Lessons Learned from Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soapbox

If you’re a flower child of the 70s or a contemporary crunchy, chances are you’re familiar with the 30,000 word label on each bottle of Dr. Bronner’s Magic Peppermint Soap. It’s a marvelous all-natural, multi-purpose liquid soap sold at Whole Foods, Target, Walgreens and health food stores everywhere. I remember the first time I spied […]

The Power of the Pen

Happy New Year – No, I’m not writing about failed resolutions. Rather, something I read this morning on the subject of productivity made me feel validated about bucking the trend toward mobile devices for note-taking during meetings.

And then there’s the drama as we wait to hear the appraiser declare the object’s value.  Storytelling is one of the most powerful techniques we have as humans to communicate and motivate. In […]

A Life Savor Moment

My Life Savor Moment

Suddenly it sneaks up on you. It’s Friday and it’s October. How did that happen? Remember the song, “Cat’s in the Cradle” by Harry Chapin? It’s the lament of a dad who missed the priceless treasure of time with his young son because he prioritized work  … “but there were planes to catch and bills […]
