A Touchy Topic

May 21, 2009...



Undoubtedly, this is not a subject high on many people's favorite discussion topics. Talking about our rejections and failures takes us to a just doesn't feel very good to go there, does it?

Failure is Easy

May 20, 2009...

People don't plan to fail.

But we often do.

Why is that?

I believe the secret to answering this question can be found in an old quotation:

"I want to be the best I can be!"

May 19, 2009...

"I want to be the best I can be!"

It's an admirable doubt. Desiring to be the very best person we can pays rich rewards in a number of life-changing areas:

1. Our careers prosper and opportunities open.

What ONE special thing...?

May 18, 2009...

What one thing would you do if you knew you couldn't fail?

Would you switch careers? Run for political office? Write a book? Or become a professional dancer?

Would you start a business? Fix a broken relationship? Run a 10K? Or raise a child?

The "26"

May 17, 2009...

"The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog."

This short, little sentence actually contains every one of the 26 letters of the alphabet. (Go ahead...look! The "q"...the "x"...the "z"...yep! They're all there!)

The Big and the Small

May 16, 2009...

We've all heard the expression "Dream BIG!" Somewhere along our life journey, those two words have been whispered into our spirit.

"Dream BIG!"

And why not?

Invest in YOU

May 15, 2009...

Investing. It's on a lot of people's minds.

Should I...or shouldn't I?

Should I invest in the Stock Market? Should I invest in buying a home?

Which comes first?

May 14, 2009...

To the ancient baffler:

"The chicken or the egg...which came first?"

I wouldn't even begin to pretend to know the answer.

To a more relevant-to-my-life dilemma:

"Extra Mile" People

May 13, 2009...

I am really lucky.

Why? I am surrounded by total "extra-mile" people.

I don't know about you, but when I am around an "extra-mile" person, I flat out get better. My productivity increases. My energy raises. My vision soars.

One of THOSE Days

May 12, 2009...

Today was one of THOSE days.

Pieces were not falling into place. Results were slow. Items on my "TO DO" list seemed to be piling up exponentially.

It was one of THOSE days.

So what did I do?
