You Never Know #361

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 #360

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

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

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

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 […]

Resilience Will Follow #355

Peace is found when your mind is still. How often do you find peace? Do you make time for it? Do you enjoy the luxury of doing nothing from time to time? If not, it may be overdue. When I talk with leaders about clarity breaks, most don’t have a regular practice of doing them. […]

Pay Attention #354

 This week, I worked with two of my teams in person. Since March 10, these are two of the three teams I’ve seen “live” beyond Zoom.  In the most basic of ways, the spring of 2020 has stripped the pretense of formality and left us with clarity of the “real” priorities in life. While many of us […]

Where Do You Stand? #353

“We can do hard things.” Glennon Doyle  I was reminded of this quote by @KimpaMoss in March when the US was shutting down. Little did I know at the time that this quote would be a theme for 2020.   What began as the best year the majority of my clients have ever seen, migrated to […]

Choose Wisely #352

Flying again. Today, I’m returning from my first business trip since the first week of March. To be clear, prior to the Spring of 2020, I travelled quite extensively.   It’s a different experience. In fact, beyond your home, the airport may be the safest place to spend time.   It’s eerie and unfamiliar to walk through […]

Time To Adjust #351

Back to the basics.   When things get chaotic and seem to be out of control, disorganized or feeling out of sorts, it’s easy for overwhelm to be the result.  When this happens, we must rely on structure and process to bring us back to a focused and organized world.  One step at a time, we must look […]
