No matter what you do in your career or vocation, every one of us has had multiple instances of being stuck. Searching for ideas or solutions, or facing a problem with hands on hips as if a snow white dove will miraculously appear and drop the solution into your empty head.  If you go to..

January is coming to a close and many of us have already broken our New Year’s resolutions. Take comfort in the fact that you are not alone. I don’t know how many resolutions are made each year or how many resolutions are broken by year’s end. I guess Google could provide me with the answers..

 Several months ago in a Penn Emblem management training session, the moderator asked us a simple question… “What do you do?” Several answers were offered, most taken from our various company mission statements.

I sat through a training class the other week that dealt with implementing change and the challenges associated with it. Let me state for the record – I am pro change. I believe there is a better way to do things. Our job is to find that better way and implement it. I know it..

It Never Ends

Last week my wife and I watched our younger son graduate from Virginia Tech. There were thousands of graduates receiving all types of degrees – bachelors, masters, and doctorates. For years the graduates spent countless hours going to class, studying in the library, writing papers, making presentations and taking exams so that they could reach..

This past weekend I watched the Broad Street Run in Philadelphia. It is a 10-mile run right through the center of the city. My son and his fiancée were running in it for the first time. It was a beautiful day for a run – clear skies and cool weather. Thousands of people lined the..

At the end of each baseball season the Phillies have a Fan Appreciation Day where the team thanks the fans for supporting them all season long. It is a nice way to wrap up the season.

This is not a typical blog about perspective – optimist or pessimist, Democrat or Republican, man or woman, pro-this or anti-that. The tragic event this week in Boston actually puts the normal conversation about perspective in perspective. Sadly we seem to get too many reminders about the things that truly matter in life because these..
