You’re a good person is the good news (it’s also the bad news)

Blockchain TED talk, worth the 18 minutes it took to watch last night. The link is at the end of this post, don’t click the photo.

Blockchain TED talk…so worth it. Easiest-to-understand explanation i’ve heard so far.

The good news is you’re a good person.

Wait, there’s some bad news too.

The bad news is you’re a good person.

Good is the enemy of great.

Great gets us closer to thriving – personal vibrancy.

Good gets us closer to mediocrity – personal surviving.

Learn, unlearn, relearn.

This is great.

Hoping their meeting went well

It looked early on that i would crush him. He eventually won.


Hoping their meeting with the Board went well.

If it did, this is great news.

If it didn’t, well, this is also great news.

Why would both be great?

Because either way, we know where the Board stands.

Without knowing, next steps cannot be focused.

Christmas Gift for You

Thank You
Thank You

Do you celebrate anything this time of year? Some do and some don’t. No worries.

Today’s post is the conclusion from yesterday’s promise to reveal an important truth. Discovering it is like receiving a very special gift.

Spirituality is simply one of many diversity layers we should all respect, appreciate, value and encourage.

One Christmas tradition that many (not all) participate in is gift giving.

My Family celebrates Christmas and the birth of Jesus. Needed to tell you that so I can tell you this.

And here is my gift to you.

The only thing that can stop you is also deceptively simple.

And this thing that can stop you is so strong, a thousand warriors can not overcome this one lone obstacle.


Merry Christmas.

Number One Thing to Do

Out On The Ledge - Chicago

First of all, thanks for coming back. Can you believe today is Christmas eve?

Do you already now what I’m going to say?

It’s simple. Deceptively simple.

The number one thing to do is to create a compelling vision.  Period.


Not long winded. Not fancy. No big words.

It must also be impossible.  And it must be for some bigger purpose, meaning, not for yourself.

When you learn how to harness this powerful leadership success tip, there is nothing that can stop you. Nothing.

Well, hold on, there is one thing.  Do you know what it is?

Tomorrow is Christmas day and it’ll be my gift to you.

Epiphany For Culture

Good is the Enemy
Good is the Enemy

Driving to Church last Sunday, it hit me. An epiphany. Not a Christian epiphany, a corporate epiphany.

Do you ever wonder why some succeed and some don’t? Or wonder why some achieve excellence and others remain behind, being good or very good?

The secret?  It’s so simple that most of us, myself included, bypass it or drastically discount it.

If you’ve ever read Good to Great or heard from others who’ve described what the bestselling business book is about, you know that good is the enemy of great.

And because of this, there’s one simple technique that we can all learn from history. And I’ll share it with you first thing tomorrow.  Want to guess what it is?
