Finding Meaning

Sun, 22 Mar 2015 23:31:46 +0000

A lot of what we do in work and life is truly meaningless. We do these meaningless things because we think that we should do them or we think that we have to do them. But, is this really true? What if we just said no to the useless things and did what really mattered?…



Uncertainty at Startups

Mon, 16 Mar 2015 00:09:30 +0000

Entrepreneurs must live with great uncertainty. Unlike the “9 to 5” crowd who prod through predictable daily work routines, life at a startup is wildly unpredictable. More than tasks or workflow, startups must manage unpredictable outcomes and then must adapt on the spot. This learning requires a founder to be accepting of considerable ambiguity and…



The Genius Within

Sun, 15 Mar 2015 05:48:00 +0000

“Every employee has talent of some kind: He or she is skilled at being able to analyze numbers, bring products to market, or close sales deals. But talent is just the starting point. Genius is talent unleashed. It’s the ability to exploit each employee’s unique values, passions, strengths, curiosity, and intuition so they can add…



Loneliness

Sat, 14 Mar 2015 08:21:18 +0000

We all feel lonely from time to time. For some people, especially the elderly, this is a real problem with serious health consequences. Increasingly, our society isolates people or people are just choosing to be alone. Older people often have had spouses and friends die or move away. Illness, disability, loss of mobility, lack of…



I Am Sorry

Sat, 28 Feb 2015 22:03:15 +0000

“I am sorry.” While just three simple words, many people won’t or can’t say them. How could that be? For some people saying “I am sorry” is almost impossible to do. For these people apologizing is frightening and may be based on their own insecurities and self-doubt. Rather than confronting their own fears, they consciously…



Zen for Entrepreneurs

Mon, 09 Feb 2015 07:16:35 +0000

The other day I wrote a short blog about being mindful. While being mindful applies to all of us, I think it particularly applies to the entrepreneur. Entrepreneurs must embrace mindfulness to be successful. Mindfulness is a focus on the present. This means that past thoughts and actions are done and over; only now matters.…



Mindfulness: A Moment of Zen

Tue, 03 Feb 2015 16:12:11 +0000

Mindfulness is a focus on the present. Past thoughts and actions are done and over; memories may linger but only now matters. The future will be or may not be. The key is to be present. When you’re mindful you can monitor your thoughts and feelings from a distance, without judging them as good or…



Optimists Live Longer

Sun, 01 Feb 2015 18:11:23 +0000

“Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see the shadow.                                    It’s what sunflowers do.” – Helen Keller Do you see the world through rose-colored glasses?  Or are you more of the “glass half empty” type?  Evidence shows that positive thinking and optimism leads to better health and higher levels of happiness in…



The Hokey Pokey: Is This What It Is All About?

Mon, 26 Jan 2015 00:59:50 +0000

For much of my life I have avoided the Hokey Pokey, which is a silly dance best suited for children and seriously inebriated adults. You know what I mean. It is for kindergarteners who are innocent and carefree; for them the Hokey Pokey is just natural. For those in mid-life to late life it seems…



Smart People

Sun, 14 Dec 2014 20:24:58 +0000

“Smart” can take many different forms. A high IQ doesn’t necessarily mean you have street smarts, but it probably doesn’t hurt. You might be intelligent in many areas of your life, but struggle in others. For our purposes, “smart” means behaving in a way that is aligned with your values and goals. Successful people usually…
