Confusing Nouns As If They Were Verbs

As a child, we learn at an early age about nouns and verbs. How and when to use them in a sentence. Over time, we build our grammar skills into a magical ability to communicate our thoughts to others. As adults, we tend to blur the distinction between nouns and verbs. We use nouns to act as verbs more times than we think. What do I mean by this? Leadership is a very subjective topic where...

Mastering Details: The Key to Intentional Living and Effective Decision-Making

Paying attention to detail is an important skill that we need to live our lives with intention. Details provide context to better understand what we now face. Giving us more clues to better decide the path we should pursue. Conversely, completing the details in our efforts, consistently demonstrates to others the quality of our thinking and outputs of work we are accountable to complete. Details...

Confronting Ourselves: The Challenging Journey of Self-Discovery and Change

Our most difficult work involves focusing on ourselves. Seeing ourselves for who we are and who we are not. When we realize the need to change something within ourselves and attempt to do it. Or when we want to learn more about ourselves to grow and evolve into something better than the person we are today. Or when things around us aren’t getting us to where we want to go and we are lost as...

Building Your Life’s Road with Purpose

Building roads is a skill we are both good and bad at. It is the longest project we will work on in our lives. Yet it’s very rarely noticed.

As We Age, More Things in Life Reveal Themselves as Temporary

Clouds look massive in the air. Solid from afar. When we are younger, most things around us appear this same way. The people we interact with are the same for months – even years. Places we visit, and institutions we frequent have this same characteristic. The problems we encounter and fix seem permanent. There is a sense that “life will go on like this forever”. But over a...

Unlocking Growth and Creativity: Embracing Search Beyond Information Retrieval

The world of artificial intelligence gives us limitless opportunities to benefit from search by going deeper into a topic we know little about in a short amount of time. Hiding the value of being interested in search by being overwhelmed by what information artificial intelligence shares with us for our query. Growing up, search was all about going to the library, looking through the card index...

An Antidote to Incomplete Thinking

We go through our days relatively well. Our daily routines make each day familiar. The start and end of most of our days are without incident. Surprises, disappointments, and obstacles tend to always be unexpected. Amid our busy lives, we have things we want to get done. Either to try, build on, or benefit from when complete.
