Resources to Succeed

By |2019-05-31T20:20:48+00:00May 31st, 2019|

I believe most people already have the internal resources it takes to succeed. I also believe that it often takes external resources to help people find their inner resources.


Trading Punches

By |2019-05-30T19:11:51+00:00May 30th, 2019|

The current big tariffs and tough negotiations with China is what happens when people believe the current conditions are no longer tolerable. I am not commenting if this is the right approach or not with China. But it is an example of an attempt at corrective action. It is an [...]


X Factors

By |2019-05-29T22:39:16+00:00May 29th, 2019|

I learned from an expert at Christie’s that there are several factors used to determine the value of a collectable like a vintage watch. These include condition, rarity, current desirability, and even an "X factor." X factors include facts like famous owners. One collectable Rolex was worth hundreds of thousands [...]


Mind Muscle Connections

By |2019-05-24T13:50:35+00:00May 24th, 2019|

Do you have good mind-muscle connections? Most people have a poor mind-muscle connection with their abs and their back muscles. It is why they have poor stability and posture. People are more likely to have a good mind-muscle connection with their biceps and chest muscles. These are upfront and easy [...]

One cannot continue to make bad choices and expect good things to happen. This applies to fitness, nutrition, finances, AND our effectiveness at work.


Leaders and Time Under Tension

By |2019-05-22T17:43:40+00:00May 22nd, 2019|

A reason many people see little results from the gym is because they don’t spend enough time under tension. Doing 10-12 reps without it being challenging is a waste of time. Chatting with a trainer or texting while going through the motions is a waste of time. Even at work, [...]


Apparent Safety

An investigation recently concluded that power lines downed in high winds were the primary cause of the devastating Camp Fire in California last year. While there was lots of activity to reduce the impact of accidents from regular people living and working in the area, the investigation showed it was [...]


Even a Donkey

By |2019-05-20T18:20:33+00:00May 20th, 2019|

This weekend I was surprised with the scene of a little donkey pushing a basketball all over a big pasture with his nose and forefeet. He seemed to be enjoying himself. Even a donkey seems to know how to play and enjoy where he is. Do you?


The $2 Billion Headache

By |2019-05-17T16:36:36+00:00May 17th, 2019|

When Bayer bought Monsanto they also inherited over 13,000 lawsuits alleging that Roundup weed killer caused cancer. One couple just got a 2 billion dollar jury award. Any deal can come with a side order of headaches whether a big acquisition, a key hire, or the latest software purchase that [...]


Leaders Taking Flight

By |2019-05-16T15:45:13+00:00May 16th, 2019|

Why do flight attendants close the full overhead bins when people are still boarding? Later boarding passengers will inevitably open all the closed bins as they gamely search for a place for their bag. I think the flight attendants close them because they have already convinced themselves there is no [...]
