What I’m Thinking About . . .

Passwords are the bane of my existence.  My cheat sheet is crammed with more than 60 different password-protected accounts where I must know not only my password but also my user i.d.  How many times have you had to re-set a password on an infrequently used account?  When my...



Leadership, Worrying, and Attitudes of Gratitude

Inc. magazine’s got an interesting list of 9 daily habits to make you happier.  One of them is to let go of your results, as worrying about what’s going to happen based on what you’ve already done is unproductive.  Another suggestion is to end each day with gratitude.  I’d...

Back in the mid-80’s, I was restless in my work at Procter & Gamble, and enrolled in a ten day “career development” course for professionals through the Hurricane Island Outward Bound School.    Outward Bound is a hands-on learning organization whose participants develop self-esteem, a recognition of internal strengths...

Tip #8: Don’t Give Up Before You Get There!
