Joy Bucket-Trunk

Two quick requests before I divulge my secrets on how to Stick-It to the Man. I’m usually pretty upbeat in my writing.  If this one seems a bit grim in the intro, hang on to the end for the sunshine to break through. Please don’t take this article to Human Resources and blow the whistle […]

Pacific Ocean meets Columbia River

It’s difficult some days to know the way to the right path. It’s a challenge to know what the effect is of the conversation I just had with an employee.  I used a coaching and sports analogy to attempt to communicate my idea.  But maybe I just sounded like another chowder-head using a sports analogy.

Scooter Hero's

Scooters in Denver I never play enough, but when I do it’s usually pretty sweet. The irony is that I love to talk about playing but I actually spend more time dreaming about it than actually doing it. Although my play plots low on the line graph for overall time spent each year, I’m told […]

DeepSurvivalLG

For some reason this podcast interview has tugged at my heart and my Lizard Brain resistance has delayed my publishing this episode. I guess the real truth for me is this interview hits very close to home and my own experiences with survival. I think I simply wanted to enjoy marinating in two of my […]

Me as a kid

It took me until I was somewhere around age 36 to realize that I wasn’t very kind to myself. The pace I lived at and what I expected from myself were pretty unfair. My mom found this picture of my brother and I from my grandfather’s backyard in Los Angeles, CA circa 1979. In those […]
