    Next Vacation

    I like looking forward to vacation. It brings me pleasure. I think there’s value in always having a vacation on the calendar. I coach a lot of people who are too busy to schedule a vacation. They can’t do it before May because every week is already booked. They can’t do it May through August be...

    Leadership Questions

    Flipping through an old notebook I came across these questions: What will you make better in the world through your leadership? What is the highest purpose you can imagine for your leadership? We think we are who we are, but we are constantly evolving. The questions we ask and answer ultimate...

    Proximity of the Joneses

    We know we aren’t supposed to try to keep up with the Joneses. That that’s bad. And being enlightened people, we don’t. Because we’re good. Except when we’re not. And knowing how and when temptation or envy will strike helps to avoid mistakes. So know that the Joneses are more threatening when ...

    Your Future Advice

    Kathleen Taylor gives an interesting TED talk on her experience as a hospice worker and the lessons learned when, as she puts it, people reach the stage when they completely drop the bullshit.

    The Simplicity of Sales

    It comes down to a simple formula: Comfort + Momentum = Sale. Sales begins with relationship. We want to agree with people we like. We want to be around them. We want to buy what they are selling. We buy what we are comfortable with. But we are also distracted. We have too much stimulus. Too ma...

    Word for the Wise

    I would like to speak in favor of precision in our language. Let’s put in the effort to say what we actually mean, to be intelligent in our use of language.

    Pleasure In Pursuit

    Eastern philosophy often preaches the value of releasing desire as the key to happiness. We westerners don’t do so well with that. We like our goals. We enjoy attainment.
