“Good with people”

You know a few - people who are half as smart as you and half as talented - but they get twice the results with others. Chances are they are just better with people.  Attitude, respect, communication, personality, caring, optimism - and just plain smiling. Are you "good with people"?


Overwriting

Years have passed and we learned a lot of stuff through experience.  We made some of it mean things about ourselves - "I can't", "we can't", "I'll never be...", "I'm just a...". But it's never too late to learn new things and make new decisions about ourselves. If you don't…


The age of infinite wisdom

What age is that? It can be 10, 17, 23, 44 or 68.  It's whatever age you find yourself saying "I know" a lot.  And because you know it all, there is simply no way you can learn more. How would that work for someone?


How to be an effective, happy human

Self Confidence

Nobody knows what you've been up to, whether you can be trusted, or what your abilities are better than you.  Other people figure that you know you best, and if YOU aren't confident in yourself, then why should they be? Prepare, do things you are proud of, and maintain your…


Urgency and Deadlines = Productivity

If a flood was coming, you get the sandbag wall built NOW.  If you're having a party tomorrow night, you get the house clean NOW.  If the paper is due tomorrow, you get it done NOW.  It's amazing what you can get done when you HAVE to.   But the…


Leadership begins with you

If people see that you can't manage your own affairs, you can't put clean trouble free days together, have bad habits, and don't take care of yourself, then why would they follow you, give you more responsibility, or give you a leadership position? Lead yourself first.
