Boring and redundant are part of the path forward for all of us

The old stuff is pretty good, find ways to keep a copy, no?


Revised LinkedIn profile number four… in 24 hours.

Not expecting anyone to read this, yet hope it’s validation of the effort (4th revision in 24 hours) that remains invisible.



Balancing two serious jobs. One with a big, famous company. One with a small, loving Family.

Same person shows up at both.


Been like that 54 years.

The Internet has replaced the exchange of, and revolutionized the organization of, paper business cards and resumes with the digital equivalent. Google your name. Happy with your results? Privacy is gone for good. The keyboard won’t be around much longer either.

International professional speaker to a million people.

Bottom line goal: see you reach yours.

The clearer you are about what you want, the more remarkable the results.

Transforming things using the tools of nature – paradox, questions, and common sense.

Servant, husband, dad, son, brother, uncle, neighbor, leader, author, speaker, runner.

Aggressively unfancy.

Work is only work if you’d rather be doing something else, and truly, the work day begins the night before. Can’t wait for the alarm clock to go off every morning.

Allergic to most pollens, whiners, and mediocrity.



To be crystal clear and not blur any lines, speaking full time for and separately and entrepreneurially for (content is entirely different, completely distinct).


Prudent to note social media is embraced by great organizations. Why? Because customers have embraced social media, and great companies (small or large) embrace what customers embrace.

Any Internet savvy professional knows Google destroys any notion of privacy. Authenticity is the new currency. Live your life so that if someone ever said anything bad about you, no one would believe it.

Sooner or later it becomes crystal clear, life is not a dress rehearsal.

Live like you mean it.

At work. At home.


All day.
