The word and letter “I”

I. One letter as well as one word. It sits lonely apart on this line. The word “I” is hard to spell wrong and we never use it in a wrong way in a sentence. Or do we? I am at the center of all that I experience. The spotlight shines on no one else when we use this word. Those that use it often, do it to make sure the spotlights are on. It takes on the role of publicity agent directing...

Circular conversations

Circular conversations are those where people can engage with each other for minutes or hours at a time and get “no where”. Many people get trapped by circular conversations. We have all been part of these conversations. Some as observers and others as participants. The implication of being circular is that statements wrap themselves around into themselves. ¬†At the end of your...

I came across this quote while reading an article on implementing lean problem solving tools in a manufacturing environment. I hope you will take some time to think about it and enjoy it as much as I did. “We love exploring new stuff and changing our understanding — it’s changing behavior that we find painful.” Michael Balle I found this interesting because I thought for a...
