  • Episode #136: Emotional Intelligence – Let’s Call it What it Is


    How big is your emotional vocabulary? The average is 3 words: mad, sad, and glad.

  • Episode #131: Everything is Figureoutable Part 2


    Is everything really figureoutable?  And haven’t we already talked about it?  Yes and yes.  This book by Marie Forleo was so good that I wanted to share what I learned in the second half.  After you listen, why not buy the book and try this yourself?  No matter where you are in life, if you’ve […]

  • Episode #129: My Year End Review


    You know, I always hated the end of year performance evaluations I did on myself and my team.  The format was so restrictive.  It didn’t really tell the whole story.  So this year, I turned the annual review on its head.  I tried it on myself, and thought I'd ’hare it with you.  You might […]

  • Episode #127: Give Gratitude All You’ve Got


    Some tell you to have an “attitude of gratitude”.  That sounds catchy.  And it’s not the same as practicing gratitude.  Practicing implies intention.  Work.  Even doing something you don’t always want to do.  Because you know it’s good and right.  Because it ultimately makes a difference in how you feel…and succeed.

  • Episode #126: The Self-Improvement Experiment – Part 1


    Self-help books.  Some people love them.  Others hate them.  Think they’re fake.  That there’s nothing new under the sun.  That they spend half their time convincing you that you need fixing so you pay them to help you do it.  What’s the reality?  We’re going to explore some together to find out.  It should be […]

  • Episode #124: Built With Love – Problem Solving


    “Houston, we have a problem.”  This has become so famous that we say it ourselves, even though we don’t work for NASA.  Problems come up almost every day.  Some as small as breaking a dish when it drops on the kitchen floor.  Others require us to drop everything else to deal with them.  Like most […]

  • Episode #123: Built With Love – Your Story


    Stories.  They’ve captivated and entertained us since humankind has been able to communicate.  They help us see things we never saw before.  Cause us to feel anger.  Outrage.  Empathy.  Joy.  Some of them, anyway.  Others?  We wonder when they’re going to end.  Wish we hadn’t heard this one 60 times already.  Want to escape the […]

  • Episode #119: Built With Love – Your Product


    My brother-on-law made me an Irish whistle holder that was work of art.  What made it different?  It was built with love.  You know it feels when you buy or are given something that’s made with love?  It’s completely different from something that was made to be purely useful – or cost effective.  Today we’re […]

  • Episode #118: Built With Love – Your Culture


    Culture isn’t what you say, but rather the total of what each one who’s part of the culture actually does.  Many cultures are built with fear, or without intention.  It just sort of happens, based on how everyone chooses to engage with the others.  To build a culture with love takes intention, practice, and diligence.  […]
