Every Time I Argue With Reality I Lose #36

Published on April 8, 2019 Written by

Every Time I Argue With Reality I Lose #36 When you set goals or envision your future, you engage in one of the most stimulating, exciting experiences you can have. You enter the world of possibility. The world of what hasn’t happened yet, or what could be. When you do this with another person or […]

You’re Overdue #35

Published on April 5, 2019 Written by

You’re Overdue #35 I’m preparing for another trip, one which includes a keynote in Hawaii (!! Read excitement here, most of my speaking and training destinations are not quite on the same scale as this one – think Sandusky, Ohio – no offense Sandusky friends), and this trip is flanked by time off and vacation on […]

It’s Always Easy #34

It’s Always Easy #34 Friends for a lifetime. It’s been said before, but those people who you’ve known since childhood – perhaps since single digits- you can go months and years without seeing and when you reunite it’s as if you’ve never missed a day. It’s remarkable really. I had one of these days with […]

Growth Equals Pain #33

Published on April 3, 2019 Written by

Growth Equals Pain #33 It happens in my sessions all the time. Well-intended leaders gather and generate a list of “issues” they need to solve to clear the way and reduce friction on the business for everyone involved. So why is it they can’t focus and stay on track once it’s time to dig in […]

Slowing Down to Speed Up #32

Published on April 2, 2019 Written by

Slowing Down to Speed up #32 I travel quite a bit. I observe people for a living. Going to the airport is a virtual overload of people, behaviors and adventures into human interactions of the best and worst sorts. Because I’ve accumulated enough miles, I’m often in First Class when I travel. It’s nice, it […]

From Seth’s pen to my Ears (#31) Below is Seth Godin’s blog post from today. If you’re playing along on this blogging journey with me, you may recall that I took Seth’s challenge of writing 1,000 blog posts just a month ago. So far, it’s been relatively do-able. I’m keeping up with my 5/week promise […]

They’re Not the Same #30

Published on March 29, 2019 Written by

They’re Not the Same #30 Information, knowledge and wisdom. They’re not the same. Often, people treat them as if they are the same.   Our world is filled with information; you can “Google” anything, watch a YouTube about how to do most things and learn without interacting with anyone or anything other than a screen. Many […]

Teamwork is not a Cliché #29

Published on March 28, 2019 Written by

Teamwork is not a Cliché #29 I work with teams, I celebrate teams, I watch teams and enjoy helping teams in my work. It’s entirely gratifying to work with talented people who contribute their unique skills and talents to a common goal generously.  It’s even more gratifying when that team is your family. When you work together in what seems to be […]

Well Intentioned Doesn’t Mean It’s Helpful #28

Published on March 27, 2019 Written by

Well Intentioned Doesn’t Mean It’s Helpful #28 I’m wrestling with something. It’s my own well intentioned yet non-helpful behaviors. While I like to think of myself as an open minded, open-hearted, helpful person, the reality may be that while my intentions are good, they’re not as thoughtful as they need to be for those I’m […]

Squishy Issues #27

Published on March 26, 2019 Written by

Squishy Issues? #27 Why tackle squishy issues like self-doubt? I was asked this question in an interview. First of all, I don’t think doubt is a squishy issue.  75-80% of successful people feel like imposters at times. It’s called Imposter syndrome and it’s a real thing. And if you are one of these people and […]
