Well, are you?

A friend of mine was just verbally threatened by someone he had attempted to do business with.  The deal went badly, not some Hollywood version of a deal-gone-wrong, but certainly not the way either of them wanted.  He was blamed and then threatened. It was unwarranted and because of the way this gentleman deports himself, he didn’t fire a volley …

I Could Hug You For That

“I could hug you for that” I exclaimed as my client noted that her latest struggle was based in making a decision that was actually right in front of her.  She thought she’d have to look further.

And Then One Day

And then one day, they called you “doctor.” And then one day back in middle school, your legs got longer. And then one day all of a sudden, fame hit. And then one day, the contract came through.

False Urgency

You’re pushing to get it all done again, aren’t you? Yeah… it’s mid-year and there are tons of reasons (or excuses) why you’re pushing so hard.  There’s all that stuff that has been on your “to-do” list. There’s all that stuff that’s looming on your calendar.   And all of it is important, isn’t it? It IS important, isn’t it? …
