I’m a Polymath, You Can Be One Too

I've been asked several times how I retain so much of what I read and try to learn. Additionally, where do I find the time to do all that work including what I share here. I've come to terms that there is only a limited amount of time each day and it's the same amount … Continue reading I’m a Polymath, You Can Be One Too

Empathy and Sympathy Not the Same

Wanted to take a little break from resilience this month and share a video I ran across. I've been studying empathy and compassion a bit. I came across this video that brilliantly paints a picture between what some people think is empathy, when sympathy is really what it is. The video itself is about 3:54 … Continue reading Empathy and Sympathy Not the Same

The Ugly Side of Resilience

As I've been writing all month about resiliency and all the great things about this great habit that works to make you that way, I began to study the other side. Is it possible that resilience has an ugly side? I assumed it can be like any habit that if over used can be as … Continue reading The Ugly Side of Resilience

GTTW: Home

"All roads lead to home, we just arrive at different times." - B.o.B. We alway have home to look forward to. Even those that might not have a home, find a way to create one. Home isn't always a physical base at the end of our work to move through challenge, it's a mental one … Continue reading GTTW: Home

A Curious Little Art Called Kintsugi

A question as I deep dive into my studies on building resilience came to my mind this morning over my coffee. If you could choose and really had the power to do so, would you not want something to challenge you? What if you could remove any challenge, any, with the snap of your fingers? … Continue reading A Curious Little Art Called Kintsugi

Friction and Polished Things

I have an incredible opportunity to put myself in front of some of the best thinkers in my organization on a regular basis. It's a blessing, a lot of hard work, and worth every minute. One of those people I've worked with and for, going on 8 years. She regularly channels things that are profound, … Continue reading Friction and Polished Things

Retool Daily

I've written about the reboot before. Subconsciously we do almost everything on auto pilot. Including our worst behaviors. Hard to change that when you don't really stop to think about it and dig in to change yourself. It's not the mistake that's bad. It's the chain of self-destruction when we continue to make that bad … Continue reading Retool Daily

Embrace the Suck

Do not ever settle for second best in yourself or your work. Our lack of ambition can be a life experience killer and keep us from truly seeing the best version of ourselves. We need to be obsessed with our ambitions. Until you do that you're going to leave great powers, passion, and limitless rewards … Continue reading Embrace the Suck

A Better You and Me

Less is more. So they say, yet we don't really learn. We pile on more than we can handle. I did it to myself today with work. I had this grand vision that I could get all this stuff done, and probably only got about two thirds of it done. Why do we do it? … Continue reading A Better You and Me
