Show Up, Rise up and Mean To Win

I heard Christina Tosi, the founder of a bakery called Milk Bar interviewed on the podcast “How I Built This.” (By the way, this podcast is a favorite.  The host Guy Raz interviews business leaders on how they and their businesses came to enjoy their success.  Almost every story will feature “where it almost failed” moments.  The “big break” moments, the “isn’t it coming” moments, the “dumb luck” moments.  Its great listening). Tosi pursued her […]

How To “Do” Life Better

How are you feeling today?  Excited – Bored – Hopeful – Hopeless – Dreadful – Engaged – Grateful -Resentful – Joyful. You can feel all sorts of ways. I had a friend who would spend half of her Sunday moaning that Sunday would end and she had to return to work on Monday.  I hope that’s not your reality. I read a quote today: “Changing what you think can change how you feel.” So often, […]

Keys To Success In Your Job

Welcome aboard new teammate.  We’re glad you’re here. This is a challenging job.  The work is outdoors and can be more physical then you are used to doing.  I hear that many people in their first days here discover muscles they didn’t know they had. But I think you will find us a little different than most employers in our field. We look for folks who want and need a chance.  The slate is clean.  […]

Confront Problems

Albert Einstein said: “A problem will never be solved at the same level it was created.” We don’t live in a problem free world, there is always something going on.   Einstein’s statement resonates with me. When we confront things that aren’t right, we should spend time defining the problem clearly, understanding the roots of it and considering it from all the angles. If you believe what Einstein says, the next step is to consider what […]

When You Know Something Needs To Happen, Don’t Delay

“Anything that needs to be done eventually should probably be done immediately.” –  Jeremy Foley, retired athletic director Univ. Of Florida Foley was talking about personnel decisions.  He had a policy of taking decisive action when it was called for. But Foley has a point.  I can remember several times in my work history where I “knew” some action needed to be taken and held off.  The action was mine to take, but I just […]

Attitude Begets Action

“The right attitude rarely produces the wrong action.” Put this thought about attitude to an internal assessment. Think about the last time you completed a “wrong” action.  How would you describe your attitude? Bored? Complacent? Fearful? Unfocused?  Lackadaisical?  Lazy? Distracted? Mad?  Bitter?  Vengeful? Greedy?  Selfish? Grieving?  Sad?  Hurting? The list is endless of negative feelings that affect our attitude.  Usually, the negatives take the wheel on the attitude and, before long, you’re heading in the […]

Actively Change To Make Your Life Better

How have you changed? Recently?  In the last year?  In the last decade? What caused the change?  Did things happen that caused the change?  Or did you select the change? What influences cause your change?  Things you read?  People you work alongside?  Bosses?  Teachers? Preachers?  Coaches?  Family? Are you working on change right now?  Is your change based on getting better by addition or getting better by subtraction? What will be the influences that cause […]

ARE YOU INSPIRING YOUR TEAM TO PULL IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION?

Ed Orgeron is the head coach of the Louisiana State University football team. He comes off as a rough, tough guy from Southern Louisiana and is not counted routinely among the elite coaches in the game.  He doesn’t exude the same polish or articulate the complexity many coaches describe. But currently they are the fourth ranked team in the country, and, in a recent interview, his players describe why he’s effective. It comes down to […]

HOW ARE YOU AS A LEADER?

I believe good leaders are like good teachers or good coaches. Good teachers and good coaches leave you better than they found you. They help you discover things you didn’t know.  New information.  New skills.  Stuff you didn’t know about yourself. When you’ve been under the influence of a good teacher, you discover your world is bigger than you thought.  The things you gain from being involved with the teacher create a hunger for more. […]
