Halftime of a WEIRD Year

June 30th has come and gone. Half of the year has transpired. So tell me (or someone else or just yourself), how’s it going? Are you on schedule to have the kind of year you planned? Business working? Family? Recreational activities? Other things? I don’t believe in New Years resolutions. To me, any day is a good day to set goals and strive to get better. I do know, however,… Read More »Halftime of a WEIRD Year

Daily RICHual #100: Will There be a 101?

Well, here we are, Daily RICHual#100. This thing began on Martin Luther King day. Jan 20. It was designed to be “Something to get you going, thinking, wondering, or doing each day.” A Daily RICHual. Amazingly, I haven’t missed a weekday the whole time. Sometimes it was easy, other times not so much. Every time, though, it was from the heart. As was mentioned way back, I never really cared… Read More »Daily RICHual #100: Will There be a 101?

Daily RICHual #99: The Quartet, The Healer, and Garth Brooks

When there was just too much violence, politics, negativity, and too much of what some weird producer thought was reality, I stopped watching television…. And that was decades ago. This week, to broaden my horizons a little I took in three things on Netflix that I highly recommend. The first was The Quartet, a story about a retirement home for opera singers and musicians. The second was The Healer about… Read More »Daily RICHual #99: The Quartet, The Healer, and Garth Brooks

Daily RICHual #98: Pandemic of Possibility?

I was listening to the Morning Shakeout Podcast with Mario Fraioli and he used a phrase that I really liked: He used the words, “pandemic of possibility.” It’s given that while this thing we’ve been going through has been horrific in so many ways, it has also been a tremendous opportunity for reflection; of self and how we navigate our relationships with others, as well as an opportunity for growth

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.

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 #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 #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.
