Random Thoughts on a Saturday Morning over a Cup of Joe
Yesterday...an 8 year old friend of the family said "that's the spirit" when one of my sons did something nice. I thought about that phrase ever since and I think I am going to adopt that one for awhile.
Good managers are easy to find...not so with good leaders because we can't see behind the title.
We sure do love the underdog, don't we?
Six degrees of separation? Wholeheartedly believe in it.
Favorite quote from my Dad..."smile and the world will smile with you...frown and you are all alone."
Feels good to be a bucket filler, doesn't it?
Someone find a better way to describe the situation we are in when we can't control the outcome than saying "it is what it is" and I will stop saying it. Until then..."it truly is what it is."
There is no other team sport than football that truly takes all players playing as one to be successful.
Turning a culture around is like turning a sailboat against the wind. It's hard...but sometimes necessary.
We define who we will be as young adults in our 20's. Something defines us again in our 40's. Not sure about the 60's...not there yet. I will update you on that when I get there.
I really like October and December...glad there are 31 days in each month so I can enjoy them as long as possible.
Flat Stanley is one lucky dude!
Great chemistry and balance between two or more people can move mountains.
A well placed and timed day off can pay huge dividends down the road.
Passion is the one emotional gasoline that drives everything.
Didn't feel like writing today...glad I did. Feel better for it.
"That's the spirit!"
