A Crime… Possibly Your Crime

June 30, 2011 0 Comments

Many people have experienced crime of some sort.  Perhaps you had something stolen from you.  Hopefully nothing worse. I was thinking about a crime the other day that likely goes unreported.  And, I expect that it may be prevalant. The crime that I’m talking about is loss of dreaming, the disappearance of aspirations.  I think […]

I have blogged on this before, but it is so good that I need to remind everyone of it again. I want you to watch a video on a coach who has an amazing grasp of what motivates people, in particular young people. When you’re done, reflect on how this applies to you.  What can […]

I had the great fortune to receive a spa weekend for my wife and I as a gift from a client.  It was a great gift and we had a wonderful weekend.  And, believe it or not, during my massage, I learned a wonderful metaphor. As a person who like connecting with people, I was […]

I’m part way through an interesting book called The Talent Code by Daniel Coyle. It’s based on some interesting research which has implications that can benefit everyone.

Telling Your Story… in Business

May 25, 2011 0 Comments

Business people do not talk about stories. And, yet, the most successful business people use stories explicitly and implicitly in their business every day. As I’ve mentioned before, I believe that stories are one of the most important aspects of human life. And, they are everywhere! But, for the moment let’s discuss only their application […]

Fitness… Get the Message

May 19, 2011 0 Comments

I’ve seen a number of studies recently that show that physical fitness helps mental acuity… in the elderly, in children, in adults.

Being Centered… Maybe Not

March 31, 2011 1 Comment

Often people say that you need to be centered.  That you need to find your center. I won’t disagree with that but I will add a slightly different point of view.  While you need to be centered and know who it is that you are as a leader, business leader, or personal and professional person.  You […]

A Still River Runs Deep

March 24, 2011 2 Comments

That was a line in a song I heard recently.  When I heard it, I was quite impressed with the metaphor and thought what a great reminder for how we should deal with other people.  Why you ask. Because a still river is often still moving very quickly.  There can be a lot of stuff […]

Your Greatest Advocate

March 21, 2011 0 Comments

Today, I had a great reminder of something that I’ve known for quite a while. Having said that, isn’t it nice to be gently or not so gently reminded of life’s truths from time to time. What I was reminded of was who is my greatest advocate. Before I tell you, can you tell me […]
