I have never really been involved in sports or physical activity, besides horseback riding and briefly, volleyball. The most rigorous exercise I do consistently is walking. I have done yoga for a little while – but rarely push myself physically. I don’t like to sweat. But I know the positive effects of exercise – the … More Get Your Head in the Game
The first time that Jorjia and I heard the saying that the only one that truly takes a new measure of a man is a tailor, was at a leadership convention.

I felt nausea come over me, my heartbeat quickened. Tears welled up and I refused to let them fall. “Stay strong for Michael,” I thought to … More You’ll Never Throw Again, You Are Done.
It’s a funny thing, happiness. Sometimes seeming so elusive to me, yet occasionally I see other people who seem to have happiness as almost a constant companion. Then I wonder, what is their secret? Often, I don’t even realize that I am not happy until I recognize that I feel unhappy and am suffocating in … More If You’re Happy and You Know It…
I woke up this morning to read yet another “Thanks for your time, but we are not interested in hiring you” email.
