Cowardice and Courage for Front Line Leaders

Cowardice and courage are obvious before and during battle.  In 1991, I witnessed another 1st Lieutenant back out of mission that I later volunteered for as a result of his cowardice.

In another part of the battlefield, I had a friend dismount from his tank and walk his platoon through a minefield while under enemy fire.  That act of courage earned him a Silver Star.  Those examples of cowardice and courage are easy to identify.

But, cowardice and courage in the…

Confessions of a food stamper

Photo Credit: Wonderlane

The last five years have changed me.

Before 2007 I cannot say I spent much time worrying about the basics. Food, mortgage, car payments and utilities came [relatively] easy. I will spare the gory details. Let us just say that what took me three years to build took the following three years to lose.

In the fall of 2010 I blew the dust off my nursing license, and took…

Think Forward

Paul was a greedy thief. He was
Bounty hunter paid to find Christians
and take them to prison. Because
of his testimony against them,
they would be executed.
He personally had the Apostle
Stephen killed. The scales of
injustice weighed heavily against
him, yet, after his conversion, he…

How Happy Are You?

Is the glass half empty or half full? Last night on Oprah's Life Class she did a Twitter Poll, asking people if they were happy. They were instructed to tweet back YES or NO. Seventy something percent of the response was NO. What is wrong with us?

What about you, are you happy? Would…

But I Only Lost 1 Pound!

How many times have you either heard someone say this, or perhaps even said this yourself, “I’ve only lost 1 pound!” You have been dieting for weeks, working out consistently, and doing everything within your power to lose weight, but in your eyes you aren’t seeing the results. Let’s say, you have ONLY lost 1 pound.

Take a look at this picture. That is what a pound of fat looks like. All the work you have been doing got that pile of goo out of your body. The truth may be that you have…

Light the Fire underneath You

My family and I like go to Lake Hartwell sometimes during the summer with some friends of ours who happen to have a lake house and a pontoon boat sitting on a dock. We always have a great time, swimming, boating, tubing, jumping off the docks, and just being crazy. I feel like a kid again, when I’m in these types of environments; especially where there is water!

So it was the summer of 2011,…

Square peg in a round hole.

Some say you can not put a square peg in a round hole. Well I guess it all depends on the size of the round hole and the size of the square peg! 

I actually do understand that there are practical application to the statement that are very insightful, just thought I would add some creative thinking…

The Measure of Happiness in Success

There are several different ways success is measured in our society.  We have those who see a certain financial status as success.   Others who have obtain a particular status level in their career. While others, who have accomplished a particular goal or milestone. 

All these levels of success are good levels of measure but reality sets in.  You have reached your particular level, now what?  Are you eternally happy?  Have you reached the top? Do we have to strive for another level in…

Start A Cash Mob Now

Start A Cash Mob Now

What the heck is a Cash Mob? Well, here's the skinny on Cash Mob or Cash Mobs. They are very simply shopping events organized mostly online to support local businesses. Here is how it works.

New Leaders On New Teams: 5 Key Steps

I started my first team from scratch and it took us over two years to hit our stride.  My second team had a mix of experienced and novice members on it.  We took about a year to begin to fire on all cylindars.  The next team was pieced together from other teams.  The individuals were all tenured and successful but most had not worked together before. We hit our stride quickly.

The way a leader launches into leadership with a new team can often determine that team’s trajectory…

I'm Learning To Adjust

It has been two weeks since my Pretzel baby went to heaven.  He was my wonderful miniature dachshund, and he was 15 ½ years old when he died.  My life has changed.  I constantly expect to see him come around the corner or smile up at me (and YES, he knew how to smile!) when I opened the door.  I am constantly thinking, “I need to get home and let Pretzel outside to potty.”  Then I realize that is no longer the case, and a feeling of sadness hits.  I am adjusting, though.  I asked a friend,…

Spring Has Sprung -- Or something like that!

Michael, my husband, suggested I write about how nice it is to see spring enter our lives.  Doesn’t that sound like a great idea?  It would be a great idea if I had a clue what else to add to that sentence.  Yes, the Japanese Maple tree in our front yard has put on red leaves, and it is really quite attractive.  The hydrangeas are starting to produce leaves, and I am hoping they will actually produce flowers, for a change!  Other than that, I’m really not much of a weather person.  I like…
