You’ll See It When You Believe It

How many times have we heard that our true potential is limited only by the scope of our own thoughts, dreams, and beliefs? Too many times to count. I don't just believe it, I know it's true. I assume that deep down inside many others follow that line of thinking as well. The problem is that the concept puts all the responsibility on each of us, when it would be so much more convenient to just cast blame somewhere else.

Warning: Anger Clouds Your Vision When Crafting Solutions

You have a problem. Someone or something is causing you headaches, making you crazy, and ruining your world. You have the ability to do something about it, and that's a wonderful thing. You are fed up and very angry, ready to make changes. That is not a wonderful thing. (Well, the changes could be good, but the anger will make them less effective.)

2012: The Year of Execution (If We Want To Accomplish Something)

It's a new morning and there's a whole day ahead of us. It's a Monday, and there's a whole week ahead of us. It's January, and there's a whole year ahead of us. Of course there's going to be a whole lot of 'doing' required to realize the potential of the coming day, week, and year. Just imagine what we could accomplish with a focus on execution.

Maybe The Cover Of The Book Does Matter

We've all heard the expression, 'Don't judge a book by its cover.' Well, I would like to have that changed to, 'There's more to a more to a book than its cover.' Why? Because the cover is important. Sure, there's more to the book than just the cover, but don't be fooled, covers matter. Yours, mine, his, hers, all of them.

If You’re Not Making Any Mistakes, You’re Not Trying Anything New

Mistakes are inevitable. If we're not making mistakes along the way, we're not trying anything new. If we're not trying anything new, we're not growing. If we're not growing, then what are we doing here? Mistakes are a necessary part of the process.

Delivering Results: Anyone On The Planet Can NOT Get The Job Done

Regardless of what we do for a living, every job comes with a certain set of expectations. Our boss expects certain things, our customers have a different set of expectations for us. Even our co-workers expect us to perform in a certain way. Sometimes those expectations are in alignment with each other, occasionally they are in direct conflict. Our job is to understand, prioritize, and deliver. Period.

Beware Of The Pursuit Of Too Much Happiness

First it was Viagra. Then Cialis and Levitra. I'm sure I'm forgetting some. Now I keep hearing ads on the radio for a testosterone replacement drug (Super-T or something like that). The ad says that not only will it give you a young, muscular body, but your sex drive will be restored to that of your high school days. Who can that possibly be good for?

What Could Switching A Bad Habit With A Good One Accomplish?

I love to read. Novels, biographies, magazines, periodicals. I enjoy the way you can lose the rest of the world when you dive into a good book. The problem is that my busy schedule doesn't seem to leave me a lot of time for reading. Reading takes time. We live in a short-attention span, remote control, Twitter and Facebook, small burst kind of world. Reading takes effort and commitment. TV and Internet are easier.

Traffic Congestion On Path Of Least Resistance: Take Alternate Route

Imagine a serene, babbling brook running through the forest, tumbling over logs and around rocks. Along comes a leaf, gently dancing on the water's surface, following wherever the water takes it. Ok, peaceful moment over. That leaf is you and I, and the water is the path of least resistance.

State Of The Union: Our Need To Be Right All The Time Is Paralyzing The USA

I just finished reading Stephen King's latest book 11/22/63. It's about a man that stumbles upon a portal in time that allows him to travel back and forth between 2011 and 1958. He decides to use this ability to prevent the assassination of President Kennedy. To be sure, like Obama and all other presidents, Kennedy had his supporters and his detractors.

When You Relax Things Float To The Surface Of Your Mind

My wife meditates regularly, and I do not. I have mediated occasionally, and I like it. I think it has many positive effects, not the least of which is just plain relaxing. For whatever reason I just haven't stuck with it. (See: Things that don't surprise people that know me!) No question though, relaxing helps you think.

Don’t Underestimate The Power Of A Pat On The Back

I work in a building full of people that come in and do what they do everyday because they truly love what they do. Talk about a great place to spend your time. Granted, we have the good fortune of working in an industry that is built for joy; entertainment, music, fun, contests, creativity, on-air, digital. It's not a bad gig.
