One Of The Many Benefits

One of the many benefits to blogging, when you are giving your best away for free, is that you can say whatever you want.

There is no need to worry about offending anyone, because no one is paying cash.

People either get it or they don’t. These five daily blogs are not for everyone.

And that’s okay.

So, thank you Cheryl, for all your hard work. Just had to say that.

We don’t wait until kids are an “adult” to teach them how to read, write, add and subtract.

But we wait until they’re an adult, hoping mental responsibility, physical responsibility, spiritual responsibility, career responsibility, and administrative responsibility will fall from the sky and then be bestowed on them.

What if we didn’t wait?

When should we start the teaching process and how long should it last?

Life, Lean Into It

No, not the movie Sixteen Candles.

Sixteen months.

Today marks the start of the 16th month of writing five daily blogs. Each one differently themed from the other.

July 1, 2010 – what does it mean to you?

When you look in the mirror each morning, what are you doing to keep up with the daily demands life places on you?

Lean into it!

13 Months

Freedom To Write Without Worry
Freedom To Write Without Worry

It’s been 13 months. Writing five separate blogs. Daily?  Yep, daily.

Daily, as in every single day.

(only guy on the Internet doing it)

If you notice on the right column under Archives, April 2009 has 18 posts, not 30.

Here’s why. I used to blog for my company, before we had an official social media policy, which came out last August.

Twelve blog posts were removed because of their reference to my real job with a Fortune 100 company for the past 27 years. My boss said I’m free to write whatever I want to personally, but not as a spokesperson for our company.

I’m good with that.

And because of my gift for focus and discipline, there is no one better at social media policy commitment and compliance than, well, guess.

It’s Easier To Do This, Isn’t It?

You know what humans are like?


Water is always looking for the easiest route. Water never chooses the uphill path. Only and always, the downhill path.

Sound familiar?

This is why we need to spend a significant amount of time figuring this out.

We have two choices.

  1. Follow the herd
  2. Lead the herd

If the followers are so smart with their ideas on how the leader should do things, why don’t they simply take charge?

Because their ideas don’t cut it.

Hard work does. And followers don’t have the guts to do the hard work. They sit in the shadows and know neither the agony of defeat, nor the thrill of victory.
