How Do I Protect Myself From Manipulation?

A counseling professor told a woman in one of Larry’s lab groups, “Your tears don’t move me.” His words stunned the group, but the woman stopped crying. “Those were tears of frustration,” he explained. “They weren’t tears of brokenness.”

I’ve thought of that many times when someone’s tears haven’t moved me and wondered what was behind them. Crocodiles shed tears when…

4 Questions to Disruption-Proof Your Business



Hundreds of years ago aluminum was the most precious metal. If you visited a king and were really important you got the aluminum dishes. Gold or silver dishes were for those less important.

How 80/20 Changed My Consulting Business & Forced More Profits From Less Effort

About three years ago I sat bleary-eyed at my computer, overwhelmed with all the tech tactics that I was “supposed to be doing” to help my current clients... and the ones that were supposed to get more clients for my own business as well.

Every day felt like drinking from a firehose as I clamored for the latest article or conference call or paid course and quickly turning to implementation, which seemed difficult to manage, even with my team in place.

Everyone Goofs...Even Smart Business Owners

Did you watch the Academy Awards a few nights ago? Everyone is talking about how unfortunate it was to have announced the wrong winner for the Best Picture. It was unfortunate, but certainly not devastating, because everyone goofs sometime.

Of course, no one wants to wear egg on their face in public but I think it is a sign of transparency and just being human when we make a mistake, own up to it, and ask forgiveness if it has offended anyone. In fact, I tend to trust people who are…

Healthy Mouth, Healthy Heart

The common thread between gum disease and chronic health conditions is inflammation — the body’s natural response to an infection or injury. The build-up of inflammatory substances in the blood seems to worsen heart disease, diabetes, and other chronic conditions. Eliminating gum infection may reduce that harmful…

Rule Out the Obvious

Back when I worked in dermatology, we would send biopsies to the lab every day. We would write on the order to: “Rule out_ (suspected diagnosis)_”. Usually we had a pretty good idea of what we were dealing with but…

Your Shopping Cart, Your Personality

When it comes time to hire someone, a lot of employers will take an interviewee out to lunch or dinner.  If you didn’t know, this isn’t just to have a delicious burger that someone else is paying for.  It’s to see your table manners, to see how you treat the waiter or waitress, and to gauge your social and conversational skills.

 

Note to interviewees:  If at all possible, never order anything you have to eat with your hands nor anything with ‘extra sauce’.

 

But…

It takes more than a business plan to be successful



We’re told that one of the first steps in thinking about any new business is to write a business plan. Out of this you’ll get to see how viable (or not) the business you want to build is. Books and books are written on how to write a great business plan. I’ve even got some on my shelf.

The Entrepreneur & Civilization.

“It doesn’t happen that way!” is what his friend kept telling him. Whether it was dressing for a special occasion or helping a neighbor with a boundary issue or finding answers to some financial questions, none of these just happen on their own or are magically resolved externally. This is the difference between being active and being latent, and in a way, this is the difference between being ‘awake’ or being ‘asleep’.

What is civilization, where does it come from, and who is…

Is God Hiding From You?

My favorite games of “hide and seek” took place at night with my older cousins at a friend’s log cabin on the marsh. The smell of salt air, twinkling lightening bugs, and the moon shining over the water created a magical setting for our childhood fun. The goal was to hide so well the seeker would give up looking for you.

When Hebrews says God “rewards those who earnestly seek him” (11:6) we may picture a game of “hide and seek.” But God is not hiding from…
