Rules. Every business and organization has them. Rule #1 is usually: “Follow our rules”. If you’re in a leadership position, please consider this rule for your team.

Ever notice we always use adjectives to make something sound a lot better? A food, your day, a crispy carrot, a tart cherry, a sweet nectarine or like this sign I saw today: fresh squeezed juices. Your challenge: pick an adjective for yourself today. What type of juice you bringing to make our day a […]
Are you “busy as a bee”? We started using that quote in the 15th century to describe busy people…but are you busy -or- productive? A bee will work while there is daylight (but takes off rainy days and when below 50 degrees) Making one pound of honey takes a visit to 2-Million flowers. A single […]
What do you want to be today? Perfect? Productive? Interesting? A photo of my puppy at a certain statue in Philadelphia brought a personal quote to mind: “Don’t aspire to be like your Heroes, strive to be what your heroes want to become.” Rocky had a goal of being much more than a Champion Fighter.

Be the person your dog thinks you are. — No clue who said this first. My first post of my new blog on my own website. My previous blogs were mostly on LinkedIn and have a business focus; but my epiphany is many of these random thoughts work for business and life. The foundation is […]
Why? Why not? You experience it every day…and it’s something that we talk and even complain about…”Why don’t people care about what they’re doing?” It could be in the check-out line, chatting on social media, about your boss, a co-worker…a customer.

A goal I strive to achieve every day: I say “hello” to 10 strangers. The stats? 7 will ignore me, 2 will mumble some reply…and then there’s the one. The person who I connected with. They’ll smile, respond and look a bit brighter. Hopefully they’ll pass it on. Imagine if each of us got one […]
