Quit Being Talked Onto the Wrong Path

One of the most important lessons I learned from my 17 years in large corporate is to not let others talk me into things that aren’t right for me.  Have you ever been talked into doing something that you “just knew” wasn’t going to end up going well?  (…and it didn’t!) I have, and I ended up

It’s Time To Jump In Over Your Head!

To be In Over Your Head means to be or become involved in a situation in which you do not have the necessary skills, knowledge, money or know-how to succeed.  Sounds miserable, difficult and like it would require a lot of work to overcome.  Who wants that?  Most people don’t!

Quit Whining—You’re Thirty Years Old

Nothing comes easy in life. Nothing! Zip, Zero, Nada, لا شى (that’s Arabic for nothing). If something did come easy for you, hang on tight, because it most likely won’t be around for long.

How to Be More Human

I think it’s fun to be human, but it seems lately I run into humans who aren’t enjoying it.  While waiting in line at 7-11 today I witnessed a human get angry when his lottery scratch off card didn’t win him millions.  His vocabulary burned its way from one of my ears right through to the

Your Words are Not Words

Be careful using corporate jargon and business speak.  People never talk like that once they leave the office.  When I hear an especially “fluent” corporate jargon speaker I imagine them at the dinner table talking to their kids: “Don’t drink the Kool-Aide at school, I am empowering you to make your own decisions when it comes to
