Blurring The Boundaries With Your BlackBerry

September 26th, 2008



It’s hard to imagine life before the BlackBerry. Though it was introduced just nine years ago, 13 million people now use this device to stay connected in the Information Age. The fact is, many people are too connected, literally keeping their BlackBerrys with them 24/7.


For many of my coaching clients, over-dependence on technology is an ongoing topic in our coaching sessions. Here are a few of the comments they’ve made:

How to Prosper During Economic Uncertainty

September 17th, 2008


There are challenging times ahead. Here in Michigan, for example, we are facing continuing uncertainly due to the higher oil prices, a downturn in the domestic auto industry, and troubles in the housing market. While Michigan may be suffering more than other regions of the country, this challenging environment is certainly not limited to our state.


Then, this past weekend, the news went from bad to very bad to catastrophic.

Create and Enjoy Magic Moments

September 15th, 2008


Last weekend, my daughter Carly and I enjoyed a “magic moment” together.


“What’s a magic moment?” you ask? For me, it’s a special experience with someone close to me that I will remember for the rest of my life.


A magic moment can be big, like our family vacation last summer in Europe. We visited Germany, Austria, and France. It was a truly special time for our family.

Find Time. Yes, You Can.

September 11th, 2008


Time is one of our most valuable commodities. That’s why people spend thousands of dollars and, yes—lots of time!—attending time management seminars and reading books about the latest time management theories.


If only we could learn how to better manage time! That would solve everything, right?


It’s funny how we give so much credit to time. When we are feeling frazzled and harried and just plain burnt-out we like to blame it on time, as if it’s something that we can’t control.

Just Look at Michael Jordan

September 8th, 2008


What does Michael Jordan have to do with working less and making more? Lots. Michael Jordan is a good example of what happens when you focus on and maximize your talents and strengths. He’s also a good example of what happens when you don’t maximize your strengths and talents.


We all have things we’re really good at doing. And most of us aren’t just limited to one thing. Chances are, you’re probably brilliant at many different things. But there’s a difference between being brilliant at something, and loving something. When you focus on something you’re brilliant at, you’re using your strengths and talents in the best possible way. When you focus on something you love doing, you have a lot of fun but aren’t really using your strengths and talents in the best way possible.
