How Do You Spell Success?

Do you remember that old Rolaids commercial? “How do you spell ‘relief’?” “R-O-L-A-I-D-S” What a great campaign. “When you want relief from heart burn and acid indigestion – Rolaids.” I still remember it after all these years. Recently I was out for a coffee with a friend of mine I hadn’t seen in quite some time. We both started businesses …

It’s probably nothing new, but in this age of instant access to information through social media we are being inundated with the unsavory details of leader’s private and public lives.

Is your net worth greater than your self-worth?

I have a very good friend who went through a powerful process a number of years ago in regard to his self-worth.  He and his father owned a very successful agricultural business – a massive farm.  They were approached by a buyer and offered a ridiculous amount of money to sell.  After some degree of consideration they decided to cash …

I sat there in the restaurant an arm’s length from their breakfast table watching the entire encounter transpire. I was encouraged. I was appalled. One got it. One didn’t. Randy Carlyle got it. The other former Winnipeg Jet – who shall remain nameless – didn’t get it. The Jets were catching an early morning flight out to their next game. …

“Hey man, that song sounds great, but you need some boogie woogie piano for it to really work.” “Maybe, but we don’t have a piano player in the band, so who’s gonna play?” “Me!” And with that the pizza delivery guy, who looked remarkably like Fidel Castro, began to talk himself into playing some piano riffs for Takin’ Care of …

“Ok, I’ll come by your house at 3:00?” “Ahhh, sure.  No wait, come by at 3:30.” “What’s up?” “I have to move our washing machine.” “Well, I’ll give you a hand.” “No, don’t worry about it.  Cheryl and I can do it, come by at 3:30.” I pushed a little more about helping out, but my buddy insisted that he …

I got together for dinner with a very good buddy of mine recently. I have known this man for over 30 years, and we have experienced a lot of life together.
