You Can Be The Best You Can Be.

I came up with a simple and powerful tool the other day. I was standing in my office in front of a large Post-It notepad sheet with a red sharpie in my hand (red delivers intention!) — and the ideas just flowed. What did I come up with to help you be the best?

To be […]

I Found Out I Have PMR*.

I came upon a great quote from the Dalai Lama — 

“There are only two days in the year that nothing can be done. One is called yesterday and the other is called tomorrow, so today is the right day to love, believe, do, and mostly live.”

How often do we feel disappointed/guilty about yesterday and anxious/fearful […]

What To Do When Life Hits You Square In The Face.

Ever have a REALLY bad day? Here's how to get up and get GOING.

Start Thinking BIG Before You Get Small.

Most of the time we think small. It’s normal.

Why do we think small? We’re usually trying to closely track many of the details of our work.

The phone calls, the email follow-ups, the elements of the project, or cleaning up after other people.

The nature of our position makes us forget to see the ENTIRE forest because we […]

Is Your Career On Cruise Control?

I had a great conversation with one of my clients about his career (he’s a successful labor/employment attorney). We discussed how there are two types of people — those who have a ‘cruise control’ career and those who actively drive ‘stick-shift’ with their career.Not that there’s anything inherently bad about a cruise control career. If everything is […]

The Best Time To Find A New Job Is When You Don’t Need It.

3 Ways To Make This Monday Rock.

I have this problem. When I wake up Monday morning (around 4:15 AM), I don’t feel the happy, energized, and focused self most of my clients, colleagues, and friends see when they encounter me later in the morning. At least not until I’ve taken my meds. : )

A lot of people I know feel this way in […]

Are You On Cruise Control?

I drove to my networking meeting this morning and I take the Merritt Parkway (one of the more beautiful highways in the U.S.). I got off at the North Street exit and next thing I know, I’m on the Post Road.

10 minutes evaporated from my life — it’s like those X-Files episodes where people lose time when […]

If You Aren’t Fired With Enthusiasm, You’ll Be Fired With Enthusiasm.

“If you aren’t fired with enthusiasm, you’ll be fired with enthusiasm.” – Vince Lombardi

The funny thing is, it happens ALL the time. And people wonder . . . ‘What Happened?’:

I went to work every day.
I was there on time.
I did what they told me to do.

It’s all about PERCEPTION. I know I’m going to […]
