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
You...

Same as it ever was…

Same as it ever was…

  Released in 1981, “Once in a Lifetime” by The Talking Heads offered an interesting refrain: Same as it ever wasSame as is ever wasSame as it ever was… (repeat 5 or 6 more times) Latest research reveals most people have pretty much the same thoughts each day. In...

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...

20/20 Vision

20/20 Vision

For many of us, this is the first “work” day of the new year…of the new decade for that matter. For those of us who choose to make it so, 2020 will be a turning point. A chance to decide what’s important and worth working for. A chance not for ‘resolution’, but for...

Resolution or Commitment?

Resolution or Commitment?

I'm on vacation until next year. We've been traveling through Ecuador, currently in Banos. Day after tomorrow we're moving onto Mindo, where we'll celebrate the entrance of 2020 with fireworks and effigies. Since mostly what I do is work (a bunch), I made a commitment...

How to Change the World (one simple step)

How to Change the World (one simple step)

Historian Will Durant often wrote that despite tremendous growth in knowledge over 5,000 years of human history, wisdom is little changed. Small wonder. The latest research in neuroscience reveals that 90 percent of the thoughts each of us has every day are the same....

Learning to Read

Learning to Read

When’s the last time you read a book? You know, a book that might teach you something, give you new perspective or insight, make you a better leader, a better influencer, a better…person? For many, it’s been FAR too long. Don’t like to ‘read’? With available tech,...

Serial Reciprocity

Serial Reciprocity

I decided to pay for the Starbucks order for the person in the car behind me. It seemed like a cool thing to do. I found out later that the chain of ‘paying it forward’ at that drive-through window continued for over four hours before someone broke it. More than 60...

If you could kick the person…

If you could kick the person…

  Got problems? Easy to blame, isn’t it? To point fingers, call names, get angry. Even to feel like kicking someone. After all, it’s obviously their fault- your boss’s, your husband’s, your wife’s, the ex’s, your kids’, the government’s, the Universe… Reality?...

That Could’ve Been Me

That Could’ve Been Me

As my wife Suzette and our son Corey battled through a game of Angry Birds on her Kindle, I stared out my window from the seat behind them. It was May. Viet Nam was hot- drenched in humidity. Much of the 2-hour train ride from Hanoi to Haiphong sliced through sunken...

Those Who Change the World

Those Who Change the World

In 1543, Nicolaus Copernicus published his work on heliocentrism (the earth revolves around the sun). It was mostly disregarded. At the time, the earth was believed to be the center of everything. After all, it was home to…human beings! In 1632 (89 years later), the...

Are you Annoyed?

Are you Annoyed?

Are there things or people that annoy you? Most of us have ‘em. Allowing yourself to be annoyed is a side-effect of something you (or someone else) is thinking, feeling, or doing. You tell yourself a story.You push hard against it. You allow [whatever it is] to grow,...

If today was the last day of your life…

If today was the last day of your life…

Will today’s ‘emergency’- whatever’s currently demanding your focus and causing stress- even be remembered? Will that ‘thing’ you’re particularly anxious about [truly] have been worth the time you put into it? Better question: What could you do today that [might]...

Be Unreasonable

Be Unreasonable

I can still hear Mom saying, “You don’t have any common sense!” And for that I’ve been forever grateful. Not that she said it. But that I’ve truly had little (if any). Common sense is defined as…sound practical judgment concerning everyday matters- the basic ability...

Open the Cookies

Open the Cookies

Put a bag of cookies in the break room and it might sit for days. After all- it takes guts to go first…to tear open the bag. Open the bag and leave it out.Within an hour, all the cookies will be gone. Why? Because it’s now ‘okay’- Consent granted,behaviors...

If it doesn’t scare you…

If it doesn’t scare you…

25 years ago, I’d drive a mile and a half beyond Kmart to get to the Walmart. 10 years ago, we’d pass Walmart on our way to Target. Today? We don’t go anywhere. Amazon brings stuff to us. Change can be wonderful. It can also be tough. Think ‘change’ is hard?Try...

The Best Time to Plant a Tree

The Best Time to Plant a Tree

When’s the best time to plant a tree? 25 years ago. When’s the second-best time? NOW. What are you doing to make a difference… TODAY? Comments? Until next time,

When Your WHY Gets BIGGER…

When Your WHY Gets BIGGER…

When will a person do the ‘right thing’…even when no one’s watching? Whether it’s you, me, or anyone…only when we WANT to. Our performance, our ‘human performance’ is WHY we do WHAT we do the WAY we do it. Most leaders tend to focus upon WHAT people do (‘outcomes’ or...

Your Fosbury Flop

Your Fosbury Flop

In ancient Greece, a pole was placed across two pillars. Men were required to jump over it as a test of military readiness. What became known as the “high jump” turned into a competition in the early Greek Olympics. The first documented record (in the early 1800s) was...

Achilles, Superman, & Popeye

Achilles, Superman, & Popeye

What do Achilles, Superman, and Popeye have in common? They all had superpowers, and…they all had weaknesses. For Achilles, it was the area above his heel. Superman? Kryptonite. And Popeye the Sailorman?  Take away his spinach and he was toast. You and I have...

Being a Cheerleader

I need it.You need it.We all need it. Especially when things get hard-when they don’t go as planned when our uphill trek appears insurmountable. Not quitting,not giving up…even in the midst of a tear or two,often depends upon the support and encouragement of others.  ...

Accountability & Responsibility

Which is more important- “accountability” or “responsibility”? Accountability is INTERNAL. YOU are the only one who can ‘hold you accountable’ for…anything. Responsibility is EXTERNAL. It’s typically assigned by others or by the ‘system’. Accountability is OWNERSHIP-...

Legacy

With our world so rapidly changing- transforming and rearranging- it can get hard to know which way to go How should I do? What might I say? In all the decisions I gotta make today? It’s hard to pick much harder to see ‘cause the Why’s I Choose can become legacy....

Let go of the Leash

With great power comes great responsibility. The more you acquire- the more you inherit. And as responsibility goes up, so does the need to control…right? Wrong. The highest and best form of efficiency comes through the spontaneous cooperation of a “free” workforce....

Choices (Part 2)

You make CHOICES.  Lots of them. Some are hard.  Some are easy. Some are made for the short-term. Others consider the long-term. The thing is- the short-term and long-term consequences of the CHOICES you make are typically different…and often opposite. For example,...

CHOICES (Part 1)

Monday, 24 December, 2018 CHOICES (Part I) To do…Not to do…To start…To ignore…To delay, abandon, or…forge onward. Put your CHOICES together- all of ‘em. Together, they’ve brought you (good and bad) to wherever you are at this moment…reading these words. It doesn’t get...

LEADERSHIP is a Choice…

Everything in life is a CHOICE. Like whether (or not) you choose to LEAD. While people might listen to what you say-they’re absolutely paying attention to what you DO. And the higher your name on the chart…the more people are watching. Leadership is a CHOICE…not a...

Good Enough

Essential understandings of Next-Gen Human Performance are identified as “Key Insights”. Number 25 in the Human Performance LEADERSHIP™ Course is: High performance requires tight tolerances It’s discussed when creating a team Code of Honor. But, here’s the thing…...

Culture Determines Results

Plant a mango tree, what do you get?  Mangoes. Grow and tend tomatoes?  Tomatoes. No mystery here- everyone gets this. The tougher question… Why do some trees, vines and plants yield lots of quality, while others produce little- even under the same external...

All progress begins…

Doesn’t matter how senior (or junior) you are. Doesn’t matter whether you’re communicating with team members, clients, or shareholders… Doesn’t matter whether you’re a supervisor challenging a scheduler, or department head reporting results or explaining why things...

Lesson From Wimbledon

Last year (2017), 3-time trophy-winner Novak Djokovic left Wimbledon during his quarter-final with an injured right elbow.  He needed surgery. A wounded elbow…surgery…rehabilitation…physical therapy. Many figured Djokovic was finished. But not Novak. This past...

Cheap Shower Curtains

Let’s say you’re outfitting a new 300-room hotel. The “Bean Counters” discover they can save $45 per room by buying cheap shower curtains.  Multiply that times 300…you’re talking some serious bucks. Those in charge of saving money have been Efficient.  They’ve done a...

Freedom & Independence

For those in the US- Wednesday is Independence Day. For me, the Fourth of July has always been the peak of the summer season. American flags on every pole, fried chicken, burgers, macaroni salad…the whole bit.  I’ve always loved it. When you consider this experiment...

Enlightenment

I used to think “enlightenment” was a point of ‘arrival’…a state to be acquired…when you’re finally able to grasp the “Big Picture”. A destination many seek- yet VERY few ever attain. As it turns out- enlightenment (like so many other important things) isn’t a...

Are you playing to win?

Suzette and I were driving back to our hotel after finishing up a workshop in Phoenix, Arizona. The Colts-Patriots AFC Divisional Playoff game was on the radio. The game was a classic battle between rivals…and two of the best quarterbacks ever- Manning & Brady....

Up…or Out?

The most important lesson I learned from Boy Scouts: Always leave your campsite better than you found it. So profound because the lesson applies to far more than respect for nature and carrying out your trash. In fact, it applies to…everything. Do you leave things...

Get Serious

I flew from Brussels to Heathrow last Saturday- the day Meghan and Prince Harry got married. We flew over Windsor in our approach to Heathrow just after 8:30 that morning. Though the ceremony wasn’t til noon, a few thousand cheerful Brits already lined the parade...

Where Life Begins

Devote yourself to something important? Something helpful? When you’re beyond ‘checking the box’- when you bend the curve to make an impact- It isn’t easy. It’s not comfortable. That’s because it matters. There’s a reason they call it the “comfort zone”. And at its...

Achieving Orbit

Showing up is simple. Even taking the first step- often a ‘no brainer’. It’s what comes just after that’s HARD. 80 percent of the energy required to put a rocket into orbit is consumed in its first foot off the launch pad. Pushing the button is easy. Maintaining orbit...

Asking the Right Questions

In his play “As You Like It”, William Shakespeare wrote: “All the world’s a stage and all men are merely players. They have their exits and their entrances, and one man, in his time, plays many parts.” Of course…this applies to women too. What’s YOUR role? What part...

Your Calling

You could’ve been born anywhere- under any circumstance. You took your beginning, dealt with what came after, and made yourself into what you are at this moment. Ever wonder why you’ve ended up where you are, doing what you do? You have talents the world needs. Where...

Service Over Self-Interest

One of the best ways YOU can make things better, no matter how large (or small) your sphere of influence, is to take the LEAD. If a floor needs to be swept- sweep it. If a piece of code needs fixing- fix it. If a report needs to be written- write it. A true leader is...

You Were Born to do What Can’t Be Done

It’s time to wake up…and speak up. Being timid serves no one. The world NEEDS what you have to offer. You were born to do what can’t be done. Do what you can’t. Do it TODAY. Until next time… Be BOLD. Be SAFE. Be EXCEPTIONAL. Until next week, Tim autrey Founder/CEO...

CHOICE

Some days are easy and wonderful. Others…not so much. However, I know I always have a CHOICE in my attitude- no matter what. So do you. Optimism is Empowering. Pessimism is neutering. If you’d like a bit of a lift for the week- CHECK THIS OUT. (Be warned- you’ll...

I Will…

Ever found yourself saying, “I’ll try”? It’s a total cop out. It implies ZERO commitment. Perhaps that’s why its use is epidemic. Wanna blow people’s minds? Next time you’re asked to do something, either say “No”, or respond with “I will.” And when you say “I...

What are You Willing to Tolerate?

For decades I’ve been teaching- You’re only gonna get out of life what you’re willing to put in, and What gets [positively] recognized gets repeated But here’s another twist entirely. You get out of life exactly what you’re willing to tolerate....

BE the Example

No matter your role, title, or the size of your paycheck, you can make things better. How? By BEING the change you seek. In this era of mediocrity, where so many say one thing while doing another- STAND consistent…BE exceptional. It doesn’t matter where your name...

The Best Time to Plant a Tree

25 years ago. And the variety you plant is crucial. If you’re looking for speed, the Albizzia in Malaysia has been known to gain 1.1 inches in height per day. Your focus may be different: strength, clear grain, fruit production, or perhaps- the amount of shade it will...

Time To Serve

I’m a Patriots Fan. Last night’s game was great to watch. High-scoring. Lots of action. Up to the two-minute warning I anticipated the score would tip…that “my team” would win. It didn’t. They didn’t. As my wife said, “Well…there’s always next year.” In football…very...

Never a Good Reason

Mark Twain said, “There are a thousand excuses for failure, but never a good reason.” You’re staring at your third work week of 2018. There’s a gap between where you are and where you want to be- most likely many gaps. Considering your most pressing one, you very...
