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 […]

Reading and Writing…

December 14, 2010 0 Comments

Here’s an interesting problem…. It’s a variation of the “if a tree falls in the forest does it make a sound?”  Does someone become a writer only after someone starts reading their material.  And, more specifically for people in my business, if no one actually follows the models and systems that you write about, are […]

This weekend was a great experiment for me in terms of the power of the eyes. I was honoured to be a part of my wife’s challenge to walk 60 kilometres as part of the weekend to end all women’s cancers. The role that my 3 sons and I played was the same as last […]

April 30, 2010 4 Comments

I was struck the other day by how often people are quite content to stay exactly the same.  We are comforted by the thought and feeling that today will be the same as yesterday and we hope that tomorrow will be more of the same.  We’re not interested in something new.  We’re quite happy having the […]

Well, I’m back after a long self-imposed hiatus.  The reason for the hiatus was to keep balanced while I worked on a variety of projects.  The projects were successful but one in particular was important.  I sailed across the Atlantic this past spring.  Quite an adventure and I will post more on it as time […]

Surrounding Yourself With The Best…

December 12, 2007 0 Comments

Again, I’ve had a chance to surround myself with people I respect, I learn from and who challenge me.  I think we should always give ourselves the treat of this kind of experience.  It helps to re-focus me.  It illuminates what I am doing at that time and how it fits into the bigger picture.  […]

Today… I am not going to stop, period.

November 20, 2007 0 Comments

Okay, today is one of those days.  I am being challenged with everything that I do.  Trying to finish my newsletter – The Performance Navigator – I was dogged with technical difficulties.  Even when I actually finished the article and was happy with the video that I had attached for my subscribers, I ended up […]
