The false promise of change

You hear it all of the time. If only he or she would change. If only my boss would change. If only the situation at work will change. This new year I am going to change…… The business literature for a while was focused on organizational change and how in most cases it failed. Organizations and people find it difficult to change because both are made up so much of routine and habit. We...

Lean Life

Today I realized that I have never had an idea that was complete. Never had an idea that was finished. Never had an idea that would never change. Sounds strange, doesn’t it? (I am not talking about values but rather ideas.) There are good ideas and not so good ideas. Even good ideas can be improved upon. It is not only the poor ones that could use the help. Ideas linger. Good ones and not...

Consistency

Consistent in output, temperament, and habit.
Consistent in attention, discipline, and appearance.
Consistent in detail, focus, and energy.
Consistent in interest and caring.
It’s so hard to do this everyday because we are human.
But it’s no excuse not to try.

Spider webs

Spiders are fascinating. They are easy to notice when crawling on a wall or ceiling in a house. I have seldom been present when they are weaving their web. Spider webs are created to catch things much bigger then they are. They are built to trap. They are built to stop movement of a larger insect. The webs themselves are almost invisible until they collect on a wall. They go from being a...

Comparisons

Comparisons are very useful for some things in our lives. Before buying something expensive we read reviews of different brands, different hotels, or different travel destinations. We easily compare prices on the web every day. Comparisons are useful in chemistry in identifying different compounds by testing for their melting point, boiling point, or colors when separated using different...

A carefree life

No worries, no responsibilities, and no dilemmas. To the days and months ahead where stability, serenity, and a sense of calm will fill all of our remaining days. This is missing today in our lives. We wish these days would soon appear. It sounds so simple. We worked so hard to get there through our many years. It feels so good to dream how we are so deserving. Yet waking up each day we find that...

Details

Recently I was at a party and was talking to some friends. One of them was sharing stories about the years they were in the service. What was fascinating to me was the detail they used to describe their experiences. Driving home later that evening, I was thinking about how many things I do not remember about my past days. My friend’s remembrances of the past seemed so close and real even...

Flowers

Red flowers. Yellow flowers. Purple flowers. Large ones. Orange ones. Small ones. Bought from a store. Growing wild in a field. Displayed proudly in a yard. They seem to be everywhere. My bride loves flowers. I enjoy bringing her flowers. She loves planting them and watching them grow. My neighbors spend hours in their yard. I spend very little time in ours. I find flowers to be fascinating in...
