    Blameless Problem Solving and Self-Accountability

    No one likes to cause an issue, be wrong, be behind on a project or deal with the fallout. But part of blameless problem solving is self-accountability.

    Self-accountability is the ability to be honest with yourself, as well as being answerable and responsible for what you say and do. To do so, when something goes wrong, you need to step out of the moment and consider consequences of how you respond. It means that … Read More

  • The Older You Get, the Less You Know

    The Older You Get, the Less You Know

    What? Really. What I mean is that as you gain experience you realize how much you don't know and become (hopefully) more comfortable admitting it. We all experience conversations where the other person tells you they know about something or someone, but is or becomes clear they don't. You see this more in younger or less experienced people, but anyone can do it.

    Most times it comes from … Read More

  • Focus on Doing Good Work, Not Money

    Focus on Doing Good Work, Not Money

    You are saying "What? But I want to work to make money." We all work to be able to support ourselves. What I mean is if you focus on doing the best you can, the money likely will follow. If you only focus on money you will try to close deals that shouldn't close or sell something to someone that they don't need. If you are okay with that and the bad karma you deserve, you should take a look in the mirror and see … Read More

    In Real Life You Shouldn’t be Keeping Score

    Don't be envious of others. Just because you think they have a better title or seem to have more money doesn't mean it’s true. The person you view as a "higher up" may hate the position they are in. The person who seems to have money may be living on debt. Not making assumptions is a topic for another day. 

    Similarly, don't be vindictive. Don't try to get even. If you really analyze a situation where … Read More

  • Don’t Let Your Communication be an Illusion, Communicate to be Understood!

    Don’t Let Your Communication be an Illusion, Communicate to be Understood!

    Communication is a singular important matter in all contacts between people. But it does not always happen in a way leading to understanding on the same level between the participants in the conversation. This is highlighted by a quote that I like:  The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place - George Bernard Shaw

    Do the people you communicate with understand what … Read More

    Live in Today with an Eye for Tomorrow

    Life is long. You will work for a long time. There is no winning instantly. Success takes time. What you do each day matters for your future. The big picture makes living for today essential, which means having a plan and working it. By doing so you really are playing for the future, and for your first taste of, or your continuing, success.

    The person you do a favor for today will help you tomorrow. The client … Read More

  • Be Informed

    Be Informed

    Everywhere I look these days people are arguing. At least it feels that way. About politics.  About the environment. About issues big and small.

    I have written before about how important it is to be an active listener. When I listen I hear a lot of people simply parroting what others say without any independent thought. Or worse, they are speaking about something they clearly have no idea about.

    I … Read More

  • Are You All In?

    Are You All In?

    We all know the saying “You are either all in or all out.” The meaning of this phrase is obvious, but when you think about it, it applies to all situations in business  or your personal life.  

    In your personal life, if you spend your time with your kids or significant other connected to a device, email, etc. they will know they don’t have your full attention, which means you are … Read More
