Thinking

A couple of my posts in the recent past have triggered some “interesting” in-person/offline reactions — people have said that I am “too philosophical” or that I “want to live in an ideal world.” I’ve been told some of these issues don’t concern them (or me, for that matter) and never will … so…

editing is critical

One of the most critical aspects of writing is often the one most overlooked: editing. Everyone thinks they can write. But there is a difference in writing, and writing well. That difference is where the editor comes in. Looking to trim unnecessary words, making expressions stronger, paraphrasing quotes, moving critical information to the top,…

Social Media

What is the first thing you do when you wake up? Stretch a little, drink a glass of water? Rub your eyes and will your body into leaving the warmth of the bed? That used to be me, a couple of years ago. I’d lie curled under my Jaipuri quilt, gazing out the window…

Civility: A golden rule

Is this Civil?

Sitting across the board room conference table you have a disagreement with your colleague — do you shout and tell them to shut up because you know you’re right? Do you stand up defiantly, raise your hand, and say, “You are useless. You have no idea what you’re talking about. Get out!” Do you…

As I read Tony Anders’ inspiring blog post about the journey of a thousand miles starting with a single step, I was struck by this line: I have found that for me, movement creates motivation, and motivation turns into momentum! This sentence stayed with me. I had not realized that this is exactly what I have…

@ Crossroads

Over lunch one day a friend was telling me about Chip Conley‘s book, How Great Companies Get their Mojo from Maslow. She was impressed with his philosophy of using the model for personal success and translating that to businesses. Taking it from one individual’s “peak experiences” and applying them to corporate transformation. Part of…

Think Before You Post

Yesterday the European Union celebrated Safer Internet Day with the theme Think B4 U Post. Although the message was aimed at teenagers, there’s a lot that adults can learn from it. I see Facebook status updates from friends and acquaintances detailing the contents of their breakfast, lunch, and dinner. They talk about their daily…

Keep the momentum going

blog

When I started this blog last year, I had every intention of populating it with good content on a weekly, if not daily, basis. But within a couple of weeks, the enthusiasm fizzled away. I switched jobs, went on a two-week safari adventure, and then got busy with … life. You know how it…
