YOU CAN MAKE IT

It’s hard to know what’s coming… Predictions range from “we will be fine sooner than we think” to “it will be a long time before things are good again.” Those most pessimistic among us are predicting things will never be the same and that doomsday lies ahead. Here’s a note I sent to my family today: Stay nimble. Keep your head up. Be a helper. The only way out is through. The toughest change to […]

NEWS IN PERSPECTIVE

Here’s what we do under stress. We have a “higher event awareness.” That means we will tend to evaluate events out of context. We take a “good report” and make it “better news” than it really is. We also take a “bad report” and make it “worse news” than it is. In this journey, there will be good news and bad news. Let’s ratchet back our reactions either way. Seek to put news in perspective.

THIS TOO SHALL PASS

   “Every storm runs out of rain.” – Maya Angelou It’s probably too early in this crisis to be looking to the end of it, but I love this quote by Maya Angelou. It reminds us to stay in the moment because we know there is relief in the future. We can hang for the time because it’s not going to persist. This crisis can feel personal because we are all challenged in […]

CORE DYNAMICS OF A THRIVING CULTURE

“Culture is dynamic, not static. Every person on your team and organization creates your culture each day by what you all think, say and do. You can elevate it by what you think. You can improve it by what you say. And you can make it great by what you do!” – Jon Gordon I highly recommend Jon Gordon as an author. His books are short, insightful and inspirational. Let’s break down his statement. “Culture […]

YOU ARE VALUED AND APPRECIATED

I don’t say thank you enough: You show up daily; you set your mind to work safe. You make hundreds of decisions that contribute to us achieving the very small margin that determines our success. You train new people how to perform well. You encourage colleagues to step up to standards. You’re a model to all you encounter. We couldn’t make it without your encouragement. You hang tough in all kinds of weather. When it’s […]

THINK OF PRESSURE AS A GIFT

“Pressure is a privilege. If you’re under pressure, it means someone cares what you are doing.” – Billie Jean King, Hall of Fame tennis pro. Most of us regard “pressure” to be a dirty word. We associate it with tension, nerves, and headaches. I know there are times where the pressures of the day seem so intense that I’d do anything just to relax and kick back. But King’s quote reminds me that to live […]

Good Life Bucket List

Are you living a good life? I ran across a podcast called The Good Life Project. The host of the podcast is an author and speaker named Jonathan Fields. He compiles stories and research about how the mind works and how people do things to improve the quality of life. Fields is careful to distinguish that “good” doesn’t mean a life that is “happy,” “rich,” or “easy.” In a recent podcast, he describes a “good” […]

SPOTTING TRAITS OF A BAD LEADER

Bad bosses. Bad parents. Bad spouses. Bad leaders. Bad teammates. All of them do these four things: Defend – If they can take feedback the wrong way, they do. They turn genuine conversation into a fight. They aren’t open to engagement. They turn getting facts on the table off by pushing back at the first words that sound negative to them. Criticize – Words of praise don’t come out of their mouths. They see things […]

Backing Up to Go Forward

Progress means getting nearer to the place you want to be. And if you have taken a wrong turning, then to go forward does not get you any nearer. If you are on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road.” – C.S. Lewis Are you on the right road? Lewis underscores… Going faster. Staying longer. Flailing your arms won’t help you progress if you’re on the wrong […]

LOVE: THE GREATEST OF ALL

Valentine’s Day celebrates love. Here’s my favorite piece of literature regarding the topic. “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.” – […]
