Our Written Opinions
Digitally speaking, blogging is one of the coolest and easiest ways to share thoughts and insights (often referred to as opinions) that are outside the usual. Look for fresh insights and stories each week.
The Power of Story
Earlier this week I was gobsmacked by this visual. It is brilliantly simple, isn’t it? Stories trump statistics. All. The. Time. I am sharing this because far too many of us, myself included, get stuck in certain parts of our business or professional lives. See, technology has given us way more data than we could
How Good is Your POV?
POV? I mean Point of View! Many believe the Great Resignation movement is underway right now. And much of the conversation is around how a supply chain can function without an adequate supply of humans. However, there is another pressing issue. One that many business owners may not be aware of. Imagine what will happen
Time & Work: the Long Game or the Short One?
It’s always a conundrum, isn’t it? The trade-off between time and work. You might know I have been following Seth Godin for years. (He is a marketing genius who blogs daily about the darnedest things.) One of his latest posts caught my eye. Here it is in its entirety. Making a difference (making a point)
My world has the best peeps! Last Sunday, the Tall Poppy Syndrome (TPS) note brought a torrent of new facts and insights into MY inbox. This week, I want to share some of them with you and inspire you to Stand Tall. TPS is the Aussie term about the expectation that poppies should grow together.
Have You Checked the Bathrooms?
I have a confession today. I am OBSESSED with the cleanliness of bathrooms. Everywhere. It probably started when I was a little girl, and my mother told me always to wear a clean pair of underpants. Truthfully that advice was about getting into an accident, and apparently, the state of one’s underpants told a lot
Heard About Tall Poppy Syndrome?
Tall Poppy Syndrome (TPS) is a term commonly used in Australia. It refers to the expectation that poppies should grow together. If one grows too tall, it gets cut down to size immediately. In real life, what happens is humans are terrified to be seen or identified as a ‘Tall Poppy.’ So they overdo it
In Praise of Praise
Last Friday, I received a slap-in-the-face lesson about Praise, and today I want to share it with you. I was walking the last 20 minutes of my daily 90-minute trek when a gentleman stopped me and asked if I had a phone. Of course! What’s the problem? There is a lady over there (gesturing to
Pandemic Flatulence. This is my new (uncopyrighted) term. I coined it to explain the dramatic increase in what we used to call casual brain farts. I was beginning to think the world had gone mad. Until it happened to me. Suddenly it all makes sense. July 6th, hubby and I embarked on the long drive to
Flip Your ME to WE
ME to WE? Flip who? Say What? How often do you get calls or requests to try out some personality test to help you understand yourself and then have phenomenal success? I bet you answer FREQUENTLY. And how many times have you taken those tests? Probably lots – as long as they are free. I
Last month the post about endless possibilities caused a commotion. While most agreed with me, the common question, was ‘where do I start?’ Let me explain. You have a big dream. A fantastic idea you would love to happen in your life. Could be a personal goal, a business ambition or even a wild and
