Sometime a flood of blessing comes all at once! A big promotion, a fancy new job, a unexpected financial windfall. More often it is my momentum that carries me, offers me benefits, protects me. It’s all the things I’ve done every day of my career. Honesty. Integrity. Hard work. Caring about others. Giving away ideas. […]
We are the beautiful sum of all our strengths and weaknesses. If I focus on the good, the positive, the progress then that focus minimizes the energy available for the negative aspects. It reduces negatives’ power. That is not enough. What is needed is a powerful vision of the future that harnesses the good in […]
The Career Mentoring Project has crossed the 20,000 views milestone. Amazing! I started writing this blog as a giveback project, a way of offering up what I’ve learned over the years.

I’m a strong person. Smart. But sometimes I am afraid. Like most people. My fears are the common everyday type. The type most people have I think. Fear of not meeting commitments to others in family to friends or at work. Fear of being taken advantage of, being made to look foolish. Fear that I […]
A reminder from one of my favorite mentors. I hope it encourages you too!
Sometimes I get too complicated about my decisions, my life. When I was younger I was much more carefree about decisions.
