HeadinHands 300x262 When There is Simply Not Enough Time Keep­ing busy can def­i­nitely lead to a sharper and quicker mind. But what if being con­sis­tently busy is not get­ting you the results you want? What if you find that you can’t get every­thing you set out to do accom­plished? Even if you do accom­plish it, is it up the cal­iber you wish it to be? It’s really great to be involved in many great activ­i­ties and orga­ni­za­tions. But if you aren’t sat­is­fied with the qual­ity of the things you are deliv­er­ing, it may be time to re-evaluate. Read more

Let’s Have Some Character; Keeping One’s Word

Coffee1 300x299 Lets Have Some Character; Keeping One’s WordKeep­ing one’s word. It’s prob­a­bly one of the eas­i­est ways to build cred­i­bil­ity and also one of the eas­i­est ways to loose it. Keep­ing your word is also one of the sim­plest ways to show char­ac­ter and integrity. Why do I say that? Let me tell you what recently hap­pened to me and how some­one, unfor­tu­nately, tainted their char­ac­ter by doing some­thing as sim­ple as not keep­ing their word on more than one occasion.

The other day I was with some­one who had intro­duced them­selves to a col­league of mine and I at a func­tion ear­lier in the year. His name was Robert and the func­tion we met at was being hosted by an orga­ni­za­tion that I am a mem­ber of. I also help to run many of the organization’s func­tions and this par­tic­u­lar func­tion was no excep­tion. Read more

Why Would Someone Want to be a Leader?

It’s a ques­tion I find myself ask­ing every now and then. Being a leader always comes with it added respon­si­bil­ity in some form or another. Added respon­si­bil­ity because every­one has things they are respon­si­ble for in their life. Whether it is their rent or mort­gage, gro­cery bills, school home­work, par­ent­hood respon­si­bil­i­ties, job respon­si­bil­i­ties, you name it. We all have them in some mix. When a per­son is a leader, added respon­si­bil­i­ties come about. With that added pres­sures, added stress, more hours most likely needed in order to get things done. So why would some­one want to be a leader? Read more

Diversity121 201x300 64 Great Sites and Articles on Diversity and Appreciating DifferencesThere are many dif­fer­ences that sep­a­rate each and every one of us. For me, that is one of the things that makes life so inter­est­ing and enjoy­able. Unfor­tu­nately, there are peo­ple who incor­rectly assume some­thing about another per­son or the group they belong to sim­ply due to a dif­fer­ence. When it comes to diver­sity and appre­ci­at­ing dif­fer­ences, no one can hon­estly say that they are not inter­ested in it. The rea­son for me stat­ing such a com­ment is because regard­less of who we are or where we come from, every­one has biases toward peo­ple we per­ceive to not be like our­selves. Whether it’s a dif­fer­ence in skin color (or shade of the same skin color), dif­fer­ence in lan­guage, or dif­fer­ence in gen­der, we all will have some form of nat­u­rally occur­ring pre­con­ceived opin­ion of a per­son who is not like our­selves. That is, until we edu­cate our­selves and/or sim­ply become a lit­tle more informed about Read more

What Does Exercise Have to do with Leadership?

Exercise2 300x271 What Does Exercise Have to do with Leadership?Exer­cise. Some of us dread it, oth­ers can’t wait to get to it. It’s true that exer­cise can become addi­tive and almost an obses­sion at times to some peo­ple (I myself have been bit­ten by the exer­cise work­out bug). When I’m forced to go more than a cou­ple of days with­out work­ing out, I find myself hav­ing more trou­ble get­ting through the day unscathed by life’s all too famil­iar stresses and chal­lenges.
