I'd like to spend about five hours with you. Now, you might think it's impossible because there are so many of you and just one of me. Just imagine, however, how that five hours might go. First, I'd want to know a little bit about you and what makes you tick. I'm sure coffee would make its way into the conversation, as well. I'd probably jump into basic coaching questions in order to learn something about your hopes and…Continue

A few years ago, I attended a conference designed to help me monetize my self-published books. Though the tips were great, the end results were dismal. My book sales didn't skyrocket. Having my book available on Amazon didn't catapult it to a best sellers list. In short, it didn't work. My content didn't perform as I expected.
I've had conversations with other entrepreneurs who have had similar experiences. Their…Continue

There are underlying laws in the physical world, such as gravity, and these are discovered and mastered by objective methods. Despite gravity the eighty or so hot air balloons at the National Balloon Classic in Indianola, Iowa took flight and bedazzled the onlookers and spectators, not because they know how to stop gravity but because they had the materials and the skills to use other physical laws within the confines of the atmosphere to offset the force of…Continue

You may be surprised, but job satisfaction plays an important role in improving your mental outlook and physical health.
So why wouldn’t we seek a fulfilling job? Is there anything to gain by enduring a working life of discontent, just waiting for the weekend?

Delta's computer shutdown and subsequent loss of service for virtually everyone in their system is common. Not the specifics but the idea that a small issue cripples an entire operation. Delta is experiencing a problem very…Continue
Anyone who has worked with me knows one of the fundamental principles of the Today’s the Day plan is taking what I refer to as “baby steps.” That’s just making one small change consistently over time. I’ve talked about…Continue

1. Stepping back encourages REFLECTION.
