  • Do You Perform Well Under Pressure?

    Do You Perform Well Under Pressure?

    When the heat is on, how do you perform? Can you remain calm? Can you focus on the task at hand? Or do you crack under pressure? Or maybe you take out your stress on those around you? If so, you need to find ideas and tools to remain calm and focus, like Shaun White did last night. 

    On February 13th, I watched him win his third Olympic gold medal in the snowboard halfpipe competition in the last four … Read More

  • Be Persistent and Believe in Yourself

    Be Persistent and Believe in Yourself

    Believing in yourself sounds easy, but we all have our own insecurities to overcome in given situations. Sometimes the easiest road is to fold and not move forward. Taking the easy way generally is the path to things staying the same or getting worse, but we all say we want to do better and be successful. I think part of the reason is persistence. Some people have it and some people don’t. For those who do, … Read More

  • Be Authentic

    Be Authentic

    Be you. Not who you think you should be. Not what others want you to be. Be you, just you. You are not an actor or actress, you're not playing a role. If you do, you're doing yourself a disservice.   

    Less experienced people are more likely to embellish their experience or tell you they know something they don’t. They want others to think they know more than they do and have greater … Read More

  • Get Out of Your Comfort Zone

    Get Out of Your Comfort Zone

    The same old, same old is the same as becoming stagnant. Said differently: don’t be a stick in the mud! Try to do something new a couple times a year to take you out of your comfort zone. What it is depends on you.  

    Maybe it’s trying something new, like hiking or Pilates. Maybe it’s attending a class or conference on a subject that interests you but has nothing to do with your career, … Read More

  • Get Enough Sleep

    Get Enough Sleep

    This seems so obvious, yet most of us don’t. You might; I know I generally don’t. I try, but so much to do and so little time…

    I read something that said adults generally need at least seven hours of sleep per night until the age of 60, after which most people need more. It seems like that should be easy, but it’s not always so simple. When you are busy at work (including the time spent … Read More

  • Turn Your New Year’s Resolution into a SMART Goal for a Better Chance to be Successful

    Turn Your New Year’s Resolution into a SMART Goal for a Better Chance to be Successful

    It is the first week of January. We all are back at work trying to recover from the holidays as the new year kicks into high gear out of the gate. Many of you likely made New Year’s resolutions. It could be one of the standards such as losing a certain amount of weight, starting an exercise program, drinking less soda, eating less candy, etc. Maybe it is something different and more personal to you. Or maybe … Read More

  • Never Underestimate the Handwritten Thank You

    Never Underestimate the Handwritten Thank You

    Most of you remember when “the usual” was sending anything and everything by mail. People do things for you, oftentimes going out of their way, all the time. Do you acknowledge these people? If not, why not? If so, how? 

     

    If someone does something meaningful, you need to let them know. I understand not all people are doing things to receive thanks, or even comfortable with praise at all. … Read More

  • Travel Extensively and Meet People

    Travel Extensively and Meet People

    Make travel your norm. We all need to take breaks from work and recharge. If you wait for when you have more time or retire, that time may never come. Or maybe you will retire one day, but be physically unable to go to the places you always hoped and planned to. This is part of work/life balance. 

    When you travel, immerse yourself in local culture and places. Attempt to meet (hopefully interesting) locals to … Read More

  • An Arizona Insurer Owes No Duty to Pay the "Undisputed Amount" of a UM or UIM Claim

    An Arizona Insurer Owes No Duty to Pay the "Undisputed Amount" of a UM or UIM Claim

    Although the Arizona Court of Appeals resolved this issue 20 years ago, I frequently see insureds' counsel argue that an insurer must pay the "undisputed amount" of a UM or UIM claim—and I just saw this argument last week—so this post is a refresher.

    The Holding

    In Voland v. Farmers Ins. Co. of Arizona, 189 Ariz. 448, 453, 943 P.2d 808, 813 (App. 1997), the Arizona Court of Appeals held "the … Read More
