A Balanced Focus

We all seek balance in our lives.  Thats all the rage these days.  Do you have proper work/life balance?  Is there a good balance between meetings, e-mails, phone calls, and one on one time?  Can you multi task and balance all that you have to do today?  Balance.  It’s all about balance. The Rare Leader…

They Still Need You

Margaret was in a corner.  The promotion came at a great time.  She was really busy with her current responsibilities, and the added responsibilities would create some juggling, and require a closer focus.  There were certain to be sleepless nights ahead too.  But wow, it’s worth it.  Isn’t this all part of the plan of…

The Road Starts Here

How many times have you checked one off from your bucket list?  Dave had preparing for fullfilling one of his dreams for several months.  Aside from dreamily watching the chrome flash by, forwarned by the signature rumble minutes earleir, he decided to take the step.  First there were lessons.  In addition to obtaining a license,…

Because I Am Possessed

I am possessed by this obligation, she said.  Possessed!  Possessed she repeated…did you hear me?  That’s why I lead.  I am obligated to others to help them succeed. Quite an emotional response to a seemingly obvious follow up question.  The first question I had asked was far too open.  But open by my design.  Where…

Passionate, Contagious, & Hopeful, but a little silly too.

We are so serious these days.  But it makes sense.  Take a look around you. It’s not a pretty picture. At least thats what it seems.   I gave up on the local newspaper recently when they decided to charge me for accessing their articles on-line.  It just wasn’t relevant anymore, given all the competing…

I Need A Pedicure

I find it interesting how everyone Uses the end of the year for review and planning. It’s on everyone’s mind, the year-end review, goal-setting for next year, tweaking the strategic plan, and counting up every one of those sales credits. With all this focus on reviewing planning and the rush to year-end, I looked up…

That Danged Glass

I was golfing this past weekend with old friends.  We’ve golfed together Saturday mornings for 30 years, and we know each-other well enough so there is a good blend of kidding each-other, as well as digging a bit deeper into more personal issues in front of us. I was not having a particularly great day…

It’s still about Fear and Greed

On October 19th 1987, all the hopes and dreams that had been built into a steadily growing investment account for many, was dashed in one dark sullen day with the largest one-day percentage decline in recorded stock market history.  Like the market decline of the recession in the late 2000’s, many of the younger investors…

Make Friends and Business Follows

One of the most truly remarkable business experiences I have ever had was presented to me in the late 1980s. I was invited to participate in a merger and acquisition presentation in New York City. As the deal was broken down into detail, it was clear this would be the financial services blockbuster deal of…

Then It Must Be My Fault

I’ve gone through most of my adult life believing we have carried forward one of those great attributes of childhood where it’s never our fault, it must’ve been someone else. When I was a preschooler, my older brother and I were playing ball in the front yard. One of us threw the ball, (really, it…
