Why Give Thanks?

As we celebrate Thanksgiving, it’s a question I have never asked. A day full of food and family, football and laughter, & togetherness without expectation. A time to stop, as it reminds us that Christmas is very near. But why give thanks? When you thank someone, you acknowledge their presence in your life. They took the time and showed interest or they did something that helped you...

Sometimes, Being Counter-Intuitive is Best

Our intuition becomes powerful as we continue to collect experiences in our life by each day. Routines create patterns that become internalized as both safe and productive. Media and popular thinking flood our attention with what, we are told, is accurate thinking. Only to hear, story after story, of the prevalence of fake news. Our instincts tell us to do what we believe, while quietly our...

Recalibrating Our Lives

Often we hurry through our days. Monday begins while readily Thursday appears. Seemingly one week into our New Year’s resolutions and we are already celebrating our Labor Day holiday. Missed meals, sleepless nights, endless deadlines, and life’s worries all contribute to the speed of our lives. There is never time to rest because we have thoughtlessly already committed to do something...


It’s a word that appears in our lives more than we realize. Our emotions are a reaction to something we hear, see or feel. Anger pushes us past our disatisfaction. An email causes us to stop what we are doing to answer. What we forget, is that we initiate our reaction. Not others. Nor a situation. Yet we never feel in control. It’s as if our reaction has a life of its own. Guided by...

Who Is Listening? Who Is Watching?

These are two popular questions in the media these days concerning voice activated devices and internet cameras in our homes. The debate centers around our privacy. Trying to protect ourselves against others from seeing or hearing who we really are. Or what we really think. I find these conversations short sighted and not very timely. For there are so many fundamantal situations that demand us to...

The Natural Law of “Lag” In Our Lives

To lag describes the fact that there is a delay between an action and a result. You most often hear the terms “leading” or “lagging” indicators when describing/predicting the behavior of financial markets. A great example of “lag” would be when you just had a medical procedure where the doctor immediately tells you that it was a success. Yet honestly, you...

Where Does Our Excitement Go?

The day after we start something new? After the days leading up to an event? When our new goal is a week old? Promising to do something with enthusiasm a few days ago? After finding the challenge to be bigger than first thought? Excitement is very much like a match. It has great power once lit, but dies quickly, unable to sustain itself. It blinds us to the need to find wood to build &...

Conveyor Lessons

This past week I spent multiple hours helping on a packaging line. Popcorn was being handpacked into containers. The containers needed a label put on them and then put in boxes to be shipped. On different days, different people helped. What I saw was fascinating. Everyone did their simple jobs differently. One person stacked the containers that came off of the conveyor before putting a label on...
