Are You Crazy Enough To Do Something That’s NOT Your Job? (I Hope So)

I stopped to use the bathroom in a small store yesterday. I was running errands, and needed a little pit-stop. There was only one stall, so choosing wasn’t difficult. I walked in, closed the door and bam, no toilet paper on the roll. There were however two new rolls sitting on top of the toilet. Apparently the last occupant felt as though it was my job to change the roll. Who does that? (I’m afraid of the answer.)

Extra, Extra: Ignore Change And Become Irrelevant

A while back I stopped at the store on the way home from work to grab some beer. (Which will come as a surprise to absolutely no one.) There was a table out front with a nice man sitting at it. He had a clip board and some pens on the table, and a big sign propped up behind him that read, “Sign up to receive the newspaper for FREE for 60 days, and get $10 in FREE groceries.” What!?!

The World Depends On Your Happiness (No Pressure)

I have been spending the last few days with my parents in Minneapolis. When I was growing up, my dad used to corner me (and likely my brother & sister too) and force me to have meaningful discussions. Meaning of life kind of stuff. Of course all we wanted to do was escape, and sink back in to an episode of Tom & Jerry, or a game of football in the yard with friends.

There’s No Shortcut To Staying Relevant

The world is changing. Now wait a minute. Take it easy. I didn’t say the sky is falling, I said the world is changing. And that, by the way, is nothing new. It is however changing at a lightning-fast pace. It’s the digital revolution brothers and sisters. Social media, technology, traditional media, and communication are different today than they were just yesterday. Imagine what tomorrow will bring.

Happy New Year: What Are Your Goals For 2012?

I had lunch with a friend last week who recently asked her kids what their goals were. Her 12-year old son said, “What are you talking about?” Her 15-year old daughter responded, “Mom, you’re always putting so much pressure on me,” and stormed out of the room. We laughed and she asked if that made her a bad parent.

Sometimes ‘No Good Reason’ Is A Good Reason

Education is good. Knowledge is good. Experience is good. Planning is good. A mentor is good. Street smarts are good. Advice is good. Common sense is good. Research is good. And yes, (drum roll) sometimes ignorance is bliss. Ok, maybe not ignorance…but faith, intuition, gut, or feeling.

Has Third Grade Created A Society Of Line Leaders? (Pick Me, Pick Me)

Ok, there are just some things we’ll never see eye to eye on. I get it, and I’m fine with it. Just please don’t hurt me for what I am about to say. Why do we feel the need to “punish” the person who decides to merge at the last moment when approaching a lane closure in a construction zone?

Warning: Blaming Others Steals Your Power

From all accounts, Heisman Trophy winning Texas Longhorn, New Orleans Saint, on again, off again Miami Dolphin running back Ricky Williams had a tough childhood. There have been allegations of abuse among other things. His tough childhood has transformed into an unpredictable adulthood. As I was watching his bio on ESPN, I was really inspired by something he said.

Three Months From Now What Will You Wish You Had Started Today?

I wish I had played a little less football in the yard with my friends in fifth grade, and taken piano lessons instead. Now, of course there’s no way anyone could have convinced me of that in 1974. (In fact, my inner child is on the floor right now rolling around in laughter!) Today I find myself with virtually no musical talent. I don’t even subject the bottle of shampoo to my singing. I wish I had stuck with those piano lessons. Oddly enough, all of my front-yard football didn’t land me a position in the NFL either. I wish I knew then, what I know now.

Are You Worried That Your Worrying Is Becoming Worrisome?

I had dinner with a friend last week who likely has a secret mantle full of trophies for all kinds of competitions he has won for being the worlds biggest worrier. I mean really. Worry about work, about family, about world peace, about the weather, about the economy, about Iraq, about Iran, about how his meat is cooked, about health care reform, about…

Caution: ‘Just Fine’ Might Not Be Good Enough

Around the office here, we have developed a fairly deep hatred for the word fine. If I ask you how something is, and you respond, “It’s fine,” I am going to conclude that you’re also saying that it’s not great. Fine is fine, and great is great. There’s no confusing the two. If we’re satisfied with fine, we are likely not pursuing great. And that’s not a place I like to be.

Are You A Giver Or A Taker?

Quick. Close your eyes and name the first five people that come to mind that you think have a great attitude. (Mary, James, Hanna, Meg, and Mike.) Ok, good. Now let’s do it again with the names of the first five people that come to mind that seem to drag the rest of the world down a little bit. (Steve, Sara, Bonnie, Tony, and Dave.)
