Life: It’s All About the Condiments

Sure a big juicy burger is important, but for me it’s all about slathering on lots of ketchup, mustard, and Miracle Whip. As much as I enjoy a summertime hot dog from the cart in Old Town, it would be nothing without chopped onions and ketchup spilling on to my shirt. And I love shrimp, but it’s most important role is that of a delivery device for the cocktail sauce.

Have We Forgotten How To Learn Like Kids?

I was talking to a co-worker yesterday about a new task she was trying to get comfortable with. She was frustrated and lacked confidence because she didn’t feel comfortable with her new role. She was trying hard to learn, but was dissatisfied with how quickly her grasp of the duties was coming along.

Do You Want To Be Right, Or Do You Want To Be Happy?

Ok, go ahead. Laugh, point fingers, snicker. I used to watch Oprah quite a bit. (I also watched the CBS soaps too. Bold & The Beautiful was my favorite.) Part of it was the fact that I didn’t have cable, which limited my choices to Judge Judy, the guy painting on PBS, and Oprah. Back when Dr. Phil was an occasional Oprah guest I thought he was great. Now I think he has too much show, and too little material.

Are You Taking Things Personally?

I was driving through the Target parking lot yesterday, and apparently the happy lady coming from the other direction was a tad bit upset with my driving. Sure I moved over in her direction a little (at 5 mph and accidentally). And she flipped out. Arms flailing, yelling (which was extremely effective in her car with the windows rolled up, but I could see her jaw flapping away).

Reality Check: Live Until I Die

If today were my last day on earth, I think I would go without any real regrets. That feels pretty good. Now don’t get me wrong, I am very much opposed to going today, but I am certain that we have almost no say in the matter. It’s comforting to think we do, but I'm pretty sure we don’t. We can be careful, and avoid dangerous situations; but the truth is, we don’t get to chose how we die; we chose how we live.

How Good Are You at Avoiding the Wrecks in Life?

A few years ago I had the opportunity to attend the Daytona 500. You have to see it to believe it. I recommend putting it on your list of things to try and sneak in once before you die. It has nothing to do with being a racing fan. The sights, sounds, smells, the people. It is bigger than life. It’s also a sign that spring can’t be far away every February.

Find Yourself Procrastinating? ‘Eat the Frog’

I’m not sure where I heard this theory, but it is so very true. Start your day by eating the frog, and you are empowered to take on the rest of the day. (What? Really? Ribbit?!?) We have been doing some cold-calling this week, and I am fairly certain that you will never find ‘cold-calling’ on anyone’s top-ten list of favorite things to do.

Do You Leave It Better Than You Found It?

We did a lot of camping as a family when I was a kid. We packed up our van (mom and dad did all the work, but I still like to say we), and the five of us piled in for more hours in a vehicle than any family should ever spend together. Our itinerary usually took us west. Yellowstone, Canada, Tetons, Mount Rainer, Badlands, Grand Canyon, Glacier, Mount Rushmore, Wall Drug, Reptile Gardens, Bear Country USA. You get the idea.

You Are What Your Record Says You Are

We have a poster that hangs in the hallway of our office. It's a quote by former NFL head coach Bill Parcells that says, "You are what your record says you are." The point is that you can't reason distance between you and what you accomplish (or don't accomplish.) Results speak for themselves.

If Babies Come From Storks, Where Do New Ideas Come From?

I met someone new last week at lunch. We were introduced by a mutual friend. Wow, she had great energy, insights, and perspective. We spent two hours sharing ideas over Kung Pao Chicken. One of the things we discussed was the challenge in getting people in our respective organizations to dream bigger. To aim higher.

Well, What Do You Know? (vs. What Do You Believe?)

There's no shame in admitting you don't know. The real shame is pretending you do. A friend of mine posted this thought on Facebook this morning. How true it is, and how often we do it. Assuming we know is also a bad way to go. There's no substitute for really knowing something. Everything else is an imposter.

Poll: Who Should Pick Up After Your Dog? [Rhetorical Question]

Headline in the local newspaper this morning: Dog Poop Problem In Fort Collins Parks, Trails. You know you live in a nice place when that's the lead story. No drive-by shooting. No kidnapping. No arson. Dog poop. Problems are problems though, and we need to start picking it up.
