A road is not a path to a destination.

It’s not even a route.

A road is about who shares a journey.

A road is made by the people who walk on it.

Winners Never Demand A Rematch….

by - m on 03/23/2017


Winners get to write the history…

but losers share better stories.

Winners hope to stay in place.

Losers hope for better luck.

Winners have last time.

Losers have next time.

Everybody loves a winner.

But they root for the underdog.

Don’t Go Where The Crowd Is

There is no wisdom in crowds.

Ideas – especially creative ideas – rarely win popularity contests.

Look for validation from that one smart person who gets it.

We Have Met The Enemy And It Is Us

by - m on 03/21/2017


We treat strangers and coworkers better than we treat family and friends.

Each day we tolerate time-wasting meetings, inane comments, and mediocre talent.

Then we go home and take out our frustrations on those we care about most.

Ask yourself why you didn’t call out the boring, do-nothing meeting or
did not challenge the ideas brought by the willfully uninformed.

Avoid diatribes and histrionics.

Build your case. Develop alternatives to the status quo. Include the powers-that-be in your plan. Ask for advice – especially from those with whom you disagree.

If you’re persistent. If you’re patient…

There will be fewer meetings.

There will be better ideas.

If nothing else, your friends and family will be happier.
