When Something Doesn't Look Right

In 2011, the daughter of one of our closest friends was getting married. My girlfriend was so excited as this was her only daughter. The wild adventure of finding the perfect dress, venue, flowers was about to begin. When the “desired” gown was way out of line for the budget, my girlfriend’s sister (aunt of the bride) offered to make a dress like the one her niece wanted.…

Show Up

When I started my property maintenance company, most of the calls I got in the beginning were to finish jobs that someone else had either left unfinished or didn't even show up for after they were awarded the work. I didn't think I was any better than the other guys and I definitely wasn't cheaper than they were, but I showed up when they didn't. When we expanded to include moving labor, again, most of our calls came in at the last minute asking if we could rush over right away because the…

Healthy Living: Do You Ever Get a Little Crazy with Your Food?

The beginning of this scene from the Big Bang Theory always makes me laugh. Sheldon is so rigid about how things are to be done, he accuses his girlfriend Amy of acting like she’s “at a rave” simply because she wants to combine two different kinds of tea in one cup!

He would certainly have a field day at my house! I typically combine several different…

13 Meaningful Gifts for All Ages

  1. Photo Puzzle

The 48-piece version by Portrait Puzzles is a meaningful gift for a first birthday (even though he/she won’t be able to use it until he/she is two). I like the one from Portrait Puzzles, because you can upgrade for a keepsake tin box and because they offer the hard-to-find large puzzle with…

Business Is Personal. If You Don't Agree You Shouldn't Be In Business.

It’s not personal, it’s strictly business” – Said Michael Corleone in the Godfather.

I have had this said to me many time over the years. It is often used as a precursor for some ridiculous next statement, often grounded in BS, an excuse for bad behavior, poor decisions, and not putting people first, in the name of business. 

Business is Personal

One thing we all have in common…

A Slight Issue with One Statement in Chapter 8

I started this as a comment on the daily coaching page but this is probably a better place. I am confident Dan would agree if he had more experience with our industry and it IS the kind of thing I heard about 30 years ago so I hope this is received as a comment more so than a rebuke.

The blanket statement "Recruiters run these blind ads just to stir up prospects without having real positions available." is painful to read. This used to…

Follow The Process

I have been reading some criticisms of Goal setting recently and some seemed valid such as a long term goal can, be anxiety provoking  all or nothing,too futuristic and not enough present orientation. In an article James Clear (www.jamesclear.com) wrote he believes it is best to forget about goal setting and focus on the process. That means concentrating on the journey not the destination. I am not advocating throwing out goal setting entirely because…

Is This Your Acre of Diamonds?

Your big opportunity may be right where you are now. | Napoleon Hill

Think about your twenty closest acquaintances. Statistics tell us that fifteen of them have something in common. They have a need that is going unmet. It's their pain point and they need help.

You probably can relate to them because you have been…

Empiricism Is A Scourge to Human Diversity!

To treat humans as data is not only unscientific and unethical but it also lays the foundation for dehumanization.

Human beings think and act subjectively and no amount of “physics envy” can change the natural law that humans are subjective beings in all ways that are worthy of scientific inquiry beyond just their physiology. Those who ignore this reality are unscientific. Those who try to impose the scientific method of empiricism (which is appropriate for the…
