Don’t Talk To Strangers

Think back over the past week, have you been talking to strangers? I hope so! Over the past forty plus years of my life, let’s just say I began talking to strangers in my teens. I know it is not safe and we teach our kids don’t talk to strangers. But I was an old soul and was curious, and the best way for me...

Are You Certified-What Is Next

Just last week I finished a long process of getting a certification. This was a  multi-year process and an extremely detailed review of all of the information submitted. In fact the review took more than four months. When I think about certifications I believe you can get many differing types and they could range from spending a few hours in a swimming pool to be certified...

Change Happens

I was listening to a pod cast as the speaker talked about change. He made some valid points. Here are just a few for you to consider, I am sure there are more. You can prepare for change. You do not control change. Change happens in a second. You can not stop change. As I thought about his statements they were all true. The speaker...

Attitude, Effort and Actions

It has been some time since we talked about your goals. Are they still defined in writing, with an end date? Are your goals challenging you to move forward or are you waiting for something to happen? And if you are waiting for something to happen who is really in control? I do believe the only thing we are in control of is our attitude,...

How Busy Is TooBusy

I have been “BUSY”! I have been the busy where you lose track of the day of the week, or you forget-did I eat today? I forgot because I went from task to task never taking notice of the time or my belly grumbling. Now I don’t miss many meals, it’s not healthy. One thing I notice is when  I get that busy there are...

Get Your Point Across

  Many times when I am conducting a training session, speaking or just hanging out with friends I sprinkle humor around, I look for laughs and smiling faces. Then I know the audience is engaged and I am on my game. My goal in any situation with any group of people gathered is to give them something to remember, help them move forward in what...

I Want To Make A Difference

When was the last time you found an old email that made your day? That would be today for me. I get so busy doing, sometimes I forget to take time to listen. The email I found was from a past student from a 4-day training class some time ago. It started like many emails I have received in the past. Here is what it...

How Do You Finish

A project is nearing it’s end, how do you finish? It is a valid question. We will all be ask to preform at some point in our careers. There are some people that plod along never getting too high with excitement of getting ahead, or too distracted in running behind. They take all the time available to complete a project. The project may be perfect,...

The Question

I love listening to speakers when the room is filled and you can feel the energy. The room is controlled with the tone of voice and body movement as well as the words we say or defer. We build up that one question. We all do it, we have that one question we like to ask to get everyone to think in their own head...

Blanca April 24th, 2014

It is coming up on three years since I lost my little friend. Her name was Blanca and her paws marched all over my life for nearly 18 years. She surprised me on a regular basis her whole life constantly adding prints where there had never been. When I first meet her I thought there is no way, no way in the world I will...
