Leadership Thought #483 – Words Matter

By |January 19th, 2017|Business, Personal, Your Leadership Role, Your Words|0 Comments

I remember my mom telling me early on that “words matter.”  Once you say something it cannot be unsaid.  Even if you apologize and/or make excuses, the imprint on another person’s brain is still there.  And, sometimes the repercussions can last for years or even a lifetime.  There are many situations where I wish I […]

Leadership Thought #459 – 7 Tips You Ensure You Hit Your Resolutions For The New Year

By |January 4th, 2017|Business, Personal, Your Actions, Your Life|0 Comments

Most of us will start the New Year with a list of goals we would like to achieve over the course of the next year. Making New Years' Resolutions has become an American pastime. Unfortunately, a majority of us will end up falling far below our initial expectations. For some reason we either lose interest, become distracted by other things, or find the goals end up requiring more than we are willing to give to get there. Over the years I've observed a much smaller number of people who actually achieve what they set out to do.

Reflecting On Memorial Day

By |May 27th, 2016|Miscellaneous, Personal, Uncategorized|1 Comment

It's very easy to forget the significance of something the further you are removed from its reality. It used to be that war touched the majority of Americans directly, but now many of us only feel the consequences indirectly. Our nation has been at war for more than 10 years now and our troops (and those of our allies) continue to risk their life on a daily basis. Thankfully, we seem to be scaling back the required sacrifice, but the loss of even one soldier is a tragedy let alone the 4,977 that have given their life in combat in Iraq and Afghanistan since 2001. This is a heavy emotional burden that will be felt by families for generations. We also shouldn't also forget the life altering injuries that tens of thousand of our troops have suffered and the devastating psychological consequences of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

Leadership Thought #352 – What I Learned From My Mom

By |April 17th, 2016|Miscellaneous, Personal, Your Life|3 Comments

A mother is a very special person in a child's life and if you are lucky, a lingering positive presence throughout your adult life. Much of what we first learn comes from our mom. She is often the calm in the midst of the many storms we encounter. She is there for you no matter what. I am blessed that my mom had so much to offer. The following lessons are just a small sampling of her overall impact on my life:

Leadership Thought #267 – Happiness Comes From Within

By |December 17th, 2015|Personal, Your Actions, Your Decisions, Your Life|5 Comments

Life can be a roller coaster at times. There will be highs and there will be lows. The important thing is not to overreact or think that everything has to be perfect all the time. Perspective is important. There is no silver bullet. There is nothing you can buy or pill you can take that will make you happy for any extended period.

I've always looked forward to Thanksgiving Day. It is one of my favorite holidays of the year. The combination of the food, the parade, football and most importantly family makes it a special day.

As you raise your glass this weekend, please take a moment to reflect on what Monday truly means. There are currently several hundred thousand hundred troops stationed directly in harms way doing very dangerous often thankless work. We owe them and their predecessors a vast debt of gratitude.
