Daily RICHual #97: The Anti-Jerk Rant Part 1

There has been an unfortunate phenomenon that has returned since our Stay at Home orders have been loosened, that is people acting like jerks on the road and ESPECIALLY in stores. I guess when you’ve been confined to your home for a while and have had limited opportunities for social interaction, jerks have fewer chances for jerkiness. Well, all that has changed.

Day 29: Re-Calibrating

Not really much to report on Transformation Road. Optimism rules.I call it transformation, what it really seems to be is more of a re-calibration. It’s not that I am desiring to be someone new. This has always been me on the inside. I’m mostly attempting to regain the physical part of who I used to be. Hopefully that makes sense.Anyway, five straight weeks of 40 miles or more, an addictive… Read More »Day 29: Re-Calibrating

Daily RICHual #96: When the Going Gets Tough, Back to Basics

Having a tough time in Corona world? Someone once said, when the goin’ gets tough the tough get goin’. A fabulous sentiment, by the way, but how does that actually work in the world of sales? Well, it works best when you and your business are grounded in the basics. We all have it in us to reach back and rely on our basics to achieve when troubles arrive. Maybe… Read More »Daily RICHual #96: When the Going Gets Tough, Back to Basics

Daily RICHual #95: Pivoting much?

One of the things I’ve had to do in the last 10 weeks is embrace the online course. Whether it’s been Facebook LIVE, Adobe Connect, or ZOOM, it has been a change to have to deliver content in this different fashion. It has been, using a nice buzzword, quite a PIVOT in my business. So as I am pivoting during this time, it causes me to wonder how that pivot… Read More »Daily RICHual #95: Pivoting much?

Daily RICHual #94: Rain Delay

I just heard an amazing analogy on a Gary Vaynerchuk podcast. Alex Rodriguez was discussing how his businesses were dealing with the Corona Virus situation and he likened it to a rain delay in a baseball game. He said his manager, Joe Torre, used to say that some guys went back into the clubhouse, had a burger or two, took a nap. Others hit the batting cage, got on the… Read More »Daily RICHual #94: Rain Delay

Daily RICHual #93: Lovin’ It!

Two quotes collided in my brain this morning. First Gary Vaynerchuk said “Laziness comes when you’re chasing money instead of a game where you love the process.” Simon Sinek said, “When we work hard for something we don’t believe in, it’s called stress. When we work hard for something we do believe in it’s called passion.”

Daily RICHual #92: Neuroplasticity

I was reading an article yesterday and it mentioned neuroplasticity. It was one of those words I hadn’t heard in a while, not surprisingly as there are few instances in casual conversation where someone might say, “So how’s your neuroplasticity?” The idea, in the simplest of terms is that our brains grow. It can occur with the altering of neural synapses and pathways as well as other changes at the… Read More »Daily RICHual #92: Neuroplasticity

Daily RICHual #91: Happy Memorial Day

Memorial Day began in 1868 as a way to remember and honor those who died while serving in the military.    Memorial Day is also looked upon as the unofficial beginning of summer and here in the Denver Metro area as being the day 50,000 + runners and walkers gather for the Bolder Boulder.   I’m not sure but it just seems to me that too often we forget this… Read More »Daily RICHual #91: Happy Memorial Day

Daily RICHual #90: Nothing is something today!

Sometimes the Daily RICHual is silence. Sometimes when there is little or nothing on your mind, it is best to leave it that way. Is nothing something? Today it is and THAT is your Daily RICHual.

Day 18: Well, THAT was a surprise!

I’d just got in from 5 miles in the Cherry Creek State Park, which was GORGEOUS this morning. Barely a cloud in the sky, cooler temps than the previous two days, and a nice chat with my youngest son, Ryan.So, I send him off to head to bed (he works nights at Amazon) and decide it’s shower time. I’m feeling a little down, slightly stressed, monstrously fat, and as I… Read More »Day 18: Well, THAT was a surprise!
