Seeing the Reflection of Life in Death

The death of a loved one is never easy. Their absence fills our life with tears, silence, and great loneliness. For the deceased, there is no longer any rush, responsibilities or worries.

When Do We Change?

I came across this quote while learning about lean problem solving tools. I hope you 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 long time, as I learned new things and my understanding of things changed, that I had...

A Classic: Moments of Blindness

This post first appeared in Feburary 2014. When we are so certain that nothing can stop us from succeeding. When we believe we are right and refuse to listen. When we don’t hear what someone is trying to tell us. When we react emotionally to what has just been said. When we want something uncontrollably.
