"The Launch" into my post-military service life

When Dan Miller describes "The Launch", the sculpture he commissioned that took form during INNOV48, it is just like the decision to retire from the military for me. He describes the bird with wings extended expectantly, body poised, fully committed to flight with no thought of retreat. As an Air Force pilot, that nailed the way I feel now.

I entered the service during the culmination of the cold war, saw Desert Storm unfold, was in Port au Prince, Haiti the day after the invasion was recalled after takeoff. I've been to Iraq, Afghanistan, India, Djibouti (Africa), Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Kuwait, Qatar, and been stationed in Japan, Korea, Hawaii, and throughout the continental United States. Throughout that time I have been proud to be surrounded by people committed to integrity, to service before self, and to excellence in everything they do. They are men and women who are smart, talented, and upbeat in the most dire circumstances. Most of the complaints I heard were when things were easy and carefree.

It will be extremely difficult for me to leave the military. When I do leave, I'll be looking to either join or start an organization devoted to similar tasks, to provide service where service is difficult to get, to provide a product that is hard to deliver, and work with individuals who are motivated more by the mission than by the pay and benefits.

Tough Boss? You're Lucky!

Posted on August 27, 2014 at 12:01pm 0 Comments

"I hate my boss." Have you heard that, or said that yourself? Think about the reasons someone might "hate" their boss.

- They pay attention to details and notice when you stray across the line.

- They hold you accountable for your actions.

- They continuously ask you to do more, to be more productive, and contribute more to the operation.

- They set high standards, and BHAGs (Big, Hairy, Audacious, Goals) and then points out when the team is falling short of the mark.

The Transitioning Military Members Fire Triangle

Posted on August 7, 2014 at 6:14am 2 Comments

In military-to-civilan transition workshops military members are advised that they have three options, to live where they want, make the money they want, or get the type of job they want. Dan Miller, author of the terrific career book "48 Days to the Work You Love" would say he'd want AND solutions, not OR alternatives. As a military retiree, many have the advantage of being able to accept a broader salary base and still meet their needs. This frees them to narrow their search to where they… Continue

The Creative Pause

Posted on August 2, 2014 at 5:24am 3 Comments

In America we seem to live at an ever increasing rate of acceleration. Even the idea of "48 Days to the Work You Love" is a reflection on our desire to quickly move towards our greatest future opportunity. Every once and a while it's a great idea to take a creative pause. Reflect on the greatest future with a quiet spirit. In this way you can open your mind to creativity, experience innovative ideas, and perhaps hit an internal "reset" setting that get's you closer to the person that you were… Continue

Multiple lines of effort to support one objective

Posted on February 16, 2014 at 7:07am 2 Comments

"Keep it simple." That's what we say, right? Whether we're launching a new business or putting together a military campaign one of the keys to success is a clear understanding of the overall objective.

The complexity comes in when we have multiple lines of effort involved. Let's think about our marketing effort for our new coaching offering. The objective is to add 5 new coaching clients in the next 90 days. Do meet this objective we use three different lines of effort.

Nice to see people I know on the boards!  Still poking around and getting an idea of what's here.  Getting all of the pieces in place to open new opportunities and pursue different goals that are aligned with my values.  I would love to reconnect with you.  I'll shoot you a note off line.  Thanks for the pointer to the veterans group.  Hadn't found that one yet. ~ PJ

Thanks for the comment, and giving me some motivation.  I've already started networking with forums, and other organizations in my state, and any help is appreciated.  Once I get some products moving, I'll deff be looking at doing booths like you suggested.  Thank you!

Thanks for connecting, Lee. I was in the airlines, and gone a few days every week. My kids just started school and there's a lot I'd be missing if I was still traveling as much.

Insurance is important depending on the circumstances of each person. Have you ever heard of the "theory of decreasing responsibility?" Basically it states that the older one gets, the less responsibility one has, i.e. no mortgage, grown kids, etc... Now this is not always the case, so it depends on the specific needs of the individual and does your income still need to be protected, mortgage, debt, and college.


If you need insurance, then go with Term only. And of course only the amount of coverage that is specific to your needs. If you want more information then just let me know :)
