If you don't decide what your life is about, it defaults to what you spend your days doing. ~Robert Brault

 

Many of us believe that we know where it is that we want to go in life and how we want to live.  At least we think we do.  Maybe a few of us have even written it down somewhere.  But many of us don’t realize just how many other people (some uninvited) have coauthored that imagined destination and way of life with us.  We mig...

I broke one of my travel rules this week.  Yes-I watched the in-flight movie instead of working...I admit it.  But, what I learned is that sometimes it pays to break the rules.  The movie-Spare Parts-which had come highly recommended by a recent participant in one of my programs in Mexico, was definitely worth the watch!  If you haven’t had a chance to see it, please do. 

 

It is based on a true story about a gr...

 

My daughter, Tatiana, requested this post in honor of Tourette Syndrome awareness month.  It is an updated post first published in a parent blog I did in 2013.

 

The first time I noticed Tatiana’s tics was one day while she was watching television.  She was only 18 months old and didn’t talk yet.  She would open her mouth really wide and squint her eyes, almost like she was yawning, but much bigger and very sudden...like jerk...

I spent Memorial Day weekend camping with my family.  We usually go camping once a year over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, escaping from the eating and shopping frenzy that seems to contradict the very point of being thankful for what we have (another topic altogether). 

 

I have to admit that I was a bit concerned about...

We all know that what we eat affects our bodies and our minds.  We might also realize that ideal brain function depends on the consumption of certain vitamins/minerals and can benefit from other functional components found in foods.  However, we may not know what foods are highest in these beneficial compounds or we may not be making the effort to consume these foods as regularly as we could. 

 

Here is a list of 10 foods...

 

We all know that in business it is much better to be proactive than reactive.  Whether we are talking about adapting to a changing market, staying ahead of competitors, delighting customers, creating products, offering up valuable services, or improving processes, it is best to anticipate what might happen and act accordingly.  The best in business know this and constantly strive to be as proactive as possible.  We will always e...

I normally post my weekly content on a Monday or Tuesday every week without fail.  This past week, each time I sat down at my computer to write, something interrupted me in the middle of what was sure to be a deep and meaningful post!  I guess that one will just have to wait!

 

Email notifications, text message notifications, a phone call, social media notifications, open windows at the bottom of my screen calling my name, a r...

I recently returned from delivering a training program in Mexico and was inspired by something that the leader of the team (thank you Roger!) said at the conclusion of the program.  He asked each person on his team if they considered themselves to be part of their own family.  There had been a lot of discussion over the 2 days of training about taking care of family, being fully present for family, and giving family high quality...

 

 

Just as Hamlet contemplated whether it was better to live or die in one of the most memorable lines of a Shakespeare play, we should contemplate whether to worry or not, considering the potential it could have on our health and well-being.

 

Do you know anyone who worries all the time about everything?  Work, family, kids, future, economy, politics, weather, big things, little things, anything.  Perhaps you are one of them.  I us...

 

The 2 most common reasons that people give me for not exercising on a regular basis are (1) I just don't have time and (2) I'm lazy.  Now mind you that the majority of people that I am working with are smart and successful employees within a variety of high performing organizations.  They are anything but lazy AND they are able to squeeze in an incredible amount of professional and personal tasks and activities into one day....
