Wired for Solutions

We have already talked about being wired for problems. We all have different styles, and some behavioral styles have this uncanny ability to scan the environment for problems. At first this sounds negative. Always pointing out what is wrong. But there is a flip side…

Balancing Processes, You, and the Customer

Creating and running a business is not easy work. You have competing demands of your time, attention, and energy. Success increases that competition. Success increases the demands. You start to grow. You start to expand. Things start to break. The old ways are not…

Home Planet

You meet. You start to talk. You try to explain some weirdness. They nod. They totally get it. They totally get you. You connect so quickly. You feel so understood. They speak as if in your native language. They understand the perspective, the weirdness,…

More Flexible, Less Fear

The other day someone asked me to describe my two biggest goals in life. Once I got over the “Hey, I thought this was going to be a casual conversation!” I spent some time thinking about my response. The reply didn’t come right away,…

One of my first posts involved explaining the tagline for what this little adventure is all about. The “Know Yourself. Change the World.” post was almost a year and a half ago. I began to reflect on those simple words, and wondered if this…
