The Greatest Commandment

Last week was the monthly meeting I host called, The 3 C’s: Charity, Connections, Civility. In my opinion, it was the best one so far. We had a great conversation that resulted in some pretty interesting take-aways. The 4 main take-aways were: Recognize and acknowledge when people do something right [...]

Connections...

I have written many blogs and done several videos about how important connections are. Today more than ever, I believe that is true. We all have connections. Some are family, friends, co-workers, people from church or volunteer organizations. How many different kinds of connections do you have? I have worked in IT for 4+ decades, [...]

Be Realistic

When you hear the phrase, “hope for the best and prepare for the worst”, what do you think of? I think of how unrealistic those two extremes are. The best and the worst are really not likely going to be the real life outcome. Our country is more divided than ever. It is heartbreaking in so [...]

I saw a funny meme this week that said, “We are officially in the fourth quarter of 2020, let’s hope we are playing the Cowboys”. That is a little bit funny, even for this DFW resident. 2020 has been a rough year for many and for others it has been a wonderful year full of [...]

2 Stories

Last week I shared a little bit with you about why knowing more than your top 5 strengths would be helpful.  Did you do the homework of evaluating your strengths and choose one area that you might want to work on to do better? I have learned that there are some things that I am just not good at and trying to be [...]

More than your top 5

StrengthsFinder is more than the top 5. Millions of people have taken the StrengthsFinder profile and most of them have only got their top 5 results, not the “full 34” complete list. Very few people have ever had any coaching around their results which means they likely got the results, read them, and then put them in a drawer somewhere [...]
