What the Crocodile Hunter Can Teach You About Your Job

Recently I watched the documentary on Steve Irwin the Crocodile Hunter.  I quickly remembered how excited he gets over each individual animal.  In nearly every clip he says, “This is the best day of my life!”  In the next clip, his wife Terri said, “Steve says every day is the best day of his life.”

Why Park Rangers Lied to Me at the Grand Canyon

Recently I hiked the Grand Canyon rim to rim to rim.  It is a 44-mile hike with about 14,000 feet in elevation.  Only 3 days before the trip, four friends convinced me to go.  The first 22 miles were great fun as we began the hike at 11:00 pm and hiked through the night only

You Are Right

Last week you got in an argument with a counterpart at work and couldn’t believe they blamed the incident on you. “I am totally right!” you think to yourself. I agree with you, you are right. But so are they.  The problem is that too often we focus on who is right (and of course we

Best In Show

Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat and numerous other platforms seem to promulgate the need for us to be “Best In Show!”  Fluffed, washed, prancing and perfect we want others to notice.  But the bigger question is,  “Do you have something important to say?”  What do you have to say to the person sitting next to you at

Marie Kondo says, “If an item doesn’t bring you joy, throw it out!”  I say the same thing about all the clutter in your head.  If your thoughts and personal narrative aren’t serving you well, throw them out!    Too many people are what I call “Hoarder Heads”, individuals who hold on to negativity, guilt,

Pitfalls in Behavior Change: Why You Aren’t Perfect….Yet.

Everyone has something they would like to change about their lives.  Next time you are at dinner with friends and the conversation lags, ask what they would change about their life.  If they are honest, you are in for good dialogue and insights. At a work dinner recently I asked that same question and a

Did I Just Say That OUT LOUD?

There is rarely a meeting where I don’t ask myself, “Did the person think before they said that?”    The workplace is becoming ever more volatile where others are easily offended.  If you are wanting to get promoted, increase your influence, or keep your job, it might be good to THINK before you speak. (period

When Your Choice Is Between Good, Better, and Best

When I hear others proudly say, “I’m so busy or I’m too busy,” as if it is a badge of honor, the individual is telling me they don’t know how to properly manage their time, set priorities or say no.  I think they are mentally lazy.  It feels good to have others think you are

Neurons that Fire Together Wire Together

We laughed at Stuart Smalley and his positive affirmation of “I’m Good Enough, I’m Smart Enough, and Doggone It, People Like me.”  That is until Neuroscience and Cognitive Psychology research showed that Stuart was not that off base on how to create a successful, happy and productive life.   Every day you are physically wiring the
