Artificial Intelligence – A New Application

So, one of my last blogs was about how we all suck at communication (yes, me too). If you think you are different or “special”, then you are wrong. If you missed that blog, it’s worth checking out – just click HERE. In the interest of trying to correct this crappy behavior, I just submitted my patent application ...

Communication – We All Suck

Ok – I know the title of this blog is a bit harsh, but it’s true, and you know it as well as I do. And I am not excluding myself here. I try really, really hard to not suck (as Joe Maddon, Cubs manager, used to say), but I do on a regular basis. Maybe I should start the first chapter as Avoiding Communication Anonymous or ...

My Words are My Own

(rant on) I have to get this one off my chest before I stuff my head in the wall.

Anyway, here is the point that I would like you to noodle a bit: WITH EVERY DOLLAR YOU SPEND, YOU ARE ...

Live Dangerously

OK folks - wanted to share this one with you, since I have been really impressed by it on a consistent basis. Which sadly these days is pretty rare. What is this "thing" I am referring to?  It's a Podcast actually - and a very interesting one - every one of the episodes. WARNING - if you have sensitive ears or put ...

Noodle this one

First of all, what does "Noodle this mean", right? I get that sometimes. It means "think about it" and reminds me of the 90s cartoon my kids used to watch called PB&J Otter. When they would try to think of something, they would use their "noodle" and then, of course, break in the "noodle dance".  For your ...

Coffee Shop Meetings

So, we have all likely done it, met someone at a coffee shop for some reason (lots of reasons there).  I have met lots of people at coffee shops for all sorts of reasons.  I have also spent plenty of my work days at a coffee shop as I am blessed with a position that allows me to get my work done there (or anywhere honestly) ...
