Will You Lose Your Job?

He felt naked in his parka, hat and scarf. The bitter winter winds pierced his clothing tearing his flesh to the bone. Shivering in the near zero cold, waiting for the bus to arrive, battered by a wicked lake effect snow storm.

The swirling blizzard snow, reduced visibility to a few feet. Piled high mounds of snow buried the curb making it difficult to stand. The storm harsher than usual, businesses closing early. He was isolated, cold and alone.

Training Challenged?

Why do some people instantly seem to master things while others take forever?

For example, Olympic 25-year-old Silver Medal pole-vaulter Jenn Stuczynski made it to world class status in less than 4 years. While the Gold medalist 26-year-old Russian Yelena Isinbayeva spent over 10. What was different about their training? [Read more →]

Why Do You Live Your Passion?

Where The Heck Have You Been?

I apologize for not posting in a while.

As you have read in earlier posts, in the winter months I am heavy into skiing. I am a professional ski instructor, introducing people from ages 4 to 72 learn this fun and exciting winter activity. This winter, I have been even busier because a local ski shop asked if I could fill in some hours. The next post I make will be about the last few days of skiing.

Now that ski season is over I’m back to blogging, building my business, and coaching people to get more from life, their careers, and from their businesses. Likewise, I am walking my own talk. You will be seeing more posts and I am part of an on-line challenge to increase my business. More about that later.

I hope everyone is enjoying life to the fullest. Feel free to let your friends, family, enemies, or loved ones know about this blog. I encourage your paticipation and would love to read your comments.

Regards,

What is a typical situation is that tools take on a life of there own. Management gets convinced that a specific tool is an end all methodology. Then they force it on unsuspecting victims who see the tool as over complicating a very simple problem. [Read more →]
