How to Create a Ruckus

The back cover of Seth Godin's Poke the Box  features a paragraph we all should read daily…

We're waiting for the one who explores, creates and makes a ruckus. We need you to poke the system and see what happens, to learn from it, to adjust and to repeat.

The dictionary defines ruckus as a disturbance or…

Goodbye Cubicle Nation

I received a new lease on life when I job was eliminated at cubicle nation. Quite some time ago, I underwent a metamorphosis of sorts toward my own work mindset.

For years, I questioned why anyone would want to treat their employees poorly. I just couldn't comprehend the concept.

Living on the Edge of Freedom?

For some reason about a week ago, I realized by blogging was suffering. Sometimes it was due to rushing to post an article and tossing some ideas out to quickly. I took a few days off from blogging hoping my writing process would become fresh again. After all, attempting to post material daily isn't as easy as it appears.

You are Amazing!

Less than 24 hours ago, I opened my email and thought "What is going on?" As my Grandfather use to say, "Lo' and Behold" – I had 4 pages of Hotmail from members of Bloggers.com addressed in my inbox. My first thoughts were perhaps my settings had somehow changed and I accidently opened myself to spam.

You are Now Free!

One of the favorite terms of the Industrial Age has been "teamwork." The word is heavily touted when the slave drivers or gatekeepers want more work from less people or pitch an idea. Teamwork is a requirement on the football field, marching band and battlefield; but it never scaled well with the general workforce.

Want to be part of a team or better yet; a real cause?…

Book Review- The Icarus Deception: how high will you fly?

The Icarus Deception by Seth Godin is the push to do what you've always wanted. It's the approval to become what you've always dreamed of becoming. The Icarus Deception allows you the freedom to scale to new heights. Unlike the previous system of 100 years, it's imperative you break the rules and stand-out.

The Future is up to You!

We've spent 100 years schooling our children and selves into becoming a "cog in the wheel" for the system. We created compliance by asking students to memorize a formula of history, math and science. Instead of recognizing the interests of the people- the system set the agenda.

Are you an artist or just a compliant cog?

Failing, Losing and Winning

We shoot someone's hope, dream and possible future down quickly. If everyone followed our own fearful advice, there'd be no electricity, surgeons, automobiles, medicine, clean water or technical device to read this blog.

Some good advice about seeking sources for advice.

Surveys- The Art of telling a Story?

For decades we wondered why survey results were somewhat hidden criteria. Scratching our heads wondering why the obvious issues weren't addressed. Why employ consultants to be the middle man, wouldn't a standard form be worthy? If some glaring issues needed to be resolved surely management could correct the situation.

Raw Opportunity Surrounds Us!

Our eyes observe all sorts of activity daily in our surrounding. Choices are constantly marketed as we drive, walk, or journey through media channels. We are so busy ingesting the messages, we often don't think to use our own imagination or envision a possibility towards the future. Visionaries like Zig Ziglar, Henry Ford, Bill Gates, or Steve Jobs are few and far between.

The Difference Makers!

Several days ago, I wrote a blog about the apparent political choices inducing a negative outcome between government, employers and employees. The day after the election some companies began to introduce massive layoffs and/ or the reduction of full-time jobs with benefits. I failed to cover some obvious positive possibilities during that blog due to time constraints. So let's talk about the upside to another seemingly down-economy.…

Breaking News: How would you like your Spam?

Spam is something we are all familiar with as we check our email or scroll through the web. It's annoying, noisy and begs us for attention. The message is optimized to separate us for a brief moment from our agenda to focus on something entirely different and convince us of the significance of "the sell."

Goal or Project- What are you planning?

There are some of us who find it better to take things one day at a time. It helps to keep us grounded in who we are and what we do. The less we forecast the better off our mind's function.

The Problem of Mass- Just ask General Motors!

We’ve seen the history of mass during the Industrial Revolution. In the form of: production, factories, transportation, food, retailers, riots, consumption, start-ups, dotcoms, healthcare, layoffs, moving overseas and closures. Anyone see a mass pattern here?
