Feel younger, Have More Time

Mon, 28 Dec 2009 01:30:00 +0000

Do you get a lot of spam? Mine is well filtered, but I still have to glance through the junk file to be sure that nothing important was inadvertently caught. If spam is any guide it seems that Americans sex and meds dominate the American psyche. Recently I noticed this subject line: Feel 10 years younger in bed today. I’m sure you can guess what product was being hyped. However, that’s not what hit me and I’ll bet most of you will agree with my reaction—I’d much rather feel 10 years younger out of bed. Around this time of year I hear from a [...]

Quotable Quotes: Actions

Sun, 27 Dec 2009 09:30:31 +0000

I came across the following last week, Watch your thoughts, for they become words. Watch your words, for they become actions. Watch your actions, for they become habits. Watch your habits, for they become character. Watch your character, for it becomes your destiny. and it got me thinking about cause and effect; where things start and where they go from there. Leonardo da Vinci said, “I have been impressed with the urgency of doing. Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Being willing is not enough; we must do,” while Hemingway warns us, “Never mistake motion for action.” Very true, ideas are all well and good, but [...]

Seize Your Leadership Day: A Reason to Think

Sat, 26 Dec 2009 09:30:31 +0000

I spent over an hour going through my article collection and found nothing that seems worth sharing; I seem to have used up all the good stuff on this week’s Saturday Odd Bits, check them out, especially if you’re interested in Microsoft, and be sure to subscribe via RSS or EMAIL while you’re there. Then I remembered one item I’ve been meaning to share with you and this particular weekend seems like an appropriate time to do it. You may have seen it, since it’s been making the round of the Internet, but even so, I still want to share it with [...]

Merry Christmas! I hope you’re in your jammies, sipping mimosas or good coffee, knee deep in wrapping paper and that Santa was good to you.

Ducks In A Row: Noticing the Obvious

Tue, 22 Dec 2009 09:30:33 +0000

Many times the solutions we seek are waltzing around in full sight, but we don’t see them.  Let me give you a personal example. I started RampUp Solutions in 1997, but finding a simple way to describe what we did took several years. In the show Gypsy there’s a song that says, “Ya gotta have a gimmick” to succeed and I doubt that’s unlikely to change anytime soon. I wanted one clear, concise term that gave insight to RampUp’s coaching approach, not a couple of paragraphs—no matter how well written. When the light finally went on I had to laugh. The term I [...]

Smoke and Mirrors

Mon, 21 Dec 2009 09:30:20 +0000

Have you noticed the efforts to diminish the compensation or banking honchos and Wall Street hotshots? Or at least make it look that way. Our friends at Goldman Sachs are in the forefront, which should give you lots of confidence that the effort is for real. The bonuses are in restricted stock that has to be held at least five years, so if the stock value went down 20% the banker would receive only $8 million instead of the $10 expected—poor baby, a lousy $8 million dollars, that’s terrible! Of course, the stock goes up 20% they’ll pick up an extra two mil. Goldman [...]

Quotable Quotes: Change

Sun, 20 Dec 2009 09:30:46 +0000

As you probably know by now there is change afoot at Leadership Turn. Specifically it’s ending, as all good things end, and that means change for me and you. But that’s good. As Harold Wilson said, “He who rejects change is the architect of decay.  The only human institution which rejects progress is the cemetery.” Edwards Deming said it more simply, “It is not necessary to change.  Survival is not mandatory.” Well, I plan to survive and we sure aren’t dead, so change it is. When change hits have you noticed how much energy people expend looking for reasons not to change? John Kenneth Galbraith [...]
