Choosing between trash and beauty

Share this:

Choosing Between Trash and Beauty We can be standing in front of a beautiful nature scene and give our focus and attention to the piece of litter at our feet. We can be standing in front of the landfill and give our focus and attention to the wildflowers growing at our feet. We always get […]

No offense meant

Share this:

No Offense Meant I overheard a conversation today where the guy said, “no offense meant” and then he used a racially derogatory expression to a member of that race. Obviously, if we ever think “no offense meant”, we are about to say something that is going to be offensive. And, the best plan here is […]

Effective communication

Share this:

Effective Communication Effective communication (effective selling, effective speaking, effective relationship building, effective persuasion, effective discussion, effective asking for what we want) starts with us getting our attention off of ourselves and onto the other person or onto the “we” that makes up the relationship. If our attention is just on ourselves and how that other […]

Start with Why

Share this:

Start with Why There are lots of things that we need to do, or should do, or would be a good thing to do that we don’t get done. Instead of just viewing these things as another item on our to-do-list, we can ask ourselves “why is this important?” If we have a good answer […]

Christian pirates

Share this:

Christian Pirates I was talking with an Alaskan commercial fisherman today who described a group of other commercial fishermen as “Christian pirates”. The “pirates” are intentionally violating the fishing regulations so that they can catch more (and earn more). And, the “pirates” are known Christians.

Share this:

It is Not Up to Us Whether the Fish Bite We left the house at 4:00am this morning and arrived in Homer Alaska at 5:30pm Colorado time. So of course, I was ready to start fishing as soon as possible Within 10 minutes, I hooked a nice salmon and got it to the beach 3 […]

Who’s evaluating who?

Share this:

Who’s Evaluating Who? Most people’s orientation when interacting with a prospect is that they are being evaluated by the prospect. The prospect is determining whether business will be done. Let’s flip this. Let’s go into those meetings looking to see if the prospect is someone we want to work with, someone we would enjoy working […]

Procrastination = Resistance

Share this:

Procrastination = Resistance We can always find a “good” reason to not do something. This procrastination happens because we have some sort of resistance to doing that thing – and often this resistance is happening at a non-conscious level, outside of our awareness. The resistance could be something like: It won’t work anyway What if […]

The confusion about forgiveness

Share this:

The Confusion About Forgiveness Forgiveness is a huge thing for our peace of mind, our quality of life, our happiness, and our capacity to be blessed. However, people often have a hard time forgiving. This is because of a fundamental misunderstanding about what it means to forgive. Forgiveness is something we do for ourselves not […]

Obligation and False Obligations

Share this:

Obligation and False Obligations We often manufacture a sense of obligation. This then has us be trapped and not have freedom of choice. We cannot do what we want or what would be best for us because we owe someone. However, most of the time, these obligations are not real. They only exist in our […]
