Preach and Practice

Quotation Well, I’ve heard it stated many different ways. What I grew up with was the quote, “Practice what you preach.” Then, I’ve been given to believe that Charles Murray states it as, “Do not preach what you do not practice.” Same message though. Leaders must be authentic, do as they request others to do […]

What If We’re Wrong – 03

Climate Change Now there’s an interesting topic! Of course there are at least two camps on the climate change thing. One is that the climate is changing and that mankind is causing or at least exacerbating the change. A second camp is that yes, the climate is changing but it’s a natural phenomenon and mankind […]

What If We’re Wrong-Part 02

Robots or Cobots? As many of you know, long before the mainstream business press jumped on the topic, I was fretting over the possibility of a major change in our economy. That change is, in my mind, driven by a lack of jobs due to automation. So will we lose the jobs or will we […]

Uber and Out

Culture Trumps Everything Yes, culture trumps everything AND . . . money still talks. On Tuesday, 6/20/17, Travis Kalanick, the co-founder of Uber resigned, as CEO. He had taken a leave of absence the week prior, but that wasn’t enough to satisfy those wanting to protect their investment in Uber. So, while Kalanick will remain […]

What If We’re Wrong?

We “See” What We Believe I’m not saying we are wrong. And I’m certainly not saying we should plan to be wrong. But what if . . . ? [I think this may well be an ongoing series of posts!] I’ve been thinking more and more about how we’ve gotten so much wrong. From the […]

A Wide Variety of Tastes

The Chef’s Creation Variety is frequently a positive goal to achieve when organizing your life, building an organization, creating a mastermind group or developing a high functioning team.

Big Data, NAI and Manipulation

Signals Everywhere No matter where I go, I leave a digital trail. In my office, I am pretty much connected to the internet 12 hours a day. My ISP knows what web sites I go to (except when I fire up my VPN). And of course each website I visit tracks what I look for […]

Pride

Pride: Every now and then, my parents would let me know that I was getting “too big for my britches.” My father seemed to be especially tuned into those who were prideful—especially if they treated others with disdain.

Greed

Greed and Pitchforks I was listening to podcasts as I was traveling around southern California in my car. I almost skipped the next playlist podcast when I heard the topic was The Seven Deadly Sins. They hooked me before I could safely move to the next podcast. I’m glad that I listened. According to the standard […]
