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
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
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.
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
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
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.”
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
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
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.
There is an episode of How I Met Your Mother called the Bracket and in itMarshall has to pretend like he’s minding his own business. His problem is he doesn’t know what to do with his hands. Up until a few weeks ago, I had the same problem meditating. Nice seque, huh? My initial guided sessions didn’t really give any advice, so I did what any inquiring, self-motivated person would… Read More »Daily RICHual #89: What do I do with my hands?
