Message to Graduates

June 12th, 2012 No Comments

Went to a number of Graduation parties the last couple of weekends.  Some of my very favorite young people.  The future of each one of them is very bright I have no doubt.  I read something in Roy H Williams this morning that hit home for me…  The person who achieves spectacular failure has at least [...]

 “Back in the Day” when your parents’ or grandparents’ work day was done, it was done.  When the inbox was empty, when the forms were processed or the whistle blew, you could stop.  They didn’t take work home with them.

I’m convinced that “Because I said so” is a response that has been around for as long as the english language.  We use it in response to “Why?” from our children.  “Why?” from our customers and “Why?” from our co-workers.  “Because I said so” is not now or has it ever been a valid answer [...]

May 8th, 2012 No Comments

When I was young, I wanted to be famous (most kids do I think).  I dreamed of being an Olympic Athlete or a famous movie star.  Alas, I wasn’t nearly good enough nor pretty enough.  As I grew older, I realized that it wasn’t that I wanted to be famous.  I wanted to leave my [...]

The holidays are a time to celebrate family and friends.  But you may not be feeling at all like one of Santa’s little helpers. In fact, you may be feeling like the Grinch. The holidays bring an endless round of obligations at work and at home: client annuals, cards to send, presents to buy, entertaining, [...]

How we “help” build our little ones and a better place

August 25th, 2011 No Comments

One of the best books I have read in the last decade is “The Help” by Kathryn Stockett.  One of my favorite scenes in the book was also one of my favorite in the movie and something we must NEVER lose sight of as parents.  I think it’s one of the primary points of the [...]


Get in Shape

August 22nd, 2011 No Comments

I lost 13 pounds in the past year.  Gained 3 back, but I’m going to address that starting today.  It got me thinking that there are direct corollaries between getting/keeping your body in shape and getting/keeping your business in shape.  It’s all about common sense and sticking to the fundamentals. Developing a plan to attain your [...]
