59 Impactful “Communichology“ requires you and I to “get” the (3) three “Gets” worth getting: #1. Get over yourself.  Admit when either A) you just don’t know something, or B) you’re just plain not sure. This requires that you sharpen your skill of humility. Lower your defenses by dumping the “common sense defense.” Increase your […]

58 Time Waits For No One I believe most of us take time for granted. We subconsciously believe we have ALL the time in the world. We believe we’ll get to this, or that, later because we assume we will have a “later” to get to. Get it? Whatever you believe about life after death […]

Fifty-Seven

57 Winners. Losers. Posers. Pretenders… Who succeeds and who loses in life has plagued far greater thinkers than I for eons. What aligns the stars to make stars and successes of some who go on to become the envy of others? What magic needs to materialize for prosperity to become reality? Is it magic or […]

Fifty-Six

56 Time. It goes. Very. Very. Fast… There’s so much to do. And so much coming at us, seemingly all the time. Rarely do I feel “caught up”… know what I mean? And never feeling caught up or complete(ish) can be soul-crushing. I know, I’ve been there (and sometimes still am)… So what’s important? Truly […]

Fifty-Five

55 Details. The devil is in them as they say… And I fucking hate managing details. I’m a big-picture personality. I envision large-scale ideas, creative concepts, and initiatives. This can be a big strength. But, I can get bogged down in the minutia of certain details required to achieve the bigger vision sometimes. This can […]

54 I love history. I love knowing what went on prior, how things happened, and how things came to be. I love understanding, and more importantly, somehow and to some extent feeling the journey of those who came before me. Recording history requires the capture of time in various forms. In written form. In image form. […]

Fifty-Three

53 It’s been said: “All work and no play make Johnny a dull boy.” People who do little else but work all the time have issues. They’re running from something. They’re doing the avoid-dance. Being ambitious and driven are good qualities to possess. Success requires hard work of course, and this often requires choosing a course […]

52 Gratitude… It’s not just meant to be shared in a sunday morning sermon, within a social media thread, given in a holiday card, as a blog post, or only spoken when we’re getting everything we want. No, it’s meant to be demonstrated by what you do more than what you say. Its intention and […]

Fifty-One

51 A critical life skill (often underestimated) personally and professionally, is to recognize when you’re being any one of the following types >> and then knocking it the hell off by making the necessary changes to improve:  1) the know-it-all 2) the tool 3) the dick 4) the huff and puffer 5) the crock star 6) the loud talker 7) the avoider 8) the assumer, […]

50 Fleeting. Everything is… Temporary and taken for granted. Most things are… This is a universal, and can be upsetting if you dwell on it. So, why do we take things for granted? Especially that, and those who are most important? The simple answer is because we get caught up in ourselves more than we don’t. […]
