I’ve previously made reference in these posts to the “Jiminy Cricket-esque” quality of the voices within my socnets as your streams, threads and updates intersect with mine. Very oftentimes, a tweet, a Pinterest image or an update will speak to me in a way that has special significance. Call it kismet; call it some sort of angelic or Divine message, The Hive Mind….call it what you will, but I’ve come to rely on the Collective Wisdom that pervades my day-to-day existence as we become increasingly interwoven through our communication platforms.

This week, I had an opportunity to Read More…

I was walking along at a pretty good clip, a quarter of the way through my daily walk when I met her. Almost clear of the driveway, I caught, out of the corner of my eye, a sedan barreling my way.

Its pilot blissfully unaware that I existed, her hair the same shade of blue as her car, she backed out onto the street probably thinking of a million things that she needed to accomplish that day. And now, it appeared as though running me over was one of them. As the rear quarter panel of her car Read More…

The power of finding your purpose

Social media can amplify narcissism, distort our comprehension of our realities and otherwise isolate us from others: We came into this world tethered at the navel and we’ve been gazing at it ever since.

Why are we here? Why were we born? What does it all mean? How did it start? Where do I end? What is my purpose?

From the time we show up on this planet and the interval of years between/before our exit, most of us meander around this rock wondering what it’s all about and what we’re supposed to do. The few of us Read More…

I was born with a congenital heart defect, and so I spent a LOT of time in hospitals until I had, at age four, the final open heart surgery operation (Tetralogy of Fallot) that corrected my malformed “ticker.” With all of this time on my hands, I learned quickly how to lose myself in books, chief among them the work of Theodor Geisel.

How to conquer your fears

Filed Under management, Motivation, Successful Blog | Leave a Comment

Last week, we talked about using “why” as a flashlight as a means to identify hidden fears (or monsters) to independence that we may be harboring. Most of us are pretty skilled at masking things from ourselves, but our gut(s) are a good barometer. We just need to pay heed to the signals it sends us.

A good way to determine what your particular fear centers are and how they rank in order of severity is to list your goals in the affirmative and see which ones really rankle you. For example, take out a sheet of paper Read More…

Why I love fear

Here there be monsters. Under the bed. In the closet. In the basement. Who else here knew how to jump from the doorway to the bed at night so that the monsters couldn’t grab your ankle and drag you under?

When you get older, we know that the only things under the bed are fossilized Skittles, the Renegade Sock That Escaped from the Dryer and dust bunnies.

The real fears live within the telephone we don’t want to use when calling sales leads or funders. They live in our gut when we have to ask for Read More…
