Our Certainty & Outcomes Weaken When Expectations Guide Our Judgment

Expectations can cause us great difficulties. Clouding our judgment by “whipping up” our emotions. Unintentionally, causing us to stop listening, ignoring possible options, as well as to make our certainty a foregone conclusion. Much like the dart being guided above, expectations create a misguided belief that we can guide our efforts to a specific outcome with complete certainty...

Viewing Every Thing You Do As An Experiment

Everyone has heard everything about personal development and change. Things come and go. What we consider important today, may be of little value tomorrow. There is a fluidity to life, that as you get older, reveals itself. Experiments have a very clear beginning and end. While there may be some disappointment if an experiment does not work, we know we then must try something different if we are...

Things That Cause Fear In Our Hearts

Three words bring fear into our hearts. Change, difference, & doubt. They make us stop in our tracks. Fooling us into being more fragile than we truly are. They make us hesitate. Watch from the sidelines. Look behind us. Hold on to what we had. When we feel any of these words we become uneasy, unsure, and tentative. It’s almost as if these are signals for imminent death. What we fail to...

A Component of Leadership Involves Preparation

We glorify leadership as being a special quality that only a few possess. While true some have more experience than others, it is not something magical or necessarily rare. One can learn many aspects of building leadership skills once you are aware of them. One of the least mentioned is that of preparation. Our stories about leadership tend to focus on outcomes. Results. Grand plans that come to...

Crossing Paths With A Stranger

Sometimes the unexpected can surprise us in a very positive way. I heard a graffiti artist. Erik Wahl, speak at a conference I was attending a few years ago. His hands full of paint, music, and video interrupting his speech, together with his words of insight provided everyone with the value of the unexpected. During his talk he painted three incredible art pieces, with paint brushes and his...

The Danger & Power of Understanding

Understanding makes us too certain fooling us into thinking that our understanding is complete. Not knowing that to truly understand means to discover the rough edges, around what we think, believe, and see. Filling them in with new bits of knowledge, over and over, that continue to expand the picture that we see. Powerfully changing our perspective over time with what we thought we first...

Time and Entropy

Entropy is a scientific term to describe the dissipation of order and energy in any physical system. Going from order to disorder naturally. It happens to all of us in our lives. A simple example to describe entropy is when we clean our room or office what happens? More things slowly are left here or there and then guess what? There now is a mess without us even trying needing us to clean it all...

Thinking vs Doing – Who Has The Advantage?

We tend to think highly of people who either get things done or can figure things out. Thinking vs doing are clearly two different skills. Someone recently chose to use the descriptors “passive” for thinking and “active” for doing. I found this interesting but it did leave me unsettled. My intuition is that thinking and doing are symbiotic. They need to live together...
