    Power Networking Floating on the Caribbean

    I am in Cancun last summer floating on a raft in the Caribbean Sea when I float by another guy floating on a raft in the Caribbean Sea. This “floater” turns out to be a Senior Vice President at IBM. When he asks me what I do, I tell him I help my clients increase […]

  • The Power of Showing Up

    The Power of Showing Up

    I had an amazing experience last weekend, testimony to the power of showing up. Robert and Bonnie Butwin are two of the finest people I know. I promised them I would speak at their first public seminar, wherever and whenever it was. They decided on beautiful Napa Valley, California. Last Friday, I left my house […]

    “Imperfect Action Beats Perfect Inaction!”

    — Your humble Blogmeister If I said this once, I’ve said it 10,000 times. And that’s just to myself.

    The Year of New, The Year of YOU!

    Life is so tenuous. It changes forever in a moment. With a natural disaster wreaking unspeakable horror, people of the world have come together as never before.

  • NO More Fear!

    NO More Fear!

    Face Down the Fear Gremlin… I’m going to tell you something personal, in the spirit that a shared experience will enrich you or someone you know. It hard to admit it to myself, even harder to admit it to you. It’s worth the risk if it helps you or someone you care about. It’s two […]

  • No-Box Thinking™

    No-Box Thinking™

    To play and win the new game, it’s wise to embrace no box thinking. Outside the box thinking is really just inside a bigger box. You’re still bounded. Go beyond outside the box. Throw the box away. As my friend Clay Cotton says, “What box?” Re-start, right now, wherever you are with a clean slate. […]
