Your Grand Opportunity to Serve

Your Grand Opportunity to Serve

  You’ve likely heard it countless times before. From American football, to military slogans, to Billy Ocean’s 1985 hit song.     Unfortunately, we’ve so often heard this phrase it’s become cliché- “When the going gets tough- the tough get going.” Well...

“OK Boomer” — “OK Millennial”

“OK Boomer” — “OK Millennial”

  On 6 November 2019, the phrase “Ok, Boomer” went viral due to a “Twitter War” between William Shatner (aka Captain Kirk, the “Priceline Guy,” and Denny Crane) and various opponents from, let’s say, ‘younger’ generations. Soon after, “Ok Boomer” and “Ok...

Getting sucked in…

Getting sucked in…

  If you fly much, you’re undoubtedly familiar with airline safety briefings. You know- how to buckle a seatbelt and stuff like that. My ‘second home’ is American Airlines. I can recite the script from their current safety recording almost word-for-word. While...

Getting through the day…

Getting through the day…

“If I can just get through the day…” Ever heard yourself [thinking] this? To what end? You might reply, “Well, if you were in my shoes, you’d ‘get it.'” You might even offer a few lines from a ‘cryin’ in your beer” Tom Petty song: “You don't know how it feels

What if?

What if?

What if THIS week, just for THIS week, you didn’t settle? What if you knew the precise change you sought to make? What if you CHOSE to do what’s necessary to make that change happen? What if you set aside the ‘urgent’ and instead focused upon what’s important? What if...

Perspective

Perspective

Take a look at the picture above. When I first saw it, I thought it perhaps a piece of art. Maybe a piece of pottery. Or perhaps some satellite image- a coastline with lighted ships offshore? What do you see? Initial impressions. We have (and make them) all the time....

Never Quit!

Never Quit!

The Chinese bamboo remains underground for 60 months- five years of unwitnessed effort, energy, and preparation. And at its perfect moment, this member of the grass family bursts forth into the light. It shoots skyward- up to three feet every 24 hours. Forty-five days...

Control the Context

Control the Context

When still a junior politician, Julius Caesar was captured by Sicilian pirates. According to the Greek biographer Plutarch, the pirates demanded a ransom of 20 talents of silver (about $600,000). Caesar’s context was a bit different. He felt he was worth more. He...

Let Your Swing Find You

Let Your Swing Find You

This past Saturday was gorgeous- a beautiful sunny morning at our hacienda in the Andes Mountains of Ecuador. Though we’re near the equator, our 10,000-foot elevation renders evenings a bit chilly. We love our fireplace! Ecuadorian friends keep us supplied with...
