specific most of the time. In fact, I find that to be true for most people when… View Article

It’s About Time #845 

Published on May 13, 2022 Written by

Work smarter, not harder.  We’ve all heard the phrase and when we do so, it makes more sense than the cliché it’s become.  In my journey to 1,000 blogs, some of the benefits have made me more efficient overall. An example is what time of day I write.  In the morning, it’s my best and… View Article
