Beware the naked man who offers you his shirt.

If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Be careful with incredible offers.

The fine print under the name: “For keeping the magic alive through exemplary performance and commitment to the traditions and ideals established by Walt Disney.”

You are on a path to self-destruction.

You do not have balance.

You confessed it, but it has never been a secret to me.

Not only not a secret, but a glaringly obvious proposition.

When was the last time you celebrated in a significant developmental accomplishment from a direct report?

When is your business (and life) going to slow down.

Here’s what i see coming…

You’re 60, wishing you’d have listened to the whispers.

But you’re never getting that decade back.

Sure your business gave you incredible financial rewards.

Is that feeding your soul in the way you want, at 60?

What example have you set for your children?

Truth and not truth

Truth and not truth.

None of us wants other people telling us what we should or shouldn’t do.

Especially when we were teenagers and adults (parents, teachers, coaches) could, and were expected to, tell us what to do.

And yet.

And yet there have been others who cared enough to share a blind spot i never knew i had.

Of course this is painful.

And once we get past the pain, we are free to transform as we move toward our next birthday.

Can we handle the truth?

1-10 written on a post-it note
On a 10 scale with 10 as high, how much truth do you want today?

Can we handle the truth?

In reality, nothing will help us move forward better than the truth.

Personal growth is transformationally facilitated through truth.

Why would we avoid personal growth?

Dear Boomers

Safer to lie or to tell the trut​h?

lying in public
They were in the news again because Go-Fund-Me just refunded every donor’s money. They are probably nice people in general. Temptation to lie is something every one of us has to wrestle with.

What if you were praised for telling the truth?

Generally, lying when you do something unpopular, unethical, or even accidently, the return on investment for lying seems like the (obvious) best and most valuable choice – life immediately becomes easier when we are “off-the-hook”.

The wrath and responsibility for owning up to something can be avoided or turned into a non-issue if we lie.

What’s in it for being honest?

Trust.

The most valuable of all relationship ingredients.

When our son was about two years old (in 2002), we promised him he’d never get in trouble for telling the truth.

Set your bar(s) high.
