Stop Blogging; Start Teaching

Creative, high-tech eLearning instructional designers are the new content marketers. | An HR recruiter

I've been a ghost writer of countless blogs for organizational management companies, fund raising companies, and money management firms. The formula is fairly consistent—present a problem, offer a solution, and end with a call to action. Typically, the blog posts are more about persuading the reader to utilize the company's…

What Would it Take to Get You to Give a Speech?

“Oh, no, you won’t get me up in front of a group of people giving a speech.”

I’ve heard that hundreds of times. HOWEVER, once business owners see what speaking to groups can do for their business, they start changing their tune, or at least the smart ones do…

If you want to increase revenues and you can create at least one effective signature talk, speaking gives you an enormous tool to fuel business growth.

Are you interested? It costs you nothing to learn…

Healthy Food: Trading One Poison for Another

It’s always encouraging to me when a food company seems to listen to consumers and decides to remove a dangerous ingredient. One of the most dangerous ingredients in foods today is aspartame (NutraSweet). It is a known …

Praising Employees: Are You Using a One-Size-Fits-All Approach? Stop That.

We’ve all seen it. Just like this billboard – an employee’s accomplishments announced in a huge way. The employee either loves it or hates it.

Using a one-size-fits-all approach to praising your employees hurts your team.

The best case is employees are neutral about it. More likely, though,…

One Step at a Time

Albert Einstein talked about the relativity of time and space and how we experience it can change our perception of it. Living in the fast-paced world we do today it’s easy to become frustrated when we do not achieve the results we are looking for as quickly as we wanted and/or…

Cadence Is an Art Form to Live and Work Beautifully

Cadence is phrasing, rhythm, and flow.

Think about music ... melody and rhythm are composed to end and begin phrases, sections, and even movements.

Writing ... words and phrases flow in an almost musical cadence.

Speaking ... the modulation of the voice, slightly falling…

Enjoy the Productivity of Rest

Hi 48 Days Friends. I've been in Alaska, so am late posting this. I hope you are doing well! DW

I rested my head on my pillow, but my mind kept working. I’d pushed all day, yet I hadn’t accomplished what I wanted. Would sleep be one more thing that wouldn’t get done?

Divine Economy Theory – What Is It?

There are synonymous terms although conceptually the ‘divine economy theory’ is significantly richer. Some of the synonymous terms are ‘unhampered market economy’ which is referred to by Ludwig von Mises in Human Action and there is ‘laissez-faire’ championed by Anne-Robert-Jacques Turgot. Basically the gist of the meaning of these terms (including ‘divine economy theory’) is that the market process captures most perfectly the will expressed through human action of all of the human…

Group Leader
Have you fallen off the grid?

Hey, if you are anything like me sometimes you "fall off the grid." You give up on the dream, you quit trying - mainly because of life.
We have home, work, kids, interruptions, etc. Then we get embarrassed to re-engage. But that's exactly what we must do. We get back in the game. Here at 48days.net you won't get hassled about the past but encouraged by the future. Scared- keep engaged.

Health and Healing: What Happens When the Unexpected Becomes Reality?

In the last post I explained how I ended up in the hospital needing emergency surgery for a severe intestinal blockage.  I’d like to expand on that just a little before I get into what I have learned from this experience. The words in the song in the video above just seemed a perfect way to thank God for bringing me through such a challenging and…

A 48 Days RANT --- and CHANGES!

Yeah, it's me again.  I haven't been too active (OK, NOT active) in the last few years on this thing.  But, situations have changed.

I knew 2015 would be my year ... and it IS!  I can't believe the changes that have happened that caused this year to be a different one.  Three things changed for me --- my church closed (one I have been going to my whole life) in 2013, in 2014 my job schedule changed (from early morning hours to afternoons-evenings), in 2015, my health changed…

Experiences make the best gifts

Have you ever been badgered by your child to buy a certain thing for them?  We've all been there.  The latest fad or craze descends. All of their friends have it.  It's all over TV.  Your child simply cannot live without it.  You try to avoid the shops and places where they will be reminded of this thing they can't possibly live without. You don't want them to catch you at a vulnerable time and when you are affected by any momentary lapse of willpower.  However, eventually you relent and…

Don't Be Afraid To Be a Little Weird!

A challenge to you, gentle 48Days.net member... Google "funny yard sale signs"... Make sure safe search is turned on, please.

A few years ago, we had to move loads of STUFF out of our house, and I do mean loads, all in one weekend. It was a long weekend and I knew I'd be up against some heavy competition from the rest of the town's yard sales. My strategy? Off-the-wall, humorous and just plain ridiculous yard sale signs that would pique the curiosities of people who weren't even… Continue
