Go-Getters Are Also Good

Some “Twitter tweets” (still can’t get a handle on those terms) 🙂 have been…er, tweeted of late asking, “are you a go-getter or a go-giver?” The implication is that, while being a go-giver is a positive thing, being a go-getter is not. So, I’d like to clarify something, if I may. My awesome coauthor, John…

Of Fear And Consciousness

Now, just to set the record straight, I don’t know the meaning of the word “fear.” However, I’m extremely well-acquainted with the words “terrified”, “frightened” and “brk brk brk brk brkkkkk” (sound that chickens make). 🙂 Such was the case this morning as I went in for a very simple procedure to remove a growth just…

Be First, Be Fast, Be…Friendly? Part Two

In Part One   we  learned from a couple of true business geniuses that – in a business venture – speed of action and being different are two keys to success.

REALLY Want To Defeat Socialized Medicine? Then You’d Better “Change The Argument”

Well, it’s coming down to the wire; the Obama Administration is perhaps just weeks away from enacting legislation that will put our loved ones’ health in the hands of a colossal government bureaucracy comprised of nameless/faceless administrators, drive up job-killing taxes through massive spending, create huge waiting lists for life-saving procedures, cause a shortage of doctors, significantly…

Larger Than Your Present Place, Part 2

In Part One we discussed a productive mindset for advancing within the company for which you’re working; be “larger than your present place.” This means adding so much value “above and beyond” what’s expected that you simply no longer fit your position, are eventually noticed for such, and promoted. Of the many excellent responses to the…
