Being Brave Means Doing Things That Others Find Questionable Or Even Objectionable

Press on by whatever means necessary.

Boomers, our leadership journey – whether as a parent, volunteer, or corporate professional – rises and falls on our ability to press on in spite of what others may think. Much of what we need to do, others simply won’t understand. Why would we let that ignorance stifle our life?

Twitter For Your Business?

Can Your Business Tell A Story?
Can Your Business Tell A Story?

Twitter for business?

Absolutely.

Heather Lutze, famous SEO expert, and someone I trust, recently posted this article, 5 Key Ways That Twitter Benefits Business.

There are no sure things with the internet, except this – the Internet is a far more powerful tool than any tool created before 1984.

Do You Follow Your Instincts?

Trust You Instinct
Trust You Instinct

This excerpt is from a Speakers and Panelist LinkedIn Group Member, Stephen J Stulic. Relevant and powerful:

“Seek and Welcome Opportunities That Move You Closer To Realizing Your Full Potential.

Be ready when opportunity knocks. And sometimes, by taking strategic advantage of several small opportunities, you may move closer to realizing your full potential more quickly than waiting for one big one to come along.


Therefore, do not be content to wait for a single opportunity to be all that you want it to be; they come in all shapes and sizes and quite often come disguised as something you would not normally expect.

A person truly centered in understanding what he wants will make more opportunities than he finds.

So, when any opportunity to become more is presented to you, be prepared to make the most of it and take action.


Follow your instincts; there is nothing more discouraging than waiting back on your heels as an opportunity ceases to be one.”

Freakonomics And Sam Horn

I Love Freakonomics

You’ve probably heard of Freakonomics.

You probably have not heard of Sam Horn.

I met Sam Horn on LinkedIn.

Sam Horn loves quotes.  jeff noel loves quotes. In fact, jeff noel is addicted to quotes.

Sam feeds quotes to quote-addicted people like me.

She also speaks and writes.  And Sam Horn does them well, very well.

And if you have any common sense at all, you’ll trust me and click here to read this New York Times summary of her book, Tongue Fu.

I have six new ideas from reading this brief, but compelling angle to crafting your pitch, your elevator speech. Seriously.

Not A Big Deal

What Would You Find?
What Would You Find?

Hey, don’t want to make a big deal, or start some internal swirl of guilt or doubt with anyone, so I won’t dwell on this blog thing from yesterday.

But may I please say one more thing before we move on?  Google a few things and see what you get:

  • Your name
  • Your Company
  • A few key words you use

Blogging will accelerate your search engine optimization. It’s not a silver bullet, but then again, and we all know “There ain’t no silver bullet.”

And as a “put your money where your mouth is” kinda thing, Google any of my blog titles (minus the .com, .net or .org).

Maybe there is a silver bullet.

Or, beginner’s luck.
