A few weeks ago I wrote a post about what to do if you’re unable to dream about the kind of work you’d love. Yet, what if you’ve discovered work you think you’ll enjoy but can’t bring yourself to go after?…Continue

Doing it for God?
When a person feels like they have found their calling they often feel like that’s what God has put them on earth to do. We feel like we need to do this for God. I believe that our calling is a wonderful gift from God, but a lot of times we make that our god. We use our calling to define our identity and not who we are as Christians, sons of God. We as men, especially, shape our whole life around our work. We look to our calling to bring us happiness,…Continue

Fortune favors the prepared mind.

How many times have you seen a well-executed idea and thought "man, I wish I had thought of that!" or "hey, they took my idea!"
Ideas are a dime a dozen - if you are…Continue

Have you ever worked for a toxic work environment? It's usually apparent by noticing the employees and the tension upon entering the hallowed halls. Sometimes an entire industry shares the same atmosphere. It's a cold vibe that exists when an organization is built upon profit and greed.Continue
Once I understood the history and reasoning of fear the Industrial Age uses to control and leverage the common man; life has become less stressful. I no longer feel like a victim or sacrificial guinea pig. The tactics that once wrecked my day are just a speed bump in my rearview mirror. The power, I once allowed to rule my thoughts, decisions and health (while constantly wondering: "Why would you do that to someone"); no…Continue
Forbes.com just posted an article by Meghan Casserly that says "respect", or rather a lack there of, is among the top 5 reasons your employees will try to leave in 2013. Ms. Casserly quotes Brian Kropp, Managing Director at CEB who conducted a survey of 50,000 employees, as follows:
R-E-S-P-E-C-T is new to the top five list this year…Continue

Over the past 25 years I’ve helped countless co-workers, supervisors, fellow-students, my own students, friends, and family figure out what to include in a resume. I’ve also personally helped a few dozen people get hired based on a resume we wrote or rewrote together.
After researching what works today (as part of updating my own resume), I decided it was time…Continue
Many will say ... "if only I could go back and ..." But I'm finding that one of the blessing of children and teaching is that you do get to go back.
If you really could go back in time, same set of circumstances, same knowledge, do you really think you would change…Continue
I want the kind of passion I see in my husband when he is doing something new in programming. He is excited. He wants to "work". I am still looking for my passion. I am interested in doing a little bit of this and trying a little bit of that but I don't know what I am really passionate about. What can I do well enough that I wouldn't consider work?
I used to think that I needed to get an education and the jobs will be there. Needless to say my education did not bring jobs to me on a…Continue
The problem with freedom
I know it sounds strange, that a problem would exist if you are free. I believe that we, as Americans, have a problem with freedom. The problem is that we do now know how to live free! We say we want freedom of speech, freedom from an oppressive government, freedom in our finances, freedom to do work we love, freedom of religion and so…Continue
I think it is safe to say that we all see and hear things on occasion that make us stop and think for a second. Things that briefly remind us of our lives and what we are doing (or not) to be happy and successful. The question is what do we do with that when it happens?
If your answer is “not much”, then that makes you normal. Same here for most of my life. But somewhere along the line, I…Continue

This past Sunday, I directed a music video for the Des Moines, Iowa based musician H.D. Harmsen. The song has a feel of depression area vaudevillian fun. The video was inspired by films like Stardust Memories by…Continue
