Where is the Liberty and Justice for All that underpins Americans faith that our efforts will bear the intended fruit? If We the People are going to have our say, there is little now that those in power can do about it ethically or otherwise. But be warned: ruthless times can result in ruthless measures […]
Accusations of misconduct surrounding the entertainment icon Bill Cosby are flowing like an avalanche. The man is refusing to comment. Everyone loved Bill Cosby when I was a kid in the 1960’s. “Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids” was a Saturday morning cartoon many children looked forward to; it was funny and kind and treated […]
Never quit. Find the motivation to continue. Never quit. Whatever you do, do it with integrity. Wherever you go, go as a leader. Wherever you serve, serve with caring. Whenever you dream, dream big. And never, ever give up.
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.

Sometimes we forget: today is the only reality we have. We get so focused on the past, or the future, we forget to appreciate TODAY for its benefits and blessings. Now hear this: Today is the day!
When we are children we are told “You can’t understand that now, you are too young”. This same concept applies to career timelines! When I first started working I thought, much like a child, that the world of work was fairly simple. You go to work each day on time, you work hard, you hit […]
Be content with what you have. You will find a still and calm mind in that contentment. When I rejoice in the way things are I connect to reality. I stop fighting what already is. It’s important to realize that “what is” – the present moment – will soon pass. The future, and my ability […]
