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 the rest of this article…

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 the rest of this article…

Why Would Someone Want to be a Leader?

April 2, 2010 by · 11 Great Opinions, Leave Yours
Filed under: Leadership 

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 the rest of this article…

64 Great Sites and Articles on Diversity and Appreciating Differences

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 the rest of this article…

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. …Read the rest of this article…
