THE BENEFITS OF SETTING GOALS

I recently read that “hope” is a skill.    Candidly, never thought of hope as a skill.  Maybe an attitude.  Maybe wishful.  But not skill.    But someone broke it down this way:   Hope happens when we set goals.    Setting goals directs our view to the future.  Gives you a target.  Refines your focus.  It’s the first step toward building a future.    Hope happens when you have the tenacity and perseverance to pursue the goals.   There’s a […]

SIGNIFICANT EVENTS AND RELATIONSHIPS

Henry Cloud uses a powerful image of a boat’s wake to describe a way to evaluate how we conduct life. On one side, the wake represents “relationships.”  On the other side, the wake represents “results.” A quote attributed to many is: “We are the sum total of our relationships.”   Many of the defining events in our life are defined by a relationship.  Someone taught us.  Coached us.  Loved us.  Forgave us.  Saw some potential in us.  Trusted us.  Encouraged us.  Gave us a chance.  Gave us […]

We can be sitting in a pew at church and be inspired. We can read a book, see the sunrise and/or admire a colleague’s effort and be inspired. But, the quote above captures it.  Inspiration […]

ENGAGED WORKFORCE/CUSTOMER SATISFACTION

There is a business theory that says if a company focuses on building an “engaged” workforce, the bottom line will take care of itself. There is another theory that says if a company focuses on the “customer” and provides superior customer satisfaction, the bottom line will take care of itself. A study was done recently to attempt to figure out which theory carries more weight.  The answer turns out not to be “either/or.” It is […]
