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..

You’ve got to love March. The dreariness of winter is starting to melt away. The clocks have already sprung ahead. Yesterday was National Pi Day. St. Patrick’s Day is this weekend. College basketball “madness” kicks off next week. Except for that “Beware the Ides of March” thing, it’s a pretty good month. My two sons..

It helps give meaning to what you do or why you are doing it or who you are doing it for. Being inspired motivates us to accomplish great things...

Less is More

All inclusive. All you can eat. No expiration date. Unlimited. 24/7. All of these phrases make me think of quantity not quality. Is more really better? We tend to take more than we need and say more than we should. Texting and tweeting has forced us to condense our thoughts into a finite number of..

No doubt we have all experienced great customer service in our lifetime. The feeling that you get from it is unbelievably uplifting. You want to brag about it to your friends, neighbors, co-workers, and just about anybody who will listen to you (or read your posts and tweets). Since we know how it feels to..

I was listening to my iPod this morning and heard the song Imagine by John Lennon. I heard Imagine many times over the years and always appreciated it but today I heard it differently than I ever had before. I realized what a powerful word “imagine” really is. The world we live in today is the result..
