What is the holdup?

When a business hits a plateau or even a downturn, the business owner typically looks to the usual suspects: strategic planning, marketing, recruiting and developing better talent, setting new goals, and tactics to improve financial results. These are all critical areas to constantly improve. But they are not enough.
 Unfortunately, business owners sometimes ignore the one factor that might really be keeping their businesses from taking off: the business owner’s belief systems. Many business owners have beliefs that limit their ability to grow ... Read more

Stand Up To Yourself

  Have you let yourself off the hook too easily? “Stand up for yourself!” This statement was used by someone who thought they were encouraging a meek or quiet person who was being bullied in some form or another. To stand up to yourself is another thing altogether. For some of us there is two differing thoughts on occasion; the one for us and possibly one against us. The negative part of your self that seems to work against everything your true and whole ... Read more

How well are you leading your employees?

All leaders have had leaders at one time or another. I bet you can name the good ones as well as the...not so good ones off the top of your head. Which one are you? Employee engagement may be the best barometer to assess how well you are leading in your position. According to American and Canadian statistics, less than 20% of employees are truly engaged at work. Between 60-70% are not engaged at all with the balance somewhere in between. ... Read more

It’s your decision, isn’t it?

“I’ve changed my mind.” is a full sentence. Just like “No.” we need not say more. Do we “need” an explanation from others when they say this to us? Why? Does a decision really need to be explained or defended? Is it really our business? Could it be about respecting others and the decisions they make for themselves? Is it just a bad habit that can be amended by no longer asking for an explanation? Just wondering what you think… Read more

Give peace a chance

I didn’t know what peace really meant. When I was young it meant a very small portion of something as there were eight of us to share and as kids our piece was always small. I figured out the difference as I grew up. As a teen it came in the saying “Peace, man”. There was “give peace a chance” that John Lennon said in the 60’s, from a bed holed up in the Queen Elizabeth Hotel with Yoko Ono in ... Read more

Is home where your heart is?

They say that home is where the heart is. Who are ‘they” anyways? Well the heart of my home is the kitchen. Actually it is where I am sitting right now, on a stool at the counter with a cup of tea at my right, even though I am a lefty. I can’t stop writing and want my tea hot so there you have it. When family and friends come over for a meal or to commiserate over a cup of tea, ... Read more

What are you postponing right now?

What are you postponing right now? Worrying about “it” is not an effective way of dealing with “it”. All you have done is keep the negative energy around it alive. Facing it and clearing it from your life instantly adds energy to you. Makes you lighter somehow. Even if the “it” was painful or difficult, you are now able to let it go and move on to something else. Life was meant to live, not to be postponed to a later date. ... Read more
