Don’t Miss Your Train

Years ago when I was in college working towards my masters and living away from home for the first time, I took public transportation from San Jose, CA to San Francisco, CA to attend a large St. Patrick’s Day celebration. On the surface…

What Have You Been Called to Do; Put all Aside and Do it!

Pressures, demands, expectations, and daily to-do-lists assault us from all sides and constantly attack our schedules. Do this, do that, get here, get there, start this, and finish that. Every day we are pulled in different directions by our family, friends,...

Maintaining Momentum in 2019

Happy New Year! If you’ve recently been to any retailer you know that Valentine’s Day is upon us. Well, actually, not really but…

Apples and Babies

Sitting down to write this month’s BLOG, it was hard not to notice the fact that there is much happening in the world today; numerous events, goings on, etc. all vying for our attention…

And we desire that each one of you take the time to receive what is meant to be yours so you can give to others what is to be theirs.

And we desire that each one of you take the time to receive what is meant to be yours so you can give to others what is to be theirs.

So “Why,” you may ask, “Should I work to receive what is mine so I can give to others?” Well… as we realize that our cultivating our innate talents and abilities (i.e., refining our excellence) is not solely about us, we begin moving towards the answer. To be clear, nobody’s excellence zone is more important than anyone else’s. If you question this, try measuring any executive team’s productivity after two days of a custodian strike when the restroom toilets are backed up.

And with that she rushed out the door only to realize she had forgotten the baby in favor of the car keys.

And with that she rushed out the door only to realize she had forgotten the baby in favor of the car keys.

Ever feel like you’re one step away from achieving a goal but just can’t seem to figure out what’s missing to execute it? Perhaps you often find yourself reaching for the car keys (the dream) but forgetting the baby (the responsibilities attached to the dream). If this is you, my question today is, “Do you have a personal business plan?” You may, in fact…

When the Going Gets Tough, the Tough Get to Leading Thyself

When the Going Gets Tough, the Tough Get to Leading Thyself

Never let it be said that we failed to embrace love, life’s passion, or an opportunity to execute excellence as we were holding in our hands the power to be a charismatic leader of one.

Hmm, O.K. but how do we become so skilled at leading ourselves that others should consider us worthy of being entrusted with their most precious resources…

Ready – Set – Go Ducks!

Ready – Set – Go Ducks!

Ready (grab your ducks), set (get those ducks lined up), and go (to lunch)… Why is it that we often try so very hard to ensure we have everything just so when moving towards a goal? How often have you been in a conversation only to hear…

Who Needs Acceptance in Your Workplace This Week?

Who Needs Acceptance in Your Workplace This Week?

If you’re anything like most of us, you have probably heard the saying, “Hurting people hurt others.” If that is in fact the case much of the time (and I’ll go out on a limb here to suggest that it is) then isn’t it also possible that loving folks facilitate love in others? O.K., stay with…

Do You Have Time to Paint Somebody’s Walls?

Do You Have Time to Paint Somebody’s Walls?

Yesterday I found myself painting a friend’s walls. Granted I was simply doing touch-up work but the task consumed most of the day. The inside of my friend’s home has different colors; four to be exact. So every so often I had to repeat the process of shaking/stirring a paint container, prying it open…

The 30 Second Impact

The 30 Second Impact

Did you know that we each posses the ability to acutely affect each other in even the shortest amount of time? It’s true; we are capable of doing this through different types of friendships, and even as strangers. A case in point, I attend a very large international church in…
