Five Business Lessons that Sandy Taught Us

Watching the pictures from the effects of Hurricane Sandy has reminded me that the ghost sticks around a long time, especially if you don’t learn the lessons on how to deal with the demon. There are many lessons to be learned from Hurricane Sandy. Far too […]

Our impaired vision does not really change us. It doesn’t change our values, our […]

Get Unstuck through Improv

Get Unstuck through Improv

Just think about this simple observation. When we were young-un’s we were completely uninhibited. We said whatever came to mind. Nothing to embarass us, hold us back. Nothing to get us stuck in our own mindset of what was acceptable, what was proper. We just let it out there. Our minds were totally free. Oh how I wish I could capture just a smidgeon of this again. Wouldn’t that be absolutely empowering? That is […]

Focusing on one project at a time

Focusing on one project at a time

  Yeah!!! A bit of a breakthrough day. I was able to get something done that I’ve been grappling with for weeks. Yesterday I decided to implement some of the lessons from the book The Myth of Multitasking: How “Doing It All” Gets Nothing Done by Dave Crenshaw.
