Quiet Intensity

Sometimes, if not always, it’s incredibly effective to have a role model that practices what is preached. But you already knew that, right?

The other thing that can happen is we get so darn busy that the answers and inspiration we seek are in front of us, yet we push them aside because they don’t look like what we expected or hoped for.

Today is one of those times.

This guy (me), is quietly intense.  And for good reason.  It’s a short message that will help you understand:

  • Why I write five daily blogs
  • Why excuses are lame
  • The secret approach (no one wants to admit)

Additionally, this video will challenge you about your approach, not just for health, but for everything.

Here’s a simple, quick, little test to gauge your determination to transform yourself into a better, more effective adult.

It’s pass or fail.

SHRM Knows Next

Maybe, Maybe Not
Maybe, Maybe Not

Do you know next? Most likely, you don’t.

I didn’t either, until I clicked here.

Come to find out, I do know next.

It’s one of the special gifts I have that looks stupid, antagonistic, even moronic.

Do You Know Next?

Everyone has special gifts they bring to the table, value they add to their organization

Often, for myriad reasons, these gifts, these talents, go unnoticed.


Because the employee’s gift is so different from the status quo that it looks crazy.  Moronic.  Maybe even stupid.

Just like Hugh MacLeod stated a few days ago.

SAS Number One Employer


Fortune has named SAS the number one employer to work for, again.

Why?  You’ll have to read the article to find out, but you can bet CEO “Dr. Goodnight”, is using common sense and the estimable ROI that comes with following your gut – that being loyal begets loyalty.
